NYPD Detective John McClane has faced some brutal terrorists in his career, but now, he's about to face what may be his most dangerous enemy yet. John, who occasionally does work for the United States Department of Homeland Security, receives a call to bring in a hacker named Matt Farrell, because there has been a breach in an FBI computer system. Farrell is one of the many hackers who are suspected in the attack. After John gets to Matt's apartment, a group of men show up and try to kill John and Matt. They barely escape with their lives. A group of terrorists led by Thomas Gabriel are systematically shutting down the United States computer infrastructure. Luckily, Matt knows enough about hacking to figure out how Gabriel is shutting down the computers. Gabriel plans to bring the country to its knees, but he doesn't count on John and Matt. Gabriel wants John and Matt out of the way. It becomes personal for John when an enraged Gabriel kidnaps his daughter Lucy. Gabriel may think he now has the upper hand on John, but he has no idea how far John is willing to go to rescue Lucy.

Bruce Willis delivers another exciting, action-packed performance

Sep 14, 2016

Sure, this movie is at heart one mind-boggling action scene after another, but I also love the fact that many lines make me laugh each time I see it:

"Command center--it's a basement!"

"You just killed a helicopter with a car!"

"Damn hamster!"

My favorite in this series!

The movie “Live Free or Die Hard” is a movie filled with action and adventure that is great for the whole family to sit and enjoy. This movie is rated PG-13, having many intimidating scenes and coarse language. I would say that, in all the Die Hard series, “Live Free or Die Hard” is the best one. Because of all the exciting scenes, this movie is sure to keep you sitting at the tip of your seat. I’m sure that all the action and adventure admirers out there should keep an eye out for this terrific series. This movie is typically about a detective agent whose name is John McClane (Bruce Willis) who joins a nerdy hacker who is known as Matthew (Justin Long)to try and stop Thomas Gabriel from screwing America. The Marshall Fine, Star wrote that it is outrageously exciting and it is wild ride from start to finish. In this film Bruce Willis is awesome as ever. His captivating moves and his tricks and also his fights are incredible as ever. The director Len Wiseman shows of his talent by shooting scenes that are extremely hard to direct. The characters in this movie include Bruce Willis, Justin Long, Timothy Olyphant, Maggie Q, Kevin Smith, and many more. Being a typical Die Hard fan, this was my second time watching the movie. I actually wouldn’t mind watching the movie again, but I can’t wait to watch the rest of this amazing series!

This movie has some of the best sounds i've heard in an action film in a long time and it demands to be played on your HOMETHEATER!!! Explosions, machine guns, cars, a jet, and bombs give this action packed movie serious sounds for you to enjoy. I must admit one of my favorite scenes for sound is when Mr. Willis goes to bring in a computer hacker while the bad guys shootup the apartment. But there are many scenes that have just as good audio as that one. Which is why i bought this movie and added it to my collection. I have to give this serious sounding action movie 5 stars!!!!! Great sound effects, great action, good story, and cool characters. A very large hero with Salami, boiled ham, american cheese, tomatoes, mayo, a touch of relish, and a very large arizona ice tea with popcorn on the side.

Lots of action, one of the better die hard series.

You definitely need to turn off your brain for this one. If you know anything about computers you are going to be holding your head throughout. If you know anything about physics you have to keep reminding yourself "It's only a movie. It's only a movie." But, if you can do that, it is kinda fun to switch off and watch the flickering images ...
