Hans Gruber : Die Hard Character

Hans Gruber, portrayed by Alan Rickman, is a fictional character and the main antagonist in the film Die Hard. In 2003, the American Film Institute declared Hans Gruber the 46th greatest villain in the past 100 years of film.
Gruber was originally a member of a fictional German terrorist organization named the 'Volksfrei' movement, until he was expelled. Now only concerned with personal gain, he concocts an elaborate robbery scheme using a terrorist pretence as a cover to manipulate the authorities in his plan. He leads his gang of thieves on Christmas Eve to take control of the Nakatomi Tower in Los Angeles and steal the $640 million in negotiable bearer bonds that is being held in a high-security vault. Meanwhile, they also take all of the civilians in the tower hostage with the intention of killing them all to fake his and his gang's deaths to facilitate their escape. However, Hans unexpectedly must match wits with John McClane, a cop from New York City, played by Bruce Willis. McClane eventually drops Gruber from a window on the 32nd floor of the tower, providing ostensible motive for his brother, Simon, the antagonist of the third film of the Die Hard franchise, Die Hard: With a Vengeance. His primary weapon is an Heckler & Koch P7 pistol, but he occasionally wields an Heckler & Koch MP5 like his comrades, and even gets a hold of McClane's Beretta 92 pistol at one point, albeit with no ammunition in it.
