Die Hard with a Vengeance (1995)
Not as good as the first but better then the second.
It was good to see the Die Hard movies get back on track with the third film. It may have had the same director, but it took a chance, successfully, on a batch of new characters. Sure the cops were a bit one dimensional, but they generally have been in all the films.(except Al in the first one).
Adding Mr Jackson was brilliant for no one does attitude like him.(eg. When McClane asks if they should call an ambulance, Zeus' reply "Nah f***'em let them burn.") Bruce is McClane, and despite some better acting in movies like Pulp Fiction, he always will be. He gets dirty, he gets hurt( I can imagine his medical insurance premium), and he doesn't like to lose to the bad guys.
The action is good, although on a larger scale as the scene is moved from a single site in the first couple of movies to much of New York.
The plot is always simple but enjoyable with the constant double crosses(even amongst the baddies) and of course John is the only one smart enough to figure it out.
Overall, a great action film as long as you leave your cynicism at the door.
