Mostly B’s: You don’t believe sequels suck, and that’s why you’re Die Hard 2! No one’s going to bring down your wife’s plane, not even Val Verde’s most infamous terrorist and his equally vicious henchmen.

Mostly D’s: Live Free Or Die Hard is your name, and solving bad guy puzzles is your game. Especially if that means teaming up with a 20-something computer hacker to kick bad guy butt both online and off! You’re old school meets new school, and you have the skills to always beat the bad guys, even if that means stopping a helicopter with a police car!
Mostly E’s: You’re A Good Day To Die Hard. You’ve been outwitting, outfighting and outlasting bad guys for a long time now, and it’s good to know you’ve still got what it takes to get the job done. Your crime-fighting, butt-kicking shenanigans has turned into a family affair with your children, Jack and Lucy, joining the business. Together, you make an unstoppable team.
