A Good Day to Die Hard

Bruce Willis returns as hard-assed cop John McClane in this fifth entry to the Die Hard series. McClane heads to Russia to help his estranged son Jack (Jai Courtney, Jack Reacher) – a highly-trained CIA operative out to stop a crooked politician with links to weapons-grade uranium. From the director of Max Payne and the screenwriter of The A-Team.

Proving that a talent for being in the wrong place at the wrong time runs in the family, the younger McClane is in Russian custody charged with an assassination. John travels to Moscow to help his son and discovers he's stumbled into the middle of a CIA operation. The two generations of McClane find themselves up against a heavily armed network of Eastern badasses and will have to patch up enough of their differences to do what they do best - leave a trail of bodies in their wake.

Generally speaking, the action elements aren't the problem here. They're certainly loud enough. It's the obligatory intra-family squabbling and preposterous plotting that threaten to derail this nonsensical sequel.

Good Day in a nutshell? Father-son bonding with heavy artillery, a lot of big bangs, a triple-figure body count and little else.

Everything that made the first "Die Hard" memorable -- the nuances of character, the political subtext, the cowboy wit -- has been dumbed down or scrubbed away entirely.

I don't think it knows where it's going. I'm not even sure it cares.

The sense of exhilaration and fun that marked the best of the series has gone unaccountably AWOL.

Any remaining good faith in the franchise is now lost. Bruce's threatened sixth outing must surely be a bridge too far now.

At 98 minutes, this is by far the shortest of the Die Hard films, the rest of which run more than two hours. But it ends not a moment too soon.

A few reasonable action sequences are mired in family soap.

Honestly, this is probably one of the best films of the series.

Great action movie, I think in some ways a lot better than some of the previous Die Hard films, good to see Bruce Willis resuming his John Mclaine character, in saying that I do hope they leave the franchise alone and leave it on this positive good note.

If you want a action movie then this fits the bill. The story is weak, but then I did not come expecting a strong story. It might not be as good as the originals but it still was a great action flick. PS Remember to pick up your brain on the way out :)

While Live Free or Die Hard is not as bad as people make it out to be, in comparison to its three predecessors, it was bit of a disappointment to those staunch Die Hard fans. I for one, a John McClane disciple, anticipated a great deal having seen the awesome A Good Day to Die Hard trailer. Oh how I was misled. A Good Day Die Hard is an unfortunate mess...
