Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Die Hard

I never realized how much anti-capitalist sentiment and jabs at yuppie culture there are in it until I got older. It's actually quite layered and deep in themes concerning the wishful collapse of Reagan-style greed and Piss-down, er Trickle-down, economics. More action films should take from the steady characterization and attack-and-release of Die Hard, as despite blowing shit up really good it's properly developed.
