Live Free or Die Hard

Was this Justin Long’s first film as a grownup? Eurgh. What a mess. Gripping grimly onto the premise that COMPUTERS CAN CONTROL EVERYTHING we’re on a rollercoaster to disaster, which goes via an inexplicable Kevin Smith cameo to eventually Bruce Willis trying to converge his Christmas Die Hard-y-ness with that of Australia’s equivalent, True Lies (seriously, in Australia in the late 90’s/early 2000’s, True Lies was screened on terrestrial TV at least 5 times a year and twice over Crimbo) – with a Schwarzenegger-esque leap onto a F35 fighter jet in the finale. Wank. 👎
