Die Hard with a Vengeance

In the film, Carver helps John McClane escape from an angered mob, after McClane walks into Harlem wearing a sign which reads "I hate niggers". As he explains to McClane, Carver does this, not out of concern for McClane's well being but rather because he wants to avoid the inevitable fallout which would be caused by a white man being murdered in the middle of Harlem, and the wrath of white cops that may follow. When asked by McClane as to why he came to his aid, Carver replies: Die Hard with a Vengeance, simply known as Die Hard 3, is the third film in the Die Hard series starring Bruce Willis as policeman John McClane, released in 1995. ...

Against his will, Carver is forced to join McClane in completing Simon Gruber's "Simon says" requests. Unlike McClane, Carver is adept at solving the riddles, and on a number of occasions, saves the lives of himself, McClane and innocent bystanders by using wit rather than brawn. McClane and Carver bicker relentlessly but McClane acknowledges and appreciates the help Carver is able to offer, and nearing the end of the film, they've developed a bond and manage to escape another elaborate death trap set up by the flamboyant Gruber. Simon Says is a game for three or more players (most often children). ...
