Action fans could do a lot worse than enjoy 98 minutes of Bruce Willis and the state of the art explosive effects team giving their all in A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD.
First, it's a horrible title, yipee-kay-yeah wouldn't Die Hard 5 have been better than that? Put that aside and sit back and enjoy Willis at his easygoing best and emerging Australian star Jai Courtney (Jack Reacher) as John McLane's son Jack, a CIA operative in over his head in Russia.
John Mclane goes to get his boy out of jail, not knowing that he's an operative there to break out a Russian mobster with a whole lot of valuable secrets.
It sounds laborious, but its actually a pretty well oiled machine and gets you just enough plot to be passable while Willis and team commence to destroy most of Moscow by handgun, machine gun, war helicopter, car, rope, you name it, the McLane boys do it.
I thought it was a blast.
Is Bruce Willis using a time machine? The dude is timeless, in great shape and in great humor. If you loved the first 4, you are probably going to have a good time here.
GREAT music score by Marco Beltrami.
Turn your brain off and the sound up and enjoy the ride. Willis and team get a B-.
