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 really wasn't expecting much, especially after the last film, although I was hoping that it would at least be an entertaining, if silly action film. While it doesn't exactly fail on that score it's far from great. It's a shame because it actually starts quite well. The initial set up had promise, there's some Russian political skullduggery followed by John McClane finding out that his son is in trouble with the law in Moscow.

Things get going pretty quickly and father and son encounter each other by chance at the start of a crazy chase across Moscow. They don't get on, which seems fair enough, the chase sequence is substantial, silly, but reasonably entertaining and it has an excellent truck.

Unfortunately things go down hill from that point, father and son discover that they both have a knack for killing people and that provides an instant bond and off they go. The plot gets sillier with each twist and comes to a conclusion in Chernobyl - although it manages to fail at using the inherent creepiness of the location.

As a Die Hard film it's pretty poor, it has Bruce WIllis against the bad guys, but it lacks a decent bad guy and more importantly it lacks the tension of him being alone against a superior force and the feeling that he's managing by the skin of his teeth to make an impact. Here he's just a gun wielding hero with no real sense of peril. On the bright side there's a few half decent wisecracks and of course the infamous line.

As an over the top action film it's not terrible, but there's better films out there to get your action fix, like the original Die Hard perhaps.

I had heard the reviews of this latest Die Hard but felt it must be watched to comment. Personally, for a family that have always enjoyed the DH franchise, this one was absolutely abysmal - such a disappointment - how can it be so bad compared to DH 4?. From the story line to the acting - it was so poor. Even the children were asking for some of the ridiculous (even for Hollywood) car chase scenes to be fast forwarded as they were just so boring and unimaginative. I am afraid that this is only ever going to be watched the once and sold on.

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 dear ... oh dear. You could kind of tell from watching this that Bruce Willis knew that this was possibly the worst mistake he has probably ever made. An absolute car crash of a movie. Incoherent plot, bad acting and, worst of all, terribly directed action set pieces. Please do not waste two hours of your life on this ... please.

Blu Ray review - I should have known better. I went to the cinema to see this and I was appalled at the 12A rating, most of the violence was toned down, the cursing was cut and the experience was a massive disappointment.

Then I saw that there was an extended harder cut, exclusive to Blu-Ray - being a collector of film franchises, I couldn't help myself and bought it. Bad move. Although the extended cut restores some of the violence and swearing, it actually CUTS a few of the redeeming features from the original theatrical version! Gone is the scene with Lucy McClane driving her Dad to the airport and also excised is the uplifting ending with the McClanes meeting up back in the USA. Instead we're "treated" to an even longer car chase - and that's it.

On the upside, the extras are worthwhile - although the Maximum McClane featurette is simply a montage of scenes from Die Hard 1-4 which only go to remind the audience of how good these films used to be.
