Die Hard 2 Reviews

April 3, 2015
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.

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

The filmmakers seem to be operating under the assumption that the way you top a successful movie is by making one that's louder, cruder and more violent.

As vapid as it is violent.

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.

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

Too loud, too many explosions, too little intelligence.

There's not much of a plot.

Lame-brain sequel filled with some of the most ridiculous deaths in movie history.
October 4, 2002
Try harder; a worthless sequel.

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

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.

A second-rate one-upping.
