A good day to Die Hard!

The original Die Hard is one of my all time favourite movies. For me it set the future standard for producing exciting and original action movies. Now we are on the 5th Die Hard and it’s been a long a varied journey. The latest I have to say is now my second favourite – yes, I personally thought it was that good. The budget they had for property damage must have been phenomenal, and it is non-stop adrenalin pumping action from start to finish. In fact there is so much action going on that you don’t want to blink in case you miss anything. Bruce is getting on a bit now but he kept up the John McClane persona that’s expected of him throughout the movie. So to gage if you’d like this movie compare your faves in the Die Hard film series to mine:

1.     Die Hard (The original cannot be beaten)
2.     A Good Day to Die Hard
3.     Die Hard with a Vengeance
4.     Live Free or Die Hard (aka Die Hard 4.0)
5.     Die Hard 2: Die Harder (This was bound to be the worst – it was given an unoriginal title with a number!)
