Movie Review: A Good Day To Die Hard

To be honest i don’t know what’s going on here at my end with regards to the cinemas. A lot of movies released are yet to be shown here but anyways we still hopeful.

Back in ’88 when Officer John McClane was brought to life via the movie Die Hard, with Bruce Willis acting the role, movie watchers back then and after where impressed, including yours truly. Then in 1990 Die Hard 2: Die Harder was released and again we loved it. 5 years later Die Hard: With A Vengeance (1995)was released and with an rating of 7.5, i need not say more about how impressive the movie was. 12 years later, Live Free or Die Hard (2007)was released and as a nerd, i was truly impressed with some of the tech on display :D. Now after 6 years, Officer John McClane is back in A Good Day To Die Hard,  with his favourite quote, Yipee Ki- Yay and as usual, he’s always in the wrong place at the wrong time.

A Good Day to Die Hard is directed by John Moore, written by Skip Woods, and Roderick Thorp while the movie stars Bruce Willis as John McClane, Jai Courtney as Jack McClane, Sebastian Koch as Komarov, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Lucy, Yuliya Snigir as Irina, Amaury Nolasco as Murphy, Radivoje Bukvic as Alik, and Sergei Kolesnikov as Chagarin.

John McClane after searching for his son, Jack McClane, finds out he’s in a Russian prison and flies there to go see him and see how he can make things right. Unknown to him, Jack is a highly trained CIA operative on a mission to get Komarov out of the country and stop a nuclear weapons heist. The mission goes down south, with the Russian underworld after both Jack and John. To salvage the situation, father and son, combine their opposing methods to try and save the day.

With an rating of 5.8 and gross earnings standing at $38 million by 19 February, A Good Day to Die Hard, is not doing bad at all and as usual Bruce Willis did not disappoint. Suffice to say i’ll rate the plot as okay, acting a few notches above average, the action scenes where cool, and the stunts where well pulled off.

Another fine addition to the Die Hard series, though not better than the previous but look forward to adding it my Die Hard collection.

Rating: 7.5/10

Cinema Worthiness: A fine movie to see with your popcorn and drink (y)
