A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

Die Hart's positive messages are mostly veiled by satire and comedy, but the through-line is one of self-actualization.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Kevin Hart plays himself, and the show contains some meta-commentary on what it means to be a Black movie star or a Black action star.

Violence

Die Hart features episodes of violence that are mostly send-ups of action movie tropes, such as martial arts fighting, knife play, and other instances of physical violence.

Sex

Aside from a simple romantic subplot, sexual content is limited to explicit jokes about sex.

Language

Frequent profanity includes 'f--k", "s--t", "bitch" and explicit sexual language.

Consumerism

Commentary about the movie industry and what a personal brand means in Hollywood.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

None of the main characters drink, smoke, or use drugs. Extras drink alcohol at a house party.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Die Hart is an action comedy series in which Kevin Hart plays a fictional version of himself trying to make it as an action star. After deciding he's done always playing the comedic sidekick, he attends a school led by Ron Wilcox (John Travolta), where he learns how to perform stunts, martial arts, and other skills necessary to become a successful action star. Subsequently, Die Hart features comedic versions of many of those sometimes violent action tropes. Profanity is used frequently and includes 'f--k", "s--t", "bitch". There's a mild romantic subplot and sexual content is featured in explicit sex jokes. There's some background drinking among extra cast members, but nothing prominent.

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.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about action school. Why does Kevin Hart want to be an action star? What characteristics of an action star does he possess? What does he lack? How does attending the action school improve his chances of succeeding?

  • What do you think about Ron Wilcox and his school? What else might be going on behind-the-scenes there that we're not seeing?

  • Families can talk about satire. How is Die Hart a satire of action movies? What jokes does it make about action movies? Are any stereotypes or tropes exposed in the jokes made?
