The movie really lost me when Bruce Willis showed up on the screen and he wasn't named Bruce Willis, he was being called John McClane or something ridiculous. How unrealistic is that? I mean we all know his name is Bruce Willis who is he trying to fool?

Suspension of disbelief often applies to fictional works of the action, comedy, fantasy, and horror genres.

YodaBlues: Englebert Slaptyback: At least it got Timothy Olyphant into 'Hitman' and 'Justified', so we've got that going for us... which is nice. Obviously his small role in 'Rock Star' wasn't going to be very helpful.

Am I the only person who can't stand Olyphant? A buddy of mine enjoys him too and I don't see it.



Kinda like the comic Family Circus?

orclover: Showing my 9 year old son Die Hard 1 right now.  Getting a kick.  Cops are about to raid Nakatomi Plaza!


I don't have kids and I hope I never will. But one thing I am missing out on is showing Die Hard to my son. It should be a tradition. The new equivalent of taking him out into the backyard with a ball and glove and playing catch with him. If they remade Field of Dreams, it would be about a farmer who lamented not watching Die Hard with his father. Then he hears a voice telling him to build Nakatomi Plaza in his cornfield. After he does that, the ghost of Alexander Gudunov shows up in his cornfield. They reenact scenes from the movie. The voice then instructs the farmer to drive cross country to find Hart "Ellis" Bochner to ease his pain that his directing career never took off, even though PCU was kinda funny. The movie ends when the ghost of the father shows up. "Dad," the farmer says, getting choked up, "would you like to watch Die Hard?" The father replies "I'd like that."

Excuse me. It's getting dusty in here.

The author neglected to discuss the symbolism of Terry Bradshaw and Mel Tillis hiding the Hawaiian Tropic car in the swimming pool at the beginning of Cannonball Run. The only thing that did was make it purty. It wasn't running worth a shiat, and it was wet.

thatguyoverthere70: I saw it yesterday, it's not great, but it's not as bad as Live Free, and not as bad as most critics are making it out to be. As has already been pointed out, he was jumping around on the wings of planes in the last one. so pretty much anything is a step up from the last one. I was entertained by the car chase.

The bad guys waving around some device to make the radiation just magically go away was pretty ridiculous, though.

Honestly, while they all have their moments, none of the Die Hard sequels are very good movies.

After the documentary-quality masterpiece that was 'Live Free or Die Hard', my entire worldview is shattered. :-|

At least it got Timothy Olyphant into 'Hitman' and 'Justified', so we've got that going for us... which is nice. Obviously his small role in 'Rock Star' wasn't going to be very helpful.

Movies aren't 100% realistic?  They fudge on facts?  We should all protest and demand a refund!

This is what franchises are good at: Cementing the legacy of their heroes as larger-than-life pop culture figures. However, they do nothing for their filmmakers in the eyes of academic film history.

I don't go to see Die Hard movies for "academic film history".

It's why we hold The Beatles in higher esteem than The Monkees.

Speak for yourself. I'm a believer.

What's that you say? It's unfair to compare a shoot-em-up genre flick to artistic directors like Nichols, Levinson, Wilder, Ray and Anderson? Your honor, I present

No, it doesn't matter what you present. It's still f'n stupid to do so.

As Bruce said in "Pulp Fiction" (1994): "Zed's dead, baby. Zed's dead," and Mr. Willis, Haley Joel's ready for his closeup. He still sees dead people, and boy do they die hard.

I think this review was just trying to prove to people that the author has seen a bunch of movies, and can make pop culture references.
