I've seen four movies in four days. I know, I know... You're thinking that that's a bit much. But it was a necessary part of the summer camp recovery process. Friday night it was Ratatouille (certified 4 Yarmulke™ rating). Saturday night it was Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (certified 3.5 Yarmulke™ rating). Sunday Night is was License to Wed (certified 2 Yarmulke™ rating). And tonight it was Live Free or Die Hard. I love the Die Hard Trilogy. And what's more, I'm pretty sure that if you don't like Die Hard (the original), we can't be friends...
Live Free or Die Hard
Running Time: 2 hrs. 10 mins.
Directed By: Len Wiseman
Starring: Bruce Willis, Timothy Olyphant, Justin Long, Maggie Q, Mary Elizabeth Winstead
In the fourth installment of the Die Hard Quadrilogy, John McClane faces off against virtual terrorists who are attempting to throw the country into chaos. The plot for the movie is actually based on this article from the May 1997 issue of WIRED magazine.
Going into a movie like this, one tends to have low expectations. I mean, as long as Bruce Willis says the line (you know which one I'm talking about), and a lot of stuff get destroyed, you walk out a satisfied customer. However, I had no idea that it would be so awesome.
What follows is a SPOILER FREE review.
So, what was good?
And so, to Live Free or Die Hard, I give the honor of being awarded a certified 3.5 Yarmulke™ rating.
Such a fun movie! If you haven't seen it yet, get a group of friends together and go. You won't be disappointed...
