WHAT ELSE DID DIE HARD 4 LIE ABOUT?
I’m pretty sure that you can’t slide down a 100+ ft. concrete ramp in jeans without severely damaging both the jeans and your ass.
I’m pretty sure that those missile warheads don’t contain a tenth of the explosive you’d need to knock down an overpass. Reinforced concrete is tough–there’s a reason they make bunkers out of the stuff.
I didn’t see the movie, but air to air missiles have a 25 – 50 pound warhead, designed for fragmentation. Wouldn’t do much to a bridge except strip some paint off it.
Why did Die Hard 4 felt so “small” compared to the others? I want to blame the CGI/Green Screen thing but I’m not sure that’s it.
No, that sounds reasonable.
Can you remember who the villain was? I can’t. Consulting Wikipedia tells me Timothy Olyphant played some kind of diabolical super-hacker bent on stealing everyone’s data. For a tenth the effort he could have opened an investment bank and earned a few billion dollars.
Boring villain = boring movie.
Pfff. Like an English guy is going to try to do cool shit in a F-35.
Given that English guys invented the vertical take-off fighter… yeah, probably.
Generally when somebody is doing a parody of the provincial American, there is no need to explain that they’re being provincial.
I appreciate the subtitles; that guy was speaking American with a weird accent that made him hard to understand.
Yeah, well jumbo jets weren’t intended to crash, and yet they tried this as a test.
Forever’s a long time, buddy!
A 727 isn’t a jumbo jet
True. It’s even relatively small by narrow-body standards.
I loved flying them, however. Fast, handled like a fighter, rode like a Cadillac. Built like a tank.
You could cruise it at .90 mach and still slow it down enough to land on a short runway.
So you can add “True Lies” and “Avengers” to the list of liars, then…
At this very moment posters on The National Review The Corner are saying Obama is a traitor because he didn’t send fighter jets to Benghazi to rescue Ambassador Stevens.
