The second was cheese. The plot was stupid, the acting was subpar, the villains were boring, and special effects were less than believable.
The third had a great villain, a non-stop plot, great acting (you have to love Sam Jackson's character), and all sorts of great stunts. It's also pretty damn funny.
This man knows whats up. Words cannot describe my love for the first and third Die Hards. I don't even acknowledge Die Hard 2 as part of the series anymore. It sucked that much compared to the others. Also, I have a feeling Live Free will fall along the same lines of suckitude.
50 some year-old Bruce Willis + The Apple vs PC kid + a PG-13 rating - John McTiernan directing = a recipe for another craptacular sequel.
JT - I like your review of Smokin' Aces. So much potential, so little bang for the buck. Smokin' Aces that is, not your review.
