The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

By Rick Groen
Far more than most action stars getting on in years, Bruce Willis has aged nicely into the role. Maybe it’s that shaved pate of his, a bullet-head that still looks primed for any chamber.

Philadelphia Inquirer

For all its mayhem, for all the smashing windows and kabooming fireballs, the grenade launchers and giant helicopters, A Good Day to Die Hard not only fails to top its predecessors, it also forgets the basic Die Hard rules.

Entertainment Weekly

By Lisa Schwarzbaum
In the way of workaday flicks built around long-in-the-tooth badasses, Die Hard 5 leaves room for McClane to make a few jokes about his thinning hair and to rue that he wasn't a better father when his kids were growing up. Oh, boo-hoo.

There are two problems with A Good Day to Die Hard: It’s terribly filmed and nothing in it makes any sense.

The best thing about A Good Day to Die Hard is its title.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Todd McCarthy
Unfortunately, John Moore has directed these sequences in a way that makes the incidents look so far-fetched and essentially unsurvivable that you can only laugh.

San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
It has a weak story that provides no tension, feeling or interest. Its opening action sequence is just a long, drawn-out dud, filmed by director John Moore in the worst modern style of quick cuts and smeary, jittery photography.

Rolling Stone

By Peter Travers
Ah jeez. I actually wanted this one to be good. Or at least decent. Or at least a reminder of what got us all fired up about the first Die Hard in 1988. But A Good Day To Die Hard, the fifth in a creatively exhausted series, is total crap.

New York Daily News

By Joe Neumaier
Ultimately, even more than 2007’s “Live Free or Die Hard,” “Good Day” never lets McClane be McClane. Gone is his taunting snark and quick-witted preparedness; instead he seems like a jerk with a thing for guns.

Wall Street Journal

By Joe Morgenstern
For anyone who remembers the "Die Hard" adventures at their vital and exciting best, this film feels like a near-death experience.
