Alan as Hans Gruber




Quote :
Unlike most of its kind, the movie is well written (in spite of a hyperabundance of violence and foul language) and the story line well developed. Bruce Willis is one of those actors I simply don't like, but he did his best as a new-style George Of The Urban Jungle. Like George, no matter how many times he runs into a tree (or over the broken glass), he comes out intact at the end. Bonnie Bedelia and James Shigeta were very good in their parts.

The villains, however, steal the show. Hans Gruber -- a most extraordinary thief -- and his gang strut into Nakatomi Plaza and make movie history: This is the film that started the action-adventure trend of the last decade. Without them, Die Hard would have been another Towering Inferno with shoot-outs.

Alan Rickman gets the best lines, the best clothes, and the best photography. Watching his expression when the safe vault opens brings new appeal to Beethoven/Schiller's Ode To Joy. Mr. Rickman's characterization is brilliant, making Hans one of the grand villains in cinema, comparable to Gert Frobe's Goldfinger.

Rickmaniacs will love Mr. Rickman in a well-groomed beard standing by the window shutters. And he moves soooo well.

I do keep hoping they'll make a sequel where AR gets to wipe that smirk off BWillis's face.
