About the Movie
Facing Christmas 3,000 miles from his estranged wife and two children, New York policeman John McClane (Bruce Willis) flies to Los Angeles bearing presents and hoping to patch up his marriage. Stylish and cool Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman) is in Los Angeles as well for the holiday season, but he's not there to give out presents. He's there to take: more than $600 million in negotiable bearer bonds from the multinational Nakatomi Corporation, where McClane's wife Holly (Bonnie Bedelia) is an executive. When the takeover becomes hostile, it's up to John McClane to take on the terrorists with all the grit and determination he can muster--but not without a sense of humor.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The scenes move with such relentless energy and smashing special-effects extravagance that Die Hard turns out to be everything action-genre fans, and Bruce Willis's relieved investors, might have hoped for.
Fresh: Die Hard is as high tech, rock hard and souped up as an action film can be.
Fresh: McTiernan, who directed last summer's Predator, composes the action cleanly and logically, making good use of Jackson DeGovia's elaborate post-modernist set-the building becomes something of a character in itself.
Fresh: Die Hard is film's equivalent of a terrorist attack on your senses, but Willis' intensity and presence push it into guilty pleasure territory.
Easily one of the best action movies of all time!!!
Bruce willis is the best of the best. Here's where it all started, the antihero character, the one-liners, and who could forget yipee-kia-yay mother******!!!. This movie is pure gold. Redefined the action genre. Bruce Willis' character is superb. The special effects and brutal action are more than satisfying.
A true classic! Bruce Willis at his best. Yippie Ki-Yay MoFo...
One of the greatest action movies of all time. For any fan of violent movies here's a classic. A must have in an action lover's collection.
