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).

It can feel a little predictable in places, but Die Hard 4.0 has a few aces up its sleeve...

Either Live Free or Die Hard will go down as the summer's best action blockbuster, or it's going to be one exceptional summer...

It's been a long time coming, it takes a little too long to do its thing, and you won't remember a bit of it afterwards. But despite its apparent software upgrade Die Hard 4.0 still delivers action that feels more physically thrilling than a virtual retread of past glories...

I found the dialogue lame, the action ho-hum, the baddie insipid, and we didn't even get the full yippy kai-yay - this is a Diehard sanitised for the masses...

Does it herald a renaissance in the action genre? Not really, but it's a welcome throwback to good old-fashioned, '80s-style lunkhead violence, and no one takes a punch, kick, elbow, or bullet quite like John McClane...

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...

Big Bad Bruce still superb

As most reviewers have already mentioned, this is the poorest of the extremely high-quality Die Hard series, which is a bit of a shame not only because we had to wait aeons since the clever With A Vengeance but also because the original blockbuster terrorist franchise ought to have had a field day with material given what's happened in the US this...

fast furious and middle-aged!

I like Bruce Willis. He is not pretentious, he isn't a 'pretty boy' he says it as he means it and he can still kick a..! It was action packed (a little far-fetched) fast-paced and a very entertaining 2 hours 10 minutes. It is not a 'thinking' movie, or soppy romance it is just pure entertainment.

Die Hard in order of greatness: 3 1 2 4

The 4th Die Hard is the 4th best Die Hard but its still fun. Having no swearing was a bit jarring but the film was still a good watch.
