There was a lot of action in the movie, which was entertaining. However, I didn't understand the storyline nor did I know what was going on and/or why. At one point, I had to ask myself, what's going on but was still entertained.

On the way out of the movie I turned to my friend and we both agreed there was NO plot. He asked me what it was about I told him it was about an hour and forty minutes. There was non-stop action; chase scenes, bang-bang shoot-em-up, vehicles and helicopters exploding. For some reason Bruce Willis' character was on "vacation" in Russia. His bad boy son turned out to be some type of CIA/Master spy dude. There was a good one moment and bad the next father/daughter team. For some reason everyone was trying to kill everyone else. It ended up in the city of Chernobyl. Why? I don't know. Writing this review was the best part of seeing this movie. If you love action and don' care about plot, rush out and see it now.

This was one fun movie. One of the best chase scenes. The vehicle chases and the helicoptor scenes were great. This is a must see movie. The way the two main carracters play off each other just adds to the fun. Get your popcorn and sit back and enjoy.

It really hurts to say "NO." I was so excited when I heard this movie was coming out. With regret, I must say that it is nothing like the first three...even the 4th. It's sad, really. This movie was quickly thrown together to make guaranteed $$$. I really wish they but more effort into the movie. This really sucks.

I love Die Hard. I watch it every Christmas no matter where I am or who I am with. "Ho, Ho, Ho". It has so many memorable moments and great character elements weaved into the plot, it stands out in the sea of generic action flicks that have come and gone throughout the ages. Sadly, the franchise hasn't been so lucky.
They don't give me enough space here to say what I really want to say about this movie and the franchise, but I'll just leave it at this: A Good Day to Die Hard is a bunch of big explosions tied together by weak and possibly even more unbelievable dialogue. It doesn't know if it wants to be a Jason Bourne spy movie or a more traditional Die Hard action movie. Sadly, it fails at both. Courtney Jai could preform some great hand-to-hand action scenes and I'm fairly sure Bruce could as well, but the action in this movie is delegated to waving machine guns around in the air and huge, ungodly explosions.
No memorable moments or dialogue, no redeeming qualities.
