    Synopsis


    A Good Day to Die Hard
    John McClane (Bruce Willis) and his estranged son Jack (Jai Courtney) team up to protect a government informant in Moscow, and thwart a major crime in Chernobyl in this sequel from director John Moore (Max Payne, Behind Enemy Lines). Russian politics are in tatters when veteran detective McClane shows up in the nation's capital, and learns that his son is working undercover to protect Komarov (Sebastian Koch) -- a notorious whistleblower who some powerful people would like to see silenced. Protecting Komarov won't be easy, even for the cop who's single-handedly defeated small armies of terrorists, and the sharp-shooting son he's never known. Meanwhile, when the fearless father and son catch wind of a deadly plot unfolding in Chernobyl, they face the fight of their lives in one of the most hostile landscapes known to man. Cole Hauser and Mary Elizabeth Winstead co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Overblown and not very good

      What is it about the 5th film in a series being so awful. Star Trek V, Rocky V and now the fifth Die Hard. I am a huge Die Hard fan. I like all the previous films. They were all very entertaining, with good believable action. This one on the other hand is a complete mess. It starts off well, with an interesting opening credits sequence. It's all downhill though once the car chase begins. How anybody could think that John McClane could deliberately drive his car over dozens of other vehicles possibly injuring and killing people is beyond me. He's cop. He's not there to hurt innocent people. Also notice no police cars. Anywhere!! Then there's the ludicrous drive between Moscow and the setting for the conclusion. On paper this is a 600 mile drive into a neighboring country. Couldn't happen in one night, plus got to think getting across the border would be an issue after all the mayhem they caused in Moscow. The finale itself is also not very good. All in all a very disappointing outing. Maybe there will be a Die Hard 6, which for Star Trek and Rocky were excellent films.

      Not Bruce Willis' Finest Hour

      I loved the first few installments of the Die Hard series. Unfortunately, it seems Mr. Willis and company have gone to the well several times too often. I found this latest installment almost unwatchable. The picture (as with most blu-ray movies) was great on my large screen TV and sound was good as well through a surround sound home entertainment system. Technically, everything is as well done as usual with blu-ray discs. Unfortunately, creatively, I did not find this movie enjoyable at all. I found the first Die Hard movie to be exceptional and the first couple after it to be quite enjoyable (if not quite as outstanding as the original). However, recent installments in the series (including this one) just aren't very good.

      When John McClane makes a BAD movie...

      he kicks that BAD movie's butt!!! Seriously, no one makes something this BAD unless John McClane wants it this bad. I will admit that I had to fast forward through various ridiculously long scenes, like "the chase," but otherwise I just watched in awe of the stupidity, the insanity, the "John McClane-ness" of everything going on all over Russia. Oh, and you want plot twists that make absolutely no sense? Sure!! We got those out the wazoo. So all in all I can only recommend this movie if you truly love bad cinema, complete with quite possibly the dumbest plot line - I use that term very loosely - ever created. So all in all, proceed at your own risk, and definitely enable your "suspension of disbelief" filter. CSJ

      For Die Hard completists

      If you're a fan of the Die Hard series, you'll probably want to add this film to your collection. If you're new to the series you may not find much to like here. Oh, there's plenty of action, lots of CGI, and interesting cinematography, but the plot and acting leave a lot to be desired. In this film, Bruce Willis' character reunites with his son (a government operative) in Russia and they end up trying to save the world from a nuclear disaster. The film doesn't have the humor or any of the endearing qualities of the earlier and attempts to make its mark with the audience through helicopter and car crashes. It certainly lacks inspiration, but will provide most viewers with about a 100 minutes of escapism.

      Well I suppose all sequels begin the downfall after so long. The first three Die Hard flicks and their stories were pretty good. Live Free or Die Hard went into the daughter routine and got bogged down. This last one, went into the son routine and flopped majestically. At least the opening scenario of the car chase/crashes was over right away. Sure, that is going to happen in Putin's Moscow. Blarney! The strained relationship between Jack and John McClane is a total gagger. Again, plenty of unrealistic action, blood spatter and bad guys falling like flies chasing a DDT truck. Honestly, I cannot recommend this movie to anyone except die hard fans of Bruce.

      One more outing for John McClane...Bruce Willis does an admirable job getting through another installment of the Die Hard franchise. Nothing new in this one other than the introduction of McClane's adult son as the possible replacement for him if Hollywood keeps trying to crank out more of these. Jai Courtney is a very good action star in the making. Once you get through the seemingly obligatory father son issues the move moves along at a good pace even with a very predictable. Plenty of gunfire, chase scenes and action. Overall a good 80's movie revved up a bit with better stunts, better special effects and quality cinematography. Yippee Ki-Yay

      This is by no means Die Hard 1 or 3, or even 2 or 4 for that matter lol, but it's still an entertaining movie and I always enjoy Bruce Willis action movies. I am glad they made it rated R, otherwise it would be getting two stars. The 4th installment of the Die Hard saga wasn't released with profanity, but you can purchase an unrated version in which you get to hear the classic, "Yippie Ki Yay, motha f*****. Although most of the action scenes/stunts that John McClaine and his son perform would kill just about any normal human in a real life circumstance, remember it is a movie and just meant to entertain.

      Well, I think they were trying to renew the series introducing McLane's son as "another Die hard guy", but It did not worked out in my opinion, specially the dad-son relationship arguments and so . But on the other hand, everything you could expect for a Die Hard movie is there, including all impossible to survive situations. If you like the series and do not care much for details (like being expose to insane radioactive levels and feeling ok) you will find at least entertaining, if you think it should "make sense" in all details this is not a movie for you.
