Movie Review: Live Free or Die Hard (2007)

Starring: Bruce Willis, Justin Long, Timothy Olyphant
Director: Len Wiseman
Genre: Action
Rating: PG-13

An internet-terrorist organization is attempting to take down the United States and destroy all of the people that helped them get along the way. John McClane who now works for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security is told to bring in a hacker played by Justin Long. Suddenly McClane and the hacker and involved in this dire situation and must help save the U.S. and McClane’s daughter. This includes seeking help from odd places such as underground hackers.

Live Free or Die Hard is the Die Hard for the new generation. Bruce Willis shines once again as John McClane. Justin Long plays the perfect funny yet very helpful sidekick. There is a scene with a semi truck and helicopter that is hard to beat. Oh, and the van in the elevator shaft scene. This movie and The Bourne Ultimatum are the two best action movies I have seen in a long time.

I'm glad they made this fourth movie and by all means make a fifth with the same ensemble. A must see for any Bruce Willis, Die Hard, or action movie fan. If you know how to spell internet you have to see this movie.

“Seriously, when was the last time you ever turned on the radio to listen to popular music? 70's, 80's? Michael Jackson was still black? Pearl Jam, maybe?”
