Die Hard

Die Hard

What’s in a Name?

The thieves aren’t the bad guys. The media is. Or are they? Let’s name names.



It’s worth noting, as regarding the lack of real terrorists in the film of Die Hard, that in the original novel is is based on (‘Nothing Lasts Forever’ by Roderick Thorp) the attackers are not only actual terrorists, but the Nakatomi Corporation is a proto-Enron ‘bad’ megacorp, the reason for the attack being revenge not money… it would be interesting to see if a similar plot could be made into a film these days.
