Consensus: Live Free or Die Hard may be preposterous, but it's an efficient, action-packed summer popcorn flick with thrilling stunts and a commanding performance by Bruce Willis. Fans of the previous Die Hard films will not be disappointed.

Len Wiseman handles many of the set-pieces with flair and tension.

An enjoyable pop projection of post-9/11 anxiety. That said, it also makes you nostalgic for the days when irresponsible action movies didn't have to deal with it.

It's an over-the-top spectacle of action violence, and I loved it.

It's not remotely plausible, but with Willis' McClane leaping onto the tailfins of passing jet fighters and bringing down helicopters by launching police cars at them, there's enough stuff blowing up that action fans won't mind much.

What's the fourth "Die Hard" called? I keep forgetting. "Die Hard: With a Pension"? "Die Hardened Arteries"? "Die Laughing"?

Provided you don't put too much thought into it and just enjoy the ride, you'll have a blast.

The bad guys' omnipotence at nearly every turn dilutes the film's suspense.

Movie characters like McClane are the Paul Bunyans and John Henrys and Pecos Bills of our age, the stuff of tall tales spun with the technology of an age whose campfires are found in multiplexes with stadium seating.

Ultimately, a passable new Die Hard movie is more than anyone of us ever really expected, and that in itself is worth a jolly old Yippee-Ki-Ay.

Up until the most recent movie("Good Day to Die Hard") this was the most over the top installment of the movie. McClane(Bruce Willis) is visiting his… More

This was a nice (enough) return to a great series. There's plenty of action and drama, and over-the-top stunts and sequences, Willis still has the gusto he… More

Over-the-top action with our favorite action hero, John McClane. It's been dumbed down to a lower Parental Guidance rating to attract more viewers but the… More
