>FATAL DISTRACTION: DIE HARD 2

It's foolish enough that Bruce Willis keeps trundling back and forth across Dulles International Airport in this sequel, single-handedly destroying a squad of highly trained terrorists financed by a Latin American drug lord. But the film is also sloppily edited and written. Watch, for instance, for Willis spending a long scene at a bank of telephones all labeled "Pacific Bell"—in a Virginia airport? And consider how easy it would be to foil the terrorists' plot-forcing commercial-airline pilots to crash-land at Dulles—by using any of dozens of alternate landing sites. On second thought, don't bother. Rent the original, more tightly structured Die Hard instead. (CBS/Fox)
