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.

I took my best friend to see this as this is what she wanted for her birthday. It was an enjoyable experience and the first time that we seen a movie in IMAX

If you like mindless action with not much plot this is a must go movie for you. The action doesnt stop but the plot has holes large enough you could drive an 18 wheeler through and still have plenty of room to spare. Wait for the Bluray.
