Summary
It's Christmas time in L.A. and on the 30th floor of the Nakatomi Corporation building there's an employee party in progress. The revelry comes to a violent end when the partygoers are taken hostage by a group of terrorists headed by Hans Gruber, who plans to steal the 600 million dollars locked in Nakatomi's high-tech safe. Gruber and his henchmen pretend to be politically motivated in order to throw the authorities off track. Gruber has no intention of allowing anyone to get out of the building alive. Meanwhile, New York cop John McClane has come to L.A. to visit his estranged wife, Holly, who happens to be one of the hostages. Disregarding the orders of the authorities surrounding the building, McClane takes on the villains, armed with one handgun and plenty of cunning
