Everyone always talks about Die Hard being a Christmas movie, but same could be said for this. Putting whatever feelings you may have for Mel Gibson aside, this is still a pretty great comedy action flick, and def one of the best of that era. And Gary Busey. I can’t really remember how much I liked the sequels, but this first one was entertaining, and it marked the start of a great run for Shane Black. The sax-filled soundtrack (by Eric Clapton no less) is goddawful though.
