Review When it comes to pure, turn-off-the-brain action, Live Free or Die Hard delivers and it's at least a little less burdensome in doing so than any of the summer of 2007's other to-date blockbusters. While it would be nice to trumpet that John McClane has returned in triumph, that would be a lie. Twelve years is a long time between sequels and, while it can be said that absence makes the heart grow fonder, this length of absence encourages forgetfulness. Bringing back John after all those years might have made sense if the script was great, but this is pyrotechnics 101 with a side order of computer-geek-speak. Strangely enough, Live Free or Die Hard may work better for an audience that doesn't know much about the series is than it will for Die Hard die hards, who will be wondering who that impersonator is and what he did with the real John McClane...The fourth installment arrives with a weight of expectations that Atlas would have trouble shouldering and, when the dust settles in September, it's unlikely that Live Free or Die Hard will be one of this year's big success stories.

Review "A Timex watch in a digital age," sneers villainous Thomas Gabriel (Timothy Olyphant, Deadwood's sheriff no more) of New York cop John McClane (Bruce Willis) in Live Free or Die Hard, the exhilarating fourth installment in the Die Hard series, the first since 1995's Die Hard: With a Vengeance. Willis was barely 40 then, he's past 50 now, but the only thing he has lost is the rest of his hair. And Gabriel is right, McClane is a relic from an analog world, but he also forgets the Timex advertising slogan: It takes a licking but keeps on ticking, and so--gloriously--does McClane...Sequels can be such a crap shoot, as this summer's disasters Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End and Evan Almighty have only too horribly demonstrated. But Willis, in gambling that he could successfully revisit the character that made him a true action hero, rolls nothing but sevens. Live Free or Die Hard's plot may be built on a flimsy house of cards that will not bear close inspection, but that character, John McClane, provides the movie with a solid foundation. This is action at its most entertaining and proof that there is a lot of life left in this franchise.

Dana Stevens, Slate ...deeply satisfying, full of old-school buddy banter and the kind of action sequences that make you burst out laughing at their sheer audacity.
Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal ...terrific entertainment...a combination of minimalist performances...and maximalist stunts that make you laugh, as you gape, at their thunderous extravagance.
Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times A slick and efficient piece of action entertainment, fast moving with energetic stunt work and nice thriller moves.
Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor Easily the best in the series since the first one.
Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald ...effective, rousing entertainment, which boasts plenty of old-school, at times jaw-dropping stunt work done the manly way.
