John McTiernan's direction is spot on, almost faultless and who can forget Robert Davi and Grand L.Bush as FBI agents Johnson and Johnson. There are so many great lines in the film including the now famous Yipee-kyay-mother****er line and Rickman's constant shouting of 'McCLANE'. And the greatness continued through 3 sequals, the fourth of which is nowhere near as bad as people say it is...
The helicopter scene in 4 is one of the greatest action scenes ever. Rare that the entertainment value remained throughout the series
