Die Hard 2 in HD is hilarious

by jreilly on Dec.07, 2009, under Movies

Not only does HD make new movies and shows better, it makes older movies from the pre-HD era even more awesome. Case in point, one of my favorites: Die Hard 2. Director Renny Harlin probably never expected that this scene would be seen in such clarity. These images are from a 30 second sequence where a terrorist on top of some scaffolding falls and is crushed by said scaffold. A tense and brutal scene when viewed in standard definition turns into something else when viewed in HD:

Actor

Stuntman (with gray hair!)

Actor, again

Actor, again

Hilariously fake dummy

What the... seriously?

And this is just one example. The movie is packed full of action-scenes-turned-comedy when seen in HD.
