One might think a movie with a reported budget of $62 million would have had a few bucks to spend on a gaffe spotter.

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.

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.

Try harder; a worthless sequel.

A lot of people get shot and many punches are thrown, but there are zero memorable setpieces.

Though the follow-up is bigger, it's not really better. The surprise is missing.

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

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

As vapid as it is violent.

There's not much of a plot.

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

Though it has an inventive and unexpected plot twist, Die Hard 2 lacks credibility. "Die Hard" was that rare modern action picture with a wholly believable plot.

[A] cynical, formulaic sequel.

Die Hard 2 delivers everything you'd expect from the title's promise. Trouble is, Die Hard 2 really didn't need to wallow in graphic violence to be a good, engaging picture.
