A "Good Day to Die Hard" is a recycled piece of Hollywood garbage. The director of this, (who is John Moore) ruined the Die Hard series and thinks that in order to make a great movie all you need is cool state of the art guns, action that goes on for way to long, no plot at all, and Bruce Willis, well he's good to go. Well he's very wrong, dead wrong.
The running time for this film is only an hour and a half but it feels like two or three hours. There is absolutely no plot and we have no idea who the main bad guy is or why Bruce Willis and his "son" are fighting them. All we really know is that John Mcclane wants a vacation and for Gods sake could we give him a little break? He's been fighting bad guys nonstop for 4 movies. But of course not.
Somehow we're led to believe he finds his son in the huge city of Moscow and wants to know how is day is. You know how it is usually, boring Dad stuff. But all of a sudden bad guys start shooting them out of nowhere, oh there's also this really old guy who we have no idea why he is with them.
The only little grasp of a plot we get is that Mcclane and his son must protect that old man but they manage to do it pretty easily, and while there dodging huge bullets from a helicopter and many men shooting at them they have a little father son time to themselves where there actually having fun shooting people and dodging bullets . I mean really who woulden't have fun doing that. What a great way to have fun with your son who you haven't seen in years for some reason.
The director wanted this one to be a little comical, but it just drags the movie on even more, Bruce Willis's one liners are horrible and we can barely even hear them and even his one famous line was said at a horrible time, with not much effort, and why may I ask do they always make Bruce Willis invincible in almost every movie, I know people may disagree but he is just getting to old to do movies anymore.
Die Hard was when he was in his prime and that's what made the movie an instant classic. A Good Day to Die Hard is boring, outdated and simply terrible. Die Hard fans, (like me) will be very disappointed.
