Yesterday night, I watched Die Hard 4.0 (or Live Free or Die Hard) with friend. I do not remember exactly the previous series. The only thing I remember is that John McClane (Bruce Willis) is a never-die hardcore detective. This time, he takes on a team of high-tech terrorist team (hackers) who wants to shut down the whole U.S.
I was quite surprised and enjoyed the fights of “analog” (Willis) and “digital” (hackers). Though not sure how realistic it is, but it is amazing to see what can be done after hacking into the top government systems. Hmm… it recalled my dream to be a hacker last time. Shhh…
By the way, Maggie Q (Mai) is gorgeous! In the movie, she is a beautiful hacker with sexy voice and skillful kung fu.
Due to the nature of a tech blogger, I often pay attention to the tech stuff in the movie. Nokia phones are highlighted in Die Hard 4.0. The terrorists use only Nokia N90 and Matt Farrell (Justin Long), a young hacker who assists John, uses Nokia 9300 PDA phone for satellite access and mainframe hacking. Oh, I love the “base” of Warlock (Kevin Smith). That’s very cool!
P.S. I learned how to steal a BMW car.
Die Hard 4.0 synopsis: On the July 4th holiday, an attack on vulnerable United States infrastructure begins to shut down the entire nation. The mysterious figure behind the scheme has figured out every modern angle – but he never figured on an old-school “analog” fly in the “digital” ointment. Bruce Willis is John McClane. No mask. No cape. No problem.
