I saw it in IMax, and it was the best way to see it to get the full effect from all the action and special effects.. The car crashes were spectacular! Well, like "Live Free or Die Hard", it had one of McClain's children in it. This time it was his son instead of his daughter, which we should have seen coming. It was inevitable, I guess. The big question is will they use his son to reboot the franchise. Bottom line, if you like the Die Hard franchise, you'll love this one.

Yes it's an aging franchise, but the latest installment delivers on the action in a new setting in Russia. The plot has some weak spots, and the number of multi-story falls that the heros walk away from is unbelievable, but the action doesn't stop, and the stunts are great. (I also now know what my next car will be for driving in city traffic..)

The action scenes, the chases, were great. The plot was thin- barely able to string together the action- and it wasn't believeable, even by Die Hard standards. Bruce is looking a little old (he didn't in the last one.) The supporting cast could have been better, but they were OK. Imax didn't contribute much to the experience. It was good during the car chases, but generally didn't add much- and it wasn't kind to Bruce at all. I'm glad that I saw it, but it closed the book on the Die Hard series for me.

Took my husband to see this movie in I MAX on Valentine's Day and it was the best idea ever! We both loved this movie and you guys should definitely go see it. No regrets.

How old is John McClain? He's been shot, stabbed, blown up, cut to ribbons, beaten half to death, and nearly nuked on multiple continents, and not only is he fit as a fiddle, he's still got a job with the NYPD. In the last movie, he had to make amends with his estranged daughter. In this movie, he has to make amends with his estranged son. In Die Hard Six, he'll have to make amends with his household pets. The movie had it's moments; McClain was funnier than I remember from the previous films and the gun play and explosions were good. None of it was good enough to justify IMAX charging $32 for two tickets in sad old Buffalo, NY. It's not like this was some cinematic masterpiece. Wait for the video.
