I was a little disappointed when they first announced this installment a family friendly PG13 in the US. Die Hard movies have always been known for the Blood, Violence and Language, its what made them what they are. When I saw this at the cinema I was expecting a tame(quite lame) sell-out, trying to cash in by having younger viewers. I was so wrong. This sequel has almost everything you'd come to expect from a Die Hard movie, and 10X's more. The film hardly lets up, from the first action scene to the last, the movie is a pedal to the metal, all out action bullet fest. There maybe less blood and language but you'd hardly notice as the film is so fast paced. Bruce Willis, here, is on top form as the wise-cracking cop, hell bent on doing his job and stopping the bad guys. Villians Timothy Olyphant and Maggie Q are also great, Timothy as the calm but crazy computer terrorist and Maggie Q as his kick-ass girlfriend. Along for the ride is Justin Long (Dodgeball, Jeepers Creepers) as the hacker Willis must protect, Long also excels in his role as a fish out of water computer nerd.
This Die Hard is right up there with the original, Better the 2 and easily as good as 3. It maybe free of 18 cert material but that dosen't matter. Just sit back and enjoy another crazy ride with John McClane.
Hopefully this Disc will be the same as the US unrated version that was rumoured to exist when the film was originally released.
