Of course we all want a good dose of destruction especially in the aftermath of Valentine's Day, but the slam-bang demolition orchestrated here, though rambunctious enough, seems run-of-the-mill.

John McClane turns out to be such an annoying, bullying dad that as comedian Chris Rock might phrase it, 'I'm not saying his son Jack should shoot him ... but I'd understand.'

Take this one with a chaser of your favorite "Die Hard" memories and hope that the series goes out on a higher note. John McClane deserves better.

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

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

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.

Loud with nothing to say, "Good Day" joins recent duds from Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger in a trifecta of pointless wallows in '80s action nostalgia.

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

Don't be dismayed, Die Hard fans. The problem is with the movie, not yourselves.

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 He has instead been replaced by an unstoppable killing machine who - like a pull-string toy - sprouts irrelevant catch phrases like 'I'm on vacation!'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.

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.

A Good Day To Die Hard is an ugly, crass and uncomfortably mean-spirited sequel that bears no resemblance to its predecessors.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10

Forget what you know about the earlier "Die Hard" films. This 'Good Day' is not the "Die Hard," nor the John McClane that we've come to know.

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.

Starts off with the right idea but undermines itself with an almost non-existent storyline, interminable padding, indestructible good guys and genuine insults to the audience's intelligence.

With little going for A Good Day to Die Hard in any aspect really, it's certainly a disappointing addition to the Die Hard franchise
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Bad acting and stiff dialogue rear their ugly head in the opening scene and just douse the movie in their thick juices repeatedly until it ends.

John Moore seems to take all of our hopes for this out with an exciting-then-boring car chase that feels like it takes 40 minutes to complete.

Die Hard 5 does at least feature the best villain in the franchise: director John Moore.
