IGN interview with Bruce Willis
Tuesday, June 12, 2007 - reddit
IGN has an interview with Bruce Willis, pending the theatrical release of his latest film and most recent in what was a dying franchise - Die Hard 4
. I'm really unimpressed with some of the previous IGN interviews I've read, especially one with writer-director/God Joss Whedon. That interview ran ten pages (would have fit on two if they didn't have a scrolling phobia) and didn't get around to anything interesting until the halfway point.
IGN: Why do you think the movie is as good as the first? What makes it just as good?
Bruce Willis: Well, two things. [Director] Len Wiseman and I both were of a similar mind in that we wanted the film to have as little CGI effects in it as possible. We wanted the film to be as hardcore as possible and as smashmouth when it came to the violence as possible, to have stunts and kills in the film that were unique, which posed a particular set of problems because you not only had to compete with our own first three films, but with the Lethal Weapon series and all the other knock-offs of the Die Hard films that have been done since 1986, of which there are many. Also, you know, not to mention how good stunts and special effects have become on TV shows like 24, of which I'm a big fan. ... Yeah, so… and TV's come a long way, you know.
First, he didn't even answer the question, and IGN let him get away with avoiding it. Second, Lethal Weapon
was simply a better film than Die Hard
on all counts, which hardly makes it a knock off. Third, ... you can read the rest
