How can the same thing happen to the same guy four times? Quite simply the answer to that is because Hollywood has nothing better to do? I have no idea why I felt the pull to this film that I did, perhaps cause the first Die Hard is one of my favourite action films of all time and why shouldn't it be, it started the wave of all the action films. But the curiosity I had for John Mclane didn't quite live up to expectations. While the threat in this movie was pretty heavy, the actions scenes intense, and the same cheesy Bruce Willis lines as witty as can be, I'm afraid the film failed on so many other avenues. First and foremost, the villain in this film is a no-name. At least in the previous three films you had a ring leader that would be feared such as Alan Rickman, Bill Sadler, and Jeremy Irons, the mastermind of this terrorist plot is some actor known as Timothy Olyphant who can best be described as a Ryan Seacrest impersonator. One wouldn't totally buy, or at least I didn't that this wetspot was the mastermind of some internet terrorist plot that takes out the entire nation of America. Also Mclane's sidekick in this little adventure isn't as annoying as the villain, but his most entertaining lines are "Did you see that?!" The film also has some horrible editing, there are several shots where the dialogue is not in synch with what the characters are saying, and it is so unbelievably noticable? So why did I give it a six out of ten? Well it is a an action film, and let me tell you it has some brilliantly wonderful action scenes, that include a wicked fight scene between Willis and some bad-ass Asian woman that refuses to die, a fight between an F-35 and an eighteen wheeler, and of course the money shot the "Yippee Kye Yay Mother------" line and it's circumstance was definitely worth waiting for. Seeing the actions sequences on the big screen is worth your money and time, but other than that this Die-Hard didn't have near the depth the other ones did.
