Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out: Die Hard like movies. aka “It’s Die Hard On A (Insert Place/Location/Item Here)


Close but no cigar: Cliffhanger (On A Mountain), Sudden Death (In A Stadium), The Rock (On Alcatraz), Air Force One (On Air Force One)


5 – Toy Soldiers
Die hard… In A School.  Much ignored 90’s action film aimed at kids.  Really good fun.


4 – Under Siege
Die hard… On a  Boat.  One of the better Seagal movies.  Which isn’t saying much these days.


3 –  Passenger 57
Die hard… On A Plane. Always bet on Black.  Actual line form the film.


2 – Die Hard 2: Die Harder
Die Hard… In a Airport. Darker, meaner but man it’s great.


1 – Speed
Die hard On A… Bus. The best Die Hard clone and a great film in it’s own right.
