Nice RLM review. I totally agree with what they said about what constitutes a good die hard movie. A good watch.

I just picked this up from Best Buy for $13 (they price matched Amazon). It's got to be worth $13, right? :-)

**** it, that's kind of cheap. I guess I'll get it then by doing the same thing.

Everybody is price-matching Target... their ad had this for $13... then Amazon matched... and BB will match too of course. I picked mine up at Target as a "thank you" for them setting the low-price bar on this one.

You can get it for $10 at Target if you sign up for their text coupons which has a $3 off coupon for DH5.

The extended version is different from the theatrical release so it's more of a directors cut..

Sure some of the plot elements are recycled and redundant from the orignal, but its jammed packed entertainment as far as I'm concern. Die Hard 2 is now my favorite of all the sequels (of course the orignal overall is still the best.)
I watched A Good Day To Die Hard on Friday and Die Hard 2 last night. While I enjoyed some of the action scenes, A Good Day To Die Hard wasn't that great of a movie and is the worst of the series. Die Hard 2, on the other hand, was excellent and I like it every bit as much as Die Hard. Both of the first two movies were based on novels: Nothing Lasts Forever and 58 Minutes. Both novels involved a NYPD detective whose name was changed to John McClane for the movies. I like movies based on novels more than movies written just as screenplays. There seems to be more depth to the character development and a better plot.
