John McLane finds himself in Russia after his estranged son gets caught up in a prison escape of a rogue Russian leader. Now the two will have to work together not just to survive, but once again ensure the safety of the world. this is by far the worst die hard movie yet I mean the action is awful and the CGI looks like sh't and the Directing is poor.

If you removed the movie's title and the McLane name, then you wouldn't know this was part of the 'Die Hard' series. It's slapped together with poor writing and execution. The action is over-the-top to cartoon level, complete with obvious green screen and slo-mo inhuman feats. Because of this, it ends up a surprisingly tame R-rated endeavor. 'A Good Day to Die Hard' is a severely stupid, lame, and boring watch. The biggest cinematic letdown of the entire year.

very poor movie. boring unoriginal script thats been done before, unrealistic wooden performances. awful story and dialogue. and terrable music throughout like some 80's movie. seriously who wrote this film there's not a second of anything original in it. looks like it was made purely for the money. a far cry from the original and even the last 3

John McClane travels to Russia for the trial of his son who is charged with attempted murder and is caught up in a feud between shadowy figures in the Russian establishment with a past in organised crime.
Despite its less than lukewarm reception, Die Hard 4.0 wasn’t a total disaster; I actually thought it started rather well but faltered thanks to its increasing over-reliance on preposterously bone-headed action set pieces. The fifth instalment begins with preposterously bone-headed action set pieces and goes downhill from there. That’s not to say that this is a terrible film; the action is efficient enough and it never bores, but there is no chemistry between the stars and Bruce Willis’ charisma is never allowed to shine as the dumbed-down script completely lacks the humour and …

A Good Day to Die Hard, the latest in the multi-million dollar series, is a deceptive film. It’s opening five or so minutes, which see multiple plot threads being set up with Nolanesque aplomb, seduce you into letting your guard down… which is when the film’s putrid awfulness strikes.
But what is this awfulness? Well, it’s not the meagre script, nor is it Bruce Willis’ disinterested performance, nor is it the absence of any remotely interesting or intimidating villains, nor is it the fact that this film turns Willis into a bloody sidekick – because obviously the producers thought that what the public wanted to see from in the next Die Hard film is John McClane being made to look a useless twat by his punk kid – no, it’s simply the cinematography. Oh, the …

Bruce Willis… What happened?
I address Willis here, because he could have stopped pretty much everything. How anyone else on set didn't say: 'Stop! This is terrible!' is beyond me, because all I can feel right now is absolute anger and disappointment. A Good Day To Die Hard is the worst entry into an otherwise solid franchise, and I hope they make a sixth, because they just can't leave it like this.
This director is a fu*king dumb-a*s, I'm sorry, I just had to curse at this mockery of a decision to institute John Moore as director for a Die Hard movie. What a laugh. Just because you have eye-soaring lens flare in the background doesn't mean you are a creative director Moore!
Lengthy scenes with poor dialogue are often filmed in terrible lighting as well as unnecessary shaky-cam. …

Happy Valentines Day to me. Sorry honey but this is looking like another great Bruce Willis Die Hard movie. I have been following the making of this for about a year and with A Good Day to Die Hard only a week away I am very excited. The special effects look eye popping and for a guy who is always in the wrong place at the wrong time he always to save the world in the end. As always it is worth the price of admission to hear him say "Yippee Kay Yay Mother &amp;#~!^$"

I expect it to make a good box office return. &nbsp;Maybe even be #1 in it's release weekend. &nbsp;I'll see it just for the sake of completion.

Considering the low takes for The Last Stand, Parker and now Bullet to the Head (all starring fellow Expendables 2 cast mates), I don't know what to expect for grosses from the next Die Hard film. However, this is an established franchise (and they pumped it back up to an R), so I'm thinking it's not going to fare as badly. Action films have been taking a beating at the box office, but there is a good chance this will be the first 2013 film I will be watching in the theaters. Here's hoping it …
