MEDIUM LEVEL VIOLENCE, MEDIUM LEVEL COARSE LANGUAGE

Director: John McTiernan
Actors: Bruce Willis, Alan Rickman, Bonnie Bedelia, Alexander Godunov, William Atherton, Reginald Veljohnson

High above the city of LA a team of terrorists has seized a building, taken hostages, and declared war. But one man has managed to escape detection...an off-duty cop. He's alone...tired...and the only chance anyone has. Bruce Willis stars as New York City Detective John McClane, newly arrived in Los Angeles to spend the Christmas holiday with his estranged wife (Bonnie Bedelia). But as McClane waits for his wife's office party to break-up, terrorists seize control of the building. While the terrorist leader, Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman) and his savage henchman (Alexander Godunov) round up hostages, McClane slips away unnoticed. Armed with only a service revolver and his cunning, McClane launches his own one-man war. A crackling thriller from beginning to end, DIE HARD explodes with heartstopping suspense..

One of the great action movies - still brilliant to watch even to this day. Remember to always take your shoes with you when you go on a hostage rescue inside an office building full of glass!!!

Great entertainment. Action is fast pace. Bruce Willis was perfect for the role. The bloodied bare feet made me wince a bit (a Lot!!!)

This is without a doubt a true classic "Bruce Willis" movie. It has all the right elements. The story line moves along at a good pace, no one should sleep through this action packed movie. I recommend it as the first one to watch of the Die Hard series (1 - 4 ) . Yes it has been on TV so many times, however nothing beats watching it fully without commercial advertisers spoiling every 9 minutes promoting some rubbish that we simply do not need shoving down our throats repetitively every 9 minutes or so.......DIE HARD ....is a excellent movie.

Not just hard to get this guy to die, but incomprehensible: he should've been dead many times over. A good action movie, albeit with an improbable story line and the action in lift shafts, corridors and other strange passages is often quite confusing.

I know, how bad is it that I haven't seen this flick till now! Anyway, it was fabulous. Willis was awesome and now I can't wait to see all the sequels. It really was well done.

Easily one of the top-5 action movies of all time. A genre setting movie. Without Die Hard, there would be no Speed, Under Siege or The Rock.

Great movie - lots of action, not believable but still worth the watch - great music as well. Go Bruce.
