(20th Cent. Fox, 1988)
In case the usual Christmas fare has induced cinematic diabetes, a little spice to go with the sugar: Bruce Willis in the movie that made him an action hero superstar, after the role was turned down by Frank Sinatra, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Richard Gere, Clint Eastwood, and Burt Reynolds. Still the measure by which dozens of other action films are measured, and justifiably so because it still delivers. Yippee ki yay.
