Movie Review: Live Free or Die Hard

Monday, December 24, 2007
I rented the fourth installment in the Die Hard the other night, and was quite delighted. We all know that Die Hard isn't just a great action movie, it's a great Christmas move. I was unimpressed with Die Hard 2, but loved Die Hard: With a Vengeance and Live Free or Die Hard lived up to the legacy set before it. It was full of action, sarcasm, humor, and Bruce Willis beating the tar of baddies.

The basic plot is that there's a group of people systematically attacking the United States electronically, targeting the increasingly connected infrastructure in a series of terrorist attacks. The FBI, having found replacements for the Agents Johnson in the first movie, is actually in the midst of trying to figure out what's going on and decides to round up anyone remotely capable of performing such an attack. Oh my, they're shorthanded and ask for a little local help getting a guy out of New Jersey, where good old Officer McClane happens to be stalking his daughter.

All this translated into saving the country

The plot was okay, but what was really fun about the movie was the non-stop action. I was a little disappointed in the PG-13 rating that the movie earned (the predecessors had an "R"), but there were plenty of things blowing up and, of course, the bad guys get there comeuppance at the end.

In the end, it was thoroughly enjoyable movie and one highly worth watching, or, as the main character is fond of saying, "Yippi-kay-ay, motherf..."
