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.

As Die Hard fans we were all looking forward to the fifth outing for John McClane. Well, I have to say I was the only one of four who stayed with it until the end and I'm not sure why really. From the start it just didn't come across as a Die Hard film. The whole mood was different, there were no John McClane one-liners which identify the character, in fact were it not for the film title and Bruce Willis himself I wouldn't have known it was a Die Hard film at all. The four previous films are remembered for their action scenes, very far fetched of course, sometimes really silly, the fighter plane scene in no. 4 comes to mind, but that's why we love Die Hard. In this film the car chase sequences just seemed to go on and on and it all became very boring. That said, we (sorry I mean I) perhaps made the mistake when deciding to watch the longer uncut version.

We all thought his son was instantly unlikeable. In Die Hard 4, his daughter was feisty, displayed the McClane toughness, but in this one the son was just unpleasant throughout. Yes, he was a trained agent but if I was John McClane I wouldn't have wasted the plane fare over there. One more thing, if the characters insist on speaking Russian, and in my opinion they didn't need to because other films just have them speaking English with an accent, it only works if you can actually read the subtitles. The font was dreadful.

Was it worth the money? ABSOLUTELY NOT. Would I watch Die Hard 6 and I hear Bruce Willis may do another? ABSOLUTELY YES. I blame the filmmakers, Bruce Willis and John McClane have earned my loyalty and I would give them a chance to put things right. Bring back Sgt Al Powell, he'll lighten it up a bit.

Please don't waste your time buy purchasing this film. It's an hour and a half you will never get back. The plot is over complicated for a Die Hard movie. It is reflective of an espionage thriller rather than a straight up action movie, which doesn't work for the franchise. The direction is sloppy. It is constantly one action scene after another with no breathing space to allow the story to flow. Given this and the more complex plot, it is hard to know what is going on. As much as I am a fan of Bruce Willis, he is getting too old for this kind of role and it definitely shows in this film. Where are the hostages? That is the premiss for each of the previous movies, but they do not feature in thus film. As no one is under threat the role of John McLean feels a little redundant and the outcome would be the same with or without him. The famous "Yipee Kaye Yay" catch phrase is premature. Bruce delivers the line, you think he is going to proceed to dispatch the bad guy, yet were are treated to another 10-15mins of action before the villain meets his. I normally try to find something positive to say about any movie but on this occasion.. oh wait John McLean's ring tone was Ode To Joy. A nod to the original movie which did make me chuckle slightly.

Absolutely dreadful, a complete travesty and an insult to the memory of the earlier films. It's so bad, it's difficult to know where to begin. The plot defies logic, not that the earlier films were particularly believable, but here it's absolutely idiotic, there is no point at which you ever feel engaged because things just happen to get them from one CGI action sequence to the next.

The first action sequence is particularly loathsome, for largely unexplained reasons Willis pursues a group of escaping criminals, happily mowing down any innocent bystanders in his way; at no point is any concern shown for civilians, and the level of xenophobia shown is up there with the similarly loathsome Rush Hour 2. Aside from a token friendly taxi driver, the Russians are either generic gangsters, hot (but untrustworthy) babes or crazies, it's horribly dated; aside from the effects, and the fact that Willis looks like one of those 200-year-old Galapagos tortoises, it would have seemed to have come from around 1988.

Willis himself looks wwwwwwaaaaaaaaayyyy to old to be playing an action hero, with every CGI stunt your reaction is 'His poor back' he also looks very, very, bored, in one action sequence he simply stands there firing a machine gun with an expression of complete disinterest on his face. Not that there's anything that particularly needs doing in a film almost entirely devoted to CGI. The character is also unpleasant now, a miserable, spiteful, bitter old git that should be propping up a bar and moaning about his taxes. As for the actor playing his son, I simply can't remember anything about him.
