Metacritic Score

  • 70

    Variety

    As high tech, rock hard and souped up as an action film can be.

  • 70

    The New York Times

    Has to be the most excessive film around. It piles every known element of the action genre onto the flimsy story. [15 July 1988]

  • 50

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    On a technical level, there's a lot to be said for Die Hard. It's when we get to some of the unnecessary adornments of the script that the movie shoots itself in the foot.
