Die Hard on a battleship
This one is technically cheating the formula, as Casey Ryback isn’t just a regular guy, or even a cop with some training. He’s a [email protected]#king Navy SEAL, who’s now a cook. But, it does keep to the “evade the bad guys in a contained space” formula, and Tommy Lee Jones is just awesome as the evil CIA guy.
What this one has, that Die Hard was lacking, and I’m not ashamed to admit it, is a naked Erika Eleniak. That really elevates this one.
