Die Hard

Die Hard ★★★★

The script is the real winner here, the thing that truly set this apart from all of the action films that came before. But there's also so much else that is incredibly on target, including the performances and the music and the editing. This time out I really noticed Jan de Bont's cinematography— which was superb, expertly capturing the slick surfaces of 80s corporate culture, and the extreme disruption that the mayhem causes. This movie is nearly perfect.

Also, it got a thumbs up from my daughter. We watched it together while we both had COVID.
