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.

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.

Oh how the mighty have fallen. One of the most iconic film franchises reduced to this. Let me explain why this film annoyed me so much.

The original Die Hard trilogy holds a special place in the hearts of most fans of action films. Back then (and it's much the same now) most action films had a lot of explosions, a lot of stunts and over the top scenes, but were a bit short on character and story. The Roger Moore Bond films are a key example of this. But then Die Hard came along, and we had a main hero who got hurt and who felt mortal. He wasn't a super spy, or a general in the army. He was just a man at the wrong place at the wrong time. That made him feel much more relatable than other action stars of the time.

That's all gone here. John McLane is now being thrown off helicopters without a scratch, having clips of heavy machine gun fire emptied at him with not one bullet coming close. I'm quite tempted to buy the DVD so I can watch the deleted scene where John gets injected with the Super Soldier serum. OK, so Die Hard has abandoned its roots. But is this still a good film?

NO! The script is absolutely terrible. If you drank one shot of vodka every time John McLane says "I'm on vacation" you would die of alcohol poisoning. You can't hear half the dialogue over all the music and explosions. In another film, that would be a bad thing. But since the script here is so terrible, and the acting is sub par (Bruce Willis does his best, but you can only do so much with this material), you're actually grateful for the bits you couldn't hear. And John McLane's son is an annoying whiny brat who never stops complaining about John not being there for him. Mind you, if John McLane was my father, I'd disown him - every time he shows up, terrorists appear.

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.
