Good to watch action packed Christmas movie annually every Christmas starring Bruce Willis and the late late Alan Rickman. Yes this movie has a ton of flaws but you know what else has many flaws, home alone. That's one movie I was comparing this film too. And while watching they have a lot in common just pretend that Kevin is an adult and has a gun instead of a blow torch and a spider. The action in this movie is off the chain, it's good for this films release and is sadly dated. The story is so generic if this movie came out in 2017 this movie would fail. But how people use this story like when family guy made their own die hard with Peter instead of John McClain. I like how tv shows use this same idea and make it into their own thing. That's what makes this movie iconic and that one line when John says hippekya mother bleep.

One of, if not the best action film of all time.

Very awesome movie. Tons of gun-blazing action and even some hand-to-hand as well. Lots of cursing, but it's OK. A rip-roaring movie never to forget.

Die Hard has had many sequels but none have ever had the sheer amount of thrills this one had. This movie is about a group of employees at a Christmas party who get taken hostage by terrorists and one cop in the building has to save them. It's funny, thrilling, it has great performances, and it has great actors. This movie makes every fight scene look very tense and it has creative kills for the terrorists. It also surprises us with its well-constructed script and its perfect pacing which remains consistent and easy to follow throughout the whole film. The movie is not perfect though because of the marriage conflict with McClane and his wife. It's great for an action movie to have a character development but I found it to be uninteresting. But this is a minor complaint on my part. Overall, this movie is fantastic. It's super entertaining and it has influenced many later action films. Many have tried to top this but none have ever succeeded. This movie is probably one of if not the best action movie of all time and it's a must watch for all fans of the action genre.

A classic action movie. Bruce Willis is the perfect choice for the hero. Alan Rickman is also really good as the now classic Hans Gruber, even though it's been overshadowed by Severus Snape. The action is intense and riveting. I know this will anger many people, but this, in my opinion, this is NOT a Christmas movie, it is an action/dark comedy.

Die Hard helped define the modern action genre. That's good enough for a solid movie, but it's the characters that put it over the top.

It's the blueprint for a perfect action film. Involving characters, consistently great action, spectacular performances, and a brilliant script.

There's nothing else to say. It's perfect.

Die Hard reminds us that when an action film relies heavily on its brain and heart, as well as a healthy dose of gorgeous visuals, it can be a masterpiece just as easily as any other genre.

The best Die Hard movie because it's unrealistically-realistic.

Greatest Christmas movie ever? Yeah, baby! Suck it "It's a wonderful life!" It''s not Christmas until Hans Gruber falls from the Nakatomi tower. Be aware there is ALOT of swearing so keep that in mind if your kids are not cool enough to hear the f word yelled multiple times, but if that is the case then they don't deserve to see this most awesome movie.

Glad to see that they didn't make Alan Rickman a dumb villain. Die Hard has to be one of your best Christmas movie choices.
