Since the first Die Hard in 1988, John McClane has found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, with the skills and attitude to always be the last man standing, making him enemy #1 for terrorists the world over. Now, McClane faces his greatest challenge ever, this time on an international stage, when his estranged son Jack is caught up in the daring prison escape of a rogue Russian leader, and father and son McClane must work together to keep each other alive and keep the world safe for democracy.

TO VIEW THE B-RAY DISC!!!.
I was not able to try to watch this movie as soon as I received it. By the time I had a chance to play it and find out it would not work I was a day or so past Amazon's 30 day limit to return 'defective' items. I have now paid for a HD movie I can not look at and there seems to be no way I can get compensated for it. This is not the first time I have seen this problem. It also happened when I bought 'The Book Thief'. So far it seems to effect only 20th century Fox productions
This film made some leaps and assumptions that were hard for me to overlook since I specifically paid attention to the Russian elements and have basic geographical, cultural, and linguistic knowledge. But it wasn't terrible.
It goes something like this:
Sequel--> Yes/ No
If yes --> which director?
If no --> which director?
Why they handed this illustrious serious to such a d-grade director, it's anyone's guess. It's really critical to understand how this movie went wrong, really most if not all of the blame lies with Dir. John Moore.
Let's just say that John McClane was not a character in this movie. The guns were not even a character in this movie. I think there was some broken glass, if that helps make anyone feel better. I think the only thing that comes out of this movie better for the wear is mercedes, that G-wagon must be made of some kind of carbon fiber titanium ceramic let's take out a second mortgage MRAP.
Good: Bruce Willis is himself, although he kind of phones in the role; Lots of cars crushed by larger cars; Cool guns and helicopters; Moderately interesting plot twist.
Bad: John McClane's son, one of the heroes, is horribly unlikable, coming off as a whiny ingrate; None of the characters is ever really developed in any way, so you won't care what happens to them; Willis' character sets off to Russia to save his son from the Russian authorities, but spends the whole movie quipping "I was supposed to be on vacation." No you weren't! You were at best supposed to be there plotting strategy with lawyers and sitting through trial proceedings. At worst you were going to watch him go to prison. There was no expectation of vacation. It's a stupid line! Dialogue is canned and boring; one-liners could have been pulled from other movies, or maybe made up by the crew's kids.
Skip this movie and re-watch Die Hard I or II instead.
