It's been 12 years since the last installment Die Hard With a Vengeance
, and many would seriously doubt the validity of another John Mclane adventure. I was one of those who had serious reservations about Bruce Willis once again saving the day. Don't get me wrong though, I LOVE the Die Hard movies
, but with new action characters popping up in the last few years (eg. Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt in the Mission: Impossible trilogy and Matt Damon as Jason Bourne in the Bourne trilogy), I was under the impression that the 90's style action movie was a dying breed.
But trust Bruce Willis to bring that style into a new era along with the help of director Len Wiseman (director of the stylistic Underworld movies). Firstly, there are very few CGI shots, and that's kind of a Die Hard tradition. To make everything as real as possible. And it works. Secondly, the acting. Well, mr. Willis still has it. John Mclane is definitely his most recognizable character. And watching this movie, one gets the feeling of catching up with an old friend again. A friend though, who is constantly getting beat up yet always manages to put a smile on your face with his trademark one-liners.The rest of the cast are uniformly above average for an action movie spectacle of this nature, unfortunately my only real problem I had in this area (actually my only real problem with the movie as a whole) was the villain. Timothy Olyphant just doesn't have the menace and maniacal glee of Alan Rickman (Die Hard) or Jeremy Irons (Die Hard With a Vengeance).
That being said though, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It's never going to be up for any Academy Awards, but you should know that when you watch a movie like this, you're looking for an action-packed thrill ride. So, think fast, look alive, Die Hard. ( 5 out of 5 by Carlisle Johnson)
