Live Free or Die Hard (2007)

The fourth Die Hard film raises the stakes from the previous three by having the estranged daughter of John McClane (Bruce Willis) get abducted by cyberterrorists. She’s Lucy Gennero-McClane (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), and if you’ve seen a Die Hard movie you know that a woman not embracing McClane’s surname as her own is shorthand for him feeling inadequate as a man. But things work out OK.

The next Die Hard movie paired up John McClane with his son, but that’s another gallery for another day. To die hard.
