*The* seminal '80s action film!

"Welcome to the party, pal."

Die Hard is considered to be the seminal action movie of the 1980s. Produced in 1988, this is the archetypal blueprint for the contemporary action thriller. It has been decades since this crackling action flick first hit cinemas in summer 1988, yet in the 21st century its influence on the action genre is still overwhelming. Die Hard is the smart-mouthed,... read more

When I was a kid, I used to watch it with my dad and I thought it was totally awesome. Later on, I used to underestimate this flick, thinking it was just a decent action movie but not much more than that. Yesterday, I watched it again with Nick, my step-son, and I finally understood why I loved it so much back then and why it is considered as one of the best action movies ever made. Of course, the... read more

"Nakatomi Plaza, Century City, Los Angeles, California It’s a high-rise office building in Century City, Los Angeles, California that houses the headquarters of the California branch of the Nakatomi Corporation, a Japanese company. Why you wouldn’t want to visit: It’s about be taken over, by “career criminals” engaging in “corporate takeover”."

"5.3. rewatch"


Kyle Ellis posted a review 9 months, 1 week ago

“Even if the non-action parts are a tad slow in comparison, that is more than compensated by so many things that makes Die Hard so brilliant.

For one thing the action is explosive and consistently exciting, and the cinematography is astounding being very inventive and colourful. John McTiernon(The Hunt for Red October, Last Action Hero) directs briskly and efficiently, and the pacing a vast majority of the time is exhilarating.

Then there is a terrific score by Michael Kamen, some intelligent and witty scripting and a plot that doesn't feel forced or convoluted. Not to mention some excellent acting. As good as Bruce Willis is, yes his character is somewhat two-dimensional, but he is also resourceful and world-weary and Willis handles this really well, it is Alan Rickman ” read more

Tis The Season For My Fave X-Mas Films & Specials (30 movies items)

"The way I decided that this film (and it's sequel) belonged on my list of personal fave Christmas movies was to ask the following question, "Does watching a movie about a tough, average joe cop crawling around thu air-vents & systematically offing terrorists in various ways that include hanging 'em on a chain or throwing 'em out a window, inspire the holiday spirit within me? " The answer: "Yippy-kay-yay, mother-f#cker!" "

"12.12. Disney+ Uusintakatselu. Melkoista soutamista ja huopaamista tämän kanssa, kun joka toinen kerta on kiistaton mestariteos kaikilla mittareilla ja joka toinen vain lähellä sitä ja enemmänkin "vain" virheetön toimintaelokuva. Arvatenkin nyt jälkimmäistä, kun viimekerta oli ensimmäistä. Rakenteen täydellisyys ei ihan samalla tavalla näyttäytynyt kiistattomana. Hansin ja poikien rakennuksen haltuunotto -jakso tosin on omaa luokkaansa. Kuin myös intensiteetti pyssyjahdeissa. L"
