We get it's a 'Die Hard' movie but can we have some logic at work here?
Once John and John Jr. are safe, why do they insist on putting themselves back in harm's way?
I think I prefer it when McClane doesn't cackle about how much fun it is to kill people. He comes off as a straight-up sociopath in this one, and considering how many times he tried to call for help in the original 'Die Hard,' it seems strange that given an opportunity to step aside and let the proper authorities step in, McClane instead decides to go on a murder spree with his son as a bonding exercise. Besides, if they're still trying to finish a CIA mission, why not reach out? Did John Jr. lose the number to call for back-up?
