supposed to be in Russia, but did you see one Lada or Moscovich?

I was actually looking forward to this movie since the last one was surprisingly good. However, this new installment was utterly stupid, mindless, predictable, and a good day to forget this movie was ever made. Wow, can the writing be any worse, can the cinematography be any amateurish and embarrassing, can acting be any corny and cartoonish, and can the directing be any sophomoric and incompetent? The answer is F en YES! I give it an F-.

Jenny Sloan, no offense meant to you at all, but the "Die Hard" franchise wasn't always JUST silly and campy. The original 1988 movie in particular did a great job of connecting the audience emotionally to the McClane character and his plight. He wasn't a "superhero" type of action hero. He was a real person, with real-life problems, and you truly were given the sense that he was in grave danger the entire movie. You really felt like he may not make it out of there alive.
The second movie was more like the new one, detached from what made the first movie so good. When the original director John McTiernan came back for the third movie, the quality picked up again. The fourth one we all know about, with its PG-13 softness and such, and the current one is just in a league of its own in terms of disaster.
I'll give it to you that no "Die Hard" movie would be considered as "art," but in the action/thriller genre the first movie is one of the best ever made. Everything since then has been a mixed bag.

You're pretty generous with the D+. A Good Day to Die Hard is sadly one of the worst movies in memory. The only fun to be had was in mocking it.

Wow! What a surprise! Yet another shitty Die Hard sequel. And released in mid February no less.

Incredibly disappointing. Bruce should be embarassed to have been involved in this.
Absolutely no story

You are right.This was as fun as a chainsaw colonoscopy.

Don't care I am still going to watch it. Die Hard is silly, campy, bloody and not even close to art. Just straight up fun. I do love your reviews. If you say it's good then it's good and vice versa.
Take it easy,
