4 and 5, like most recent action movies just don't make sense (IMO). You don't know what's going on, you don't know why (and how?) the bad guys do this or that. And McLane is just hopping from one firefight to the other, randomly stumbling upon some intel on the way etc.

I actually saw #4, expecting it to a least follow in the footsteps of 1&3. Was so bad that I just looked at the first 30 min. or so of #5 just to be convinced that it's gonna be the same cr4p.

But 1&3. Those two did age very well. Yes, there's a bunch unrealistic things in there, of course. But at least McLane has to sort of figure out what's going in order to take down the bad guys, whose motives and means are, to a certain extent, beliveable.
Rule of thumb:

If Bruce Willis has no hair in it, it's not a Die Hard movie.

Another case of 'original' trilogy. Yippie Ki Yay!
