A great turnaround for the Die Hard series.

Enjoyable action film & one of the best of recent years. It just didn't feel like a Die Hard film for some reason. I know it's 12years on from Die Hard With a Vengeance but Willis seemed to be too gloomy & pissed-off as McClane this time around. The villain was somewhat of a mystery also - was he causing havoc just to make a point or to steal loads of money? Not sure. Seemed to fizzle out at the end. If you were to swap Willis with Steven Segal this would have been an excellent 'Under Siege 3'

More enjoyable and involving than the previous installment, partly due to the added "daughter in peril" element and more moments of personal engagement between Mclane and the villain. The whole truck sequence near the end was very overdone and silly but the movie as a whole managed to win me over enough to enjoy it on several more occasions.

Not the best of the series, but a very good movie. Probably the best yippy ki Yay mother----er line of the series.

The fact that this is the second most fresh Die Hard is absurd. 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.

Incredible return of a character now decrepit, but still working interpretation by the legendary hard Bruce Willis, used mainly for sending a saga that should never have an end

The best Die Hard sequel.

Live Free or Die Hard is supported by a
Legitimate plot and villain while offering high caliber American action set pieces and one liners from Bruce Willis.

Just as a piece of virtuoso action filmmaking, this is a terrific time at the movies. Len Wiseman did a fantastic job.

Just finished watching the uncut version and while the villain is quite subdued for most of the film, it just works wonderfully. Massive fan of the franchise, this uncuts some of the profanity missing from the original which just works much better. The first films where hard and when I watched this at the movies, I liked it but it didn't feel like a true die hard film. Great action film that would deliver a belated sequel that would lead into a badly written and directed sequel. Great casting here feels like the previous film but targeted for the popcorn fan and film geek. must see in uncut, true version in my opinion.

Amazing how much I've grown to appreciate this sequel more over the past decade.

A body count to die for. Action more like a video game than a drama. Heed this warning that the IoT will be the death of us all for sure. The concentration of intelligence is also the concentration of idiocy. We're doomed. 911 was nothing.

Was a good film up until the ridiculous ending

Terrific! Justin Long nailed it! Super funny! He was the backbone of this movie!

I officially don't get why people think that Live Free or Die Hard was the first truly awful film in the franchise. In my opinion it's actually one of the better ones. This particular film is more in the vein of Die Hard With a Vengeance because it has John McClane fighting his way all around an entire city with a buddy. I'll admit that there are moments in the film that take everything to the extreme and perhaps push your suspension of disbelief. For one thing it falls into the typical movie idea of what hacking looks like (lots of fast typing,) and also it suggests that Justin Long with one keyboard can mystically break into any computer system with relative ease. Luckily, I've always been willing to forgive movie computers and the more simplistic/silly way they work. Some of the action is also a little over-the-top and extreme, but I think if you've made it this far in the Die Hard franchise then you can probably accept the fact that John McClane is basically a superhero. If you get past the hard-to-believe parts of the film, it is actually a solid story. I love that it gets personal at the end because I can feel the emotion in Bruce Willis' performance. I also enjoyed Justin Long's character getting stuck with McClane since their personalities clash. Live Free or Die Hard isn't all that smart, but it is a ton of fun.
