Bruce Willis: Five Best Moments

From Die Hard to the Whole Nine Yards, we seek out the best on-screen moments from the man who first teamed up ‘yippee-kay-aye’ with an unpublishable obscenity

An action hero who’s equally at home in comedy roles and straight dramaBruce Willis has been an A-lister for 25 years. While his presence in a film isn’t necessarily always a sign of quality.

Here are five of guardian.co.uk favourite moments from Bruce Willis’s filmography, including recommendations from @guardianfilm. Read more here: http://bit.ly/XfzsKv

1. Pulp Fiction

If you rearranged Pulp Fiction into chronological order, this would be the final scene – Butch and Fabienne riding out of town on Zed’s chopper. Who’s Zed? “Zed’s dead, baby – Zed’s dead.”

2. Hudson Hawk

Bruce carries out a fantastically choreographed robbery to the jaunty strains of Swinging On a Star. Fans of his singing might wish to check out his much-derided solo album The Return of Bruno, featuring his cover ofUnder the Boardwalk, a No 2 chart hit in the UK.

3. Moonrise Kingdom

The most recent film on our list, last year’s Moonrise Kingdom, featured Bruce in typically authoritative form as, well, a character neatly summed up in this brief scene.

4. Beavis and Butt-Head Do America

Bruce plays straight man to Mike Judge‘s sniggering simpletons in one of the stupidest, most childish and most consistently funny animated films of all time.

5. The Die Hard films

The most-nominated Bruce Willis moment was him reciting his sweary catchphrase in the Die Hard films. So here it is. It’s probably stating the obvious, but this video might not be for you if you’re offended by bad language.
