About the Movie
Bruce Willis is back in action — mind-blowing, heart-stopping, rip-roaring action — as John McClane, the heroic New York cop with a knack for being in the wrong place at the right time. John’s latest predicament takes him all the way to Russia to track down his estranged son, Jack (Jai Courtney), who has been imprisoned in Moscow. But the mission takes a deadly turn as father and son must join forces to thwart a nuclear weapons heist that could trigger World War III!

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: If there's something crassly opportunistic about exploiting a real life disaster on the scale of Chernobyl for cheap thrills, that's part and parcel of the film's cynicism.
Rotten: This is the Magpie School of action filmmaking: Anytime things start to make so little sense that you might lose the audience, just throw something shiny up on screen to distract.
Rotten: For anyone who remembers the "Die Hard" adventures at their vital and exciting best, this film feels like a near-death experience.
Rotten: I guess the people making A Good Day to Die Hard don't understand that mortality is one of John McClane's most endearing qualities. Turning him into a cyborg with a sense of self-deprecating humor makes this a low point in the series' history.
A Good Day to Die Hard Was Great.
Okey to be fair the Fifth films got a bad review and it's one of a worst sequel since Batman & Robin and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen but I don't care I enjoy this Kick-A** films.
The Action Sequence was awesome, The dialogue was good but okey and the characters John McClane, Jr. was not bad.
Sure the films got back the Rated R and it's was only 97 Minutes of this films.
Well I don't care about the critic I still enjoy it's was a lot of fun.
I give it's 4 1/2 stars out of 5. Go see It's you're won't be sorry.
Walked out of the theatre...
I loved this series, but this movie is hopeless... but if Bruce needs the money...whatever...
Absolute let down of a sequel. From the terrible set up to the unrealistic action scenes; this film is a mistake. Yes it is a good time action type film, but that's not what Die Hard was brought up to be. They've always been serious in making a legit four star film. Now it's cheesy, lacks a set up, and Bruce Willis has changed the character John McClane to the point where it's not even him. The film forgot the purpose of why John does this. In this it was like watching someone do a parody of Die Hard, but if that was the point then i'd give it three stars. After seeing this I think Bruce Willis needs to give this gig up. There are so many things that this movie has that doesn't connect to the other films in the collection. Like the fact that John McClane suddenly has a son, and this son is in his twenties in the C.I.A. The fact of the matter is that their streak has been broken.
This let down starts with John McClane (Bruce Willis) finding out that his son Jack McClane (Jai Courtney) has been arrested in Moscow. John flies out to Moscow and finds that Jack is in the C.I.A and has escaped jail with Yuri Komarov (Sebastian Koch) who was in jail with him. Jack needs Yuri for what he knows about secret files. John pretty much follows his son and gives him a helping hand when he needs it. As the climax approaches things are revealed ending in an action packed battle.
This film really looked like they just needed another idea for a film to make money. This franchise is no longer sustainable when it comes to the ratings of the film, but money wise they're doing fine. I really just look at this as a useless sequel. The definition of die hard is to go on for to long. The name of the collection defines the collection.
