The defining style of “ Die Hard ” was not just the portrayal of the vulnerable hero who never rises to become an invulnerable fighting machine in the fight against terrorists or is completely superior to all his opponents. The spatially limited setting, which does not allow any of the actors to leave it quickly, has elevated «Die Hard» in combination with the rousing Bruce Willis performance to an absolute genre classic.
It’s no wonder that Hollywood then tried to revisit this very concept over and over again — even though there were, of course, minor deviations here and there. » Red Alert » from «On the Run» creator Andrew Davis is one of the most successful imitators to have made it easy in the wake of «Die Hard». The 18+ cult hit is now available on a Disney+ subscription .

That’s what «Red Alert» is about
The USS Missouri belongs to the old iron. That is why the warship is to be finally retired after a very last voyage. Soon after casting off, the ship’s cook Casey Ryback ( Steven Seagal ) once again clashes with First Officer Krill ( Gary Busey ), who has absolutely nothing for Ryback and his attitude and unceremoniously locks him in the refrigerator. Meanwhile, a surprise birthday party is organized for the captain.
A band and a stripper ( Erika Eleniak ) are brought on board by helicopter. The party is in full swing, but then something happens that nobody does justice to: the musicians, led by the mad William Stranix ( Tommy Lee Jones ), turn out to be heavily armed terrorists who either murder the crew members in cold blood or murder them in the stomach lock up the ship. Their target: the nuclear weapons still on board. But they reckoned without the chef…
