The epitome of 80s action. This movie rules! John McTiernan is simply a master of the lost art of action filmmaking. There’s actual tension, there are actual stakes and there are actual characters that you give a damn about. Bruce Willis is just gold as the badass John McClane, one of the best action heroes of all time. It’s so much fun to watch it every year and yes it is both an action movie AND a Christmas movie.
