Alternate Versions

After the UK censors informed Fox that the R-rated cut of the film would be carry a 15 rating, the distributors cut out almost all strong language, some scenes of fisticuffs and bloodier violence in order to release the film with a 12A rating for theatrical exhibition only. The cuts were waived when released on DVD and Blu-ray in the UK in 2013 with a '15' rating thus presenting the US R-rated Theatrical Version uncut for home video release. The UK 12A Theatrical cut is not released on home video formats. See more »

Shaky Camera ruined it for me
16 February 2013 | by heil_cf2See all my reviews

I love Die Hard, but shaky camera ruined it for me this time. I can't see because 35% film use shaky camera, 25% out of focus, blurry and 10% rapid zoom ins. Please STOP using Shaky Camera in Films, PLEASE :I am some of those remaining species, who go to watch feature films in cinemas. I never download a movie for free, I pay to netflix. Just doing my part to save the cinema I love. But, some directors and movie making houses, make stupid moves. One of them is use of unwanted, un-needed, shaky camera. So, I want to get my voice heard. If you are a fan, go see the movie, but if you don't like Shaky Camera, then think twice.
