A classic of 1980s action films - Die Hard review by RP

Spoiler Alert
06/02/2012

A classic of 1980s action films. While the ever-lengthening chain of sequels became more and more disappointing, this - the first and best – is really quite good. Yes, we know it's all rather far fetched, but Alan Rickman makes a wonderful villain and Bruce Willis (still with hair) does a good job as a tough but lone cop fighting against the odds. When the action begins it is non-stop – right to the last minute, which in an 'action' film is exactly as it should be: no soppy romantic interludes, no lengthy speeches, no wasted time. The goodies are good, the baddies are bad, everyone knows their place. The director, John McTiernan, had previously directed Arnold Schwarzenegger in 'Predator', but this is no muscle-bound 'Arnie' film – the central cop character, while physically fit, is no superman. The film is a little dated after close to 25 years but holds up well. If I have a reservation it isn't about the violence that is portrayed but that there is a little too much f-ing and blinding for my taste. 4/5 stars – highly recommended. It's a great film.

The original but not the best - Die Hard review by JD

Spoiler Alert
23/03/2012

This is for all those wanting total escapism done with a swagger and a wry smile. I am a die hard fan of this genre. The later die hard films have more spectacular scenes but they all make you leave smiling.
