DIE HARD is a 1988 US action thriller in which a New York police officer battles a group of terrorists who have taken people hostage in an office building in Los Angeles.
There are scenes in which men are shot, resulting in brief blood spurts. There is also a scene in which a man is shot in the head by one of the terrorists, causing blood and gore to splatter onto a glass door panel. Elsewhere in the film, the hero is forced to walk bare-footed on glass when the terrorists deliberately shoot out some window panels. The hero then has to remove the shards from his feet. There is an extended fight sequence that includes a headbutt and repeated heavy punches and kicks, as well as a terrorist being hanged from a length of chain.
There are several uses of strong language ('f**k' and 'motherf**ker'). There is also moderate and mild bad language (for example, 'pricks', 'dickhead', 'jerking me off', ‘shit’, ‘asshole’, and ‘pissed’).
In one scene a woman whose breasts are exposed is found by the terrorists when they enter an office in which she appears to be having sex with a man. There is occasional sight of topless women in magazine pin-up photos.
One of the male hostages is briefly seen snorting cocaine, although he is a negatively presented character whose boastful bravado leads to his death at the hands of the terrorists.
- Sex & Nudity
- Sex & Nudity Reason
Multiple scenes showing women posing sexually on posters at the wall. A couple is running towards the men's restroom while giggling - it's obvious what they're planning to do. Several scenes where a couple is kissing passionately. There is some implied sex, nothing to be concerned about.
There is a woman with brief bare breasts shown. There is also a woman with brief bare breasts shown on a poster.
- Violence & Gore
- Violence & Gore Reason
The majority of the film consists of shootouts and gunplay, as the main character is forced to use lethal force against the bad guys. Many characters die from gunshots, and there is a fair amount of blood.
There is one brutal fight scene in which a character is repeatedly kicked in the face, and the altercation ends when one of the combatants is hung from a chain by the neck.
One character is shot in the groin and waist through a table, and another character is shot point-blank and dies. One character is shot in the head, and the hole in his head, as well as some spattered blood, can be seen.
Two characters get into a brief fight, and one of the characters falls down the stairs and breaks their neck. The dead man's body is then tied to a chair and put into an elevator.
The protagonist drops a homemade bomb down an elevator shaft, resulting in a large explosion, which kills two bad guys.
One character is shot, and falls out of the building to his death, though he isn't shown hitting the ground.
The protagonist's feet get cut by glass that he steps on after many windows are shot out in a gunfight.
There are a few explosions and other large scale carnage, much of which is intense.
Karl and John get into a brutal fistfight, and John is seen to be very bloody. He is getting beaten a few times, then he takes a chain and put it around Karl's neck and hangs Karl to death. This scene is pretty intense
John and Tony get into a fight where John is grabbing Tony from the back and then when Tony and John fall down, John breaks his neck and he dies. Later, Hans sees Tony's dead body, and blood is all over him.
Hans Gruber holds Holly hostage and then John shoots him and another bad guy, and Hans falls through a window. He is seen holding Holly's hand, and when John releases her hand, Hans falls down from the skyscraper and dies, though he isn't shown hitting the ground.
Hans executes Takagi by shooting him in the head. Although brief, the film clearly depicts the gun being fired at close range and a huge bloody spray is shown exploding across a window.
McClane is forced to walk on shards of glass barefoot to escape after the terrorists shoot glass windows in the process of a gunfight. By the end he is dragging his foot across the ground and a large blood trail is seen. He is later seen getting shards of glass out of his foot. This isn't graphic, and the actual shard pulling is mostly offscreen and interspersed with other scenes, quite a lot of blood is seen however.

- Frightening & Intense Scenes
- Frightening & Intense Scenes Reason
Very thrilling. Several shootouts, fist fights and explosions. Most with a degree of blood and intensity.
Rated R for strong violence, language throughout, brief drug use and nudity.
The fight scene between John and Karl is brutal and intense.
To outmaneuver his opponents, McClane desperately hangs from his sub-machine gun's strap in a deep air shaft to get to an ventilation duct. The attempt is depicted from above and it is clearly a unsurvivable drop to the bottom of the building if he falls. As McClane makes his attempt, the strap is undone and he falls, barely managing to grab on to a lower ventilation duct and enter it to safety. This scene is pretty intense.
McClane discovers the villains are going to kill all the hostages when they blow up the roof. He barely manages to drive the hostages back down, dodges rifle fire from two trigger happy FBI agents from a helicopter and escape the roof himself before the explosives detonate and destroy the helicopter.
