According to Bruce Willis and Director Len Wiseman in the DVD Commentary, the story originally involved McClane's son, Jack. Originally, he was supposed to be the computer hacker John has to deliver to the FBI. Eventually that idea was dropped and the hacker became the Matt Farrell character. It was then decided to bring in his daughter Lucy to keep up the series theme of McClane always having a personal stake in what happens in the story. See more »
In the tunnel scene, McClane and Matt went to the cement post to avoid being hit. The post was hit by a truck, the cement cracked so that the iron bars could be seen and McClane and Matt sat down due to the impact. On the continuing shot, no crack whatsoever could be seen on the very same cement post. See more »
Just went to the world premiere of Die Hard 4.0, and I was positively surprised. It delivers action in abundance, and the movie has a great visceral feel to it thanks to great stunt work, and the fact that Willis really steps up in the fight scenes. The movie keeps up its pace throughout, and the script works quite well, though the tech-talk gets a little heavy at times. I was particularly worried about Wiseman directing, since both underworld movies were a complete mess in my opinion, but he really keeps it tight and disciplined this time around. Is Die Hard 4.0 the second or third best of the series? I don't know, but it is certainly a worthy successor, and all the other blockbusters should look this way to see how its done efficiently, crisp and above all entertaining.
