"A Good Day to Die Hard," the fifth film in the "Die Hard" franchise, is a "kind of ageist tryptic." Those were the words of star Bruce Willis back in October of last year when we asked him about once again playing "Die Hard" hero cop John McClane. "How fast can I run? How well can I fight?" Willis rhetorically asked. "There's a story. If you look at all of them from the first film to the one we just did, you see me age over these films."
He's right. Bruce Willis, now 57, isn't the youthful 32-year-old, yippee-ki-yay-yelling action star he was in 1988. (It should come as little surprise, however, that Willis' now-patented yippe-ki-yay taunt does appear in "A Good Day To Die Hard.") Perhaps this is why the newest "Die Hard" film introduces audiences to a brand new McClane -- John McClane Jr., played by Jai Courtney.
