Review: A Good Day To Die Hard

PLOT:When John McClane’s son Jack is arrested in Russia, the detective gets on a plane in hopes to help his troubled son. Once he arrives he soon comes to the realization his his boy is a CIA operative looking to prevent a nuclear-weapons heist.  A Good Day To Die Hard is a 2013 American action film directed by John Moore and written by Skip Woods. The character was based on the protagonist of Nothing Lasts Forever by Roderick Thorp, it is the fifth installment in the Die Hard film series.

    I am a huge fan of the Die Hard Franchise and even owned the series at one point. With that being said this was definitely the weeakest film in the series in the sense that it greatly lacked substance. To put it bluntly It was 97 minutes of amped up thrills with little substance aside from things that go boom.  One thing that remained the same in this film is , John Mclane's tenacity- He is still the same New York Cop from the first movie that is hard to kill. In essence this film truly highlighted the chip that was already on his shoulder from previous films and basically makes him a superhero fighting bad guys under impossible odds.

The action in this film  is over-the-top with enormous car chases and countless vehicles being destroyed. In the final act, Willis and Courtney take the action to  the ruins of Chernobyl,  in one of the biggest and loudest action set pieces I’ve seen recently. There are a number of breath taking moments throughout  that helps the movie run its course quickly. The comedic nature of all of this tends to feel a little bit  beyond reality.Some may call the writing in this movie, a flat script but I would say that it does have some redeeming qualities if you like action packed, non stop, pop corn flicked films.

 Our Rating: 7.5 out of 10
