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.

John McClane is back. Well, actually, a 2 dimensional version of him is, somehow devoid of any of those appealing characteristics of humanity and "guy-next-door-ness". This time, we are led to believe he has a son we have not yet heard about, whom he travels to Moscow to find and restore the family connection he lost some time ago. His son has taken a career path that astonishingly his pop was unaware of, and McClane Senior and McClane Junior soon bond through killing umpteen anonymous bad guys, plus causing untold injuries and deaths in the populace around them. To be fair, there are some breathtaking scenes in the car chase through Moscow, with an incredible amount of mayhem, smashing cars and explosions.. which is, let's be truthful, part of why we watch a movie with `Die Hard' in the title. It's exciting, even though the camera tends to shake around so much you often have just a sense that something exciting is happening, while not being fully aware of what it actually is. But the buzz isn't sustainable, and as the impressive stuntwork gives way to cgi McClanes flying through the air in the latter half of the movie, our brains are simply unable to hold that disbelief in suspension any more and the movie becomes at best a partial snoozefest. The latter half of the movie suffers also from the absence of Moscow, which turns out to be quite an inspired choice for a movie like this, which gets replaced with somewhere suitably abandoned and lacking in energy (no pun intended, in case you know the story already). This might have held together if there was a suitably charismatic villain.. but there isn't one. The US taking sides with one half of a Moscow oligarch feud seems both unlikely and distasteful, and neither of them seem at all.. well, interesting.Read more ›
