    Fun action flick!

    I only recently watched Die Hard for the first time, although it'd been on my to-watch list for quite a while. I actually really enjoyed it. It had all the classic action film tropes: foreign-language-speaking bad guys, snappy dialogue, big, impressive explosions, absurdly incompetent police and federal agents, romance, and even, though I truly hate the word, bromance. In addition, I got to see Bruce Willis and Alan Rickman in two of the roles for which they're most famous. A particular treat in Alan Rickman's case, as I've managed, by some minor miracle, to miss seeing him portray a truly villainous character thus far...and Hans Gruber is an excellent villain! I'm not sure I'll immediately run out to see the sequels, but I definitely enjoyed this film enough to want to see what happens to John McClane next.

    Die Hard: Quintessential Defining Action Movie

    Die Hard was the first and star making vehicle of excellent actor Bruce Willis. Here he plays his most famous role as NYPD John McClane, a cop who travels to LA to visit his estranged wife Holly Genaro [Bonnie Bedellia]. Upon arriving at the Holly's company Christmas party in a massive skyscrapper, terrorists led by Hans Gruber [Alan Rickman from "Harry Potter"] hold all the employees attending the part hostage as McClane narrowly escapes and attempts to fulfill his duties as a police officer and foil the terrorists plans while attempting to contact outside local authorities. What follows is a non stop thrilling action roller coaster of a movie. Bruce Willis' dry humor is hilarious, the action is awesome if somewhat unbelievable, the villian is well played, and supporting roles of his limo driver, the twinkie eating LA cop who comes to his aid, and the nosey reporter seeking fame are all great. Even Bruce once said that of the first three Die Hard movies this one was his favorite. Watch it, if you like cool movies you won't be disappointed! Check out the new Die Hard movie it's awesome.

    The Quarterback Is Toast!

    "Die Hard" brought a much-needed new perspective to the action genre, and although Bruce "John McClain" Willis is awesome, most of the credit must go to Alan "Hans Gruber" Rickman, the most erudite and charming (and "John Phillips"-clad) villains of all time (I believe that the AFI agrees) and his team of Eurotrash bad boys. This movie was a pleasant relief from the numerous Schwarzenegger and Stallone films (not that I don't love some of them) featuring one lowest-common-denominator catchphrase and a million explosions. This movie, on the other hand, has, in addition to a million explosions, witty dialogue, a great plot, engaging characters, and a satisfying ending.

    so much action you'll choke on it

    Try if you must, but Die Hard is the best action movie out there. No other movie can beat it with its contstant shoot outs and explosians, with the occasional memorible lines. Rent it, buy it, just remember to take it in small doses it's a lot of movie.
