Die Hard preserves Explosive Christmas Charm-100 Word Review

Scribbles of Stage and Screen

McTiernan’s action-packed flick has endured as a gripping holiday classic.

When terrorists take over Nakatomi plaza with a Christmas party full of hostages, it’s up to NYPD cop John McClane to save the day.

In typical James Bond fashion we despair over the unhelpful meddling of the FBI while routing for the underdog.

Willis is in his element as smack talking action man, and Rickman menaces as nefarious mastermind Hans Gruber.

Full of cocky one-liners and explosive stunts, Die Hard’s gritty charm has cemented itself as a great Christmas fun for the whole family.

Until the next sub-standard sequel, Yippee-ki-yay.

4 stars
