Die Hard: Just a big, booming action flick, an unapologetic blockbuster, and very much a product of its time. Bruce Willis is front and center, at the height of his '80s-era popularity, in one of the main roles that would define his varied career. As New York cop John McClane, he's quick-witted and ready for anything -- and he delivers a line that would become his signature. (Sorry, we can't repeat it here. We are a family-friendly news service.) Still, director John McTiernan's film remains funny, tense and gripping, with Willis and an excellent Alan Rickman going toe-to-toe during a hostage crisis in an L.A. skyscraper.
