Movie Review: Die Hard 4.0

Willis!!! Who gave Homer Simpson a gun? Doh! This is worst movie I’ve seen this year. The movie breaks down this way: Crusty and computer illiterate Baby Boomer (Willis) teams up with Gen Y wimpy whiner (Apple Boy) to kick amoral well-dressed egoist gen X ‘s(villain) behind. As you know, all of today’s woes are due to Gen X … blah, blah, blah, a pox upon Gen X … but I digress. There isn’t much of plot, and what plot they had going is undermined by inconsistencies within the scenarios and techno-babble of the highest grade of nonsense I’ve heard in a while. I also wasn’t too fond of the generally negative position taken on the USA and its citizens.  The undertones of and the stereotypes in this movie deeply offended me as an American and as a hopeful person. Anyhow, the action was good, although completely implausible and against the physical laws of the universe. But then again, when physics makes no sense, use your force of will. This is the McClane Doctrine and ultimately the lesson Gen Y must learn. Technology, math, and reason are bad. The way of truth and good are gained through brute force and man’s will.  Sigh … what a sad, sad, movie. I give this 1/5. 1 point for good action (if you can suspend disbelief) and Bruce Willis’ indestructible body and bald head. Long live Willis!
