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.

I'm a massive fan of the Die Hard series, so I was more than ready to watch this film through rose-tinted glasses, but alas, even for a dedicated fan this movie is beyond terrible. Abysmal film making is on show and even after reading the bad reviews I still failed to adequately prepare myself for it.

Director, John Moore appears to have no knowledge of the Die Hard franchise, or movies in general, and creates a sloppy mess that unintentionally parodies the action genre. Nothing in this film makes sense and the action scenes lack pacing, tension, and impact. It seems that John Moore simply doesn't know how to direct. Every scene falls flat. I'm shocked that this film was released. Although, it still managed to pull in three times its budget at the box office, so fan loyalty has carried this limping atrocity an extremely long way. What a slap in the face!

The script (penned by Skip Woods) is atrocious and consists of water thin dialogue with almost zero character development. I didn't care what was happening. I was given no reason to. This might as well have been a terrible TV episode of any silly action series that you would find channel surfing at 2am on a Sunday. This is John McClane for crying out loud!! But you you wouldn't know it. McClane has gone from being a cocky but likeable 'every-man', to A Good Day To Die Hard's characterless, boring, fearless, metal-skinned plonker.

There is no momentum or joy to be found here, only tedium. A masterclass in how not to direct a movie. By all means watch it. I did. But if you do make sure to rent it, and afterwards try and erase all memory of having seen it.

The film starts off with a pretty big bang. John McClane, played by Bruce Willis heads off to sort out his troublesome son is Russia. He gets on a plane and lands in a place he has never been before but seems to quickly be able to locate Jack. After an explosion at the courthouse where Jack is part of a trial, an extremely long car chase takes place. While there is plenty of action going on, and a pretty good car chase, this part of the film was so long! Don't get me wrong, I love a good car scene but this one seemed to go on forever. I think I was about 40 minutes in when I looked at the clock and this part of the film had only just finished.

In regards to the rest of the plot, A Good Day to Die Hard is pretty disappointing. I was expecting something quite interesting and complex, with some really good bad guys (like in the fourth film) but that wasn't what I got at all. I found the plot to be very average, at best, and it did little to hold my interest. To add to a quite boring plot, there is the terrible writing. In previous films in this series, there have been some great one liners, some witty remarks from both Willis and the bad guys and just some generally great dialogue but this film didn't really have any of that. The one liners given to John McClane were nothing new, they were predictable and they weren't funny like they have been before.

However, while the plot and dialogue were disappointing, Bruce Willis was not. Although he gets a script not up to the standards of previous films, he does the best he can with it. Also, he is far from being the age he was at the beginning of this series but he still plays McClane extremely well. Age does not seem to be a weakening factor for Willis as he is still a great action film actor.

Action it has and blood and gore but a totally preposterous story. Nothing wrong with the acting but if you are a fan of Bruce Willis and Die Hard movies you will immediately see the flaws in this. Although I did like the moment when a baddie dies in the same way as Hanz Gruber (Alan Rickman) that made me smile. Unfortunately, for an experienced cop like McClain who has been involved in numerous terror situations and is a shrewd detective for him to ruin an attempt by his son to move a Russian prisoner makes him seem utterly stupid. He would have understood what was happening and let his son get on with his job. But no... there again there wouldn't have been a film if he hadn't intervened. If you like blood and gore and impossible stunts then this is for you. I prefer a good story with my action... this wasn't.
