A Good Day to Die Hard - Film Review

Published April 26th 2013

Strap yourself in for lethal, action pumped mayhem when hard hitting cowboy cop John McClane (Bruce Willis) goes head to head with Moscow's no nonsense bad guys.

The fifth instalment of Die Hard will not disappoint its loyal following. A Good Day To Die Hard introduces John's estranged son Jack McClane (Jai Courtney) whom, it turns out, is an undercover CIA operative in the midst of a dangerous game of Russian roulette. When a simple vacation turns into more than a happy family reunion, expect true Die Hard style.

Whilst the plot leaves a few potholes, the twists, turns, and over the top continuous action makes up for any dents along the way. Stir in a cocktail of sentiment, brutality and comedy, and any Die Hard fan will be feeling the excitement of adrenalin course through their veins. It's worth seeing just for the classic helicopter scene.

It looks like director John Moore has served up a lot of fun with this one and has something for all action fans to enjoy. For those movie goers less attuned to the thrill of loud, impossible extravagance, I guess in true John McLane style it's yippee ki yay mother...
