Radio Times

This is the action thriller that minted Bruce Willis's career, launched a franchise and still stands as a giant of the genre.

For all its moments of almost overwhelming cheese, Die Hard is still the definitive action thriller.

Within the narrow framework of the hard-action genre, Die Hard is almost as good as it gets.

Willis gleefully strips down the action movie to a pretend game for children who like to fire guns and shoot bad guys. Machismo may never be the same.

Die Hard is probably the most manipulative movie I've seen this year, but since it makes no bones about being manipulative and does it so well, this not only isn't a problem -- it's fun.

Die Hard is an action picture with a capital A. In fact, you might as well go ahead and capitalize the whole darn word.

The very pinnacle of the '80s action movie, and if it's not the greatest action movie ever made, then it's damn close.

McTiernan, who directed last summer's Predator, composes the action cleanly and logically, making good use of Jackson DeGovia's elaborate post-modernist set-the building becomes something of a character in itself.

... Not only the best action movie ever made but one of the very best of any genre.

Undoubtedly, it's dated in some respects, but as a pure actioner Die Hard remains timeless.

John McTiernan's thriller-actioner is well executed, boasting a strong performance from Bruce Willis, which made him a big-screen star.

Die Hard is as high tech, rock hard and souped up as an action film can be.

A serviceable if rather overextended and overblown adventure thriller.

Great escapist action, but it's still nothing more than an action movie %u2013 cinema's version of a nice, tasty hamburger.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

The pumped-up, high tech surprise hit of 1988; a triumph of slick direction and lowbrow thrills, marred but not spoiled by a sour aftertaste.
