    This isn't a great movie -- it's barely good, really -- but it gets something about New Hampshire I've rarely seen onscreen: a defiant pride in the way things don't work out. Live Free is a comedy of vastly diminished criminal expectations. That's the fun of it, and the frustration, too.

    Live Free or Die is a low-fi farce that technically works. But in the end it feels like a pale version of say "Raising Arizona" or even "After Hours."

    Criminally short on laughs as it tries to wring humor from dull activity by dim bulbs.

It felt a little sacreligious to have so many computer effects from a movie where Willis is the anti-technology hero, but it didn't kill it. I had heard of a firesale before, and to see it in effect was cool, but the reason was a little stretched. Anyways, I would have seen it just for Maggie Q. If she was the lead villain, I would have given it an 8. Expand
