Die Hard: With a Vengeance ★★★★½

I just want to take this shooting script around New York the way I want to walk around Dublin with Ulysses. Ending is a bit rushed but that's a minor quibble compared to the excitement of the construction that leads to it, the incorporation of New York's geographical layout into plot movement, the way a focus pull doesn't only shift the dominant object of the frame but character perspective, the unforced connectivity of New York life brought on by its carefully ordered layout. All the architectural precision of the first Die Hard, laid out over an entire city.
