Better than expected! This movies serves up the action in a big way! If you need a dose of testosterone, then look no further.
A Good Day to Die Hard, has a shallow plot, but makes the best of it with decent plot twists. The acting is also decent. What's evident is that Bruce Willis still has it. His acting was head and shoulders above Jai Courtney's. It seems that the Tom Cruises and Bruce WIllises of Hollywood still have a place until the younger guys can match their acting ability and athleticism.
This movie is no Casino Royale, but it will get your blood flowing. Just don't analyze plot points too hard and you will enjoy yourself.
If you like my reviews, add me as a fan. I'll add you back!

I went to this movie wanting to like it but it lacks the humor of the previous movies as well as a memorable villain. The reason I gave it a so so and not a no is that it is an action movie and there is plenty of it. But the little to no plot, one dimensional characters, lack of subtitles during Russian speaking scenes, and lack of humor left me feeling unfulfilled. Save the 13 bucks and rent it.

Very few movies give you the audience the chance to have your own "open mike" Mystery Science Theater 3000 session on them. Luckily, A Good Day to Die Hard give you that opportunity. This is a truly dreadful movie even by the diminished standards of action flicks (Die Hard is still my all time favorite Christmas movie). Where it's the director's addiction to slow motion shots, the dialogue consisting entirely of bumper sticker slogans and puns that make Arnie's look tastefully done....this film is the swan song of this series. As it should since it was never really necessary. I saw practically no one in the theatre (if you've ever been to a 10:00 am showing, picture that) and I think this movie's failure may stemm hollywood's sequel/remake addiction.

I love Bruce! And yes he still has it! So it is a good Die Hard - not so sure about the plot - yet it is hard to not like the role of John - and yes it was a good relationship builder with his son - always a plus!

I'm a Die Hard / Bruce Willis fan, seen them all, from the beginning
many moons ago but this one is not up to snuff. I'll give Bruce
another chance in the new GI Joe out soon. Basically this one
