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.

Let me preface this review with the the statement that "I love Bruce Willis as an actor- I've followed him since his days on Moonlighting".The movie had plenty of action sequences, but it dragged in places. The initial car chase scene went on way too long. Plus, it didn't have a very good plot. I would have preferred to watch it on video, so that I could fast forward through some parts. The two male leads barely scratched the surface in resolving their relationship issues (and we never really found out why they were estranged in the first place), and it was all tied up neatly in a bow before the final action scene. Previous movies in the series were better and more entertaining. I would have walked out of the theater, but I paid over $10 to see this movie. Watch at your own peril!

So disappointed. Bruce Willis scripts were never great, but this was terrible. Car action scenes were way overdone and unrealistic. Diving through a plate glass window,crashing through 20 stories of scaffolding only to bounce up and find another readily available source of assault weapons and ammo. Let's go son...lets go shoot another 20 or so bad guys and then we'll share really bad dialect between each other until we can do it about five or six more times. Maybe then you will see me as a great loving dad and we can ride off into the sunset together. Don't even worry about watching it when it is out on Netflix....it' just that bad. Ps. I love John MacLaine but he is dead in my mind now!
