       Die Hard should not have been a good movie.  It is completely over the top in terms of plausibility, no one could have survived what Bruce Willis' character, Officer John McClane went through, ant the little romance that was in it was around so briefly, it was almost forgettable.  Officer John McClane clearly wore the white hat and the terrorists were the really, really bad guys in black hats,  all this before 9/11.  All this aside, Die Hard is one of the best of the Action-Adventure thrillers ever.  It keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering what's going to happen next and yet what other disaster can possibly befall our hero?  Bruce Willis definitely pulled this one off.

       DieHard is the first of a series of films depicting the adventures of New York City Detective John McClane.  Bruce Willis is Dectective John McClane and turns in a signature performance in this movie as well as the sequels.  Forget the fact that McClane while thwarting terrorists who have invaded a Christmas Eve Party, undergoes impossible barriers to preserving life and limb, only  to overcome all the mayhem the terrorists throw at him.  Bruce Willis delivers a line as only he can.  Detective McClane came to Los Angeles for Christmas to try to reunite with his estranged wife, played with a straight face by Bonnie Bedelia.  It must have been difficult to remain pokerfaced amidst the inconceivable chaos that surrounded her husband.  One of the nastiest scenes involves McClane walking barefott over acres of broken glass having lost his shoes.  Your feet hurt even thinking about it.  Of course, our hero survives and the terrorists do not.  The movie is based on the novel Nothing Lasts Forever by Roderick Thorpe.
