Die Hard just delivers. It's what a good action movie should be. Real people fighting plausible (however improbable) bad guys and situations. This was from the days when John McClain ran around barefoot with a machine gun (Ho-Ho-Ho), not surfing on the back of jets or taking down the entire Russian army.
