I hope it involves a shuffleboard competition at the retirement home between John McClane and Great-Grandfather Franz Gruber.

It's like this: I enjoyed all four Die Hard movies, but the fourth one is easily the least.

I have the first two movies about equal (I know, I know, that's a rarer opinion, but I really liked the second movie), the third movie just a notch below those two (the movie *does* drag at a couple of points), and the fourth one a few notches below those.

Yeah, but even if they are, the older stars will get more people to show up just because they are old actions stars.  Why do you think that movie got made?

They're opening DH4 on Valentine's Day. That means the studio doesn't have a lot off faith in it. Die Hard is a summer franchise.

To each one's own, although I'm disappointed that the third and fourth movies have a lack of Carl Winslow and Christmas-y stuff (although there's a Santa Claus reference in Vengeance).

It was so amateurishly directed, is all. By the auteur who did the Geena Davis pirate movie. Bad editing, cheap FX and the 15 minute fight on the wing of the moving plane....how long was that runway?  And the villain was weak compared to the Gruber Bros.

Was a clever premise... *spoiler alert* (as if it hasn't been out since 1990)

...that the army special forces were planted by the terrorist, but instead of giving us an awesome action scene of Chief Lorenzo's officers storming the plane hanger and killing the terrorists (Both the Special Forces and Col. Stewart's men), they give us a 15 minute plane fight with three impossible scenarios. 1. An external fuel dump handle, 2. The engine not being destroyed by having a human sucked into it, 3. The jet fuel being able to be ignited by a lighter and the flame trail able to be fast enough to follow a plane into flight to detonate the fuel.

For some reason I could picture Klaus Maria Brandauer in that role. But more like the elderly gay uncle/older brother of Hans and whatever the other Gruber's name was. He'll be 70 this year.

/KMB was originally slated to be Marko Ramius (Connery's role) in the Hunt for Red October ... did not know that. That must be a funky movie in an alternate universe. Connery probably has Fred Dalton Thompson's cameo in that one too. "(Scottish accent) This business will get out of control ..."

Never mind the runway. How about the Annex Skywalk shootout? Specifically, the part where McClane takes ten seconds to reach his gun which is about 10 feet away from him and still beats out a terrorist who was maybe another 20 feet away and moving at a dead run?

Or when he proves to the police captain that he was given a machine gun full of blanks by entering headquarters with said machine gun, aiming at the captain, and firing? And the other cops in the room stand there?

I'd like Bruce Willis to get away from the superhero-McLane of Die Hard 4, to return to the everyman-hero-that-gets-the-crap-beat-out-of-him of Die Hard the First. I mea, the younger people may not remember it, but that was what was so groundbreaking about the first one. Not the one-man-against-all-in-an-enclosed-space plot. It was that, for almost the first time, we had somebody relatable as an hero, somebody believable, not an übermench à-la Schwarzenegger, somebody you could point out and say "yeah, if I were in the same situation, and grew some balls, I could do that".

Also, Bonnie Bedelia.

Although Rene Russo was waaay hotter over in Lethal Weapon land.

Plus the limo drivers name was Argyle. Dude was named after a sock.

/plus he was on Head of the Class, which shared TGIF with Just the Ten of Us, starring farkdoll Heather Lagenkamp, who hasn't aged well, but was super-hot back in the day

Yeah, in Die Hard he is just tough and resourceful and quick thinking, but just about inside believable limits. Die Hard 2 also is along the same lines. Die Hard 3 with the surfing on a dump truck, and the climbing down the tow rope from the bridge stuff gets pretty silly, and by the time you get to Die Hard 4 he is somehow able to predict the results of a car being driven into a toll booth will cause a ramp effect and launch it into mid air to hit the helicopter.

I laughed harder and more often during Die Hard 4 than just about any other movie I can think of. I don't think that was their intent, but I loved it.

"We're so secretive that we outsourced our super-secret hacking project to a bunch of nerds who don't know even know what they're working on. Now we need to secretly eliminate them so our secret stays secret. Let's wire a brick of C4 under their desk that'll go off as soon as they press Ctrl+Alt+Del. Brilliant!"

i'll probably still watch it when it comes out on dvd, but part 5 really looks like it turns mcclane into more of a cartoonish superhero than part 4 did.  personally, i think that the first three die hard movies are a contained trilogy by themselves, and parts 4 onward are like some alternate universe future that are only tangentially related to the original trilogy.  part 4 was hilariously entertaining, but the style of the action scenes was very different than the previous films, and mcclane was too invincible.  the part where he fell onto the back of the jet fighter and leaped off to slide down a demolished highway interchange while the fighter exploded over his head .... it was like something from one of the crank movies with jason statham.  entertaining, but not die hard.

Actually, the #1 spot has to go to McClane walking into a police station and machine guns Sipowitz to demonstrate that the gun was full of blanks and he wasn't immediately gunned down by every cop in the room.
 
2013-02-07 09:01:07 AM
Okay I can see it as the final installment of a second trilogy - do what they did for Lethal Weapon 4, bring back Bonnie Bedelia, Winestead and Justin Long, whoever's playing his son and of course, Al Pal, set the thing in L.A. at Nakatomi again and have it be a REAL ending.

The chase scenes will all end with him driving into a farmer's market. The rest of the film will take place at various buffets.
