After you get through so many sequels, it’s not surprising that they never live up to the original. I’m extremely saddened to say this one is the fourth best out of the five Die Hard films. The trailers for it are pretty good–they promoted the heck out of this movie and they really did a great job doing it. You have to work pretty damn hard for me to say no to Bruce Willis, but I was overall disappointed in this movie.
All stunts. Yes, it’s an action movie, yes, big guns and explosions and car chases are mandated, but it was so over the top in places that even I had a hard time buying into it. And I’ve seen all the Fast and Furious movies.
The studio should be severely punished for either hiring the writer who wrote the book on this, or for letting him get away with such a poorly scripted movie. The dialogue is pretty pathetic and predictable. The action scenes last too long, and there is too much space between them. The plot itself isn’t bad, it just isn’t executed very well.
Hearing Bruce Willis try to speak Russian was priceless, though. The comedic effect wasn’t bad either, in some places, so I can’t write off that effort entirely.
One big complaint: Bruce Willis survives two car accidents, including getting hit head on and getting rolled, and comes out with little more than the wind knocked out of him.
But the biggest mistake, the most ridiculous part of the entire film: the bad guy gets pushed off a roof, and the camera shoots him from above as he falls, and he has the EXACT SAME stupid, surprised look on his face as Hans Gruber did in the original Die Hard movie when he fell off the building. I laughed out loud, seriously, because I couldn’t believe the writer and or director would stoop so low for an effect that is over TWENTY YEARS OLD.
The family element of the movie is nice. They got the same actress to play McClane’s daughter (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), so that was great–I really liked her in the last movie, and [MINOR SPOILER ALERT] it’s nice to see a McClane reunion at the end. As to the new guy, I’m not gonna lie, I’m a full steam ahead Jai Courtney fan–I’d watch him over Channing Tatum any day–but I just hope the next movie he’s in lets him do more than squeeze into a t-shirt that is too small for his shoulders and biceps.
Like I said, I am a diehard Bruce Willis fan (pun definitely intended), so I can’t say this is a terrible movie in all respects. I know I voiced some pretty big complaints, but even so, it’s a fun, hard-hitting action movie and a decent way to spend a couple hours out of your day. Far-fetched though some of those stunts may be, some of them are just too darn entertaining to write off as simply cheap titillation.
