As a big die hard fan I was expecting a good movie. Saddly the makers of this just didn't care and filmed enough footage to get to 90 min. The fact it was released in Feb (a dumping ground for movies in general) says something.
+ The much critised car chase is actually a lot of fun and is what the rest of the film should have been like
+ Only 90 or so mins
- The villans are really forgettable, which is amazing given Thomas Gabriel, Hans and Simon says in the early enstallments
-The plot starts out being faintly involving and then becomes incomprehensible
-The team up attempts to replicated the Sam Jackson-Willis one form 3 and falls largley flat
-The ending is weak and overblown on cgi. The last 30 mins or so are very dull
Also, I think a series can be classed as 'jump the shark' on the abroad or russian entry (see Rocky)
Extras: Two small trailers. Around 7 deleted scenes. Aviod all except one which is a rather lane fight but about the only one in the movie

I should be given a medal for sitting through the most boring film of 2013, from start to finish the whole experience was one brain numbing endurance test. Why even bother giving this the DIE HARD tag when, ever since the first two, they have effectively altered and ruined everything that made the first 2 films uniquely enjoyable. Why not go back to basics and have it set in one, confining location (skyscraper/airport etc) when its McClane going all over, indoors...outdoors its just another action pic. Why also have they insisted on teaming Willis upwith SIDEKICKS (younger guys), McClane is a classic LONEWOLF character surviving on his wits, if I wanted teamwork Id watch Lethal Weapon. The nail in the coffin is Willis himself....he clearly made no effort, his performance is abysmal and he might as well have worn a t-shirt saying IM BORED...JUST HERE FOR THE PAYCHEQUE.

Without giving too much of the plot away this film is worth watching. As just a film it is not bad at all. It has some good action sequences and is reasonably entertaining,
However as a Die Hard film it is weak. Easily the weakest of the Die Hard films. And although I would say it is worth watching I am not in a rush to see it again.
The usual format for Die Hard, the lone good guy beating scores of bad guys in a desperate situation is lost here. And although this film could be praised for having originality as a Die Hard film it doesn't feel like a Die Hard film. If it wasn't for the fact that the main character is the same we would not know that it was a Die Hard film.
The film is set in Russia and there are many scenes that rely on English subtitles to clarify the dialogue. This was something that I found irritating.
Much of the film is in the dark. Another pet hate of mine. What are producers trying to hide in dark poorly lit scenes?
There are some good action scenes but there is a much slower pace than previous Die Hard films. And the film is shorter than the earlier films. Although it was just the right length since actually the plot is also a bit thin.
Generally its worth watching once, but not a great Die Hard film.

Oh Brucie, why did you let them force you to make this tosh? We love the Die Hard movies, so much so that the first two are on our required Christmas film viewing list. The third and fourth in the series were daft, harmless, entertaining romps but this, McClane’s hopefully final escapade, is a bit of a stinker to say the least.

Despite the half-hearted efforts of the esteemed Mr. Willis, there was no way he could defeat the evil triumvirate of terrible scripting, laughable plotting and sloppy direction. Trying to make a Die Hard into a buddy movie was yet another mistake as was the dullest, longest, most pointless car chase in movie history. Ah, yes… to the plot. CIA deep-cover agent tries to get close to corrupt Russian politician in oligarch’s employ trying to steal nuclear material. Or something like that. It makes no sense at all, lots of stuff blows up, people get shot, stuff crashes and the English subtitles for the Russian dialogue aren’t on screen long enough to be read. Not that it really matters, you’re so busy drowning in a pool of drivel with your brains dribbling out of your ears that no amount of corny, trite dialogue could haul you to safety.

There is worrying talk of a sixth film. ‘Quit while you’re ahead’ (although it’s already a bit late for that) and ‘flogging a dead horse’ spring to mind. Please don’t do it… Leave us with memories of the good times at Nakatomi Plaza.

Oh how the mighty have fallen. One of the most iconic film franchises reduced to this. Let me explain why this film annoyed me so much.

The original Die Hard trilogy holds a special place in the hearts of most fans of action films. Back then (and it's much the same now) most action films had a lot of explosions, a lot of stunts and over the top scenes, but were a bit short on character and story. The Roger Moore Bond films are a key example of this. But then Die Hard came along, and we had a main hero who got hurt and who felt mortal. He wasn't a super spy, or a general in the army. He was just a man at the wrong place at the wrong time. That made him feel much more relatable than other action stars of the time.

That's all gone here. John McLane is now being thrown off helicopters without a scratch, having clips of heavy machine gun fire emptied at him with not one bullet coming close. I'm quite tempted to buy the DVD so I can watch the deleted scene where John gets injected with the Super Soldier serum. OK, so Die Hard has abandoned its roots. But is this still a good film?

NO! The script is absolutely terrible. If you drank one shot of vodka every time John McLane says "I'm on vacation" you would die of alcohol poisoning. You can't hear half the dialogue over all the music and explosions. In another film, that would be a bad thing. But since the script here is so terrible, and the acting is sub par (Bruce Willis does his best, but you can only do so much with this material), you're actually grateful for the bits you couldn't hear. And John McLane's son is an annoying whiny brat who never stops complaining about John not being there for him. Mind you, if John McLane was my father, I'd disown him - every time he shows up, terrorists appear.
