Bruce Willis (left) is back as seem­ingly in­de­struc­tible New York cop John McClane in the fourth in­stal­ment of the se­ries. Our wise­crack­ing hero is out to save his beloved US of A from a vir­u­lent cy­ber-ter­ror­ist (Ti­mothy Olyphant). It’s widely ac­knowl­edged that the orig­i­nal Die Hard was one of the great­est ac­tion movies of the ’80s, and Un­der­world di­rec­tor Len Wise­man serves up a stunt-smoth­ered, flame Christ­mas grilled, ac­tion whop­per to ri­val that in­fa­mous Eve at Nakatomi Plaza and leave fans of the fran­chise hun­gry for more. Justin Long (Go­ing The Dis­tance) is solid as McClane’s nerdy hacker side­kick, while Mag­gie Q high-kicks her way through the non-stop thrills and spills as the vil­lain’s top hench­woman. Keep an eye out for in­die di­rec­tor Kevin Smith as a sup er-geek who helps out McClane when he’s in a pinch. Yippee-ki-yay in­deed.
