Die Hard

‘Die Hard’ by the numbers

by W. Andrew Powell

This Friday, February 15, A Good Day To Die Hard opens in theatres, which gives John McClane (Bruce Willis), the New York City police officer, more time to run amok killing bad guys and saving the day. At this point, he can obviously deal with just about anything that comes his way, including villains, bombs, and as we saw in the last film, even a fighter jet, but what exactly has he accomplished in the films so far?

To get you in the mood for some big explosions, gun fights, and bad-guy takedowns, Fox has unveilved their Die Hard infographics, which break all four films down by the numbers, from the original to Die Hard 2 and Die Hard With A Vengeance, to the more-recent Live Free or Die Hard.

What kind of numbers are we talking about?

  • In Die Hard 2, John crawls through 628 feet of air duct
  • In Live Free or Die Hard, 78 cars, 2 helicopters, 1 fighter jet, 1 police cruiser, 1 transport truck, 2 buses, and 1 garbage truck are all totalled.
  • And my favorite? The number of times Zeus yells at John? 12.
