well obviously the first is the best.

i'd put the third ahead of the second, but they're both pretty entertaining.

the fourth was shit and unforgivably gave screentime to kevin smith.

Definitely the third. I like the fact that it takes place in and around New York City (they even went to Yankee Stadium! :techman: ). And Jeremy Irons made a better villain than Alan Rickman did, IMHO.

Also, it really creeped me out that Sam Phillips was so badass yet she spoke not a single word throughout the whole thing. I'm sure that was intentional.

Just the first one. It's the only one I've bothered to watch again.

The first one.

The third was okay.

But couldn't this have waited 'til the new one comes out in a few days?

I'm going to have to go with the first film.

Sure the second and third are enjoyable films, but the first is the best of the bunch Die Hard 4.0 is the weakest (thus far)

They should've left it as a trilogy.

i don't understand why so many folks disliked Die Hard 4. I considered it a damn good movie. Die Hard 4 was an updated story. Bruce Willis's character fighting a modern cyber terrorist instead of the more traditional European leftist or American right wing terrorists that we saw in the earlier movies.

I know most people prefer the first one, but #2 has always been my favourite (followed by 1 and 4).

If I have to choose one - it's probably the first. But I liked the rest almost just as much. They are fun action movies, mostly because of Bruce Willis.

I voted for 1, 3, and 4. In that order.

I skipped the second one, even though I own them all, because I felt if I voted for all four that's the same as not voting for any of them.

I also don't get the hate for the 4th one. If you watch the unrated version, it fixes a lot of the problems. I think overall, it would have been better had Wiseman gone for gold and a hard-R rating. Around the movie's release (and when I found out it was PG13) he was quoted as saying he didn't direct it with a rating in mind, but assumed it would be R. I think he's full of shit and was told to tone it down, and tried a bit of CYA. Even the unrated version is tame compared to the others.

If they make a Die Hard 6, it needs to be called "Old Habits Die Hard", and I'm guaranteed in the theater!

It's not what the fourth movie was about, but how they went about telling it.
