Independent Cinema - A Good Day to Die Hard Review

Independent Cinema writes: My relationship with the Die Hard franchise is something that I cherish greatly. The first three films are some of my favourite action films ever (yes, including the widely ridiculed Die Hard 2: Die Harder), and when it comes to Live Free or Die Hard, I recognize it as an inferior film, but it still holds true to the franchise while upping the ante. So it’s no surprise that I had no problem getting back into the theater to watch a fifth entry into the series, this time bringing John McClane (Bruce Willis) overseas to help out his son Jack. However, when it comes to A Good Day to Die Hard, there’s little here to satisfy the fans of the original films, as the brains of the franchise get reduced down to barrages of CG and special effects, some poorly filmed action sequences, and a complete disregard for plot points. Whereas every other film made sense in its own little way (maybe Live Free or Die Hard walks back and forth over that line), A Good Day to Die Hard doesn’t make itself feel like a Die Hard film, except by means of having John McClane delivering one-liners and bringing trouble unto himself. (A Good Day to Die Hard, Cinema) -
