"OUTRAGEOUSLY EXCITING... A WILD RIDE FROM START TO FINISH!"
-Marshall Fine, Star
"The best of the best is back and better than ever" (WNYW-TV) in the latest installment of the pulse-pounding, thrill-a-minute Die Hard action films. New York City detective John McClane (Bruce Willis) delivers old-school justice to a new breed of terrorists when a massive computer attack on the U.S. infrastructure threatens to shut down the entire country over Independence Day weekend.
Locked and loaded with real stunts, genuine humor and nonstop excitement, Live Free Or Die Hard is "a slick pice of action entertainment!" (Los Angeles Times). Yippee ki yay!
High-tech computer terrorism faces off against low-tech car chases, bullets and explosions as John McClane fights to save the country in this pretty-typical action flick that is the fourth in the Die Hard series. I'm not normally a fan of action movies, but I grew up with the Die Hard series so I had to see this one, too. It's got some really cool scenes but - as is to be expected with this genre - a not-so-great plot and no depth.
