The reason why the first Die Hard was so good was that Bruce Willis back in the day had a good sense of humor and it was BELIEVABLE that he could survive the situations he was in.
This movie was like watching a video game - zero plot development and there wasn't remotely a chance that the characters would have survived any of the exchanges of gunfire, explosions, or helicopter crashes.
I too fell asleep half way through, didn't feel like I missed anything. Zero Dark Thirty? I was on the edge of my seat for three hours.

If you have ever seen a Die Hard movie you know what to expect. John McClaine gets into another action packed adventure and this time he's with his son. All the snarky one-liners, catchphrases, explosions and crazy car chases are packed in to this father/son bonding experience. If you enjoy a good old fashioned action flick this is for you.

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.

First I want to say that I am a big fan of Die Hard series and when I first heard that they are making a new Die Hard, I was excited! After seeing this film, I left dissatisfied.
Not only it does not feel like a Die Hard, its also not a very good film. The plot SUCKS, the villains are NOT memorable, acting is so-so but 90% of this movie is all shooting and explosions so you can't get a connection with the main characters, AND THE WORST PART OF THIS MOVIE IS THE YIPPE-KAI-YAYMOTHER F***KER WAS NOT EPIC AT ALL! This is the worst Die Hard in this series; yes, even Live Free or Die Hard is even better then this. The only thing that it says it from giving it a OH NO is the action, its average; its alright but its going to sound weird but its way too much.
If you are a Die Hard fan, you will be disappointed! For everyone else, you might or might not like it, I would say to just rant it: you are not missing anything that is a must see. I give a high NO, very close to a SO-SO.
