Editorial Reviews

Christmas is not a good time of year in the McClane family. Especially for John McClane, who always happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. But if it weren't for the heroics of this rugged, resourceful cop, many lives would be lost and megalomaniacal terrorists with various European accents would be having their evil way. In 1988, director John McTiernan and the phenomenal hit Die Hard introduced the world to maverick Sgt. John McClane (Bruce Willis) of the New York Police Department, and in the course of this film and two blockbuster sequels McClane was frantically saving lives, buildings, airports, schools, cities, and even his marriage from the threat of international terrorists, psychopaths, and cagey mercenaries. Now you can watch antihero McClane blast his way through all three movies. Witness his transition from a happy-go-lucky, slightly cranky cop to extremely burnt-out, partially alcoholic cop with a propensity to attract extreme violence and catastrophe. Yet the one thing that always overshadows his character flaws is his uncanny ability to spoil the schemes of stylish villains with slick names such as Hans Gruber (the nasty terrorist from the first film, played to perfection by Alan Rickman). Sit down, pop some corn, grab a bottle of Coca-Cola, and get ready to watch (in any order you please) the Die Hard Trilogy--a must for any action buff or fan of Bruce Willis, who owes his film career to the enduring appeal of these global box-office hits. --Jeremy Storey

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this now, just kidding, BUY THIS YESTERDAY! May 15, 2001
Format:DVD
Want the full specs on the Die Hard: Five Star Collection disc? Sure ya do. Here's the goods: audio commentary with director John McTiernan and production designer Jackson DeGovia; audio commentary with special effects supervisor Richard Edlund; "Subtitle Commentary" with cast and crew; original making-of featurette; deleted scenes; gag reel; original newscast footage seen in the film; "Editing Suite and Sound Mixing Studio" interactive feature; three interactive magazine articles; still gallery; DVD-ROM including game demos and full screenplay with scene access; 3 trailers; 7 TV spots. Whew.
How about the other two, for good measure? Die Hard 2: Die Harder has audio commentary with director Renny Harlin; HBO First Look special "The Making Of Die Hard 2"; original making-of featurette; deleted scenes; three visual effects sequence breakdowns and side-by-side comparisons; two mini featurettes on the film's stunts; trailers and TV spots, while Die Hard With a Vengeance will have audio commentary with director John McTiernan; CBS Television special "A Night To Die For; HBO First Look special "The Making of Die Hard With A Vengeance"; original making-of featurette; alternate ending; three special effects and stunt breakdowns; storyboard sequence; trailers and TV spots. All these are 2-discers, by the way. Wow.

Let me start by assuring you that, no, I am not employed by Fox or the production or development teams behind the Die Hard franchise, nor am I one of the actors / actresses involved. I'm just a regular movie buff like most everybody else who surfs the movie pages on Amazon. Now that that is out of the way . . .

After seeing all (and I mean ALL) the other reviews trashing this product, I feel it is necessary to bring attention the positive side to this product (and yes, there is one). The fact of the matter is that, for those movie enthusiasts who don't yet own the Die Hard films in their libraries and/or who have little or no interest in the usually excessive "extras," this package is an excellent value.

For $28.00 you get three great actions movies with some extras (the ones that are probably actually worth watching anyways), a preview of the upcoming fourth Die Hard, as well as a voucher to see it for free when it comes to theaters. It is beyond me how anybody could call this a bad deal.

Comparatively, the previous boxed-set everybody else keeps mentioning is around $10.00 more in price, doesn't include the free movie ticket (a $10.00 or more value in some areas these days), and has fatter cases that will hog more of your precious shelf-space. Sure, they have the infamous "second" discs flaunted by movie studios, but unless you are seriously obsessed with the movies, these second discs usually amount to junk anyways - usually thrown together to give the studio an excuse to inflate the price and bulk up their own profits.

In the end, for the vast majority of movie-watchers, this new edition of the Die Hard collection amounts to a more than ample package and experience, and at a price to "die" for.

5.0 out of 5 stars What is people's problem? June 29, 2007
Format:DVD
The Die Hard films are the greatest action series ever made. This is a small collection of the trilogy. It does not have all the extras of the six disc ultimate box set that was released a couple years ago, but you get what you are paying for here. For $30 you get the three films. You can look at it as only getting half of the old box set, but you are getting it for half the price as well.

This is a Die Hard set for people like me who don't care about a million extra features and just want to enjoy the movies at an affordable price. Don't get me wrong, it isn't like I dislike extras, but to be honest I only watch them once or twice, so to me it isn't worth the extra cash.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate DVD Boxed Set July 30, 2005
Format:DVD
Three movies in three two dvd editions armed with loads of special features and state of the art remastering? Boy, this is the way the "Die Hard" movies should be. Undoubtedly the best movies Bruce Willis ever made, these films deservee to be in any dvd collection. Here is the sypnosis for each film.

"Die Hard" (1988, R) New York City Police Officer John McClane (Bruce Willis) has travelled out to sunny Los Angeles to spend Christmas with his estranged wife Holly (Bonny Dedelia) and his kids. Whike going to pick her up from her Nokatomi Plaza, the 40 story skyscraper where she works, terrorists led by the sadistic Hans Gruber (played brilliantly by Alan Rickman) take over the building and hold everyone in their hostage - including Holly. Now, it is up to McClane to save the lives of everyone in there and have a merry Christmas with his family. Stunning action sequences and special effects as well as great acting create one of the greatest cop dramas ever made. 5/5

"Die Hard 2: Die Harder" (1990, R) The sequel to the 1988 megahit has Bruce Willis returning as John McClane. In this one, McClane is stranded in a Washington, D.D. airport, awaiting the arival of his wife Holly (a returning Bonny Bedelia). However, a group of terrorists is planning to take over the airport. McClane gets wind of the plan and tries the warn the hard headed airport police chief (Dennis Franz) and the stubborn commander of the U.S. Army anti-terrorist squad. The terrorists seize control of the airport, and no travelling planes can land, meaning the planes overhead are running desparately low on fuel - including Holly's. It is up to McClane to save the day once more in this action packed sequel that's as is good as the first.
