'A Good Day To Die Hard' Proves Willis Should Have Stopped At #4 (video)
Bruce Willis reprises his ioconic role as police detective John McClane in 'A Good Day To Die Hard' directed by John Moore ('Max Payne') and written by Skip Woods ('A Team') and Jason Keller.
VIDEO McClane this time around, finds himself in Moscow. Seems his estranged son, Jack (Jai Courtney) has been arrested for murder. McClane isn't at all surprise. He believes Jack is a total screw-up. In truth (and this isn't a SPOILER) Jack is a CIA operative trying to protect a government whistleblower, Komarov (Sebastian Koch) from being killed. Anyway, before father and son can hook up, they're involved in an over the top car case through the streets of Moscow that lasts around ten minutes (It felt like ten hours) After that's over, the two men, spend some time yelling at each other, followed by a few moments of male bonding, as they try to protect Komarov Russian bad guys. And there's lots bad guys. There's also lots of shoot outs, fights, a little torture and more car chases. Get the picture... I really wanted to love this film or at least be entertained, but unfortunately neither one of those things happened. 'A Good Day To Die Hard' has what you'd expect from an action film...It has action. What it doesn't have is a good script and well defined characters. You don't care about anyone. Bruce Willis is always fun to watch, but even he couldn't save this film from being nothing more than two hours of non stop, excessive violence, with a twist you could see coming a mile away. It's for those reasons I gave 'A Good Day To Die Hard' 21/2 bagels out of 5. The film opens on Valentines Day, Thursday February 14, 2012. If you're planning on having a romantic evening, this is definitely NOT the movie to see. Check out our video to find out John's score and for more of our witty banter.

More A Good Day to Die Hard (2013 f... reviews
I am very fond of the first two “Die Hard” films. They marked a change in the 80’s action hero, because it featured a very ordinary cop named John McClane who was a cowboy, tough as nails gutsy, and resourceful when it comes to getting out of a jam. They made the catch phrase “look who’s at the right place at the wrong time” mean something. The third film “Die Hard with a Vengeance” was a little on the mixed bag, it became an odd mix of a buddy film …
Always a fan of the Die Hard franchise despite the weaknesses of the last two recent sequels--Yippee-Ki-Yay on Velentine's Day!! See Full review here.
