The Miami Sharks have lost three games in a row and their coach, Al Pacino in an intense performance as the only half-decent major character in the film, faces crisis when untested quarterback Willie Beamen an excellent Jamie Foxx becomes an overnight star. Fame goes to Beamen's ego; manager Cameron Diaz ruthlessly wheels-and-deals; and team doctor James Woods sacrifices medical ethics for his career.
Metacritics 80 Desson Thomson Washington Post A firepowered, blood-drenched action picture that doesn't let up. The filmmakers had been looking for a way to have the two characters meet prior to the climax and capitalized on Rickman's talent. The Nakatomi tower is actually the headquarters of 20th Century Fox.
The company charged itself rent for the use of the then-unfinished building. Special, extra loud blanks were made for use in the film to add to the "hyper-realism" director John McTiernan was looking for.
Unfortunately for Bruce Willis, some of these blanks were used for the scene where he kills a terrorist by shooting him through the bottom of a table where the terrorist is standing.
The proximity of the gun to Willis' ear during this scene caused permanent hearing loss for Willis. Only a couple of the actors who played the German terrorists were actually German and only a couple more could speak broken German. The actors were cast for their menacing appearances rather than their nationality.
Hart Bochner's line "Hans Alan Rickman's quizzical reaction was genuine. The scene where McClane falls down a shaft was a mistake by the stuntman, who was supposed to grab the first vent, as it originally was planned. He slipped and continued to fall, but the shot was used anyway; it was edited together with one where McClane grabs the next vent down as he falls.
Director John McTiernan found it necessary to smash cut away from Hans Gruber's face whenever he fired a gun, because of Alan Rickman's uncontrollable habit of flinching from the noise and muzzle flash.
If you look at Rickman's face when he shoots Takagi, you can see him wincing. The scene where Bruce Willis and Alan Rickman meet up was unrehearsed to create a greater feeling of spontaneity between the two actors.
He made a jump off the ledge about three feet high. He injured his knee when he landed and damaged some cartilage in his knee. He was told by his doctor not to put any weight on that leg and he had to use crutches for a week. For the rest of the scene where Hans Gruber is standing and talking to John McClane, Alan Rickman is standing on one leg for the entire time and has a leg brace on under his pants.
The German that the terrorists speak is sometimes grammatically incorrect. In the German version of the film, the terrorists are not from Germany but from "Europe". The line "Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker!
It also translates in Urdu to "here eat this. In the "Making of" Featurette for Die Hard: With a VengeanceReginald VelJohnson said that after his appearances in the first two Die Hard films, he would be frequently teased and joked at by friends and people on the street for his character's obsession of Twinkies, with some people even going so far as to buy twinkies and throwing them into his car while he was inside, and saying things like "Oh we knew you wanted some of those".
When the police dispatcher tells Sergeant Powell to investigate the Nakatomi building, she tells him it is a "Code 2". This refers to an urgent incident where sirens are not to be used. The character of John McClane had not been fully realized until almost half way through production when John McTiernan and Bruce Willis decided that he was a man who did not like himself very much, but was doing the best he could in a bad situation.
Bruce Willis was also shooting Moonlighting concurrently. Willis would shoot his TV series during the day and then come to the Fox lot in the evening to work on this film. In the making-of featurette, director John McTiernan revealed that a vast majority of the exterior shots of the building showing explosions were real, full-scale explosions set off in and around the actual building.
Much of the script was improvised due to the constant screenplay tweaks that were being made during filming. When John McClane runs through the glass shards in his 'bare' feet after Hans has his men shoot out the glass partitions in the computer room, Bruce Willis is in fact wearing special 'rubber' shoes designed to look like his own bare feet.
One can in fact see this if looking closely as his feet appear quite unnaturally large in some of these crucial 'barefoot' scenes. This was based on a book by Roderick Thorp entitled "Nothing Lasts Forever" - a sequel to another book entitled "The Detective", which in was made into a film starring Frank Sinatra.
Because of a clause in Sinatra's contract for The Detective which gave him the right to reprise his role in a sequel, he was actually the first person offered the McClane role, even though he was 73 years old at the time.
Hans Gruber, the terrorist leader, even hums it at one point in the movie while he is on the elevator with Mr. Film composer Michael Kamen at first thought it was a "sacrilege" to use Beethoven in an action movie, telling McTiernan:Ein Ort zum träumen und verlieben.
