DIE HARD (Theatrical Release USA 1988)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì 

Die Hard—not perfect, maybe not even great at times—but becomes a classic action movie from the beginning to ending scenes. The movie precisely times action scenes with human elements of family challenges so that audience involvement is demanded throughout. The Director John McTiernan has an outstanding script to work with, but he also manages to draw the impact out of each scene so that audience involvement is demanded. The movie earns its watch and the investment of time and money.
