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.

By the time we get to A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD, about the one good thing about it is the poster tagline : “Yippie-Ki-Ay Mother Russia!”. By now, the balding – and 58 year old Bruce Willis – exists merely as a cypher. The wisecrackin' family man who is at the end of his tether no longer exist. John McClane has quit the smokes, quit the booze, quite swearing, replacing them all for the vice of the humourless murder. It becomes painfully apparent that in this franchise, McClane exists as a default James Bond/Bourne character whose knack for extended CGI-fuelled car chases is paralleled only by his ability to wander into the midst of mass scale destruction with a passport that has seen more countries than David Attenborough.

In the fifth installment, there's a bolted-in previously invisible son – surely not the same kid we saw in a photo frame in “Die Hard”? - who magically has taken the career path of the modern age, that is, doing the job his dad did. It's charmless, with none of the wit or dialogue that made the first three films memorable. Every character speaks 'Placeholder Dialogue', quickly written by a modern scriptwriter to allow plot to move from 'here' to 'there'. Characters don't talk like that. People don't talk like that.

And the plot is unnecessarily complicated. If you can't sum up a movie plot in two sentences, it shouldn't be an action movie. Bad Guys Chase Good Guys. Good Guys Have Computer Secrets. There's Russians and … oh wait, that's more than two sentences. Lets try another movie?

“Commando” : Retired Killing Machine destroys half of the world to get back kidnapped daughter.
“Die Hard”. Divorced Dad bumbles into terrorist plot and they play 34 storeys of Hunt and Kill.

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.
