DIE HARD 2 (Theatrical Release USA 1990)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

Die Hard 2—great movie, straightforward action film, gets the entertainment job done—establishes the style and expectations for the Bruce Willis action movie style. It becomes the iconic definition of the John McClane character, as deeply delineated as Rambo and Rocky define expectations for actor Sylvester Stallone. Classic action entertainment.
