Why do many Die Hard movie fans prefer Die Hard 3 over Die Hard 2?

I love the first one. I like the third one quite a lot. I've never been able to sit through an entire viewing of the second. Too silly.

I can't watch Die Hard 3. Its just beyond silly. Die Hard is classic, the second and 4th are just fun. As far as I'm concerned, there was no 3.

Who likes Die Hard 3!!! It was horrible! I don't acknowledge it's existence.

As far as I'm concerned the Die Hard trilogy consists of Die Hard, Die Hard 2 and Live Free or Die Hard.

Is Die Hard 3 the one with Samuel Jackson? I think the idea behind the heist was great but the acting was just okay. The only line I like is the one where he says "Thanks Jesus." and he says "My name ain't Jesus. He said Hey Zeus" and something along those lines. After that the movie just drags

It is indeed with Samuel Jackson.

Die Hard 3 is the only one I don't like. Never even finished watching it. I like Die Hard 2.

I may be one of the few Die Hard fans that likes With A Vengenance. I liked how it mixed up the formula a bit.

Also, this movie was McClane at his absolute lowest and self destructive best. If he didn't hate himself so much he wouldn't be able to kick so much a**. A man with nothing left to lose can't help but to win.

I absoultly love all the die hard movies,they are great!i've loved them all my life,but I will say in my opinion that Die Hard 2 is the weaker of the 4.It just seems to be long and drawn out for some reason and I think the setting,in an airport adds to it too and the snowy weather,but apart from that its still a great movie.I was old enough to see with a vengance and live free or die hard at the movies,I missed the first 2 unfortunatly due to age restrictions,so I have a thing for die hard with a vengance.

One thing what I didn't like about Die Hard 2 is they pushed that nosy reporters are good for nothing thing way too far and I didn't really see any reason why they've had to bring back William Atherton's character in this movie, it's like they only used him for comedic purposes which IMO kind of ruined the movie.
