Thin plot strung together by big explosions

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.

Willis still has it when playing this role. i've enjoyed all of his previous Die Hard movies, and this one is no exception. He's still kicking ***as his character John.

Really fun - Amazing action!

I almost skipped A Good Day to Die Hard based on the horrible reviews. I almost missed out on an incredibly fun movie. I'm a big Die Hard fan, but I'm not easily bothered as the franchise continues to evolve. The plot is simple but sufficient to support the off-the-charts action, the dialog is a little weak, but what a fun ride! Don't miss this one on the big screen!

Critics what critics????

The critics that say this movie is bad are absurd... This is one of the best Die Hard Movies for one reason and one reason only...it was nonstop action at its best!!! The writing and dialogue might not have been as on point or dramatic as some of the previous movies however what I loved most about this was the fact that Bruce was John McClaine!! He was his character through the whole movie. Meaning that he felt familiar like an old friend his mannerisms his facial expressions everything was perfect..Jai I am not too familiar with but he played his role well..The film angles and screen tricks made the action look awesome hardly any spots where it looked like CGI or model work...Nothing was too over the top and it was never boring...The beginning of the movie was nonstop adrenaline and had me on the edge of my seat it seemed fluid and even though it was long I did not want it to end...Overall Movie I give it an A... One of the best action films of the year!

A Good Night

I love the Die Hard series and was excited to see this. It delivers with the action-packed awesomeness that keeps audiences coming back, but was a little more cheesy and a little less believable than the other DHs. I liked it, but I'm not desperate to see it in the theater again.
