Live Free or Die Hard Reviews
December 13, 2014
For what it is, it works.
Granted its more over the top than Michael Bay and Tex Avery's love child directing the ending of a Godzilla movie on rock hard cocaine, but it works non the less.
Not as good as With a Vengeance or the original, but for me, it works non the less and is still pretty damn sold action entreatment.

Nothing on the trilogy, and just as poor as the fifth

It's gratuitous action is neutered by the PG-13 rating, Live Free or Die Hard is a disappointing fourth entry to the franchise.

Can it get any more over the top?
May 29, 2009
I was surprised how much I enjoyed this film. It is definitely over the top ridiculous in its logic and plot (though not as much as 2), but it moves at such a fun pace and has just enough substance that you just do not mind. The action is exciting and stunning, mostly because of excellent use of practical stunt work rather than CG-heavy design (which will always score bonus points for a film). Justin Long is actually quite entertaining as the sidekick character and while Oliphant is nothing special as the villain, he has a refreshingly low key approach to his larger than life evil than the last two antagonists. This one even has a good sense of humor, which I felt was lacking from the last film. It may not the tense but calculated pace or the character development that made the first film so incredible, but it is a great action film that even non-Die Hard fans can enjoy.

Best Die Hard Movie Ever
November 16, 2014
It's only named 'Die Hard 4.0' on the UK case. I enjoyed this film.. It moves along fast, with good special effects. The story is a bit 'old hat' but hey..enjoy the ride !

Not as good as the first two and some plot points that stretch your ability to suspend disbelief, but not a bad flick, especially if you like John McClane or Bruce Willis.

Better than the 3rd film, and probably just as good as the 1st two films, Bruce Willis certainly does not disappoint in this awesome action film!

BEST Diehard YET...........THE BEST

Ok we get it, it's a terrorist attack, hacked all the system in the US and now it's a mess. But who comes to the rescue, its the classy John McClane. Though it has all the action packed feeding you wanted from the previous Die Hard films, the plot is a lot of mess. But who cares, it's all about Bruce Willis doing all of these over the top action sequences which is ridiculously insane. A good action flick for everyone but not that memorable. Alcohol or no alcohol required, it's still a fun action flick.

"JOHN MCCLANE VERSUS CYBER-TERRORISTS"
- 'Die Hard 4.0' (or 'Live Free and Die Hard') is a 2007 action film by Len Wiseman (Underworld, Total Recall reboot). As the title might already suggest, this movie is the 4th installment of the popular 'Die Hard' film franchise. Action legend Bruce Willis (Pulp Fiction, the Fifth Element ) returns as John McClane. I must say I enjoyed this film. A good storyline, interesting villains and of course lots of over-the-top action scenes and special effects. Great one-liners and grumpy remarks by McClane. Co-starring: Justin Long (Jeepers Creepers, Galaxy Quest), Timothy Olyphant (Scream 2, A Perfect Getaway), Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Final Destination 3, The Thing) and Maggie Q (Mission Impossible 3, Operation: Endgame). "Yippee Ki Yay Mother F*cker!"
After embarrassing his estranged daughter Lucy (Winstead) on her date, detective John McClane (Willis) is contacted by the FBI to bring in the young Matthew Farrell (Long). He is one of the many computer hackers that has been approached by a group of cyber terrorists to unknowingly help them in their plans to bring down the whole USA. The organization is lead by Thomas Gabriel (Olyphant) and his right hand, the beautiful but lethal Mai Linh (Q). What starts out as a routine assignment, turns into a intense fight for survival for John and Matthew. Can the duo stop the bad guys?

A great follow up to the greatest action trilogy ever

Like the tagline goes, "yippe ki-ye mother-f*cker."
What a ride this was.

It's certainly entertaining and the action is non stop but it's also unbeliveably far-fetched making Die Hard With a Vengenace look realistic. Feels more like a caricature rather than an actual sequel.

Love die hard but with the age difference it just wont be the same but may be good...yippe ky yay MF.

An outrageously over-the-top action flick with everyone's favourite police officer John McClane, this time taking down cyber terrorists in Washington DC. Whilst its plot is preposterous, 'Die Hard 4.0' ('Live Free of Die Hard') is an entertaining, action-packed and adrenaline-fuelled summer blockbuster with outstanding action sequences and stunning visuals. Whilst it relies more on CGI than the other films do, the fourth instalment in the iconic franchise still acts as an efficient flick that will not disappoint fans.
