... Highlighted by Irons, whose slick and sinister Simon is second only to Alan Rickman's Hans Gruber in the pantheon of "Die Hard" villains.

If you ignore the last half, it's quite a good entry.

Less hand-to-hand combat, but still a very violent sequel.

...ultimately closer in spirit to the original than the first sequel.

All in all, it's a fun movie, worthy of its predecessors, but ranking third of three.

Surprisingly more entertaining than you'd expect a third film in a franchise to be.

John McTiernan pulls the stunts off with such finesse that the script problems are almost irrelevant.

The best of the Die Hard movies -- Jackson and Willis are terrific together.

A tepid continuation of the series saved only by some decent action scenes and Willis trading barbs with Jackson. Jeremy Irons is a poor follow-up to Alan Rickman.

Action bits soar, Sam Jackson scores ... the rest is a bore.

It's a tense, terrifically funny action dazzler with a wow level in special effects that will be hard to top.

Basically a wind-up action toy, cleverly made, and delivered with high energy. It delivers just what it advertises, with a vengeance.

It makes for dynamic action that feels unstaged. And the fact that it obviously must have been staged makes it an even greater accomplishment.
