There's not many movie sequels that are as good or even close to being as good so when I sat down to watch the new Die Hard I was not expecting much but it turned about to be a highly enjoying film.
The plot takes place 12 years after John McClane stopped Simon Gruber, hje's back with this toughest challenge ever. An organisation of Internet-based terrorists are taking control of everything in America from their computers and slowly taking over the country. Aided by Matthew Farrell, one of the hackers who accidentally assisted the villains in setting up the system, McClane must both find Gabriel and help prevent him from taking over America completely. But things are about to get personal.
You only have to wait a minutes to know this is going to be an action-packed film much more powerful than any other Die Hard. The action and CGI are incredible and you get it around each and every corner. I liked the use of the Internet as a means to cause terror evn if the plot was abit silly at times. Timothy Olyphant was very good as the brains behind the attacks and makes his character both fearsome and believable. Also Justin Long was great as the young hacker that has to assist McClane in stopping the terrorists before it's too late. Long and Willis both share good chemistry together which is important since they share most of their time on screen together. Willis is fantastic and even at his age he still manages to play this role perfectly. But the real star of this film is the high octane action and special effects that keep you at the edge of your seat. The film runs a little longer than I expected but with it's great pace you never have any time to think about it or get bored.As predictable as it is it is also one of best popcorn film's of the summer is now available to own and it's worth every penny.The Two-Disc DVD set contains both the Theatrical release as well as the Unrated.
