This is the first Die Hard film without the music of film composer Michael Kamen. Kamen died in 2003. Portions of Kamen's previous "Die Hard" scores, however, were incorporated into the score by Marco Beltrami. See more »

...but literally a quadruple serving of awesome "Die Hard" action.
My girlfriend and I saw "Live Free Or Die Hard" at a premiere screening
last night at Radio City Music Hall. The place holds about 5,000 seats
and it was packed.
With an 8:30 start, we got to our seats by 7:30. The movie didn't begin
until 9:30!!! Guess who was late?
Julie and I are not particularly big 'Die Hard' fans. And having to
catch a train home from Grand Central station at a certain time, we
both agreed that if the movie was sub-par, we would split early to get
So finally the lights go down around 9:20 and out comes Bruce Willis.
He respectfully apologized and then started jazzing up the audience for
the film. The excitement was palpable as the crowded theater whooped it
up with Bruce shouting "Are you ready!!!"
Well, Julie and I were, as we got swept up in the excitement and
cheered aloud as if we were at the ball game. Even the couple next to
us, I'd say they were about in their late sixties, dressed very
'proper', were just as energized.
The movie starts and a mere few minutes in, the action explodes. By
twenty minutes into the film, Julie and I were sold. Who cares what
time we're gonna get home!?
I have not had this much fun at the movies since I can't remember when.
I have always loved summer movies, but only the ones that deliver the
goods. The action sequences are top shelf, 21st century movie making
brilliance. These explosive scenes are a seamless composite of
fantastic, real world stunt work, and exceptional CGI. Hands down, they
make the film. And for an action movie with 'die hard' in the title,
I'd say that was the point.
It was awesome watching this film with so many people because it was
like riding a gigantic roller coaster, with everybody having a shared,
hair raising experience. People were cheering like when Luke blew up
the Death Star. The humor throughout was just right. By the end of the
film, our senses were stunned as we dizzily made our way out of the
theater, thoroughly entertained.
Excellent summer movie! Well done Bruno and crew!
