Trivia

This was the first Die Hard film where the original script was explicitly written as an entry in the Die Hard series. The first Die Hard (1988) film was based on a novel by Roderick Thorp and a screenplay meant for Arnold Schwarzenegger as a sequel to Commando (1985). Die Hard 2 (1990) was first written as a script based on Walter Wager's novel '58 Minutes'. Die Hard: With a Vengeance (1995) famously took its basic idea from Jonathan Hensleigh's screenplay Simon Says. And Live Free or Die Hard (2007) was retro-fitted from the original screenplay WW3.com, which was nearly filmed on its own merits before the 9/11 terrorist attacks caused it to be shelved.

A Good Day To Die Hard is not so Die Hard
10 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

First off, I am a huge fan of the three first films, the fourth film was alright, but it didn't feel like a Die Hard movie, sadly, this one doesn't either.

A Good Day To Die Hard is a huge mess. No good plot, bad cgi, rushed scenes etc. Only thing I found good was the action. An R rating didn't help this one at all. It almost seems like they tried to make this PG-13 at first, but then changed it to R later because fans were complaining about Live Free or Die Hard's (Aka Die Hard 4.0)'s rating. The movie has PG-13 / 12A violence, and this is disappointing. John Moore could of done so much more with this film, but instead, he messes it up just like he did with Max Payne. Good action, but no good story or character development.

Jai Courtney (who starred in Jack Reacher earlier this year) did well on his part, and I do hope he returns if they are making a 6th one, but I am begging, please get a good director for the 6th one, since Bruce says it will possibly be the last one. Bring McTiernan back, and let him end the series with a huge bang! I am sorry to say this, but the film was not good at all. Being an hard-core Die Hard fan, I suggest that other fans should just let this one pass.
