This is the best of the Die Hard sequels in my opinion. Bruce Willis and Samuel L Jackson work really well together here. The last 20 minutes or so let the film down though, otherwise it would be quite close to being as good as the first.
What begins as a surprisingly great cat-and-mouse style action film with heated and intense sequences derails soon after the plot reveals its hidden intrigues. The first half is an action film on par with the original Die Hard, but the second half is unnecessarily complex and kills the good-will built by the first half. The film also suffers a few poor editing choices that make the film as if it has skipped over important details simply to save time in re-uniting scattered plot threads. Jeremy Irons is nonetheless excellent as the villain.
Personally I didn't really like the first two Die Hard films, I felt they we're too far fetched, too over-acted and had too many generic action sequences in them. But I actually really enjoyed this third one. A real interesting and unique story plus an amazingly talented lead cast. Great movie.
