User Reviews

You had one job: clone Die Hard. They did five of those and you still can't do it.
29 October 2020 | by sideriteSee all my reviews

Where Die Hard was funny, The Doorman is cringeworthy. Where Die Hard was visceral, The Doorman is pathetic. Where Die Hard has action, The Doorman has quick viewpoint change scenes to hide how ridiculous they are. Where Die Hard had an intelligent, pompous and scary villain, The Doorman has a stupid old Frenchman. Die Hard had a budget, The Doorman had an unused building. The acting is terrible, the plot is ridiculous, the characters are cardboard and still they couldn't get them right. How can anyone fail this much?

For crying out loud, there are five Die Hard movies there and the one you are trying to copy from was made in '88. You had 32 years to do it right! Ruby Rose was two years old when that movie came out! What more do you need?!

Bottom line: If at least they would have gender swapped it and copied the rest this would have been a good movie. No, they had to completely mess it up. Avoid this boring unsuccessful attempt at a movie.
