If your idea of a good time is watching a lot of stupid, unpleasant people insult and brutalize one another, this is right up your alley.

[A] cynical, formulaic sequel.

Merely a serviceable action flick, sorely missing both a sense of stylistic clarity as well as the glorious excess this kind of modern western-meets-Indiana Jones affair deserves.

No one carries a one-liner better than Willis. He's also unusual among Hollywood's Action Men in seeming vulnerable at the same time as being invincible.

This disappointing followup to Die Hard has more action and bigger action, but considerably less suspense.

Too loud, too many explosions, too little intelligence.
| Original Score: 2/5

Okay, but lacks the momentum of the original

So-so sequel that tries too hard to be the first film.

It will surprise no one who saw the first Die Hard that the heart and soul of the new film is Bruce Willis, who this time is even better.

Lacks much of the rough charm and great villainy of the original, but is still a quite serviceable action flick. Willis keeps the bullets and one-liners coming.
| Original Score: 4/5

There's not much of a plot.

Lame-brain sequel filled with some of the most ridiculous deaths in movie history.
| Original Score: 1/5

It does its job, and clearly has no ambition to do anything else.
| Original Score: 3/5

Unbelievably, the sequel did not suck as badly as its title had initially implied.
| Original Score: 4/5

Try harder; a worthless sequel.
| Original Score: 2/5
Scott Weinberg

Standard sequel works well thanks to Willis and the high-flying heroics.
| Original Score: 3.5/5

The setup is much more improbable as Willis' cop just happens to be at the scene of another mega-showdown.
