It is what it is and that is a action movie. Me and my 17 year old son went to the IMAX showing and were not disappointed. Full of action from start to finish.Some of the writing could have been better for me, But that didn't take away from my movie experience. My son loved the movie. Over all if you like a good action movie and I have always found Bruce Willis to make entertaining movies I recommend this movie.

Great chase scenes....interesting Moscow images....fantastic visuals....if you're gonna see it, must be in IMax....STUPID DIALOGUE!!!!
There must have been a writer's strike during the making of this movie...can't imagine that with all the money they spent making this, that they couldn't budget something for a real screenwriter!

"A Good Day to Die Hard" doesn't pretend to be something it isn't; this movie is an action, shoot 'em up, explosion movie. It's got the classic "Die Hard" comedy, this time being shared between father and son. Acting, directing, explosions and cinematography are great! This movie is definitely for the over 16 crowd. If you like the other "Die Hard" films, you'll like this one!

In light of the national debate on gun control, "A Good Day to Die Hard" makes a plausible case for every responsible homeowner to own a firearm to protect himself from corrupt government officials (and their beautiful, if equally corrupt daughters). While too late for consideration for this Sunday's Oscar ceremony, I found this latest Die Hard sequel to be a very entertaining, non-stop action thriller. I'll need to watch it again to determine if the total number of bullets fired exceeds the number of automobiles destroyed in the making of this film.
At the end of the end titles, there's a graphic declaring that this film supported 14,000 jobs. I'll hazard a guess and say most were Hungarian tow trick drivers, glass sweepers and squib fitters. It may not have had the wit, or even the plot line of the original, but it was two hours well spent in an expensive popcorn emporium.
