Just not what I was expecting out of a Die Hard movie.
Kitty
There is no shortage of explosions, car crashes, and gun fights but that will not carry a dull show.
Tom Barnett
I have watched the first 4 at least 5 times each, have a friend I give movies like this.

This is a difficult film to review.

Die Hard 5 is not going to please you if you are hoping for a film like the first Die Hard: underdog good cop in a situation over his head struggling to make things turn out right while the government/cops etc. try to to handle the situation.

The GOOD:

This film is an excellent action movie with a couple of ridiculous scenes--like the transition from bridge to road below, or from chopper to roof, etc. You'll understand. The action is incredible and beautifully shot. The car chase alone is a new experience, the way the bystanders and cars get tossed about. It's unlike any chase scene I can remember. The only disturbing part is how many innocents John must have killed! lol. His son has a few cool CIA gadgets. There are a few nice plot twists. On it's own, the film is a fun ride, fun to watch, thrills unfolding in a novel way.

But . . . it is not Die Hard. It is a weak reflection of the series we adore. Here's why:

1) The beginning is slow, with John literally standing around while his son does his thing. I don't EVER want to see my beloved John McClane loafing around like a lost puppy! What a lame moment. He keeps calling his son's name and truly resembles a lost old man.

2) John actually whines throughout the movie. What is that about?

During the chase he is talking to himself and most of the lines are lame.

Throughout the movie he complains that he is "on vacation." When did this turn into an intended vacation? It was NEVER a vacation! He went there to help his son!

He says "Jesus Christ!" more than a crazed Baptist minister on Sunday. I was actually guessing when he would say it again and laughing.

3) John's son sucks. Why am I watching his son?

I agree with other reviewers who are wondering where all the bad reviews are coming from! It's a DIE HARD movie so you know exactly what you are going to get when you pay your money at the box office. If you are a DIE HARD fan, this movie gives you exactly what you are expecting... ridiculously crazy action. No way John McClane can survive another bad situation - but you know he will because it's John McClane and you can't wait to find out how bad he gets beat up in the process. If you don't like this kind of action, don't watch it, but for what it is supposed to be, this is a good movie!

Yes, John McClane is back. That's good, except this particular outing is not exactly the best of the quintet. In fact, at best it probably ranks somewhere around the fourth or fifth of the bunch. The franchise is getting lazy. REALLY lazy, but more on that in a minute.

On the flip side, you probably didn't come to this one to think, anyway.

This time McClane is in Russia: his estranged son Jack (Jai Courtney) has turned up in Moscow, charged with murder, and he's copping a plea deal by testifying against a highly popular political prisoner whose trial could bring down a (need I say it?) corrupt high-ranking Russian official.

But as always, there are complications. As the commercials tell you, his son is a CIA spy, deep undercover, and the only thing about him that's real is his deep-seated anger at his father. Regardless, John flies out to Moscow (filled in for nicely by shots of Budapest, Hungary).

Given the immensity of the case against the dissident, that John and Jack will even see each other would be problematical; that they would meet would seem impossible. But of course the impossible comes true, and the pair go around Russia shooting up everything.

That any of this makes sense is utterly beside the point. For instance, there is practically no interference by the Russian police; at no time during any of the many over-the-top sequences do any of the cops seem to be anywhere in the picture...during helicopter shootouts and battles on rooftops, there is no sign of the local constabulary. But then again, Russia's known to be a pretty free-and-easy laid-back country, isn't it? So this would make sense.

A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD (2013) is a total mess that was a waste of time and money for me as a renter and for the producers as a legacy.

Soundtrack music under action scenes is lousy. A lengthy vehicle chase sequence through the congested streets of Moscow is clearly a CGI cartoon. It and the various shootout scenes are BORING. Worst is the plot: John McLane (Bruce Willis), who throughout the movie says he's in Russia on vacation, falls into a lot of trouble when he helps out his son, a CIA spook. "Jack" John McLane Jr. (Jai Courtney) persistently calls his dad by his Christian name. You KNOW that'll change by the fadeout.

The plot is confusing, subtitle translations of Russian are too small and disappear too fast. The story's a miasma of cross double-cross that's too tedious to sort out. Best thing about it is a new Rolling Stones song heard during the credit scroll. Amazing that Mick Jagger at nearly 70 can still rock hard.

But that's just not enough. Avoid this one at all costs, unless you care to witness the sad demise of a great action movie series.
