Live Free or Die Hard Reviews
I generally like Bruce Willis, even when he is in really stinker movies. John McClane - his butt kicking, lovable asshole, is back for more in this wildly improbable hacker terrorist flick. Yeah, it defies all logic (he takes on... a fighter jet... barehanded? HUH?). Of course it is over the top. But it is super fun to watch... how will he mangle the bodies of the terrorists THIS time?
I liked how they took out the baddie woman 1/2 way through the film instead of having another stupid 'final showdown'. On the down side, there was a bit of a cheesy 'final showdown' with the main baddie in a warehouse. At least it wasn't a smoke and steam factory.
It's die hard
It's still great.
It's the Christmas season
The season we celebrate the birth of our savior
Bruce Willis's character has a love interest
A character played by Alan Rickman and his terrorist organization take over a building.
This represents corruption.
Bruce Willis stops them from terrorizing anymore, Alan Rickman's character dies.
Bruce Willis is the hero of the story
Bruce Willis character represents masculinity, but also a force for the good.
Alan Rickman's character represents evil.
Good conquers evil in the end.
Whilst not being a patch on the original, Die Hard 4 is a surprisingly fun film and the best of the sequels.
