Review: A Good Day To Die Hard

By JORDAN RIEFE  |  February 15, 2013
2.0 2.0 Stars



Just in time for Valentine's Day, this fifth iteration of the Die Hard franchise (launched in 1988) has Bruce Willis's John McClane heading to Moscow to help his son Jack (Jai Courtney) protect an enemy of the state from a corrupt government official. A car chase leads to a stand-off in a high-rise and a midnight run to Chernobyl, where a conspiracy to trade enriched uranium comes to light. Along the way there are double-crosses, shootouts, and the supposedly touching scene when Jack starts calling his father "Dad" instead of "John." A Good Day To Die Hard is a movie for people who like blowin' stuff up, evidently a favorite pastime of director John Moore, whose action scenes make about as much sense as his script, which was likely written on a cocktail napkin.
