was quite possibly the perfect summer action blockbuster. All sorts of stuff blew up and everything Bruce Willis said and did was awesome. Justin Long managed to be not annoying, which is probably the most important characteristic of a good sidekick. The movie also presented the collapse of our country’s infrastructure in a very disturbing and realistic (?) manner.

Since I hope this movie makes lots of money for being terrific, I rate it four dollar signs out of four ($$$$ out of $$$$).

I went to see it with Ben and Janet, and while Ben shared my enthusiasm, I think Janet was bored. So I would like to see Janet write a short review of Live Free or Die Hard on their blog. Just for fun. Maybe something along the lines of, “Today, I discovered how fascinating the insides of my eyelids can truly be.”
