A Good Day to Die Hard felt more like a true Die Hard than Live Free or Die Hard, so that's one positive right off the bat. This series has never been about character development, it's about heavy action, light comedy, and just enough of a mystery to hold it together. Good Day delivers on all those points. Willis's McClane ages well for the role, as simply an everyday cop with excellent common sense who is extremely hard to kill. The chemistry he has with his character's son is believable enough for an action movie.
Don't expect an Oscar contender, this is just a fun movie.

If you are a fan of Bruce Willis or the Die Hard series you should go see this movie. It has a so-so story line but the action is there.

This movie is nothing like the previous Die Hard movies. No plot, It's too bad Hollywood has lost it's creative writing talent and just pumps out movies like this, relying on star power and past movies to rope movie goers into wasting their money

When did NY Cop John McClaine become a super agent who can dodge bullets and survive falling off of buildings?
This entry has taken the implausible story of Die Hard and exploded it to the completely impossible.
At the least this is an entertaining action film, which may have worked better if Willis was playing Jack Ryan and his son was playing Jack Ryan, Jr working for the CIA. Then maybe some of the stunts could be explainable. As a Die Hard movie, this fails.
Die Hard 4 was also over the top and didn't work as well as Die Hard 3, but this entry takes things to a whole new level of ridiculousness.

I've always enjoyed the Die-Hard films, especially the No. 4 (with Justin Long), but this one was kind of blah. Had potential, but I was disappointed. The chemistry between McCane and his son just never really worked. Intense action sequences but no real heart. The film is entertaining, but I would advise people to just watch it when it comes out on Netflix. The most charming scene was right at the beginning with McCane and the cab driver. After that, I just never connected with John's character and his son.
The acting is good, the cinematography is great, but the story line is a bit unbelievable.
Not a kids movie, lot's of violence and lot's of f-bombs.
