Storyline:

When someone hacks into the computers at the FBI’s Cyber Crime Division; the Director decides to round up all the hackers who could have done this. When he’s told that because it’s the 4th of July most of their agents are not around so they might have trouble getting people to get the hackers. So he instructs them to get local PD’S to take care of it. And one of the cops they ask is John McClane who is tasked with bringing a hacker named Farrell to the FBI. But as soon as he gets there someone starts shooting at them. McClane manages to get them out but they’re still being pursued. And it’s just when McClane arrives in Washington that the whole system breaks down and chaos ensues.

One review

  • I am a big fan of the “Die Hard”-movies, but this flick had so many continuity & factual errors, it took away the fun, in my opinion. Not only is “Die Hard 4.0” quite humorless, it doesn’t have any new ideas, although a couple of action scenes are impressive. The movie is really much predictable, corny and bad acted and the plot is completely ridiculous. I couldn’t believe that even a “Die Hard”-movie would treat it’s viewers to such a lame storyline, so I kept waiting hopefully for a twist in the plot, needless to say, in vain. The biggest problem however was that the rest of the movie didn’t manage to make up for any of these flaws, like sometimes is the case with other mindless actionmovies. Stay away from this movie, because if you are as big of a fan as I am of the original, you will become nauseated by how much they destroyed it’s reputation…
