Hard Kill (Action)
Bruce Willis stars in this action blockbuster as Stephen E. Rivkin, a brilliant software developer whose company is worth billions of dollars. Their new operating system, Hydra, is set to revolutionise the world, providing access to any piece of information you could possibly want – from almost anywhere. It’s so safe that Rivkin stores his own daughter’s medical records and X-rays on it. Unfortunately for him, he has enemies who still remember the terrors of 9/11 – and they’re determined to avoid any future attacks in any way they can.
