If you are a Die Hard franchise fan then this is a must see. Didn't waste time with a lot of back story; straight to the action and straight to classic John McClane. My one big stickler for the film was the length of the film itself, but as always, this is a Die Hard film with BIG action, BIG stunts, BIG comedy courtesy of Bruce Willis in his iconic character, and it finds ways to pay homage to the last 25 years of Die Hard without being corny. Forget what the critics say and go enjoy this movie.

Better than expected! This movies serves up the action in a big way! If you need a dose of testosterone, then look no further.
A Good Day to Die Hard, has a shallow plot, but makes the best of it with decent plot twists. The acting is also decent. What's evident is that Bruce Willis still has it. His acting was head and shoulders above Jai Courtney's. It seems that the Tom Cruises and Bruce WIllises of Hollywood still have a place until the younger guys can match their acting ability and athleticism.
This movie is no Casino Royale, but it will get your blood flowing. Just don't analyze plot points too hard and you will enjoy yourself.
If you like my reviews, add me as a fan. I'll add you back!

I liked the movie, didn't care for the subtitles throughout. Non-stop action from the beginning to the end but the story line was not as interesting as the previous Die Hard movies. I am a Bruce Willis fan and love all of the other Die Hard movies. There was a scene with an oops - his T-shirt is full of burn holes from flying debris, next scene it was almost a new T-shirt, and then the next scene there were burn holes just on the side. The IMAX version booms throughout the movie so you feel the explosions, of which there is no shortage. Overall good movie, just a little light on the depth. Definitely worth seeing at the theatre for that deep, booming surround sound.

As a huge fan of the first four installments in the Die Hard series, I am sorry to say that the fifth movie just does not cut it. It has some incredible action sequences to be sure, but the plot is paper thin and the cast around Willis was unimpressive. Sub-par at best, I was very disappointed.

Sorry, the movie sucked. Paid $26 bucks to take me & my girlfriend on ValentinesDay. I am the biggest Die Hard fan, but this was just Bruce collecting a pay check. Don't have the time to go into details, but PLEASE don't waste your money on this flick. Read the reviews. 'Nuff said"
