It's an over-the-top spectacle of action violence, and I loved it.

Provided you don't put too much thought into it and just enjoy the ride, you'll have a blast.

Ultimately, a passable new Die Hard movie is more than anyone of us ever really expected, and that in itself is worth a jolly old Yippee-Ki-Ay.

Brainless? Sure. Entertaining? Yup.

Though it's mostly entertaining (if overlong), there is a sense that the whole thing has become somewhat rote.

Len Wiseman handles many of the set-pieces with flair and tension.

Live Free or Die Hard needs a sense of joy, a sense that despite the harrowing nature of the situation, there is something entertaining - even to the participants - about the absurdity of the situation ... it doesn't have that.

The Die Hard series was about as animated as Rocky's face until director Len Wiseman restored it to its kinetic essence...

Live Free or Die Hard is an over-the-top, fun rampage.

It's not remotely plausible, but with Willis' McClane leaping onto the tailfins of passing jet fighters and bringing down helicopters by launching police cars at them, there's enough stuff blowing up that action fans won't mind much.

Live Free or Die Hard is as close as we are going to get to reliving the good old action films of the '80s.

I was actually nervous with all the gunfire and near misses. But then it kept happening over and over again. So instead of being involved, I studied the action sequences.

As more and more movies rely on massive CGI enhancement and Hong Kong choreographed wire-rigged fights, Die Hard revels in good, old-fashioned fist fights and real, immaculately executed stunts.

Its hyperactive 80's chic action crap and I had a blast just the same...

The bad guys' omnipotence at nearly every turn dilutes the film's suspense.

An enjoyable pop projection of post-9/11 anxiety. That said, it also makes you nostalgic for the days when irresponsible action movies didn't have to deal with it.

It is is about as realistic as a Tom & Jerry cartoon, but then again, this is a Die Hard movie . . .
