COMIC BOOK movies are dominating cinemas right now and no one knows better than Mr. Nick Fury himself, Samuel L. Jackson. An integral part of the Marvel cinematic universe, Jackson’s latest film Glass sees the actor return to the subject matter once again in a role he first took on some 19 years ago. Back when Jackson first played Elijah Price, aka Mr Glass, in M. Night Shyamalan’s superhero thriller Unbreakable, the idea of comic book movie trilogy was almost unthinkable

In certain circles, John McTiernan’s Die Hard with a Vengeance is viewed as the best of the five-film franchise. It has to involve John McClane AND Samuel Jackson's Zeus Carver character!

In certain circles, John McTiernan’s Die Hard with a Vengeance is viewed as the best of the five-film franchise. Better than the original. Those people are insane (and insanely wrong), but they are the ones who’ll be most excited by the rumor that’s making the rounds this morning.

Gets shredded in new video, is still the best die hard.

Die Hard: With a Vengeance - I hate buddy movies, but i loved this one. Samuel L. Jackson and Bruce Willis Play off each other perfectly. John McClane and a store owner must play a bomber's deadly game as they race around New York while trying to stop. Gets shredded in new video, is still the best die hard. Die Hard, the best of the 4 movies.

Die Hard With a Vengeance" is the kind of movie where, toward the end, you start looking for the kitchen sink. Willis and Jackson inhabit most of the scenes, usually together

Die Hard With a Vengeance" is the kind of movie where, toward the end, you start looking for the kitchen sink. Willis and Jackson inhabit most of the scenes, usually together. Their dialogue is heavy on obligatory talk about racism, even though there is not the slightest sign that either one holds racist feelings; I dunno, I guess the use of the N-word makes action heroes feel macho. They work well together as actors, Jackson's observant detachment a good counterpoint to Willis' manic desperation.

First published in 1977, this is the book that introduced Detective Sergeant "Fang" Mulheisen of the Detroit P.D., the protagonist in Jon A. Jackson's excellent series of crime novels. Also appearing for the first time is Joe Service, the mob hit man who would be Mulheisen's long-running nemesis.

The book takes place during a brutally cold and snowy December. As it opens, a beautiful and wealthy young housewife is savagely murdered during the course of an apparent burglary. I mean, one minute you're lounging in the tub with your aromatic bath salts and five minutes later, you're stumbling into the neighbor's house with a knife sticking out of your back. It's just that kind of a day.

Det. Sergeant Mulheisen is soon on the job and is intrigued to learn that the woman's husband is Arthur Clippert, a former gridiron star known as The Clipper back in his glory days. More recently, the Clipper is the last man standing when the Fidelity Trust Insurance Company goes under in an investment scandal of gargantuan proportions. Twenty million dollars is missing in the fraud and Clippert is the only member of the firm who hasn't yet been indicted.

Mulheisen begins doggedly pursuing the case and turns up a sexy young friend of the murdered woman who has some very interesting tales to tell. Things proceed as they naturally will and before you know it, it's Christmas Day; one of the biggest blizzards in history has hit Detroit; the city is basically closed down, and a bunch of really nasty villains are in the wind.

One really shouldn't say more for giving away too much of the plot, but Mulheisen is a very intriguing protagonist, and I'm very much looking forward to re-reading this series and following his career all over again. This story, like all of the others, is very well-told; the characters are well-drawn, and there's enough suspense and wry humor to satisfy virtually any crime fiction fan.

If you somehow missed this series, you might well want to look for it. But you should understand that Mulheisen and Joe Service have a long and complicated relationship that evolves over the course of the series. You'll definitely want to start at the beginning and watch it unfold.

Jackson is a real find, and this is where to start. These novels, mostly police procedurals, are concisely and wittily written, and as the books continue, we really get to know Fang Mulheisen and his city, Detroit. Later, in books like "Hit on the House" and "Deadman," we meet recurring characters such as likeable assassin Joe Service and his on-again off-again love interest (and Mafia princess) Helen Sedlacek. These are "real" people with foibles and weaknesses-- some are unapologetic killers, but we get to know them and, yes, like them. Fang tracks them down, and sometimes even catches them. If you like Elmore Leonard, if you like Carl Hiaasen, if you like Thomas Perry-- read these too. You'll become a fan, I guarantee it.
