This movie, as with the other Die Hards, is packed with action from beginning to end. Bruce Willis never disappoints and handles the more emotional parts of the plot with believable, tough guy sensitivity. There are a few twists which, if you are watching carefully, you will see coming. I wish the makers of the movie would have made it a bit longer to better develop the plot of the action part of the movie a bit better but they did develop it just enough to keep it fun and interesting. Using both moving (POV) and stationary cameras to convey the action, the movie kept you on the edge of your seat for most of the time. Willis is a master of controlled humor and emotion and filled the screen with that skill. Seeing it in IMAX made the action scenes even more enveloping. My husband and I left the theater feeling as though our time was well spent enjoying a good movie. On a 1-5 rating, I'd give it a 4.5 for fun, action and enjoyable.

Once this film got going it was non-stop action. There was no need for much dialouge since the bulletts were always flying and cars were wrecking. A good movie to see if you just want to sit back and enjoy.

The IMAX sound system made the explosions rumble in the theater but the rest was muddled. Had several times where I couldn't understand what was being said.
The movie is a good action movie but a poor Die Hard movie. Like most sequels it relies on viewers being familiar with the previous movies and doesn't bother to explain or make you care about the characters this time around.

It's just really sad that people decide they want to add to a memorable franchise with a movie that's slapped together poorly. I would honestly compare this piece of junk to Indiana Jones 4.. it's that bad. There are NO memberable scenes. No tense moments... I happened to glance at the critical reviews and the ones that Fandango is offering i completely agree with. I won't go into detail.. all you have to do is read the first couple sentences of the critical reviews offered here in Fandango and i'd have to say they're pretty much spot on. I am in my late thirties and grew up watching all the Die Hard movies and have always adored them as have my father and brothers. This movie was so bad however, that i even became annoyed with the main character believe it or not. I mean this is BAD in every way. no character development, horrible directing and camera editing, terrible pointless action sequences, bad dialogue, no real climax and you really never care about any of the characters BAD

I loved this movie, but I'm fanatical about the Die Hard franchise as it is. It wasn't perfect, but it was fun. I probably should have seen the twist at the end coming, but I truly didn't. Some of the father-son bonding scenes seemed a little awkward and out of place, but there really wasn't any good time to do those, so they had to go somewhere.
Anyway, there were lots and lots of explosions and I can never be upset about that.
