Facing Christmas 3,000 miles from his estranged wife and two children, New York policeman John McClane (Bruce Willis) flies to Los Angeles bearing presents and hoping to patch up his marriage. Stylish and cool Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman) is in Los Angeles as well for the holiday season, but he's not there to give out presents. He's there to take: more than $600 million in negotiable bearer bonds from the multinational Nakatomi Corporation, where McClane's wife Holly (Bonnie Bedelia) is an executive. When the takeover becomes hostile, it's up to John McClane to take on the terrorists with all the grit and determination he can muster--but not without a sense of humor.
40 Stories. Twelve Terrorists. One Cop.. NYPD cop, John McClane's plan to reconcile with his estranged wife is thrown for a serious loop when minutes after he arrives at her office, the entire building is overtaken by a group of terrorists. With little help from the LAPD, wisecracking McClane sets out to single-handedly rescue the hostages and bring the bad guys down.. Die Hard Wiki
One of the best Christmas movies ever with legendary action throughout
Terrible film transfer. Says 4K, but looks like an up-res. Very dark and blurred images at times. A 5 Star movie with a 1 star transfer.
Best action movie ever, on par with first blood.
Why in the world would you crop this to 16:9? It looks terrible. Give us the original aspect ratio for one of the best action movies ever.
Best the best
Bruce Willis is a awesome actor. Also, would I tunes and Apple, add "Moonlighting"? It was on ABC, from 1984 to 1989. Awesome comedy television show. Cybill Shepard was equally Awesome too. Please add this to the t.v. Downloads. Thank you very much.
5 stars for the best Christmas movie, but minus 2 stars for having a ridiculous price. Amazon has DieHard for $4.99. Save your money and buy DieHard 2... because you know you are anyway.
Die hard is a Christmas Movie more than The Nightmare Before Christmas.
I think the fact that Bruce Willis was like their second or third choice is actually precisely what made this movie so unique. This redefined the action move genre, and is ridiculously rewatchable.
Finally got the chance to watch one of the most popular and most referenced classic movie. It got me hooked until the end, the story was well written and the actors were all great. Seeing the young version of Snape is also fascinating (however that voice belongs to Snape forever, no matter which role Alan Rickman portrays). Overall, it’s a guaranteed 5 star movie.
Is this movie 4K? I couldn’t tell. Using an Apple TV 4K and 4K projector. Just looks like HD to me. My blu-ray looks light-years better. A shame because this was shot on film and resolution should warrant big image quality boost if mastered from 4K. Likely this is up-converted. That being said, this is one if my favourite movies. Wonderfully tense and great action with hugely enjoyable performance from Bruce Willis. Great villain. Lower score is due to picture quality.
The movie, no question, is one of the best action movies. But the print they used to transfer is not upto the standards. I own the blurays, dvds and the digital copies of the series. Honestly, dvds looks the best for some reason. This goes for the first 2 movies in the series. Need better transfers!!!
In Die Hard withness the touching story of New York cop John McLaine's epic adventure to get home safely to his family at Christmas; if only the gang of international thieves, bumbling police chiefs, inept FBI agents, drug addled business men, and a scupulous investigative reporter werent standing in his way. Cannot recommend this movie enough, no Christmas is complete without it.
Wicked movie action packed well done definitely worth buying my favourite movie
You have an unbeatable story line. Great acting. Greatest action scenes. You can't go wrong with Die Hard!
Love this movie! It has to be one of my favourite Xmas movies of all time!
Sorry to say that the Die hard movies are NOT Christmas movies. Please move them to the correct section. Other than that…..they are decent movies with a lot of action and some humor.
Die hard is the all time best movie of all time ever in history ever!!!!
This is my favorite Bruce Willis movie ever!
This movie entertained with the amazing action sequences. There were thrilling moments, stunts, shootouts, fist fights and car stunts as well. An action classic. Worth 82%.
One of the best action movies of all time. Also, yippy ki yay!
Best Xmas Movie Ever. I even had to say it twice.
I can't give a great movie one star for the price, but it is absolutely absurd. $18 for the original Die Hard!? Do you think we're stupid? You could pick this up in HD for a lot less in stores
I have been watching the Die Hard movies since i was little and loved all the Die Hard movies with it's hecktic story lines, funny bits and funny quotes, i enjoy the last Die Hard movie better then the old Die Hard movies but think that the old Die Hard movies are still great and i still watch them. :D
There is a reason after more than 2 years, the price is still $14, its a great movie. I've seen this more times than i can count and it's stil good. Plus its officialy a Christmas movie so if you have to watch a Christmas movie at Christmas time, make it this one every year.
A great film but too much bad language
im so getting this ayy but its so cheap NOT!!!
This is the best action movie ever but the price is a rip off
Classic action flick from the 80's! Watchable again and again, and now that the price is right no excuse!
Ace especialy ending!
The best action film ever made.....on my 'phone...... :)
Terririst fools trying to ruin Christmas for everyone at downtown Nakatomi. Time for John Maclane to step in. If you haven't seen this movie stop what you're doing and go watch it immediately. Then watch the 3 sequels. Awesome!!
Without a doubt, one of the greatest action movies ever made bar none. Fantastic script, brilliant pacing and action, a truly heinous villain (the best kind, LOL) and a star-making performance by Bruce Willis as our 'everyman' hero John McClane. Today's film-makers need to check out movies such as this, Aliens, Raiders Of The Lost Ark and Terminator 2 to see how it truly should be done. Thanks Apple, for making this and Aliens available for sale in the same week (now how about the Star Wars and Lord Of The Rings sagas!).
Definitely up there as one of the best movies ever made... perfectly paced with a solid plot, good action and some great acting.
Before the days of wall to wall CGI, hyperactive cuts, toned down violence so everything can be kiddie friendly, and direction and acting so bad only Michael Bay could like it, we had Die Hard. This has a great cast, particularly Alan Rickman hamming it up wonderfully as the arch villain, and a young charismatic Bruce Willis in the hero role. Everything comes together to perfection here, wih a well paced script, great set-up, excellent score, and very well judged characterisation and direction. In short, this is how you make an action movie, but fantastic though it is, it also serves to show just how utterly abysmal modern Hollywood action efforts are.
Haven't even purchased this YET. Without a doubt the best action film ever made a Must Have !!
Die Hard is an INCREDIBLE action-packed thriller with FANTASTIC action, HILARIOUS comedy, EXTREMELY exciting scenes and INCREDIBLY AMAZING performances from Bruce Willis and Alan Rickman, who, even doe he's he gone, is one of the greatest actors EVER.
