Jeremy of The Daily Rotation wrote, "I cannot believe Fox is actually releasing A Good Day to Die Hard. I’ve seen horrible action movies and I’ve even seen awful late franchise entries, but I’ve never seen something this astoundingly bad. John Moore‘s A Good Day to Die Hard makes hack Len Wiseman‘s Live Free or Die Hard not the worst thing to come out of the Fox franchise pipeline, despite A Good Day‘s promising R rating and intense action-oriented marketing campaign. The truth of it is that A Good Day to Die Hard is a boring slog that makes little sense and doesn’t even bother pumping us full of bullets or comedy. It’s all flat."
