Die Hard 2 [AKA Die Hard 2: Die Harder] (1990, dir. Renny Harlin)

John McClane intervenes to stop mercenaries from freeing a high-value prisoner from a snowbound airport. Messy serio-comic sequel that bends over backwards to link itself to the first film. It scrapes by on residual goodwill from its predecessor, but that’s about it.

Here’s the trailer.

Final Score (2018, dir. Scott Mann)

An American ex-soldier battles Eastern European separatists holding a football stadium to ransom. Hugely enjoyable Die Hard knockoff that doesn’t take itself too seriously, and which delivers in genre terms, as well as in representing football pretty well in a movie. Fun.

Under Siege 2: Dark Territory (1995, dir. Geoff Murphy)

Second and better of the Casey Ryback movies, this time it’s Die Hard on a train, with Seagal versus a locomotive full of bad hombres led by a gleeful Eric Bogosian. Everett McGill in badass support doing the best Red Grant impression ever.
