'Die Hard with a Vengeance'

How it ends: John McClane gets the bad guys, shooting down Simon's helicopter and recovering the stolen gold.
How it was supposed to end: In the original, Simon gets away with the gold and a down-and-out McClane hunts him down in Europe to challenge him to a game of rocket launcher Russian roulette. This ending was cut because producers thought it made McClane look too sadistic and vindictive.
