A great third "Yippee-ki-yay mother f***er"

Detective John McClane isn't having the best time back in New York. He's been suspended from the police force, his marriage is falling apart, and the brother of the villain in the original, Simon Gruber (Jeremy Irons), is threatening terrorist attacks on New York City unless McClane agrees to play his deadly game.
Samuel L. Jackson is great as Willis unwilling partner, a black-racist who is forced to work with a white-guy. The two have great chemistry together, sparking off each other from start to finish and provide a stark contrast to McClane's usual lone-wolf routine. Jeremy Irons plays a wonderful villain that rivals even the performance by Alan Rickman in the first film and his voice is excellent as a psychotic terrorist.
The New York City setting provides great stereo-typed characters, such as the "callous Wall Street-ers" eating popcorn and watching a disaster unfold outside their office window, and the dump truck driver who provides Willis with a tour guide's commentary of the underground water system and its history, in the middle of all the panic and mayhem. The movie is intense and exciting from the first minute right to the last - wall to wall non-stop action. To sum it up in one word: fantastic and a must see for any action fan.
