Die Hard 4 (the BETTER title)
July 04, 2007
Live Free and Die Hard? Technically, shouldn't it be Live Easy and Die Hard? Oh man, I cannot stand the title. I actually almost didn't watch this movie because of the title. Thankfully I still watched it. But the title? Yech! I hate it. Moving on.
Okay, I am a huge Die Hard fan, yes I even watch Die Harder! I have been looking forward to this movie for awhile. This is a good film. It is not up to par with DH:WaV, but it is still good. One thing I loved was the action sequences. It was fun and it was nice seeing McClane get back to kicking ass just because he wants to do good, not because he has to, but because he wants to. Then when his daughter is included, then he is just balls to the wall crazy. Yes, some of the sequences were way over the top. The freeway and fighter jet were so unbelievable I had to laugh, but that is what Die Hard is now. If you can believe that John McClane is the center of all these terrorists acts then you can believe he can land on a Fighter Jet and then jump to the freeway. Len Wiseman is a fairly bad director, however, he does a decent job with this movie. Nice shots and good old fashion action sequences.
The Story is detailed but over the top. The acting can be wooden, but Willis is great as usual and Justin Long does a really great job as well. The Kevin Smith cameo is great ( poor guy is balding up a storm though!). There is not much more to tell about this story. Watch the movie. It is highly recommended. It is fun to see McClane back and kicking some butt.
I am hoping another sequel and another director. Because this has a gret chance of being another great trilogy. How awesome would that be? Willis has TWO Die Hard Trilogies? Wouldn't that be a first? Click here to read the staff review by Mania.
