    ReelViews James Berardinelli

    Not only is it a thrill-a-minute ride, but it has one of the best film villains in recent memory, a hero everyone can relate to, dialogue that crackles with wit, and a lot of very impressive pyrotechnics.

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    On a technical level, there's a lot to be said for Die Hard. It's when we get to some of the unnecessary adornments of the script that the movie shoots itself in the foot.

    The New York Times

    Has to be the most excessive film around. It piles every known element of the action genre onto the flimsy story. [15 July 1988]

    Chicago Tribune Dave Kehr

    Has everything but a personality. [15 July 1988, Friday, p.A]

    USA Today Mike Clark

    The result is a foot-stomping rouser. Where else can you get a cop in his underwear boogalooing with skyscraper terrorists? [15 July 1988, Life, p.4D]
