Me too! I watched it, and apart from a totally unnecessary and implausible fight with a geriatric at the end (oh, and a basic misunderstanding of how gravity works), I thought it was pretty well done (and I really, really, really don't understand the veneration for the rubbish - but fun - original).
Len Wiseman is a top guy and pretty talented.
Die Hard is not Die Hard if it's not Bruce Willis trapped in a single location (and no, New York doesn't count, Die Hard 3, even though you were a lot of fun and definitely get an Honorary Membership of the Real Die Hard Movie Club).
4 was a mostly awful movie only made good in a few parts by Willis being flippantly McClane-ish, but it was mostly awful and not remotely close to being a Die Hard movie.
I was in no way surprised to recently learn the Staggeringly Undertalented Len Wiseman was the director. I cannot understand how he keeps getting gigs apart from the fact that Crappy Big Budget Marquee Name Movies clearly make enough money to warrant his continued employment; it sure as shit ain't based on directorial panache and skill.
I met him once (didnt get to meet his wife though sob sob) and he genuinely is a top bloke.
All his films in my eyes have been okay.
remember though Len Wiseman was hired to direct Die Hard 4.0. He didnt write the script or the screenplay. He was just the director and I though he did a pretty good job with it.
For what its worth I also enjoyed the 2012 Total Recall too.
And anyway any film with Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel in can't be ALL bad...
Die Hard 4.0 was utter bobbins though. I watched it at the cinema and almost left at the fighter-jet-surfing scene...
