If there's one thing that the original Die Hard wasn't, well, it wasn't some generic action movie. Alan Rickman played a fantastic, sneering villain who drove a thrilling plot with tense, finely-done scenes. Unfortunately, Die Hard II is a kind of standard, here-we-go-again film that recycles the first movie's plot only without the same charm. The new villains, a group of ex-military radicals propping up a foreign ex-dictator, are simply not that interesting. Bruce Willis has a hard time having to basically carry the whole movie on his natural charisma. It's worth seeing given that there are some fun, energetic moments, but Die Hard II ultimately manages to be just average when it could've been fantastic.

Die Hard festing here. One is great, primarily because of the cat and mouse interaction between hero and villain. The humor and sarcasm really drove the film. There's nothing like that here with Die Harder. No bond or interactions between characters - they're just afterthoughts to compliment meaningless actions or explosions. For reference, the films in order of release are: Die Hard, Die Harder, Die Hard with a Vengeance, Live Free or Die Hard, A Good Day to Die Hard.
