Video: "Live Free or Die Hard" trailer

Generic, but in all the right ways. Police cars hurtling through space and crashing into helicopters never gets old.

It’s mildly disappointing, though, that our favorite right-wing action star and Friend Of Yon isn’t taking on the jihad. The bad guys here are indeed terrorists but apparently not part of the “broad strata” from which so many of their real-life counterparts are drawn. Ace thinks they’re probably Serb, which makes sense: not only did they commit genocide, they’re safely caucasian and they got bombed by Clinton. Ready-made Hollywood villains.

Exit question: which state will Bruce Willis eventually be elected governor of?

Thanks to Slu for the tip. Click the image to watch.
