This seminal 1988 thriller made Bruce Willis a star and established a new template for action stories: "Terrorists take over a (blank) and a lone hero, unknown to the villains, is trapped with them." In Die Hard, those bad guys, led by the velvet-voiced Alan Rickman, assume control of a Los Angeles high-rise with Willis's visiting New York cop inside. The attraction of the film has as much to do with the sight of a barefoot mortal running around the guts of a modern office tower as it has to do with the plentiful fight sequences and the bond the hero establishes with an LA beat cop. Bonnie Bedelia plays Willis's wife, Hart Bochner is good as a brash hostage who tries negotiating his way to freedom, Alexander Godunov makes for a believable killer with lethal feet and William Atherton is slimy as a busybody reporter. Exceptionally well-directed by John McTiernan. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is the most bullet-ridden, blood stained, fire breathing movie of all time, it has all of the above mixed in with great one liners and superb characters. No questions it is THE best action movie of all time, and to prove it i need say only this...... i put a mark on the back of my long-owned precious die hard vhs case every time i watch it....currently at 143 no joke!...i love this movie with a passion it brings together every element needed for a classic, and this IS a classic

I'm a big fan of the Die Hard films i already have all the films on DVD
when i found out about this all new Doco called Decoding Die Hard i knew i had to get it
but first i found out it was only available with the new 5 Disc blu-ray Legacy collection
and i didn't want to pay tons of money on this boxset just for the Bonus Disc
cause there is another Die Hard film in the works already to be released next year in cinemas
it's suppose to be the final Die Hard for the franchise,
Bruce willis is rumoured to be retiring from the Character after the final film
which i don't blame him, he's getting old that's for sure
so of course 20th century fox will re-release another Die Hard blu-ray boxset for next year's film

so i did some internet searching and found out that the original Die Hard has been released as
a 2 Disc special edition with the Decoding Die hard Doco

so i just bought this 2 Disc edition just to watch the Die Hard Doco and i have no regrets
if i should have bought the 5 Disc legacy collection or not.
this all new Documentary definitely is new, all interviews are recently recorded last year i guess.

Format: DVD
Bruce Willis plays John McClane, a swaggering New York cop who arrives in LA to patch things up with his wife, Holly (Bonnie Bedelia, who would be sorely missed in the second sequel). Unfortunately, Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman) has also come to town. He takes Holly and her work colleagues hostage on the 30th floor in a bid to bide time while his goons break into the vault to steal 600 million dollars in bearer bonds. McClane, meanwhile, is loose amongst the building's lift shafts and air vents, picking off Gruber's men with a pistol and a one-liner.

Let's leave aside the Nakatomi Plaza's phallic presence (complete with climactic rooftop explosion) and concentrate on the people in it. John McClane: he's the sort of action hero who can chain smoke filterless European cigarettes before sprinting up four flights of stairs, having a fist fight and then leaping off a 40-storey building with a fire hose wrapped round his waist. Gruber, paradoxically, and yet strangely likewise, is precisely who we would want to be if we were a ruthless global criminal: suave, literate, deadly; an "exceptional thief".

Events build up and up until we have a proper cat-and-mouse story. The odds are stacked against McClane: he's outnumbered, out-gunned, and out-shoed. But he's also a resilient fellow - a stubborn working man stuck in his ways - and he doesn't care much for foreign types trespassing on the ranch. For all the incredulity of many of our hero's actions, he is an everyman; forget juggernauts versus jet fighters - this incarnation of McClane huffs and puffs and bleeds. It HURTS jumping off a building, and he's modern enough to show it.

Along the way we meet some neatly written side characters, most of whom belong to the bumbling good guys. Deputy Police Chief Dwayne T.

John McClane is a cop from New York who is on his way to Los Angeles to see his family.

Holly, his wife moved to LA because of a job at the Nakatomi Corporation. When he arrives at Nakatomi Plaza, he and Holly go into a private bathroom and get into an argument.

When Holly leaves to give a speech, thirteen armed terrorists lead by Hans Gruber seize control of the building and take the occupants of the 30th floor, who are the only ones left in the building, hostage.

Luckily, they missed John and he has to figure out how to save the hostages before its too late.....

Joel Silver changed the way action movies were to be made with this phenomenal movie. No longer were action heroes going to be a force to be reckoned with, McClane is a human being, vulnerable, and this is the films strongest point.

Willis has never been better in his star making role, and is more than ably supported by the likes of Veljohnson, Bedelia, and Bochner.

But the film is stolen from everyone by one Alan Rickamn. To this day, there never has been a better screen villain, and it's not because of his evil-ness, its the fact that the man is so normal and just so laid back, its as if he's just attending a business meeting.

The action is taut, and despite the fact that the building is huge, it's a very claustrophobic movie, that never lets go of you once we hear the first gunshot.

Hilarious in places, very gut wrenching in others, but always thrilling, Die Hard is not only the greatest action movie of all time.

In my humble opinion, it's the greatest film ever made.
