Thirty years later, it's easy to forget that Bruce Willis wasn't an action star in 1988, he had only a couple credits to his name, this was the one that put him on the top, and for good reason too. In the ensuing years, compounded with several sequels "Die Hard" has risen to the great pantheon of action movies. It's aged well too, it's just as good today as it was in '88, which is a hard thing to do.

Willis and Rickman are the perfect hero-villain matchup in the perfect action movie. Every single plot execution - apart from how the Feds are so brazenly stupid, but that's part of the charm - and every character, even the one-offs ("Hans... Bubi!") works seamlessly. The fact that the dead terrorist's shoes don't fit him speaks volumes to McClane's enduring appeal as the hero that bleeds. Also one of the very few 80's movies that is simultaneously of its time and timeless.

The greatest action (and Christmas) movie of all time. The suspense crackles from one end to another, the fights are brutal, the screenplay hilarious, the blood flies, John McClane cuts his feet and crawls and bleeds all over, Hans Gruber is the 2nd greatest villain in cinema (after Darth Vader), and the whole thing fucking rocks. I watch it every Christmas, and will continue to do so until John McClane drops me out of a skyscraper window.

Arguably the greatest action movie of all time. Inarguably the Greatest villain of all time: Alan Rickman as Hans Gruber. Why? Due to lack of space & in honor of Gruber's "I am going to count to 3, there will not be a 4." here's just 3 reasons: 1. He never does anything stupid 2. He's smart (this is different & far more significant & rare in movie villains than just not doing anything stupid) 3. he follows through on his threats. (Seriously, he wasn't kidding about there not being a 4.)

"Hostage Terrorist, Terrorist Hostage: A Study in Duality." Die Hard cemented John McTiernan as one of the great action directors of the late 80'/early 90's. It's never outright corny, the villain doesn't twirl his mustache, and the hero always seems vulnerable and on the ropes. The holiday theme isn't entirely a joke either, in the end McClane is just trying to reconnect with his family while Gruber is ultimately focused on opening his presents.
