Movie Review: Live Free or Die Hard

SimplyJosh.com has now moved to DownloadYouthMinistry.com - follow this link to visit the new site with new posts everyday!

Really enjoyed this movie for exactly what it is. A great reluctant hero in impossible situations, filled with heart pounding action and THX-rattling explosions. Went to the midnight opening with a few of the student ministry team. Good stuff.

The movie adds a new twist to the Die Hard franchise, with a bit of a cyber element to it all. There's not quite the sense of urgency of the entire movie taking place in one building with a literal crime taking place, but the tweak to the formula adds some new possibilities with helicopters, car chases and various other spaces.

The movie drags just a bit in the second act, but the first and third are almost perfect. Kevin Smith makes a fun cameo, the villian is solid and the Apple guy is a great partner to Willis.

Expect classic John McClain stuff with some True Lies and Sneakers mixed in for good measure. A-

I am excited to see this but aren't you a little dissapointed that the first three were rated "R" and this one is "Pg-13".

Not saying all good movies have to be rated "R', but it's a Die Hard movie!

We'll see after I see it.

A-? Really?
Now I may have to go see it. If I don't like it, I blame you.
