So in other words, the film is kick ass. Aside from your basement dweller complaint, hackers DO know exactly how to connect to the system they want. There's a lot of standardization. There's only a handful of Operating Systems, and connectivity is wireless now days.

Nowhere does he tell us how a pg 13 rating may have hampered this film. Apparently it didn't. Either way, I doubt you'll see me in the theater. And I do agree with his comment on the "I'm in!" ridiculousness. It's time for these Planet Hollywood old timers to either make good movies with original ideas, or go the way of the Governator.

OK, maybe someone can help me understand how this movie gets a c , when almost every other movie, including the piece of crap Spiderman 3, usually gets a B on this site. The trailer for this movie was more entertaining than Spiderman 3, and I will bet anyone 500 bucks that Bruce Willis doesn't dance once, let alone twice, in this movie.

goatartist, I think I can help with the PG-13 hurting this movie. A lot of what made John McClane's character was the way he talked. Everything I've read so far about the film suggests the violence is R level, but McClane can't talk like McClane because of the rating. It just presents a different character than the one I know so well now. Regardless, I'm still looking forward to seeing this.

76% at rotten tomatoes.

C because the movie doesn't limit itself to one locale, and because we don't see the hackers spending hours rooting around access ports for the right cable? WTF??!! 1) We've seen plenty of films limited to one locale. The original Die Hard spawned a whole bunch of imitators--Speed, Under Siege, blah blah blah. No need to go back to that gimick, we've seen it too many times. 2) Watching hackers go through the real technical aspects of their job is boring. BORING. I don't need to see that on screen. Certainly I don't see this as a reason for giving the movie a C , when even truly rotten dreck usually gets a B at worst on this site. As far jetpackjesus's concern about the PG-13 rating, it's a non-issue. People, McClane talks like McClane in this movie. The character's quips always had a lot more to do with a certain style and wit than just dropping f-bombs everywhere. But yes, he still occasionally swears too. It's not like he's saying, "Oh, gingersnaps!" every time he wants to cuss! I loved this film. I think it's better than the 3rd film. Maybe better than the second. It's a Die Hard film, and it delivers the old style action before CGI and Michael Bay took over everything. Go see it.

This is like the lowest grade Ive seen this site give out. It deserves a higher grade.

Okay, now that I've actually seen it, I was right. It's kick ass. Definitely the best money I have spent at the theatre this summer. The trailers only scratch the surface on this one. This is the 2d best of the bunch.

I just got back from watching it and it was the best action movie so far this summer and even beat out Spidey and Pirates and a few others...I don't understand the C grade the reviewer gave the movie, it should have gotten that B grade this site deals out so easily on a regular basis... I would recommend this movie even though some of you are concerned about the PG-13 rating and to be honest the rating does not hurt this movie in anyway what so ever and does not change McClanes character in any way what so ever...But that is just me and I liked it allot...

i just got back from watching this film too and i have to say it by FAR surpasses any other movie out this summer. It is better than everything from Spidey to pirates. The movie was freaking awsome (and the whole PG13 thing didnt bother me as much as i thought it would) all in all go see this film, it is one of the best in the franchise and deserved far more than a C (i would give it a B actually) My favorite die hard's in order: Die Hard Live Free or Die Hard Die Hard With a Vengance Die Hard 2: Die Harder
