I think we ought to clarify our terms here. Is this about a "die-hard" who is in possession of a vengeance? Or is the title an admonition that the reader -- you and me -- die in a manner that can be described as "hard, with a vengeance"? Or maybe what we actually have here is the unlikely pairing of a hard die and a vengeance? Shockingly, the movie fails to answer these questions.

Finally we find out that Die Hard doesn’t need Christmas or Carl Winslow. Willis and Jackson have that Lemmon/Matthau chemistry and it is magic - McClaaaaaaaaaaane! I sometimes have a recurring nightmare where I’m presented two water jugs.

Better than the second? Worse than the second? I'd say they're about the same. Die Hard 3 manages to differentiate it from the first and stand out on it's own as an enjoyable action movie. I think one of it's major accomplishments is Samuel L. Jackson as McClane's sidekick, he's not a super-cop like McClane is, but he doesn't drag down the movie at all. In fact I felt he really added to it. No small feat as so many action sequels introduce a sidekick that just sucks. Good action flick.

An entertaining action flick that works well when you get past the usual action movie trappings. The dynamic between Willis and Jackson, and occasionally Jeremy Irons, is the best part of the film, and its a good thing the movie does a good job of focusing on it.

(rewatch) Among the greatest sequels ever made. This movie wastes no time and immediately jumps head first into the action. They take the concept from the original and expanded it from being in just a building to an entire city and it works beautifully. There's some hilarious references to Trump and Hillary in this as well. And the friendship that develops between Jackson/Willis is great and you have to love Willis telling Jackson to stfu with his race baiting bullshit. Great film

Another Gruber? WTF? and his real motive wasn't revenge, but money? But it was also revenge, even though he thought his brother was an asshole? Irons plays an adequate villain, capable as his movie brother, and the fact that it was filmed in NYC made it a little extra special being from the area.

Making no concessions whatsoever to realism (or reality), and possessing at least a modicum of a sense of humour, this movie begins promisingly enough for its type, before, unsurprisingly, wearing thin and losing steam. By the final third, I was barely paying attention.

Doesn't really have the charm, action, or badguys to keep up with the other Die Hards. Still worth a watch just for Samuel L Jackson being his usual vulgar-ass self.

A really fun action flick. Bruce Willis and Sam Jackson have good chemistry, and it might be the funniest Die Hard. The action is more sprawling. Taking it to the streets of NYC was a good idea.

So he gets onto an elevator with one, two, three, four guys and there is no escape. And as he slowly realizes that he is in trouble, you think, "He can't get out of this. They've written themselves into a corner." Then, without hesitation, he gets himself out of it. It's almost "Taken"-esque, in that when he finds the guy who took his daughter you think, "Okay, now you can come back when you're not outnumbered and surrounded and get this guy," but instead he just kills everybody on the spot.

In Die Hard 3 John McClane (Bruce Willis) teams up with a black guy (Samuel L. Jackson) who almost saved his life, to get rid of a terrorist causing havoc in NYC. Willis offers the usual action humor while Jackson is often the more interesting character of the two. There's some lovely action here and I found the film in general quite enjoyable, but it lacks the depth and engagement of Die Hard 1 where the confined space of the high rise building kept the viewer locked in together with McClane.

FBI guy: "So, McClane - can you think of any Germans that might have a grudge against you for any reason?" McClane: "Hmm.......Nope, can't think of any". FBI guy: "Hey, what about that guy you threw off a building a couple years back? Wasn't he German?" McClane: "Oh yeah. I forgot all about that". This scene sums up Die Hard: With A Vengeance in a nutshell.

Darker than ever, thanks to some super high stakes (see the school bomb) and what feels like the biggest and bloodiest bad guy body count yet. The former offers some great moments of drama (see the "fire drill" at the school) but the latter makes it a little harder to swallow the triumphant "let him burn" and "yippie-kai-yay" at the end. For the most part though, Willis' dry wit ("attention! Nils is dead!") and action heroics continue to entertain, and Jackson proves to be an enjoyable sidekick.

Entertaining movie. Samuel L Jackson adds a lot to the entertainment value of the movie. Convoluted plot, too many superhero moments, but I guess I should have gotten used to it by now since it's the third movie in the franchise. The references to Trump and Hillary Clinton sure aged poorly, those moments were two big yikes. Much better than II, lacks the novelty factor of I.

Die Hard with a Vengeance is a pretty good film, one that ends up being a good sequel to the spectacular Die Hard. It has wit, charm, charismatic characters and fun action scenes. It also has another great villain from Jeremy Irons. The plot is where it starts to get weak, thanks to typical action movie clichés, but it's still a fun ride that you'll probably enjoy if you liked the first Die Hard.

You really have to suspend any sense of reality & logic to enjoy this film, but once you do that, its as much fun as you can reasonably hope to have at the movies. Jeremy Irons & his villianous crew, for all intent and purposes makes this film worth watching.

I enjoyed it. Not as tight and complete as the first one, but it worked a lot better than the 2nd. It was a bit ridiculous and over the top but it was a fun ride. The villain was good, and partnering up McClane with Sam Jackson was a good move.

The best Die Hard, I think. Jeremy Irons is just a badass, as is Bruce Willis. It's much more intelligent than the previous two, and it's great to throw on after not having seen it in a while, and try and beat them through the puzzles.

Die Hard: With a Vengeance is my Die Hard movie. I had never seen any of the movies in this series until I watched this movie. I love it through-and-through. I've since watched all of the original trilogy and while the first one is good this one is better. Irons as the bad guy is cool and severe. Jackson plays a regular guy that should not be underestimated. The trademark Jackson yell is present throughout this movie. I can watch this movie again and again and I have. It's a perfect action movie

Easily the best Die Hard sequel, most of the best stuff in this film is in the first hour where Willis and Jackson engage in hilarious racial tensions and race around New York solving Jigsaw-esque puzzles by Irons, who is doing this simply as a diversion while he robs a bank of its fucking gold bars. Pretty ridiculous shit, like the other Die Hard sequels, but it still features really fun acting and writing, along with some rather ballsy scenes (especially the one in Harlem).

Much better than the previous Die Hard installment. What Die Hard 2 lacked in excitement and fun, Vengeance brought back in Full Throttle. Though I love Irons, he was no Hans Greuber and unfortunately and the tenseness from the original is gone as well. Yet it is still a lot of fun and Willis and Jackson are badass. Pretty great mindless action flick.

"Think fast. Look alive. Die hard." In a public place in New York, an explosion takes place, claimed by a man who calls himself Simon and only wants to talk to John McClane. McClane is a heavily alcoholic cop who no longer has his badge, but only when he carries out Simon's orders will the explosions stop.

Simon says... read this review. Well, honestly I don't care what Simon has to say. This movie was quite a bit of fun. I liked Jeremy Irons as the riddle/bomb making bad guy. Bruce Willis returns to being a lot more funny in this one after his very serious role in Die Hard 2. Samuel L. Jackson also added a lot, mostly in a good way. I must say I didn't like the race war going on between Jackson and Willis. I'm not sure if they were trying to be funny...

McTiernan returns for the 3rd installment, and his deft use of space and skillful tracking of movement across New York City's streets and underground subways is truly noteworthy, elevating it above its rather humdrum script which wastes the talent of Iron's in an underwritten role and establishes a throwaway link to Hans Gruber. Willis and Jackson have excellent chemistry, and their verbal barbs are amusing, while McTiernan expertly ratches up the tension until the seemingly rushed finale.

I love the characters. I love the premise. I love the action. I love the dialogue. I love the villain. I love the actors. I love the humor. I hate the ending. One of my major movie pet peeves is when the ending feels like it belongs in a different film, as though the writer couldn't think of a climax that tied into the rest of the story, so he/she just plucked the last 15 pages from another script with a better finale. After Bruce and Sam board the boat it becomes a different, less awesome film.

Die Hard With a Vengeance is regarded by many as the second best Die Hard film. I think the return of Director John McTeirnan recaptures certain elements that made the original so successful. Bruce Willis this time has a sidekick in the form of Samuel L Jackson and faces off against Jeremy Irons. The chemistry between the trio works well and adds comic relief. The violence and bad language isn't affected by the lower age rating and bar a weak ending, this is the best of the Die Hard sequels.

Another great action sequel for the Die Hard series. It provides plenty of everything you'd expect from a Die Hard movie, although it takes some fresh turns for the series provided by the subtle change to more car-based action and the role of Jackson as Zeus.
