Die Hard Reviews

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

As a grand flourish of cinematic technique, it is awesome; as a human drama, it is disgusting and silly, a mindless depiction of carnage on an epic scale.

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.

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.

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.

The scenes move with such relentless energy and smashing special-effects extravagance that Die Hard turns out to be everything action-genre fans, and Bruce Willis's relieved investors, might have hoped for.

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

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