Tom's WrathMan Decides To LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD!!

Published at: June 20, 2007, 10:44 a.m. CST

Merrick again...
Tom's WrathMan (a reviewer known to this site) sent in this look at LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD, which more or less confirms my suspicion that the film is a pale imitation of its predecessors - instead of a balls-to-the-wall "real thing." I'll never understand or appreciate the thought process here. I "get" the notion that a studio can screw up & choose a lousy director and all. I don't understand the misguided belief that a watered down interpretation of a franchise known for (and established by) its rawness & visceral brutality will somehow be embraced by fans of the previous installments. The title alone...DIE HARD...is a statement, an attitude, and brings with it certain preconceptions and expectations. Expectations that clearly can not be met within the film's PG-13 limitations. The Powers That Be aren't tuned into this I suppose; it's too bad such a good opportunity for a great film may be wasted. I haven't seen it yet, thus I can't comment definitively. So...we'll see.
Here's Tom's WrathMan:
It feels very much like a sequel to Die Hard With A Vengeance, only not as good, in the same way that Die Harder felt a lot like Die Hard, but not as good. It's not set in a closed environment, and while the third film could at least claim to be "Die Hard in New York", this one is just like any other action film in terms of setting - the action moves from place to place throughout the film as the plot calls for it. Which brings us to the film's main problem... no, not the PG-13... the story. Or the script. Or the director. I'm not sure quite what's to blame here, but the story at the heart of the film is never really convincing. I can see what they've tried to do, but the chaos unleashed by the terrorists never feels real or threatening, the reality of what's going on is kept under wraps for too long and the whole thing gets a little confused. We skip back and forth between the barking-command-center-types and McClane and it never really flows. Action happens, story happens, it keeps you amused, but you never really get the big picture... there were too many questions, for me, about who was involved in what and why, some of which get answered, some of which are brushed over. And while both Die Hard and DHWAV had extended setups and then a reveal of what was really at stake, the set up was fun to watch... power lines being sawn through, hostages taken, bank vaults raided, the works. In LFODH, it's more a case of Timothy Olyphant saying "engage stage one" or "prepare the video package", and it's a little less thrilling. I'm still not sure what the point of the huge building demolition they show in the trailer is either - what purpose it serves is beyond me, other than to tie in with the title. I can see how it works thematically, but the film never really sells it that well. Plotting wise, it's more like the last half hour of DHWAV than the earlier sections, and that's not a compliment. So, on to the action, and that's actually pretty good in places. Yeah, it's PG-13, but they push it reasonably hard. There are a few bullet holes and squibs, and quite a lot of people falling or being flung to their deaths, and at least they show the impact, so it doesn't feel like they're holding back that much, unless you compare it to the previous films. It's certainly more violent than the Mission Impossible films, but nowhere close to the previous Die Hards. Most of the sequences are pretty good - the cars in the tunnel is probably the best, and the flipping car from the trailer really worked for me. The early shoot-out and chase are fun, too, but the fighter jet/big rig finale is a bit silly. The film suddenly becomes True Lies, but it's a step too far in a series that, at least initially, had pretty believable action. There are crazy moments in DHWAV, but this sequence is crazier, and with far more CGI. Bruce sells it well, but there's too much suspension of disbelief required for my liking. It also doesn't make sense - the plane wouldn't fire on the truck in that situation - and there are a few other moments earlier on that don't quite make sense (how did he get the car in there? why didn't he brake earlier? why bother with a bomb attached to a computer when you could just shoot the guy?) which is a shame. As for the language? First up, he doesn't say "Yippee Kay Ay Mother Fucker". He says "Yippee Kay Ay Mother Fu-GUNSHOT". It didn't outrage me as much as I thought it would have. It's a good moment in the film, and you can almost kid yourself that he says it... you get the point... but it's still a cheat. The rest of the dialogue is littered with "shit" and, in most places, is quite funny. There are some good McClane moments over the phone, taunting Olyphant, and they work. This is still McClane, just without his F-bombs, although there's one moment of mercy near the end which goes rather against his "let them cook" philosophy we saw in DHWAV. After the news of PG-13 had settled with me, I was actually starting to look forward to this. In the end, I was a bit underwhelmed, but had a good time. It doesn't flow that well, computers aren't exciting, Olyphant's character is not a patch on a Gruber, but the action's entertaining and, in the absence of any real, balls-out R-rated action films, it's nice to see something that at least does a decent impression of what action movies were like in the mid-90s and before. It's just a shame that it's a Die Hard film that's falling short of the mark, and not Hostage 2 or or 17 Blocks. I'm glad I saw it, but I'm not bothered about seeing it again, except... The one reason I will see it again is to see the Unrated version. Whether they shot any more violent footage is one matter, but I'm 100% certain that the language they filmed has been trimmed. There's one scene in particular where Justin Long can be seen in the background and his voice is WAY out of sync with what he's saying, and a few other bits that sounded a little like they'd had a word cut out. There's more to see here, I'm sure of it, but it won't save the film. It's a three star film for me.

    I love the little details in Die Hard

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    The guy chainsawing through the lines as the other guy tries to finish whatever it is he's doing, the SWAT guy who catches himself on the rose bush, Al Leong nicking a chocolate bar. I love that stuff, and those little things get missed a lot in modern action films.<p>Anyway, pretty good review, although I think Motoko Kusanagi (sorry if spelling is wrong) should have got this gig. Sounds like what everyone was fearing - bland action shenanigans and whatnot, which is a shame.<p>I'm still seeing it, though.

    PG-13

    by RINCON

    why must they continually do this PG-13 shit. It's been proven for like the last 2-3 years that you can make a hard R movie and it'll sell. 40-Year Old Virgin and Knocked Up were completely hard R's and they sold well. Granted those are comedies but obviously there is a market for R's and Die Hard has an obvious fan base. John McClane not saying fuck just kinda makes me wanna cry.

    "You killed a helicopter with a car!"

    by NapoleonDynamite

    That part of the trailer was all i needed to see to know this movie is crap. That scene is right up there with the scene in TRANSPORTER 2 where he flips the car upside down to scrape the bomb off the bottom. At least the Transporter movies are SUPPOSED to be ludicrous. Taking DIE HARD out of closed envirnment is incrediby stupid as well. The closed environment is the whole POINT of DIE HARD. That's the formula. Making this as a de-fanged, de-formulized installment of the original franchise basically turns it into just another action movie. You could substitute Seagal for the lead role and it wouldn't make any difference. Fucking suits.

    by www.valiens.com

    It seemed clear from the ads that the CGI 'splosions took the place of the gritty behind-this-guy realism of the first flick. They descend from that more with each movie, so not a big shock. I'm sure I'll see it anyway. It's gotta be better than that Transformers crap.

    The Beatles once took a Circus music recoding, cut it into 5 pieces, through it in the air. The order in which the tape was picked up made it in that order onto their record.<br> You could do the same with all Die Hard Movies to make one film and no one would really be able to tell.

    I concur, NapoleonDynamite . . .

    by TheManWithTooManyNames

    When I saw the manner in which McClane dispatches the helicopter with a police car in the trailer, I died a little inside; it seemed too over the top, too implausible, and so out of character (like McClane not dropping the F-bombs). McClane isn't meant to be a some sort of world class stunt driver-cum-engineer. He's a cop - who's only speciality should be wise cracking and causing chaos with guns or what ever he can get his hands on (within reason). But to be able to use a car like an RPG to take down a helicopter. Jesus Fu(gunshot) Christ! <p> And while I'm ranting: what was the point of using the fire extinguisher in the hall scene? McClane throws the fire extinguish at the bad guys and fires at the canister so that it'll explode and send Mr faceless henchman out through the window. Wouldn't it be easier for McClane just to plug two holes into the guy's head. Or would that have that upset the censors?

    For the 20th Century Fox screw-ups

    by ric_hard with a vengeance

    Can't make a DIE HARD film without John Mctiernan directing (or at least any of the Gordon/Silver/Gordon producers behind it). Holly McClane and sgt. Al Powell are characters that audiences wanted back into the series ever since DH3. The villian/movie quality factor: Hans Gruber (superb), colonel Stuart (cartoonish but very fun) and Simon Gruber (a different turn while still packing a wallop). R, PG-13 or NC-17, there must be bullets, blood, profanity galore and, above all, a good story plus a claustrophobic scenario. Make no excuses, you own DIE HARD franchise: whether it's on a plane, boat, subway station... hell, you can even go back to Nakatomi, a hockey arena or a LA bus. Live Free or Die Hard feels like Die Hard in the entire USA. Die Hard all over the world for the fifth installment? Why can't Willis grow some of his still natural hair instead of going bald all the way (that signature now belongs to 12 Monkeys, Unbreakble and -alert!- Hostage). Finally, I ask for "the good vibe" (in front and behind the camera) so each and every movie could really satisfy those who purchase the tickets, the same ones that allows you, Hollywood players, to eat your gourmet food, drive expensive cars and earn your actual undeserved paychecks. How far are we from 1988. Now everything is getting teenagers to the theater like they were some sort of cattle. Don't just make a buck, earn it and do it with your heart (OK, so I got it from Jerry Maguire, sue me).

    Good use of DH2 quote, whataboutbob25

    by amrisharmpit

    This film sounds quite disappointing and ultimately not worth seeing. It was one of the only movies I was looking forward to this summer. It's a shame they neutered it to appeal to a wider audience. It probably won't even do that well at the box office, since kids are going to flock to Transformers instead. I imagine this will draw a close to the franchise. Happy trails, McClane.

    The action in the original Die Hard

    by FluffyUnbound

    I think one reason the first Die Hard works so well and stands up so well is what's been pointed out here - an effort is made to make the action at least a little believable. You can almost FEEL what the protagonist is going through. The cut feet. When he hits the guardrail on the roof and the wind is knocked out of him. When he is struggling to stretch in the elevator shaft. The claustrophobia of the ventilation duct. It takes a little effort for McClane to get anything done. To go from that to TRUE LIES type action is sequelitis at its worst.

    harry's review

    by sokitome

    I started coming to this site about 8 years ago or so (it's been long time) I have loved harry's reviews at first but lately i don't know. I do believe he liked daredevil which i didn't and i can't believe he liked FF2. I haven't seen FF2 but FF1 was shit. But still i have faith that Harry hasn't completely sold out. But i just can't imagine HOW DH4 can come close to being good with a pg13 rating. Seriously. There are so many restraints on artists as it is (budget, target audiences, time) let alone all the restraints a pg13 rating has. IF harry's review says this is as good as the first then i guess i'll know for sure if he's sold out.

    Bee-Dubb lied to us. . .

    by cdubbs727

    Ugh. When Bruce showed up here, I had hope for this movie. Surely a star so aggressively defending his movie would have something worth defending...after all, I ate crow when I saw that Rocky Balboa was actually good. But with as fast as he disappeared and his silence since, I've had a bad feeling. When it was PG13 I had a worse feeling. I wonder if the "Yippee Kay Yay Motherfucker" line, though, was originally supposed to be heard clearly...but it was a sticking point with the MPAA and so the the gunshot was added in later. But still, ugh. And I knew that something was up when he started talking about Perfect Stranger. Remember he said that it had been edited to a PG13 but still had swearing and nudity?? Guess what Bruce? Perfect stranger was released with an R rating!!!! Why'd you lie?

  • June 20, 2007, 1:19 p.m. CST

    I dont think Rothman ever went at this intending...

    by Fridge

    ...to make a PG-13 rated Die Hard. I don't think there's going to be any more violence in the "unrated" DVD, I'm pretty sure it's all in the theatric version. They probably submitted it to the MPAA and had it returned to them as an R-rated movie because of the language, not the violence. Rothman probably figured he could get a PG-13 easily then by just cutting some of the "Fucks" out of the dialog. Is he still a pussy for doing so? Of course he is. Is Bruce Willis still a little bitch for coming on here and trying to sell this watered down shit as "the best Die Hard yet"? Unfortunately, yes, yes he fucking is. But the action in the trailers still looks pretty cool, the first time I saw that car about to land on Willis and the Mac kid in the tunnel then the other two cars get in the way at the last second, I was floored. I just wish this wasn't a Die Hard movie, I wish it was a random action movie with Willis and the Mac kid in it, then I'd be able to accept that gay ass PG-13 rating.

    #1 Action Film

    by skimn

    In EW's write up on Die Hard, they nail it in the first sentence. He's just a guy. Now that was 20 years ago, before GCI stuntplayers can duplicate any kind of death defying stunt a director can dream up. And DHWAV did have Mclane get blown out of the tunnel like a whales blowhole, and the jump onto the ship was pretty farfetched ( although the guy getting wire-sliced in half was cool ). Sooo, let me swim against the current and say despite the lack of "fucks", which Willis could sell in his New Jersey wise ass delivery in spades, I'm willing to give this a chance. As long as the action isn't too preposterous, and Olyphant makes a decent villian ( the dude from GO! ), I'll give it a go. I've been disappointed by Spider3, and bored by Pirates. The next big action flick is based on a toy line, and Bourne is not till August. The best time I had in the movies this summer so far was Knocked Up, so, if LFODH doesn't live up to the franchise entirely, but provide entertaining action, I'll be there. You can all call me a pussy now....

    by Abominable Snowcone

    I LOVE the original. I like 2 and 3 a lot, with a slight edge to 2 because it's at night and in a more confined setting. Still, some points go to 3 for the elevator shooting, which was more brutal and fun than anything in 2. The annex skywalk shootout was fun, but let's face it, it was very stylized with lots of slo-mo. Can't beat the old "I think I've got the winning ticket right HERE," although I must say "yipee kay yay motherfobang" might come close<p>Not.

    you are right - "Die Hard With A Vengence" is in my opinion the best dh movie - the first is good, but didnt feel as real or gritty as dhwav - that movie was dark, gritty and action packed - and the action was real - no cgi nerf action - and bruce looked and acted real - fucked up from the get go - hung over - bled from beginning to end - i was living in ny when it came out - the city looked great in that movie - sam j was great - dhwav should be the model by which all following dh flicks are measured

    by The Founder

    These two are the last of the big summer blockbusters left. Shrek 3, SM3 were both let downs. POTC3 was the better of the three. The surprise has been F42. It has been the best summer film so far. It was actually entertaining but not great, but no one was expecting F4 to be ground breaking. Die Hard 4 or 5 seems to be heading in that mediocre to mildly entertaining territority. The Transformers looks like it's going to deliver, and Harry potter will turn out to be the best Summer film if transformers fail. The harry Potter films are the most stable of the franchises. It looks great.

    Yes Skimn and here's why

    by sokitome

    The limitations the MPAA imposes on a PG13 cannot possibly allow this movie to be a true DIE HARD movie. Even if this one has the best plot and best villain there is no way it can have the visceral movie going experience the first movies were. Skimn i know you're a fan so I ask u to do this, wait to rent it on DVD, if u give in to seeing it in the theaters you only give the studio idiots who do these things more ammunition to make another bland "in the name only" type movies cuz they know fans will fork over $10 no matter what to see it. I'd rather give them a 99cent rental fee of a dvd, that's about all this is worth.

I'm not saying he wouldn't kick my ass in a real fight, I'm saying he doesn't LOOK intimidating enough to be a DH villain to strike fear in to the heart of anyone. He looks like he ought to be cast as a teacher on Dawson's Creek or one of those lame ass whitebread emo-tweeny shows. They should have had an ethnic villian, not another white guy, I don't care if he's American or not. And I don't like female helper bad-guys. It didn't work in DHWaV, that blonde wasn't even hot. At least she didn't speak. The cameo I would have liked in this is Marvin the airport maintenance guy from DH2. Unless he's dead, of course, in which case, I don't want to see him.

I don't doubt that it will be intense, but I do see that it has none of the same feel or mood that the other films had. The fact that they cut out Motherfucker is an insult to every fan everywhere. It's the trademark line. Even fucking Bruce Almighty had the word "fuckers" in it, so why can't DIE HARD??! I'm shocked that Bruce or anyone was willing to make the movie accepting that the studio said no to having that line in there, Bruce should have known better and stood up for the integrity of the franchise.

    whataboutbob25 is right: great scene in MIDNIGHT RUN

    by Frietag

    when de Niro flashes Yaphet Kotto's FBI badge to the camera. I noticed that years ago. It's just funny the first time, but if you rewatch it, you go, "How'd he do that?" The man swings around like he's attached to a pivot -- it's like a dancer's move. And it's just a little throwaway shot. Man, de Niro used to be so good. MIDNIGHT RUN was a comedy all the way, but right in the middle of it there's that scene where he visits his ex-wife and sees his daughter. Such a fu(GUNSHOT) heavy scene. I get dusty just thinking about it. They should make a sequel. I'm serious. De Niro's character has got his coffee shop under an assumed name somewhere, and Serrano has served his sentence and finally tracked him down. De Niro can't get the authorities to take him seriously because he keeps having to explain that he was living under a false identity, so he finally has to flee from Serrano, who then goes after his daughter (who has grown up into Hilary Swank, or better yet, Isla Fisher). Dad rescues her and together they flee from Serrano's hired goons. Trudging along some road in the middle of nowhere, They both get picked up by ... Charles Grodin, who it turns out has kept tabs on his buddy the whole time. "Know what?" he suggests. "Serrano's always going to be coming after us, or those close to us. Maybe it's time to stop running." De Niro agrees and they go out in a blaze of glory. Yeah, it's cheesy. But come on! Wouldn't you pay to see Bobby and Chuck go out like Butch and Sundance? I know I would.

    I rented XMen 3 from the library for free, and refuse to see either Fantastic Fours. Does that count? I understand your stance to "stick it" to Fox for watering down a franchise with a kick-ass history. And the recent Hostel brew-haha shows poor box office can affect a studios stance to certain product and may even bring Roth's career to a slowdown if not a halt. But I think this will pull in 65 mil easy in the first wed-sun weekend. I am really curious to see how this is reviewed though.

But the jet plane was indeed too much for me. Too familiar. Too beyond belief. The tunnel sequence is the "big scene" but for me the fight between Willis and Maggie Q is the best thing in the movie.

    It's been a fairly disappointing summer so far. First we had Emo-dancing Spidey, then we were given a three hour borefest featuring androgynous pirates and a monkey. If that's not bad enough a great comic villain is reduced to a cosmic storm cloud that devours planets. And to polish it off, a watered down family friendly sequel to one of the most violent franchises of all time. You know a culture is in decline when the only glimmer of hope for the season is a Michael Bay movie featuring enormous shape-shifting robots.

    Hell hath no fury, like a fanboy scorned

    by CherryValance

    I don't blame you guys. I'm kinda pissed myself. I'm not a big Die Hard fan to tell the truth, but I have watched them all and intended to see this regardless of the rating. I don't care how many 'motherfuckers' or how much blood is in a movie. I just like good movies. Seeing the trailers, with the daughter and the computer guy, and especially that Kevin Smith acting made me realize this has very little hope of being passable. Now if Walter hadn't kicked us to the curb, I probably would have gone anyway out of loyalty. But now, I see no reason to show up. The problem with a boycott is that if we don't go, the illegal aliens will go in our place. So it won't make a difference, but I still think we should stay away. </p> Even though Walter is at least half evil, if he's in a good movie I'll still see it. But not anything iffy. He lost his iffy privileges. </p> p.s. That Perfect Stranger PG-13 thing stood out to me too, because I had seen the film was pretty sure it was an R and thought it wasn't that bad. So his comments on that seemed really off and it made me wonder about his motivations. I think he wanted to seem cool to a bunch of geeks, and tried to say what he thought we wanted to hear to get a Rocky Balboa response from us.

And when people do speak their mind (freedom of fuckin speach motherfuckers!) they just get labeled as "Trolls" and "ignorant" and whatever. It's just more pussyfication, and apathy is everywhere! Did you think society & Hollywood was going to give us realism and cool shit forever? Did you think the stark violence of films like The Wild Bunch and Die Hard would last? If you want movies with realism back then we have to fight for it. If you want to see films where the men are actually men and the violence is as real as can be, and people can fucking say how they fucking feel, and there is actually a fucking story and not just a bunch of fucking CGI, then start fighting back! Speak up! Support others who speak up! Otherwise we are going to get PG-13 crap forever and live in pseudo religious/Christian world till we drop dead "darnit"!

    by Doc_Strange

    Seriously, If Bruce Willis is reading this talkback, dude, why did you let Fox utterly screw up the last bastion of your career? I can understand wanting to make another Die Hard but really all this plus the talkbacks you did just make you out to be desperate to get people in seats to see this. Unfortunately, we're not (all) idiots to be bought off by answering questions and shit. This movie actually looked good but when they decided to slap the dreaded PG-13 on it I just said to myself 'why bother?' I expected more but I think that's asking too much. Maybe a rental if I don't forget about it.

Of course if they got the McClaine character right it would be a different story--but he's not a regular guy anymore. He hasn't been for one and a half movies really, ever since they dropped Bonnie Bedelia from the formula actually. Hell, unless they get back Alan Rickman, it's not worth seeing anymore of these.

    DH 2 & 3 Sucked. I can't believe how many of you have convinced yourselves otherwise. Those sequels for the most part lacked the original's wit, pacing and replaced it with a bunch of explosions and stupid dialogue...And when did Fox become so afraid of producing a "R" rated action movie? (AvP; DH 4) and a PG Fantastic Four. It's like I posted in an earlier thread, they seem to have total disdain for their product and is only concerned with filling their coffers and any semblance of artistic integrity be damned.

It's impossible to take the word of the star of the show on the quality of the film. There's a massive conflict of interest there whether he chooses to acknowledge it or not.

    UK rating is confirmed as 15 or over

    by genrefanboy

    Confirmed as a 15 years old or over in the UK so may contain the language you are not getting in the US. This is because of the violence apparently. Bruce was at the London premiere yesterday but no-one asked the question about the rating. Blame the ratings on the modern audiences anyway as more often than not R is uncommercial. Most people over 25 only go to the cinema to see a movie once then wait for the DVD as their lives are too busy and you know in a few months you can see it as much as you want anyway so the studios know this and target the younger audiences as they do see the same films several times. Sure there are some exceptions but for an expensive 3rd sequel 12 years after the last you always knew Fox were not going to make it R.

    UM, Casino Royale was PG-13!!!

    by moto

    And it was seemed pretty brutal at times... it even had a fucking NUT torture sequence. I'm laughing at this whole "It's PG-13 so Bruce is a sellout and the whole fucking movie is going to blow!" Hey, I'm all for f-bombs and some bloody gore... but the naysayers here are fucking AICN hypocrits sometimes! <p> TBers piss and moan about the quality of movies, and how the quality of this sequel and that sequel are so fucked and childhood's are being raped because of it... YET, so many of you in this case are pissing and moaning and basically prejudging a movie because of its RATING! Because it can't have enough f-bombs and because it can't have the exact same amount of blood and gore as the other DHs did. Frackin' hypocrits. As if those details make or break a movie. Basically, there have been plenty of pretty hard PG-13s in the past (Um, guy ripping out a heart in Temple of Doom???). The action is there by the looks of it. If you watched the Willis/Smith video, we finally see that the wisecracking McClane we love is there. It WILL feel different and odd at first I'm sure because we haven't seen a true DH movie since 1990 (I don't count DH3)! 17 years ago. We're so attached to those first two movies that yeah, it'll be weird seeing another one! <p> What naysayers want in my book is a retread of the first DH. They want McClane coming to visit family/wife. They want that building (or airport) to be taken over by terrorists and they want McClane crawling through elevator shafts. BULLSHIT. We've seen that movie. We loved it, but we've seen it. We've seen the various knockoffs of it too, both good and bad (Under Siege 1 and 2, Speed, that awful Van Damme flick, etc.). So give me something more. Something different. McClane is 20 years older than the guy we saw in DH. It'd be lame to see a retread.

    PG-13 examples

    by moto

    Bourne Identity ,Bourne Supremacy, Casino Royale, Last of the Mohicans, Transporter 1 and 2, Mission Impossible movies, Red Dawn, Big Trouble in Little China, Temple of Doom, etc. <p> Pretty damn good action movies overall with plenty of death and mayhem and even a few f-bombs. Point being... this whole PG-13 thing is being blown waaaay out of proportion. Quality does not = a certain rating. Ridiculous. <p> As long as he kills mother(gun shot)ers (I actually hate that new gun shot trend but I gotta use it once), I'm good. I don't NEED to see their heads blown off, brains on the wall, or fifty bloody squibs exploding on their chest. Who cares? They die. Get over it;)

    by The Dum Guy

    I don't think that most of the people here are hypocrits. Most of the consensus is to watch this, but to wait for a version that will show more of what we would expect from a sequel such as this.<br><br>And, as far as all those films you've named, most wouldn't be good analogies to this. For one, Temple of Doom was rated PG and the follow up was rate PG-13, two, James Bond did the same thing, it went from going PG to PG-13.<br><br>When you see a change it how a film is rated, it does indicate (vaguely) what the product will be. If you've seen This Film Is Not Yet Rated, they pretty much break-down what each rating level will give you, i.e. cursing, violence, sex, you know things that were present in the previos Die Hard entries.<br><br>I honestly can't think of a series that got better after the rating went down to cater to younger audiences, films like Police Academy, Zorro 2, or Speed 2. It's not that anyone here really wants this to fail, only that what we are seeing and hearing doesn't bode well for this movie.

    by Neo Zeed

    You may not need to see those things in an action movie, but others like myself do. Especially in a Die Hard movie. A movie like Lethal Weapon, Die Hard, Hard-Boiled, or The Last Boy Scout wouldn't have that visceral edge that action fans enjoy with PG-13. Sometimes filmakers need the leeway of an R-rating to make for a more effective action scene. Casino Royale rode the edge, but that doesn't mean that all movies should be forced to be that way. Most directors can't work that way, and why should they have to? Toning down Die Hard 4 is a lame marketing decsion made by assholes and has nothing to do with art or entertainment value.

    by moto

    Agree with you 100%, I do. It sucks that they went that route. It shows the studio's obvious insecurities and outright idiotic approach to movies nowadays. They are truly out of touch with the audience. <p> BUT, PG-13 is not, and should not be the deciding factor for someone to not go see this flick and judge the final product rather than rely on trailers. Those flicks you mentioned had that edge... I agree. But the fact is, the rating system is so fucked that one movie rated PG-13 is fluffy as hell, while another (case in point Casino Royale among others) is pretty damn hard and looks like an R-Rated flick. <p> The core of the Die Hard films is John McClane. Not the f-bombs. Not the bloody kills. There are plenty of awful action movies with those extreme elements that have been forgotten and/or don't hold a candle to Die Hard because of that character. If that's there, then about 75% of what we love about Die Hard is there. <p> Anyway, I agree with you. Well said. But the PG-13 thing is still blown out of proportion until we actually SEE THE MOVIE. If it turns out to be fluff... then they fucked it up. If it turns out to be a pretty hard PG-13... then well done. <p> I for the record, I just rewatched Last Boyscout... a movie that I remembered as a gem in the action genre. Well, it's really pretty awful. It reminded me of Arnold's LAST ACTION HERO. Full of action cliches to the extreme. The only saving factor is Willis... who is pretty much John McClane in that one too.

    RE: Moto

    by Neo Zeed

    If the movie started of as a PG-13 franchise then fine, but Die Hard didn't. You said if LFODH is true to McClaine then it's all good. However half his character belongs in a R-rated film (f-bomb droppin and mashed to a bloody pulp, while killing bad guys HARD.) I think people are underestimating those aspects of his character, and without any returning characters from the previous sequels, we need as much McClaine intact as possible. Frankly Bruce's performance in DH3 was one of the few things that reminded me that it was a Die Hard movie. BTW I don't get your beef with the Last Boy Scout, the script was pretty darn tight with snappy dialogue and a few great touches (Billy Blanks suicide, squirrel on Bruce's head, the foul mouthed daughter, one punch death, the list goes on and on) It was cliche as far as that it followed an action formula but within it created a lot of memorable moments (and intense action scenes). You mentioned the Transporter 1 and 2 on your list of great PG-13 movies, but I thought those were pretty crap. There's only so much goofy Kung-fu I can take and I don't believe he's in any danger throughout the movie. It's just an acrobat movie and since I don't watch the Olympics because it bores me, well you get the point. Later!
