Love the Die Hard series and this one didn't let us down. It has more human interest, father and son "bonding", to go with non-stop action.

After thoroughly enjoying "Live Free or Die Hard" I was very excited to see "A Good Day to Die Hard". Sadly that excitement was long gone by the time the credits began to roll. The action is big and lout, (which of me is a plus), but pretty ridiculously unbelievable....even for an action flick. The witty/biting running commentary usually provided when John McLain is on his own battling the bad guys was essentially missing from this movie unless you consider hearing "I'm on vacation" several times funny. (Reminds me of Clerks when he says "I'm not even supposed to be here today...")
Anyway, the action is big, exciting, and unbelievable, and the story is mediocre at best. At only 1:38 long, it's almost 45 minutes shorter than the last one, but in this case, that is a good thing as there isn't enough story to make it any longer. Even at just over 90 minutes, the scenes without action seem to drag at times. See it for the explosions, but don't expect anything else.

It's a Die Hard movie, for Pete's sake! You go to these movies with the intent of being entertained with a lot of swagger, destruction and pay-back satisfaction. This one did not disappoint in any of those categories. Jai Courtney made a plausible "son" to Bruce's John McClane. (I don't know why the daughter McClane even made an appearance.) We had a lot of fun watching the mayhem and plot twists. And in IMAX, you were in the thick of it all!

Excellent, a roller coaster of action, very intensifying and gritty, it absorbs you into it, we wished it had lasted longer, it left us wanting more even though it ended well. It was worth seeing on IMAX.
