We have seen different movies... I just checked it on hbo+. The ending of die hard has him limping on both feet, he's covered in blood, covered in superficial wounds, his mouth is kinda slack jaw from overexertion, & his wife is kinda half supporting a clearly injured man. The end of die hard 2 he's slightly better without the limp but clutching his wounded arm. That is not a man who looks like he's capable of going back to work as a cop in the morning in either case. Your talking about the hitpoints themselves in action not the makeup crew coming in to reshoot the opening scene. In both movies he does things he knows are dangerous things he doesn't & shouldn't want to do because of the high chance of lethality/severe injury so he goes in with a plan. Even if it's a threadbare plan with a lot of improvisation it's an attempt to be prepared & minimize the risk because John mcclain doesn' expect the makeup crew to fix it so he can reshoot it as he was during the opening scene. The end of die hard3 has him slightly better but samuel L jackso is kind of collapsed on the curb with LEOs checking on his fairly beat to hell condition.Have you never seen a Die Hard movie? McClain should have been dead a dozen times over, wraps serious injuries that should take months of therapy and he's good to go. Or every movie/tv show where bullet wounds are healed by someone pulling the bullet out with a greasy pair of pliers they found lying on the floor*?
In any case, I'm done. Have a good one.
*The bullet is always like 2 inches beneath the skin, in reality the bullets are regularly left in because getting them out would cause more harm than good.
