Doug Wright Reporting
Bruce Willis again stars as super cop, John McClane and when he's dispatched by the FBI to retrieve a world class computer hacker, Matt Ferrell-played by Justin Long-he assumes this is just a routine tag.
Little does anyone know that this kid has been duped into playing a role, along with other hackers around the country, in engineering a cyber terror attack of unimaginable proportion and those who used him now want him, and all the other hackers, dead.
McClane valiantly tries to keep this kid alive and along with FBI honcho, Agent Bowman-played by Cliff Curtis they try to figure out what's happening and who's responsible.
Watching our country come to a standstill with keystroke after keystroke delivering blow after blow to things as simple as traffic control all the way to major power grids and even the economic foundations of the nation, well it sent a chill up my back.
Timothy Olyphant delivers a great villain and Justin Long really comes through and is a delightful counter balance to Willis, who-by the way-is absolutely perfect.
Tough and wisecracking, Bruce delivers everything we hope for and more.
This movie is going to knock the box office over .3 enthusiastic stars for "Live Free or Die Hard," and it's rated PG-13 Also out this weekend, "Ratatouille."
This is the story of a little Rat named Remey-given voice by Patton Oswalt-who longs to be a Chef.
When he ends up in a world class bistro that has fallen from its original glory, he can't resist, clandestinely adding a pinch of this and that to their recipes.
The story gets a little complicated here but suffice it to say that a young man , who very well may have a claim on this restaurant, is helped by Remey in a most unique way.
Replete with endearing characters and a delightfully original story and delivery, "Ratatouille" features spectacular voice talent including Peter O'Toole as food critic Anton Ego and Janeane Garofalo as Colette a female chef in a mans kitchen.
This is a film everone in the family will enjoy.
