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.

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.

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

Not what my husband and I had thought it to be. Bruce Willis didn't seem to put his all into it. The plot was boring. The movie had sour humor. We only found 3 things they said through out the movie really funny. It had a terrible ending. This was a Valentines Night out and we ended up wishing we would have seen a different movie.. we are Die Hard fans, but this was the worse one made yet.

O.K. the other films in the series were a bit over the top but this one just was way beyond that. Falling off a tall building and getting up running? Being skewered by rebar, having it pulled out, and no side effects? Multiple car crashes and walking away. Falling from a helicopter, all in a days work. Being blown up by a bomb in the court house, no problem. And all the while not even being concerned that something bad might happen. Think of the Expendables where you are impervious to any bad things happening. This film did a dis-service to the series.
Also, the camera work was horrible. Another of those films where the camera is constantly moving to mimic action. It just upsets my stomach.
The writer for this film should not be allowed to work in Hollywood again. No character development, no good dialogue. Willis goes all the way to Moscow and within 15 minutes runs into his son, who is on an undercover mission for the CIA. WOW!
