    Jeremy Irons is good, but he ain't no Rickman.

    My order of preference is 1+3, 4, 2.

    I love how much is squashed into 3, but I love the build up and setting of 1 and I'm a sucker for Christmas films. 2 is my least fave and I'm not even sure why, it just bounces backwards and forwards between two locations. 4 was adequate.

    The intro to 3 - sucks me in every time.

    The original. That movie single handedly changed the way all other action movies were made. There had never been anything like it. John McClane FTW. :cool:

    The first one is without doubt the best. Each successive one was less believable as far as story line is concerned but I enjoyed all but the last one.

    I think the first Die Hard movie is the best.

    Undoubtedly the first. The second happens to be my least favourite because it seemed to be on TV so much more than the others.

    Oh and yes, Alan Rickman is brilliant.

    Sounds about right to me.

    The first one. The rest, especially number 4.0, are rather dire.

    OMG, as a HUGE Bruce Willis fan, #1 is my favorite, simply because that was the moment when my crush was solidified, and NEVER went away! Up until then, I watched "Moonlighting" religiously, because I thought he was cute and funny. Die Hard just clinched the deal!

    So, #1, #4 (cause I'm a geek, duh), #3 was good, and #2 was decent until I saw #3 :)

    (I have way too many Bruce movies in my collection...)
