The action is spectacular but it's incoherently directed, so often you can't tell who's smashing what lorry/jeep/helicopter into what, let alone why.

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.

There is plenty of action in this film, but the characters are a bit sketchy. There is so much backstabbing and doublecrossing that you tend to lose patience with the story.

It's a decent action flick, but change a few characters' names and it's barely recognizable as a Die Hard movie.

It was exactly what I expected from a fifth installment of a 25-year-old franchise that was released in February when all the other films dropped in the summer.

And having spent all these words ragging on the film, I will continue to semi-recommend it anyway. Why? Well, I happen to like big dumb action, and as long as that's all you're expecting, that is a thing that you shall receive.

The poster-child for the big, dumb action movie, but Bruce Willis as John McClane makes everything better.

Yes, it's a brain drain of a film, but its go-for-broke zeal is contagious and fun, mindless or otherwise.

Many critics have already determined that this Die Hard is a bad day at the cinema. For me, like so many modern action films, if you leave your brain at the door, you may leave Russia with love.

Suspension of reality is a must. But that's Die Hard, and this Die Hard die hard fans won't love but won't hate either.

Action-junkies' delight: blazing bullets, car crashes, perpetual motion. What, you were expecting dialogue and plot?

There really is no point in looking for logic in a fifth Die Hard movie; these films have become a parody of themselves, wallowing in their inane action set pieces and sassy one-liners without much concern for plot or coherence.

It's great to see Willis back in the role that suits him most.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
February 15, 2013
On any serious level, it's deplorable, but it's so macho a vision of old age that it becomes quaintly enjoyable.

It ain't perfect, but it sure finds a way to get the job done.
Full Review | Original Score: B
February 14, 2013
It's all more than a little silly, but Willis' presence at least provides undercurrents of easy jocularity.

February 14, 2013
It's fun, but ultimately inconsequential, and doesn't feel especially like a "Die Hard" movie
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 14, 2013
Unnecessary but not unwatchable, this maintains a brisk pace as it moves through the familiar action set pieces, most of them decently orchestrated.
February 14, 2013
A quarter-century after it began, A Good Day to Die Hard continues the franchise without undue embarrassment.
