    I don't see how Die Hard 2 has made it this far or this highly rated. It's a pretty average movie. The original is obviously a classic and the third one is great. The second, not so much.

    I love Die Hard 2, but Braveheart is one of my favorite films ever... can't vote against Scent of a Woman, either...

    I love the Die Hard movies but 2 is easily the weakest and most forgettable.

    I have always felt that each Die Hard move was worse then its predecessor, so for me DH2 is the 2nd best. So I have been voting for DH2, but not DH3 so far.

    Sorry guys I still haven't seen it yet. I feel bad, because my boyfriend has been telling me for years now that I need to watch that movie.

    To clarify, you're only considering Die Hard 1-3, correct?

    There were more than three Die Hard movies?

    But yes, DH2 is definitely weaker than 1 or 3 and should not have moved on over Falling Down, but oh well. You can't have breakfast if it's lunchtime I guess.
