Bruce Willis brings back one of the biggest action franchises in screen history. It's been over a decade since audiences last saw with New York cop John McClane (Willis)

Yea its WAY WAY WAY over the top but what a WILD FREAKING RIDE !!!!!!

BEST DIE HARD EVER 5 (FIVE ) TIMES BETTER than any of the other Die Hards if you like Action Movies this is THE ONE to watch.

Typically conservative Fishkill Movie theater I saw it in turned into a rowdy screaming laughing side show during the film.

MAN IT WAS A FUN FUN SUMMER BLOCK BUSTER
GO SEE IT :D

I didn't enjoy the second Die Hard movie, so I'll most likely miss this one.

I'm waiting for this...

I confess the guilty pleasure. There's something so likable about Bruce. He's a Ulysses, an everyman. When he's outwitting the bad guys you have to cheer! You say to yourself, well with a bit of grit I could do that! Ridiculous when you look, but fun on the face.

I do ask myself why people like to watch violence for pleasure. Haven't reached an answer.

I did not like the second Die Hard that much either but this new one is the ONE to watch.

FWIW I did not like the second Bourne movie. It lost a lot of its cool euro flavor. The first one was sort of like a Bond / Three Days of The condor.


Oooooh I have to Netflix Three Days of the Condor
That was a GOOOOD movie too ;)

"Oh, you've got a motorcycle. What happened to my Honda?"

"This isn't a motorcycle, this is a chopper. Sorry babe, I had to crash that Honda. Now hop on."

Close paraphrase, mere memory.

Ah America.

The Die Hard sounds fun, and I'm sure I'll see it eventually. But I'm really waiting for the next Bourne movie. "Um . . . . there's a bump coming up."

(Not that it particuarly follows the books, to my great disapointment. I still can't believe they killed off Marie! I spent the whole of the second movie waiting for her to reappear somehow, so they could have the kids featured in a later book!)

I really enjoyed Music and Lyrics with Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore. Is it as good as that?

I think they're great! Maybe a bit dated - Jason Bourne originally got his head messed up in Viet Nam, when his wife (a local) and two Amerasian kids were killed by friendly fire. Marie is a very well educated and intelligent specialist in her own field, who lends a lot more to the plot than a beat-up Mini and interesting hair. And they concentrate a lot less on the "tortured soul" aspect and a lot more on the action and subsequent recovery. I'd recommend them.

Usually I like the books much more than the movie. In this case, I actually liked the plot and action of the movie more than the Bourne book.

I know we've discussed the sillyness of judging actors by their political positions, but I've never been able to take Willis seriously after he made the '92 speech for Bush, asking which one of the candidates would you want to watch the kids. I wonder if George and Barbara ever did babysit while Bruce and Demi had a night on the town. :rolleyes:

I would not want this President to baby sit my beautiful grand daughters. I would be worrying some kind of brain damage would occur to them.

Saw it. Liked it. Not as good as the original.

The problem with Bruce Willis as an actor is he always acts like - well, Bruce Willis.

Two exceptions...

The Sixth Sense and Pulp Fiction.
