    Gets the action job done and you better believe that Bruce is still the man. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Either Live Free or Die Hard will go down as the summer's best action blockbuster, or it's going to be one exceptional summer. show more

    Diverting enough if you want to see plenty of fast-paced action sequences, some heart-stopping chase scenes and plenty of things blow up. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    This fourth iteration of a series that first burst upon the world in 1988 turns out to be terrific entertainment, and startlingly shrewd in the bargain, a combination of minimalist performances -- interestingly minimalist -- and maximalist stunts that make you laugh, as you gape, at their thunderous extravagance. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Directed in workmanlike style by Underworld: Evolution's Len Wiseman, has its share of wild stunts and spectacular carnage, but it feels pokey and predictable, too. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    The action in this fast-paced, hysterically overproduced and surprisingly entertaining film is as realistic as a Road Runner cartoon. show more

    It's simply old-school stunts and movie magic. show more

    Chicago Tribune

    Early in LFODH, a villain taunts our hero, calling him "a Timex in a digital world"; McClane, characteristically, takes the dig as a compliment. Two hours, countless butt-kickings and hairbreadth escapes later, we know why. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    Surprisingly effective, rousing entertainment, which boasts plenty of old-school, at times jaw-dropping stunt work done the manly way. show more

    Willis, who at 52 looks great in an intensely physical role and can still spit out wisecracks and insults with the best of them. show more

    I'm reading all these positive reviews, and can't believe we all saw the same movie. It was totally stupid, and thank God I just saw it at the $1.50 show. This movie was made for 13 year olds to enjoy.

    If you accept the premise that all that computer mumbo-jumbo can be done and so easily, then you are in for a great movie ride. It is everything you can expect from a "Die Hard" movie and more. Bruce is at his best, in action and you'll laugh out loud in parts.

    So they went to all this trouble to be "authentic" in special effects, etc. But NOT ONCE did any of the so-called computer villans use a mouse! What's with all the clicking on keyboards? Are they writing home to moms?
