    I didn't have so much fun in a long time. The action is completely ridiculous and over the top but even if it is not better than the first (it couldn't be) it is a worthy addition to the series (3 was just bloody awful).

    Nobody is cooler than John McClane when it comes to take down the bad guys. Watching this I remembered when I first watched Die Hard some twenty years ago, it felt like being a kid on Christmas day again.

    Plus being French I kinda like when the henchmen and baddies speak French in a Hollywood movie, makes us feel so special (the first Die Hard had weird German talk so I guess it makes the baddies more exotic).

    The cast was terrific, Timothy Olyphant can be a fantastic villain and Kevin Smith was just great as the Wa10ck.

    Some great one liners as usual (I just loved the hamster line).

    Yippee-kai ;;;!!! (how are you even supposed to spell that?)

    The beauty of these types of movies is that they are so over the top. You have to be selective as to who you see these types of movies with as people who can't "suspend" their disbelief never seem to enjoy them.

    I loved the scene when he was driving the truck and the airplane is trying to blow him up. Good stuff.

    That's right, the "out of bullets" line was awesome (the one after he used the car to crash the helicopter).
