Consensus: Die Hard 3: With a Vengeance gets off to a fast start and benefits from Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson's barbed interplay, but clatters to a bombastic finish in a vain effort to cover for an overall lack of fresh ideas.

Brian Lowry

Degenerates into an improbable, confusing series of chases and an overly involved heist that takes far too long to set up.

Peter Travers
Rolling Stone

It's a tense, terrifically funny action dazzler with a wow level in special effects that will be hard to top.

Greg Maki
Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)

... Highlighted by Irons, whose slick and sinister Simon is second only to Alan Rickman's Hans Gruber in the pantheon of "Die Hard" villains.

Time Out

There's little wit or originality on offer, just the familiar escalation of car chases and big bangs.

The big set pieces don't build, really, they just pile up.

If you ignore the last half, it's quite a good entry.

Pure action, with bigger and better explosions and stunts.

Mick LaSalle
San Francisco Chronicle

An audience on the edge of its seat doesn't quibble about plot points.

Less hand-to-hand combat, but still a very violent sequel.
