ProAMAZING film!! :-D Even better than the first!

ConsSome things in the film are "exaggerated..."!!

DIE HARD 2 FILM ONLY REVIEW Well this film was on TV last night so I thought I'd write up a review on it while it was fresh in my head!! After Die Hard became a huge hit, it wasn't surprising that a sequel was made in 1990. Die Hard 2: Die Harder was just as entertaining as the first movie. Die...

DIE HARD 2: DIE HARDER FILM ONLY REVIEW This is the second of four Die Hard films. The main character John McClane, of course, played by Bruce Willis. John McClane is a tough, brave, strong and ready for anything sort of guy - as we saw in the first Die Hard!! His story: John McClane was once a...

Die Hard 2: Die Harder follows on a few years after the events of the first film, when John McClane managed to get out of the Nakatomi plaza alive, with his wife in tow. This time round, husband and wife are getting along better (surprising what a near-death experience can do for you), and John...

ConsHow can the same s**t happen to the same guy ??

A year has passed since the siege at Nakatomi Plaza, in which L.A. cop John McClane single handedly stopped Hans Gruber and his gang from stealing in negotiable bearer bonds. lt's Christmas, and John McClane is looking forward to a nice peaceful time with his children and his wife, Holly...

ConsSame story, different location

I love the Die Hard series and if you were to ask me to rate the three, the first would be on the top of my list, followed by the third and Die Hard 2 would be the last. For me Die Hard 2 is the weakest of the three, but that don't mean that it's a bad film at all. It just means that the other...

There was no way, just no way that this was ever going to be as good as Die Hard, it didn't have to be. Thanks to the success of the original, Die Hard 2 had a ready made audience that was virtually guaranteed to turn up for a second installment. All Fox had to do was to get the picture made and...

Waiting to meet his wife at Washington's Dulles airport, Detective John McClane notices something pretty weird going on. Poking his nose into things that he shouldn't McClane...

ProEntertaining, lots of good action

Consnot as "funny" as the first film

I think other Ciao users have been a bit hard on this film in general. Its not a classic, but its compared too much to Die Hard. Die Hard is not any normal film, its probably the best action film ever. So Die Hard 2: Die Harder had alot to live up to, and the plot is fairly similar, its just an...

published 23/05/2013

ProGood action scenes

ConsSome of teh plot stretches the imagination.

It is good sometimes to come across a follow up film that does not just automatically seek to cash in on the success of the first one and in this film you have a sequel which is almost as good as the original. Once again John Mclane New York cop (Bruce Willis), finds himself in the midst of chaos...

This was never going to be as good as Die Hard. That was the original, a breakthrough. Die Hard with a Vengence was the last in the trilogy, and was unique because of this. Die Hard 2 seemed to fill in a gap between the two films, with not really that much to say for itself, too much of the same...

ProSame as for the first film

ConsTreads familiar ground

"Die Hard 2" is the usual Hollywood idea that if something made money the first time, it will do it again, so all the elements that made the original a success are in place, even down to Willis' wife tangling with the same reporter. Unfortunately the producers have changed exactly one element...
