Movie of the Week: Live Free or Die Hard

It’s rare that I get to use “awesome” to describe a movie but this movie was awesome.

I was worried in the beginning that this was just going to be an action movie starring Bruce Willis playing a character who just happened to be named John McClane.

And for the most part, it was. The action was over the top compared to the previous Die Hard films. But I didn’t care.

They don’t make action movies like this anymore with car crashes and the hero getting the shit kicked out of him and more physical work that CGI. The last movie like that was True Lies I think.

Justin Long didn’t annoy me as much as I thought he would.

I think what this movie lacked was more interaction between Bruce Willis & Timothy Olyphant. Olyphant had some great lines, both to Willis and his techie crew. Thats really what makes a Die Hard movie – the back and forth between McClane and the head villain. What few conversations they did have were good.

P.S.: I’m officially in love with Maggie Q.
