Title: Die Hard Trilogy
Studio Line: 20th Century Fox

Die Hard: Bruce Willis stars as a lone cop locked in a desperate battle against terrorists who have taken over a Los Angeles high-rise in the blockbuster action thriller that started it all!

Die Hard 2: Bruce Willis is back as John McClane, the hard-boiled, soft-hearted cop with the unhealthy habit of spending the holidays battling battalions of ruthless terrorists. This stunning action-packed sequel is a heart-stopping, jet-propelled journey through excitement and terror.

Die Hard With A Vengeance: Detective John McClane thought he'd seen it all. He's safe at home in New York, the last place he expected to find his most unusual foe yet. But a genius named Simon is about to engage McClane and the city in a deadly game. McClane's seen his share of bad days, but this time Simon says McClane is about to have a really bad day.

DIE HARD: "A nearly perfect example of an intelligently executed and tremendously exciting film. The picture quality seemed to be good, and other than some poor-sounding dialogue, audio was very solid."

DIE HARD 2: DIE HARDER: "A generally fun and entertaining film, but a number of miscalculations cause it to be less than the sum of its parts. The DVD shows somewhat drab but acceptable picture and sound but it skimps on extras."

DIE HARD WITH A VENGEANCE: "A fun and thrilling piece of work. The DVD has some definite image problems and audio quality seems to be excellent, but the package lacks significant extras."
