this movie is like most "Die Hard" movies but isn't that what we want? it was worth going to see and I enjoyed the action. Bruce is Die Hard and now with a son in the action I see more coming. I will tell others to see it. I saw it in IMAX and am not sure that was worth it but I really enjoyed the movie.

Bruce Willis is still his wisecracking, one-liner dropping, tough as nails, John McClane self. The action is over the top and frenetic, and may over load the senses, but it is so formulaic that it feels dull. The car chase sequence is amazing, but the rest of the shot 'em up is so bland that you are just sitting there watching things blow up, waiting for the movie to end, and when it ends, it just ends. There is no real character development or explaining of motivations. Characters are barely introduced and then killed too quickly. The writing on this movie was so lazy that the only thing they could think of to make nuclear radiation magically disappear was a bunch of flashlights affixed to a crossbow with some smoke. There is a small amount of redeeming quality in the dynamic of the relationship with John and his son but that aspect is really just a device to get to the next action sequence. It was the most cliche and uninspired movie of the Die Hard franchise. Oddly I didn't hate it.

You don't go to this type of a movie to get an emotional warm fuzzy feeling out of it. You go to see things blow up and bad guys and (girls) get shot up. Bruce delivered. People that see this movie and complain that the character development wasn't nuanced or there was no connection to the audience, just don't get it. Don't be an idiot go see Les Mis. Granted this is a man's movie, but some women love manly men and thank God for those ladies that love us the masculine few. Well done Bruce, thank you for a 1.5 hour adrenaline rush.

My son and I are big into movies and this one was fun. Lots of great action, especially the IMAX effects. Decent plot, a couple of cool twists. Overall, good fun and enjoyable.
