Action film is like pop music. This film genre primarily offers works with very little substance. It sells fun to the consumer. This has proven to be quite profitable. I have seen many action films in my time. I like less than a handful. Die Hard (1988) is my favorite. It’s about facing death. It’s about fighting death. It’s about cheating death. It’s about life. There may come a time in life when you must risk flesh and bone in order to do what is right. Never put the flesh before the soul. Death is inevitable. Do not be afraid to die for the right reason. There is a lot more to this film than many people realize. It is a tribute to the warrior. Die Hard redeems an entire film genre.
