It is too bad that Bruce Willis can't crank out this films more often. John McClain is probably the greatest action hero in all film history and this installment packs a wallop with a slew of action and humor.       McClain is asked to bring a suspected computer hacker to be interviewed by the FBI. The actor playing this hacker is the guy who does the Apple McIntosh comercials. It is interesting to note that he seem to prefer a Mac in this one. Anyway, McClain shows up just as …

In the sequel-dominated decade that is Hollywood since 1999's release of The Phantom Menace, it was only a matter of time before Bruce Willis put in another Die Hard flick. This time the bad guys are a collection of international criminals led by an ex-fed genius. The good guys are led by John McClane of the NYPD, his whiz-kid sidekick, and various feds. Like previous die-hard movies, we have lots of shooting, a gorgeous bad babe, some fistfights, and of course several helicopters, instead of just …

12 Years after Die Hard with a Vengeance McClane is back and he has a teenage daughter who calls him John and simply doesn't want to know. John hasn't seen any action since him and his old partner Zeus took down the New York bomber Simon Gruber. Now seems like the right time to get back in action and kick some major terrorist booty, only this time he needs the help of a computer geek. Ex-government official turned cyber terrorist aims to get revenge on the government that refused to listen to him …

Pros: Edge of your seat action (even though you know McClane's going to be fine)     Cons: Let's just say I have several.     The Bottom Line: I had high hopes for this movie - I thought I'd be giving it 5 stars no problem. As you can see, it's one star short.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot. When I saw the previews for Life Free or Die Hard I was excited. I love Bruce Willis, I enjoy Justin …

If you love the 'Die Hard' franchise, you won't be disappointed by the latest installment. I never tire of movies that are generated from plots about computers, so in the software and the hardware, the movie gets it right. This time a terrorist is targeting hackers around the country, planting viruses in computers that detonate. His motives are revealed later in the movie, but his maneuvering at his underground headquarters spread to sabotaging communications, energy, and traffic. One of the most …

No, this movie does not compare to the original DIE HARD. Let's just get that out of the way right off the top, shall we? I frankly can't imagine any movie comparing. It was one of those rare movies that turns an entire genre on its head...or even invents a new genre. How many DIE HARD rip-offs have there been? Many of them awful...and many of them pretty good...but still, they are knock-offs. SPEED? DIE HARD on a bus. Still a great movie...but it didn't feel 100% original. DIE HARD did. Simple …
