Die Hard 2: Die Harder is no Die Hard. Not even close. Not even in the same ballpark. It's not even the same premise, and how could it be? You can't have John McClane (Bruce Willis) getting stuck in another Highrise Building and expect him to fend off the bad guys. Also, the tone of Die Hard 2 is much different because instead of being "alone" to fend off the baddies, he is more or less surrounded by other law enforcement agencies at the airport as well as the Army. So, this changes the playing field somewhat, even if they are all idiots or in on it.

As a sequel, it does leave me wanting the original big time. But as a movie on it's own merit, there are plenty of Set Pieces to entertain you for sure. I always did like this movie in spite of some serious flaws within. The ending, the way that McClane uses the escaping 747  Planeas the runways 'Landing Light' was clever and the fact that it's not till this very moment that we get to hear the "Yippee-ki-yay, Motherf*cker!" line does it elevate it a bit higher.

Definitely belongs in any fan of the series personal library, flaws and all. This is a Buy for sure. But if you bought the Five Star Collection Box Set, then you already have the first 3 films anyway. So, there ya go........ FYI, the above DVD cover is the not the cover to the actual Five Star Collection. It doesn't exist anywhere online. So, I went with the Special Edition cover as its replacement.
