  1. Either Live Free or Die Hard will go down as the summer's best action blockbuster, or it's going to be one exceptional summer.
  2. Easily the best in the series since the first one.
  3. It's simply old-school stunts and movie magic.

    Though the movie's at least 20 minutes too long, it's deeply satisfying, full of old-school buddy banter and the kind of action sequences that make you burst out laughing at their sheer audacity.

    "Live Free of Die Hard" is strong and crazy with impressive CGI and the good guy-bad guy dialogue. It is one hell of a roller coaster ride.

It brings back why we fell in love with the first Die Hard,: jokes, explosions, and well-played out scenes. The storyline to this one is especially exceptional, as it feels very real (the third movies seemed like a stretch). If you like movies in general, you will like Live Free. Full Review »
