Live Free Or Die Hard

The big ka-boom Die Hard series of the 80s/90s makes it to part four. An attack on the vulnerable computer and technological structure that supports the US economy, begins to shut the nation down. The mysterious figure behind the plot has covered every angle, but he “never figured on an old-school “analog” fly in the “digital” ointment”. Police detective John McClane (Bruce Willis) is on the case, aided by a young hacker (Justin Long).

McClane's famous catchphrase "Yippee-kay-yay mother..." is uttered only once – but its timing is fairly crucial. Despite some minor continuity errors and silliness, Die Hard 4.0 is a fun, fast-paced blast from the past that delivers the goods for old-school action fans...

Willis is on top action form here, even though the script is an utterly preposterous no-brainer with supposedly right-on digs at US politics. Those expecting a balls-to-the-wall action fest won't be disappointed. Those wanting to relive Christmas at the Nakatomi Plaza should watch the original...
