Does anyone remember how bad-ass Die Hard 2 was? That’s all I wanted to say.
I mean, these terrorists really meant business. They are a group of cruel bastards that would make Hans Gruber sit up and take notice. And John McClane retaliates in kind. In the first movie he also takes care of all the bad guys (and he REALLY hates bad guys), and the action was by no means disappointing, but the way everyone meets their end feels a lot more brutal this time around. It’s in the name, it dies harder. And it’s at times kind of shocking and really good. It’s one of those movies where I didn’t care at all about plot, it’s all about the action. So check out Die Hard 2 the next time you get a chance.
