|Welcome to the Die Hard scenario wiki|
|The Die Hard Scenario Wiki is a collaborative website dedicated to sharing information about the films related to the concept of Die Hard, which revolutionized the action genre and led to the creation of movies that have the scenario of Die Hard, such as the pre-dated film Commando (which was by the same writers and producers), the Die Hard film series, Hard Boiled, Under Siege, Passenger 57, Cliffhanger, Speed, GoldenEye, Sudden Death, Broken Arrow, Executive Decision, The Rock, Star Trek: First Contact, Air Force One, Panic Room, Phone Booth, Cellular, 16 Blocks, Snakes on a Plane, Taken, Buried, Olympus Has Fallen, White House Down, The Raid, Dredd, John Wick, The Equalizer and Run All Night, among others related to the Die Hard concept. This is a growing wiki and any help in detailing articles will not go unappreciated.
As with any groundbreaking film series, such as Jaws, Star Wars, Alien, Basic Instinct, Jurassic Park, The Sixth Sense or Fight Club, they will always have their imitators. Most Die Hard Scenario movies feature an enclosed (although this is not necessary to the plot) location taken over by heavily armed criminals or terrorists and one lone hero who must find their way out of the mess and save the day! There are two primary types of this film genre: the original Die Hard clones, which use a single location, or the newer Die Hard clones, which either use entire cities or a wide variety of locations, yet still maintain the same basic feel to the story.
The wiki format allows anyone to create or edit any article, so we can all work together to create the site. Because this is a growing Wiki, any help detailing and expanding articles will not go unappreciated. Check out the FAQ to help you get started!

Mike Banning is a hero that America needed. Played by versatile Gerard Butler, the main protagonist from Olympus Has Fallen, Banning is arguably one of the top action heroes in the Die Hard scenario films since John McClane of Die Hard series. Banning can kill his enemies in effective ways and his enemies have underestimated him...A former Special Forces soldier-turned-Secret Service agent haunted by his failure to save The First Lady of the United States from a car accident. Now living in disgrace, Banning has become a troubled workaholic in the U.S. Treasury. When a group of North Korean terrorists, led by cold-blooded Kang Yeonsak, have seized control of the White House, he sneaks in the building during the initial assault and soon becomes the only counter-terrorist agent inside the besieged White House when all others were killed. With the president held hostage, Banning first rescues the president's son to keep the terrorists from using him to force the president to cooperate with them. Now his next priority is to rescue the president, kill the terrorists and stop an even greater threat to the entire United States of America with his extensive inside knowledge of the White House and all of his training. And the terrorists better stay out of his way...
