      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      It lacks the fresh thrills of its predecessor, but Die Hard 2 still works as an over-the-top -- and reasonably taut -- big-budget sequel, with plenty of set pieces to paper over the plot deficiencies.

      Rami A Die Hard 2 is just as fun and exciting as the first. It's a worthy sequel that provides great entertainment and brings back the original's magic, with a few new twists. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/25/24 Full Review Yuval D full of Unnecessary violence and bad action scenes, die hard 2 is not a good movie And not even close to being good as the first one. Avoid it Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/24/24 Full Review Aaron W Very similar style to the first one but I wouldn't say it's necessarily a bad thing. I still believe it is pretty good even if more forgettable than the first. The stakes are raised and most other things are as well but it doesn't affect much overall Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/13/24 Full Review Tolga Y If you want to watch a really action movie,you can choose this. Tension always high and Noel concept so sweet. Good movie Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/04/24 Full Review I F Just watched it again over Christmas. Watching it again, as an adult, I just cannot believe how bad stupid this movie is. The atmosphere is there... The Christmas mood is there... But every single word said is stupid. Everything that happenes is stupid. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/03/24 Full Review Elizabeth S A great action movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Wendy Ide Times (UK) It’s a solid sequel, bigger in spectacle but not the equal of the first film. Jul 24, 2023 Full Review David Ansen Newsweek The filmmakers know the audience is challenging them to top themselves, and they've risen to the bait. Harlin and company build suspense the old-fashioned way. They earn it. Feb 6, 2018 Full Review Sheila Benson Los Angeles Times This is the most cheerfully preposterous film of a jaw-dropping summer, which is not to say it's not fun, it's simply orchestrated Looney Tunes. Apr 3, 2015 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review In every way that Die Hard was original and something new, Die Hard 2 fails to honor that by resigning to more of the same. Rated: 1.5/4 Jan 6, 2024 Full Review David Hogan hoganreviews.co.uk Plays it very safe with the plot by copying a lot of what made the first work but sadly the villains of the piece are far, far less interesting. It does have some fun scenes and Bruce Willis is still on fine form so still worth a watch though... Rated: 4/5 Dec 26, 2022 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) Die Hard 2 is ubiquitous and sensationally entertaining. [Full review in Spanish] Dec 1, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
