A Bad Day to View This Film!

  • Jul 5, 2013
Rating:
-1
The last Die Hard film with Justin Long was an exciting and fun ride. As good as that film was, this film is simply putrid. Thankfully this film was less than two hours long and that is the only good thing I can say about it. This film is dominated by action scenes and car chases where only the director has a clue as to what is occurring on the screen. As a viewer, most of the time I could not figure out was happening.

John McClain goes to Russia to look for his son. There is a trial going on in the courthouse in Moscow where he is going. The movie just goes downhill from there as there are massive explosions and the guy that is to testify in the trial against a guy named Yuri, helps Yuri escape. McClain gets into the middle of it and the guy helping Yuri turns out to be McClain's son, working for the CIA to extricate Yuri. Somehow McClain messes up the escape plan and then he has to save his son and Yuri and get them to a safe house. The bad guys find them there almost immediately and the movie just continues to get worse.

The director later tried to steal the scene from the first film where the villain slowly falls from a window. It absolutely doesn't work in this mishmash that will just have you shaking your head. Save your money and just watch one of the first four films instead!

A Good Day to Stop Making These Sequels
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 …

200 Words or Less: How Far Has McClane Fallen?       Oh, look how far we’ve come from the 1988 original!  John McClane (Bruce Willis) is still battling terrorists, but this time he’s a kinder, gentler McClane hoping to reconcile with his bitter son.  (Didn’t he just play Daddy Dearest in the last film?)  It just so happens his son is a CIA operative on assignment in the former Soviet Union.  Go figure.  Moscow goes bang!  Like …
