DIE HARD WITH A VENGEANCE still has the action, but one thing for sure is the third movie was not nearly as good as the first instalment (click here). I liked Jeremy Irons performance as a terrorist but his character was not evil enough and walks in the shadow of Alan Rickman's Hans Gruber. I also praise Samuel L. Jackson and I think he portrays a good sidekick to the main hero that was played by Bruce Willis.

With a feature that has a three-star cast like Willis, Jackson and Irons made DIE HARD WITH A VENGEANCE a fantastic film worthy of its recognition as one of the great action films of the 90's.

Star rating: (4/5) Good Movie


  1. I mostly agree, definitely not even close to the original. At least it was so much better than the horrible Die Hard 2. The first Die Hard is one of my favorite action movies.


  2. This film is one my favourites always will want to watch this again. keep blogging
