John McClane is listed as the character Willis plays in this movie, but the John McClane I've grown to love over the years is no where to be found.

This is the fifth and least of the Die Hard movies.

We'd all be better served if Die Hard would simply die already.

The final nail in the coffin for John McClane...

Don't let the title fool you. This should have starred Steven Seagal and gone straight to DVD.

The international location, political intrigue and 007 flourishes in [the] score all suggest a fundamental shift in the series-or ... a passing of the torch to McClane Jr.

This is clearly the worst entry in the franchise, a movie so lazy and dull that if you simply took the Die Hard out of the name, it might as well be Mercury Rising.

Once blithely acceptable as American id, McClane's become the archetypal American idiot. [Blu-ray]
Full Review | Original Score: .5/4

A Good Day to Die Hard is the worst Die Hard yet; substituting loud, noisy and sloppily-filmed action for what used to be one of Bruce Willis' more entertaining roles.

This new entry to the Die Hard series features a seriously underdeveloped plot held together by stunt sequences that are as overblown as they are ridiculous.

The score by Marco Beltrami might suggest a mission impossible, but the movie's reality is more like a poor man's Wile E. Coyote-Road Runner cartoon...

A Good Day to Die Hard isn't just half-boring and indifferently made; at its worst, it's downright dispiriting.

Empty, ugly and dumb, a grim and cynical exercise in death and destruction.

The story devolves into little more than mindless action sequences in which the trills are cheap and the production values even cheaper.

There was something in the pre - CGI days that made McClane's character more vulnerable...and fun.

Undeniably entertaining action-movie franchise fodder [but] had the producers [made] Mary Elizabeth Winstead the film's other action hero rather than going with the convention of casting yet another male, Die Hard 5 would have been awesome.

A perfectly fine collection of ridiculous stunts and gratuitous explosions ruined by the addition of nonsensical plot and acting that appears to be submerged beneath weapons-grade painkillers.

When a Die Hard movie doesn't have a single well-staged action sequence, you know something went badly wrong.

Sees both franchise and character transformed into tragically unimaginative, cacophonously violent and embarrassingly unfunny shadows of their once great former selves.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Gone is the vulnerable, smart and resourceful hero of the original. He has instead been replaced by an unstoppable killing machine who - like a pull-string toy - sprouts irrelevant catch phrases like 'I'm on vacation!' in the middle of a fire fight.
