One line review: The textbook definition of a great action movie.
Movie Title: Die Hard
Actors: Bruce Willis, Bonnie Bedelia, Reginald VelJohnson, Paul Gleason, De’voreaux White
Director: John McTiernan
Genre: Action / Adventure
Method of Viewing: Netflix Online
Location of Viewing: Home
Viewing with: Friends in #Jazzmess
Rotten Tomatoes: 94% – Its many imitators (and sequels) have never come close to matching the taut thrills of the definitive holiday action classic.
My rating: ***** – Fully deserving of it’s Legendary status
My assessment (the first 101 words at least):
Yippie-Kay-Yay Mother Fucker, this is the absolute best definition of what an action movie should be. When watching, I was first afraid that it would be nothing more than a mindless action movie, however, the lovable John McClane and a few other funny performances give this movie a unique shine. Sure, the characters and situations in this movie have been repeated before, but I’ve got a feeling that this movie was the originator of these cliches, not the copier.
