Default Live Free or Die Hard

One and a half thumbs up.

Stays true to the previous Die Hards - moves very quickly, lots of John McLean gets whooped up on, blood pouring everywhere, but can still hang off a building with one hand stuff.

Plot was actually pretty strong considering staying to the general spoof-like theme. As usual it is escapisim to the extreme - but there are parts of this one which defy reality even more that the Die Hards normally do - to the extent that you will laugh out loud at the absurdity at times.

Overall a pretty good man-flick, though the two wives enjoyed it as well. Certainly not one you have to overthink and a good half of a dinner-movie combo!

The supporting actor is someone you will recognize eventually as having seen him on TV very frequently!

In summary - definitely worth seeing at the movie theatre for those that like to go and experience the true FX, or on DVD for those that don't want to pay the 8 bucks!

I guess I will catch on DVD or wait till it hits HBO, always enjoyed the Die Hard movies.

Admiral was telling me last night that Harrison Ford is doing another Indiana Jones movie as well

Parts of that new Harrison Ford movie is currently being filmed in New Haven, CT. Some Yale stuff I'd have to guess.

Loved the movie.. 2 scenes did stretch credibility a bit.. the Airplane and the Cab flying through the air in the tunnel..
Otherwise I laughed my Azz off through the whole movie.. Ticked off a couple sitting in front of me that had no sense of humor.. NEVER go to the Matinee.. LOL.

Looking forward to seeing the "Die Hard" and "Indiana Jones" movies but can't wait to see the next "Rambo". Out next summer. Trailer is below.

Ah ~ action flicks~!!! Gotta love the fact that some of these "old timers" can still get out there and do their thang~!!!

Will wait for DVD rental or HBO, though. Don't really go out to the movies much anymore.....just to dang expensive.
