Die Hard 2 - Die Harder

original title: Die Hard 2

Comparison:

  • R-Rated
  • Workprint
Release: Mar 22, 2008 - Author: Scat - Translator: enemy - external link: IMDB
Comparison between the Regular Version (R-Rated) and the inofficial Workprint (WP).

The Workprint of Die Hard 2 contains some story extensions and a little more violence. In few scenes the sound effects and score differ from the Regular Version (the end credit song "Let It Snow" isn't playing in the Workprint). However this cut report does not cover these differences (expect for one scene).

Scenes in brackets are included in the Regular Version and conduce to orientation.
At some points accurate time specification wasn't possible due to heavy recuts.

The following report abbreviates Regular Version and Workprint with RV and WP.
13.11
[McClane loses his gun on the conveyer belt. The Bad Guy loads his gun.]
McClane throws himself on the conveyer belt. A lot of shots are fired at him from the sides. He brachiates downwards, jumps and lands in front of a dog's cage. The dog barks at him instantly. The Bad Guy looks down from where the barking's coming. McClane whispers "Shut the fuck up!"
[McClane looks back to the conveyer belt and spots a few golf clubs.]
Instead of this scene the RV has a shot that is missing in the WP: the Bad Guy reloading his gun.
a total of 32 sec



14.21
[The other Bad Guy seeks McClane with his gun drawn.] A medium long shot of the Bad Guy. [McClane jumps at him from above.] He strangles him from behind. Then there's a shot of the other Bad Guy noticing two cops which entered through the door (this scene is also included in the RV but at a later point).
[McClane and the Bad Guy fall down.]
a total of 5 sec




14.31
Now the RV shows the shot of the crook noticing the cops.
- Sec

14.50
The death of the guy who gets crushed and electrocuted is edited differently in the WP, hence it's shown in different and more shots (including several close up's of the Bad Guy and a long shot of McClane on the transport line.
a total of about 10 sec



17.14
The WP (!) misses the very short shot of the bloody face of the dead Bad Guy before the body bag is zipped up. This seems to be a film tear though because the words of the stewardess in the shot before sound cut off and jumps like that occur about six more times in the movie in similar intervals.
- Sec

42.21
The head shot one of the SWAT guys receive is distantly shown in the RV. The WP provides a close up of that shot which happens to be a lot bloodier.
- Sec



42.57

a few frames

43.59
[McClane kicks the grill off the vent. The Bad Guy catches it instinctively. McClane shoots him.]

1 Sec



52.34
[The stewardess calms an old lady down.]
Afterwards she approaches a little girl that holds a doll in its hands. She pulls the doll out of the seatbelt and tells the girl that it's safer now.
Apperantly this scene was cut for either censorship or moral reasons (cause it's the plane that crashes later in the movie). The doll is the exact same doll McClane finds in the wreckage.

Shot of a screen that shows a diagram of the plane landing.]
