Don't Die Too Hard! (Original Title: La Tour Montparnasse Infernale) is a 2001 French comedy movie, a slapstick parody of the original Die Hard directed by Charles Nemes. Eric (Eric Judor) and Ramzy (Ramzy Bédia) are two dim-witted window washers at the Montparnasse skyscraper in Paris. Working late one night, the pair witness a gang of terrorists seize the building and take its occupants hostage, including the beautiful executive Marie-Joelle, the object of Eric's infatuation (whose real name is Stéphanie and whom also despises Eric). Eric and Ramzy (reluctantly) jump into action to save the day.

The following weapons were used in the film Don’t Die Too Hard!:



Heckler & Koch Mark 23

Terrorist leader Michel Vignault (Serge Riaboukine), nicknamed "Machin" by Stéphanie, uses a suppressed Heckler & Koch Mark 23 as his weapon of choice.
