Brief Synopsis: "John McClane is an off-duty cop gripped with a feeling of déjà vu when on a snowy Christmas Eve in the nation's capital, terrorists seize a major international airport, holding thousands of holiday travelers hostage. Renegade military commandos led by a murderous rogue officer plot to rescue a drug lord from justice and are prepared for every contingency except one: McClane's smart-mouthed heroics."

    Bryan Lienesch83 - Slightly better than the first. How do I know? I don't. But for whatever reason the same wintery atmosphere seems to make the two films very comparable.
