My opinion on “Live free or die hard”

As excited as I was about the first three parts, so deeply disappointed I was about this weak part in the “Die Hard” saga. The first three films were great because of the tension, the clever action scenes and the cool hard McClane with his snappy one-liners and dry cynical humor. The latter is still in this film, but the action is soooooooo exaggerated, I could sigh at the sight of it alone. The first comment I had, and I’ve also read it on IMDB, was that they were blocking all streets in DC except those streets where the chase would happen. That chase ended in a tunnel (admittedly irresistible scenes) and when the lights were turned off by the bad-guys, I couldn’t help thinking: Euh , I would at least put on my lights. Nobody did …

Live Free or Die Hard
But the most irritating part for me was the one where McClane is driving a truck over a bridge and being chased by a fighter jet. This was so grotesque, so superhero-ish. This belonged in “The Avengers” or another over the top superhero movie … but not in “Die Hard“.

Bruce Willis = “Die Hard”. But it’s really easy to cast him and then put on the movie poster “Die Hard: blablablablabla …”. Success guaranteed.

Live Free or Die Hard
Timothy Olyphant plays the would-be-bad-guy. An expressionless face. He still needs to go a long way until he’s as crazy as the 3 bad-asses from the first three parts. Justin Long acted very convincing as the youthful computer nerd who was almost wetting his pants with all that violence around him.

My rating 5/10
