[MOVIE | 5 out of 5]
Run time: 123:20 mins. | Production: 1990
DIE HARD 2: DIE HARDER is the only watchable DIE HARD sequel. I did not care for the terrible "Simon Says" sequel or the watered-down PG-13 crap that wouldn't even let the hero say his famous catchphrase (thank you MPAA!).
But DIE HARD 2 manages to stand tall right next to the original, I could not pick a favorite out of the two, it is that good.
DIE HARD 2 is a bit darker than the original, the humor was toned down and it has the highest body count of the series, all those changes make it more appealing in my opinion.
Thankfully the BBFC waved the previous cuts and upgraded the rating to an 18, so adult viewers don't get punished any longer for the greedy studio wanting to sell the movie to minors (15+).
The only complaint I have with DIE HARD 2 is, that when compared to the original it's obvious that the villains in DIE HARD 2 are poor(er) compared to the excellently played Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman). This was probably unavoidable, I mean how are you going to top that performance?
DIE HARD 2 is a must-own for any serious action movie fan. Skip the atrocious sequels after that though (yes, ALL of them).
