Sorry but this was not worth the money or the ime. I am a big Die Hard Fan I have seen all of the movies. Die Hard V was only 97 minutes long, did not have a good plot and was just two unrealistic. How can a 58 year old man fall 150' plus feet go thru a large glass window and end up in a pool of water all the while being shot at by a rapid fire air craft gun. Die Hard #1 was by far the best and the 3 that followed were not bad but his one not so good!

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.

with this super trend of 007 type of movies, die hard became really old and obsolete. it is really hard to believe... movies like 007, Jason Bourne, are closer to something real. The scenes are well done, sound is amazing (imax) but the history is bad...
