"Mary Elizabeth Winstead was excellent as McClanes rebellious daughter, she's feisty, and lives up to the mantle of McClane, a true blossoming star"

Yippee Ki Aye! High Octane doesn't begin to describe this movie, as many of you may be wondering why the title 4.0? Well the answer is simple it is making reference to Web 2.0 the current technologies used on the internet and computers, which plays heavily on the plot of this movie, Hi Tech Terrorism, gone are the days, where in Die Hard the world is threatened by a military officer with a grudge, this time it the turn of Thomas Gabriel (Timothy Olyphant), the leader of an internet based terrorist organisation (with a grudge) who used to work for the US government and knows exactly how to bring them down, whose gonna stop him? Well the title of the movie gives that away, this wouldn't be Die Hard without the wonderful Bruce Willis as John McClane, this is truly Bruce at his very best, with his witty one liners and all the action you could ask for to show that McClane is still the hero we all know.

The supporting cast were excellent, Justin Long as the hacker Matt Farrell, who for most of the movie gets shot at by the ones that hired him.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead was excellent as McClanes rebellious daughter, she's feisty, and lives up to the mantle of McClane, a true blossoming star.

Die Hard 4.0 or as it's known in the states Live Free Or Die Hard is a action packed, thrill ride, fun movie, with everything you could ask for, buckets of action, funny where it needs to be funny and serious where it needs to be serious, with excellent stunts and superb sequences, a stand out sequence involves an F-35 Jet, an interstate bridge and a truck where a very daring McClane makes a remarkable escape.

The director, Len Wiseman (Underworld, Underworld Evolution) did a fantastic job with the 4th installment, I'll give this movie a well deserved 3 out of 5, it's an awesome movie.
