An all-time-great action thriller, with Willis ideally cast as a wise-cracking cop taking on terrorists inside a high-rise building (actually, it's the 20th Century Fox Building in Century City). Alan Rickman (pictured) makes Hans Gruber a superb, lip-curling villain. McTiernan handles the action sequences brilliantly.
