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.


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?

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.

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!

This is specifically about the Extended Cut version of A Good Day to Die Hard. I give it 4 out of 5 stars, it was good. After watching the theatrical release of DH5 I was very disappointed, someone edited down that cut of the film who either was new to their job, or actively doesn't like the DH fans. They butchered it.

This extended cut version adds back in everything I was looking for in a good Die Hard movie. The yippee-kay-yay is back! How can you release a Die Hard Movie without the main John McClane insult to his opponents? This cut also has more character development, who is Jack McClane besides the 2 dimensional son of John McClane? The action starts to make sense, to flow with the whole story.

The theatrical release was a waste of my ticket, this extended cut version was worth every penny. Buy it if you love Die Hard.

Will this Die Hard franchise please just go away? The original was, and is, a classic; each succeeding Die Hard film merely ratchets up the suspension of disbelief with outrageous stories, unbelievable villains, and protagonist John McClane becoming a virtual cartoon character as he overcomes impossible, death-defying predicaments.

Enter the latest burnt toast offering: A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD. Here we have Bruce Willis's McClane heading for Russia to supposedly go to the aid of his estranged son, Jack (a bored looking Jai Courtney), who is on Death Row. But there's a twist: Jack is actually an undercover CIA operative, and he's feverishly working to get a political prisoner (Sebastian Koch) out of the country--a prisoner who can finger the head of the Russian mob. Predictably there are sudden twists and turns as to whom the actual villain is, and as this turkey limps to its Herculean over-the-top ending (here's a hint: a bobtail truck taking down a military helicopter), John and Jack are put through the paces by director John Moore, who has them plunging out of windows and through scaffolding and into dumpsters and most-convenient pools of murky water. We even have our heroes journey to Chernobyl and endure that stifling radioactive environment sans protective gear. Obviously the McClanes are invincible to serious injury; but they are susceptible to making silly movies.

Bruce Willis looks old and tired, and has nada chemistry with Courtney. The plot, the pacing, are lame pizza supreme, with a contrived, sappy ending thrown in allegedly to make us feel good. A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD is a tedious, 98-minute mental exercise to force the viewer to conclude it is really a good day to end the Die Hard franchise.
