PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Thriller
John McClane and a young hacker join forces to take down master cyber-terrorist Thomas Gabriel in Washington D.C.
This film addresses the apparent continuity error in earlier installments - McClane is afraid of flying in Die Hard (1988) and Die Hard 2 (1990), but not Die Hard with a Vengeance (1995). Here, he explains that he took flying lessons in order to "face his fears."
Clay: I'm sending you the code.
Mai Lihn: Yes, I see that. Thank you.
In the scene where the BMW 5 series is broken into, the car makes a beeping sound when started. The sound that is emitted does not come from this particular model, rather the smaller, cheaper 3 series which relies on an independent buzzer. The more expensive 5 series makes a different sound due to the fact that the car gives all its indications via the car's on-board computer and color display (iDrive) and audible beeps and warnings via the sound system.
After the 20th Century Fox opening logo has been on for a while, it suddenly "short circuits", causing flickering as the the searchlights fade, climaxing in a total power outage.
The unrated DVD (also known as the Ultimate Action Edition in some territories) contains frequent use of strong profanity and stronger violence (bullet hits are more graphically seen with blood spraying out). Also, McClane's signature line is now heard in full, as the gunshot does not obscure the latter part of it.
