Hell, I wish I could say that about more movies these days.
Better to have over the top action than boring action right?
Personally I like over-the-top action. I practically jumped out of my chair and cheered when he rammed the car into the heli. Bad ass. Physics be damned.
I loved the first because it kinda played out like a slasher film in reverse. The bad guys were trapped with the good guy while he picked them off one by one. Most action movies back then were pretty much 'good guy rampages and kills hundreds of bad guys in over-the-top action to save and or get revenge for his daughter/wife/girlfriend/partner.' McClain stalking, harassing, and then killing the bad guys one by one was awesome as hell, and I loved watching Hans squirm.
