What are your thoughts on the Die Hard movies?

I've only seen the first two, I thought the original was a classic and it had everything from great suspense, memorable villians and lots of verbal humor and one liners, Hans Gruber is one of the best character villians you can find in movie history.

As for Die Hard 2 I thought it was a good follow up to the original and the one thing what I did like about Die Hard 2 was Bruce Willis's performance as John McClane and that William Atherton has gotten a good sized role as the sleazy and obnoxious reporter, I thought William Atherton's character made the movie alot better than what could've been.

I give the first Die Hard movie a 10/10 and Die Hard 2 a 7/10

Over repeated watchings there are things in DH, DHWAV and GDTDH that bug me and affect my enjoyment. So I'm going with DH2.

In the original, the Paul Gleason and Hart Bochner characters and the two FBI Johnsons are just so cartoonishly bad they take away from the movie. In DH2, only Dennis Franz was truly awful.

In DHWAV and GDTDH, well, the entire premises were preposterous for both, although SLJ and Justin Long made those worth watching. Granted, DH2 was preposterous as well, but somehow less contrived as the action was limited to just the airport and a shorter period of time.

DIE HARD is arguably the greatest action movie ever made. Flawless from beginning to end.

DIE HARD 3 was a fun and worthy sequel, and Sam Jackson was a fine addition to the story.

DIE HARD 4 is worth a viewing but not one I'd re-watch. It's so-so at best.

DIE HARD 2 I've never been able to watch the whole way through.

DIE HARD 5 I have not seen.

The first two were the best. I just saw the 5th and it was terrible.

Die Hard 1 (10/10), Die Hard 3 (8.5/10), Die Hard 2 (5/10). The rest are garbage money grabs.
