I don't know what you thought of some of the crazy stunts but I didn't find them obnoxious in the least. Bruce Willis still has McClane flowing through his blood and this time around he's given a rather different addition in hacker, Matthew, Justin Long. They make a good match. McClane plays father figure to Matt supplementing this relationship for his shattered father/daughter relationship which incidentally is healed as soon as she's kidnapped by Thomas Gabriel (the beautiful Timothy Olyphant). After the kidnapping she can't stop singing praises about a father she told earlier in the flick to get lost. She's annoying. Long and Willis are awesome and there's even a nice cameo by Kevin Smith playing paranoid conspiracy theorist hacker, Warlock. Props to the costume department here. Olyphant, for as evil as is, is dressed quite deliciously. I say see this flick if you haven't already. It's good clean fun.
