A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Die Hart's positive messages are mostly veiled by satire and comedy, but the through-line is one of self-actualization.

What's the Story?
In DIE HART, Kevin Hart decides he's sick of being the comedic sidekick in action movies. During the press tour for his sixth movie with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (who does not appear) he reveals his new professional goal. He wants to be the star. After a public meltdown, Hart is given one last chance to fulfill his action star ambitions, but first he must get into game shape by attending an action school run by the mercurial Ron Wilcox (John Travolta). While there, he faces off with the confident and beautiful rival classmate Jordan King (Nathalie Emmanuel).
Is It Any Good?
Quibi may just be the perfect platform for Kevin Hart's satirical action comedy. Nothing about Die Hart is extraordinary, but each episode is a set piece allows Hart to get in, mess around, make a few jokes, throw some self-effacing charm around, and get out just as quickly. Nobody's expecting any of the jokes to be all-timers, but the writing and performances are good enough to warrant a longer format. As something that's built to be an easy, low-commitment, comfort watch, Die Hart does the trick.
