One of the best action movies ever, all set in one big building, but plenty of action and thrills

It's Christmas time in Los Angeles when group of terrorists take hostages in an employee party. Their plan to steal the 600 million dollars seems interrupted by John McClane achieving a great escapist action. Meanwhile, John found himself. Great movie with merited four nominated for Oscar.

"Yippee-Ki-Yay, motherf***er"

The idea is a great one for an action movie: A cop is trapped inside a skyscraper with a team of desperate terrorists. He is all that stands between them and their hostages. Give the terrorist leader brains and a personality, make one of the hostages the estranged wife of the cop and you've got a movie.

Starring Bruce Willis, it's about a New York cop who has flown out to Los Angeles for Christmas, and we quickly learn that his marriage was put on hold after his wife (Bonnie Bedelia) left for the Coast to accept a great job offer. She is now a vice president of the multinational Nakatomi Corp., and shortly after Willis makes his surprise entrance at her office party, the terrorists strike.

They, too, are a multinational group, led by a German named Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman) who is ...

The pinnacle of action movies!

Die Hard is the pinnacle of action movies. It constantly tops best lists, is extremely quotable and an average audience member could relate to John McClane in a special way. And I don't blame them.

John McTiernan directed Die Hard, and this is a guy that knows how to direct an action movie and make it memorable. He caught the vibe of adrenaline, and channeled it very smoothly during this movie, always keeping you on the hook and interested.
The script was very well written for a 1980's action movie. It was intellectual and it showed through its grand characters. Some you wanted to hug, some you wanted to strangle.
And then of course, there's Bruce Willis as John McClane.
I don't think Bruce Willis needed to do another movie after the success of Die Hard. He made this small character...

Yippe Ki yay!!!!!!!

Bruce Willis solidified his place in movie history by filming an entire action film barefoot. His performance as John McClane is exciting and launched the career of Willis into superstardom, spawning three sequels. McClane is not muscle bound killing machine but a New York cop who turns up in the Nakatomi Building in Los Angeles to meet his wife who he hopes to spend Christmas with. But the party gets gate crashed by terrorists led by a diabolical thief disguised as a terrorist leader Han Gruber (Alan Rickman) who takes 30 people hostage. Only McClane escapes and he ends up being everyone’s only hope against the terrorists who don't care if they spoil everyone’s Christmas.

This is the guy who started the one-liners that became a cliché for action heroes later on. He's fearless, women l...
