Inappropriate and wrongheaded interruptions reveal the fragile nature of the plot and prevent it from working.

In the first half of Director John McTiernan's movie, Willis wears an undershirt. In the second half he gets rid of it. And that's pretty much it for his performance.

Most of the action is run-of-the-mill Hollywood blood and thunder, but a couple of scenes are unusually reprehensible.

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.

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

For what it is, this is the top model -- flash, bang, and witty one-liners all included.

Die Hard is in many ways the perfectly constructed action film, combining interior tension with exterior explosions.
