What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Theresa Smith Kindergarten cop out.
Jeanne Hugo Verrassend vermaaklik.
Kenneth Turan Willis has saving the world down to a fine art.
Nils van der Linden Like the film itself, the buddy setup isn't a new idea. But when it works this well, we're the lucky ones.

Peter Feldman it's a hard drive — if you like this escapist nonsense.
Barry Ronge It touches all the right bases for Die Hard fans, with that sly Willis charm intact, but it feels more like a rerun than a new film.
Evert Lombaert An enjoyable if unremarkable return to the world of John McClane. Hey, at least it's better than the second movie.
Annlee Ellingson Nineteen years after the original, the Die Hard franchise, character and star hold up
Peter Travers Live Free or Die Hard gets the action job done and you better believe that Bruce is still the man.
Tomatometer An efficient, action-packed summer popcorn flick.
