Descripción del producto
"No lo dudes. John McClane es el mejor... ¡Y está de vuelta con la última entrega de la palpitante saga de thrillers de acción Jungla de cristal! El detective neoyorquino John McClane (Bruce Willis) imparte justicia a la vieja usanza entre una nueva generación de terroristas que amenazan con sembrar el caos en Estados Unidos con un masivo ataque informático a toda la infraestructura del país perpetrado durante el fin de semana del Día de la Independencia."
Estados Unidos. Un grupo terrorista bloquea el sistema de ordenadores que controla las comunicaciones, el transporte y el suministro de energía. El cerebro de la operación había estudiado minuciosamente hasta el más mínimo detalle, pero no había contado con John McClane (Bruce Willis), un policía de la vieja escuela, pero con los conocimientos necesarios para frustrar una amenaza terrorista de esta índole.

Por el precio de un alquiler puedo disfrutar de las aventuras de John McLane, esta vez en Rusia.
El envio al venir desde Reino Unido tardó unos diez dias en venir pero todo muy bien.
Volveré a comprar en Justin Long sobre todo si encuentro otras gangas como esta

Now I'm going to stop right there. I don't want to spoil the plot, because finding out whom is responsible is one of the major "wow!" factors of the movie. John McClaine has to join the fray once again. But this time, John will not be facing Franz Groober, or some other thief or terrorist...no, this time he has to find the enemy that is right in there midst. Thieves, terrorist, assassins...it makes no difference. Because this time they have gone too far. When they find Johns daughter and take her hostage and threaten to harm her, they just don't know that they have made a serious mistake...
Both McClane and the frail but side-of-the-mouth funny computer geek speedily realize that Farrell's fringe involvement is merely the very tip of the iceberg, and that the stakes are much, much higher. Turns out that the contractor who'd hired Farrell to do a simple, innocuous code work is scheming to hold the entire nation hostage with his own paralyzing brand of cyber terrorism. Soon, the systematical shutdown of the American infrastructure is underway as, basically, all things computerized become compromised. This includes the targeting and usurping of key establishments such as the FAA, Amtrak, the stock market, and our satellite communications system. But, for Los Angelinos like myself, the most insiduous act commited may have been the subversing of *gasp* the street traffic lights.
For the now grizzled John McClane, nothing much has changed. He's a Lieutenant Detective now, so he's kind of moved up in the world. And he still has those perpetually pursed lips. But his personal life is predictably very much of a mess. He's alone again, divorced (with his ex-wife Holly gone back to using her Gennero surname) and estranged from his children. The start of the film has McClane pathetically attempting to keep tabs on his wilful and sullen daughter, Lucy Gennero (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). But she wants none of his reconciliatory gestures. Not to mention, McClane's an anachronistic type who clings to classic rock music and who is computer unsavvy. Good thing he's got a hacker in his custody.
It's such a treat to watch Bruce Willis again be in his element and playing this iconic role. Not that Entertainment Weekly has the final say, but I do agree with the magazine's listed assessment of Die Hard (Widescreen Edition) as being the top action film ever (ALIENS was number 2, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK was number 3). Nowadays, Willis, at 52 years old, is not as spry or free with the smirks. But his physicality, even at this stage, can't be questioned as he suffered bruises and scars in the making of this film. As McClane, he still trounces bad guys with the best of 'em. But, more so than McClane's penchant for arse whoopin', what draws the audience to him is that aura of reluctance, world weariness, and doggedness which he exudes so naturally. We relate to this ordinary, blue collar cat who, time and again, becomes stuck in the wrong place at the wrong time and is forced to angrily muddle thru because there's no one else to do the job. Although LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD portrays McClane as more of a supercop this time, who can go one on one with an F-35 fighter jet and murder an assault chopper with a car, I still fondly remember the first film, in which McClane passed muster as a very likable everyday guy barely keeping it together in Nakatomi Plaza. John McClane has built up so much good will that I'm able to easily forgive - and even celebrate - the high octane and wildly improbable excesses here.
Justin Long, dubiously best known as the Mac guy in the Apple computer ad campaigns, gets his number called for sidekick duties, and he does a good job, although there were times where his trembly act got to be too much. His Matt Farrell may be a borderline computer felon but his heart's in the right place. Long gets to make the brunt of the wisecracks while McClane tersely motors along (he says to some fellow geeks who'd just blown his cover, "Good luck at the Bad Timing Awards."). One failing of the film is the lack of a charismatic villain. Timothy Olyphant is unmemorable as former Homeland Security computer whiz Thomas Gabriel, whose mission is to digitally teach the nation and his ex-bosses a lesson while garnering sinful financial amounts. There's nothing fresh or arresting about Olyphant's acting performance, which basically consists of a whole lot of staring really hard. But, admittedly, it's fun to witness Gabriel's ever growing exasperation as McClane persists in surviving. Maggie Q does better as the evil hot Asian babe who's also a formidable martial artist. Her character Mai proves to be pretty resilient (but, ultimately, not resilient enough). Writer and maverick director Kevin Smith gets a chance to mug for the camera as the Warlock (or Freddy, to his mom), a jedi hacker whose base of operations is in his mother's basement. Bonnie Bedelia, by the way, is sorely missed, and the film would've benefited with more scenes between McClain and his surly daughter.
LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD is primed to be a colossal summer blockbuster, and, as such, it has certain criteria it has to meet. Director Len Wiseman (the UNDERWORLD films) comes strong and full bore with great visuals, a relentless pace, implausible action sequences, and crazy pyrotechnics. And all this performed at raucous, senses shattering decibels. The stunts are mindblowing, keeping in mind that CG effects were kept to a minimum. These are flesh and bone stunts being done here. But, still, at the heart of the loud thrill-a-minutes, there is Bruce Willis keeping it all together with his signature McClane-isms. I still get a vast kick out of his un-PC chortling whenever he causes yet another bad guy's demise (oh, that poor, agile-as-a-monkey French dude). As always, to me, his mockery of death, in a way, adds a layer of realism as this has become McClane's way of ackowledging his vulnerability and celebrating his surviving yet another harrowing scrape. LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD is PG-13, but the film finds ways to circumvent the rating as the ever resourceful McClane continues to cuss (but minus the "F" word) and ad-lib his way to amassing an impressive body count. Yippee-ki-yay, futhermucker.
Live Free Die Hard (aka Die Hard 4) takes place 12 years after Officer John McClane's Die Hard with a Vengeance. Life has not gotten much better for John. He is still divorced; his daughter lives close, but wants nothing to do with him, and for the most part Office McClane is just driving an unmarked car waiting for retirement.
That was until today. All of this changes when John asked to bring in hacker Matt Farrell (played by Justin Long) to the FBI for questioning. However, it seems that others have different plans for Mr Farrell, and the rollercoaster ride begins. It appears that Thomas Gabriel (played Timothy Olyphant) is not happy with the way our society has become and has decided to have a fire sale (a hacker term for basically destroying all the technology in the United States and bringing us back to the stone). There is only one problem with his plan, Office John McClane is now involved and as you can guess the body count gets extremely high and the typical McClane banter between the terrorist hits new levels.
All of the Die Hard films have not only been known for their action, acting, and script, but also for their direction. This time around is no different as Len Wiseman (Underworld) takes the helm and the movie looks amazing as ever. No shot disappoints and the story definitely benefits from having him behind the lens.
The one predominant fear many movie goers have had for the past few months is how would a PG-13 Die Hard film work? Would it stay true to the franchise? The answer is 99%....yes! This film is definitely a hard PG-13 (in fact it's unclear how it was not rated R) The violence is right up there with every other Die Hard film (more violent than Die Hard with A Vengeance) The only time the audience was groaning instead of cheering was the PG-13 version of Office McClane's signature phrase.
Live Free Die Hard is THE action movie for the summer of 2007. Yippie Ki Yay Mother... (edited for PG-13 Content)

Willis' 'John McClane' is the most likable of the action heroes introduced during the testosterone-driven 1980s, an honest cop unwillingly caught in the middle of brilliantly-conceived schemes of criminal masterminds, defeating them by outlasting them, physically, while tossing off some of the funniest one-liners you'll ever hear on screen. It's a formula ideally suited to Willis, and the latest installment, created by filmmakers who grew up on the original trilogy, succeeds in keeping things 'fresh' by raising the stakes, and playing up McClane as a 'dinosaur' in a high-tech world.
The plot involves the shutting down of not a building, airport, or city, but the entire country (to steal billions of dollars...as McClane quips, "It's always about money"), and, aided by a pacifist computer geek (Justin Long), and his uber-hacker buddy (a very funny Kevin Smith, in a welcome cameo), Willis is ready to abuse his body again, to save the day!
While the film's villain (Timothy Olyphant) lacks the urbane villainy of Alan Rickman or sophisticated panache of Jeremy Irons, his second-in-command (Maggie Q), is the sexiest opponent Willis has faced, yet, and the action sequences (done mostly 'live' rather than by CGI), are truly astonishing (particularly Willis 'taking on' a fighter jet in an 18-wheeler...you have to see it to believe it!)
The 'Special Features' ARE special, as well; my favorite is an interview between Willis and unabashed "Die Hard" fan Kevin Smith, which manages to be both insightful and funny.
VERY GOOD ACTION, lots of fun -- be on the lookout for the vehicle coming out of the tunnel. What an amazing feat.
I have this 2 disk set but it was late when we watched the movie and I have not had a chance to check the extras. Sometimes it is better to watch a movie two or three times before you watch the "how to" features or it really spoils the movie for you. This happened with Cast Away with Tom Hanks. I watched everything in one sitting and all I can remember is the blue screens used for the many scenes. I haven't even seen the whole movie in full since then. I would like to forget the "how to" features. 3/6/09 I finally did watch Cast Away recently and had almost forgotten how they made the movie and enjoyed it much more.
I recommend Live Free or Die Hard - I do not know what the theatrical version looks like, I believe it is included in this set, however. I am sure that it maybe doesn't have as much language and maybe graphic violence? Not really sure since the movie seemed "normal" for this genre. ;-)
3/6/09 I do NOT like that in every Die Hard movie the wife (and in this one - the daughter) hates the main character John McClane, and then he saves their lives and it is OK again until the next movie. Now why would the daughter hate her father? Because he doesn't live with them? Not his fault - the mother divorced him not the other way around.
