Lent Day 29 Don't end this franchise with "A Good Day to Die Hard' - CinemaDave

Mar. 13th, 2013 01:32 pm Lent Day 29 Don't end this franchise with "A Good Day to Die Hard'

The disappointing box office of **The Last Stand,** **Bullet to the Brain** and **A Good Day to Die Hard** has been predicted as the death knell of action movies starring actors who are over 55 years old. If cinema history has taught us one thing, don't count out Arnold Swarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone and Bruce Willis.

The 5th film of the series, **A Good Day to Die Hard** features John McClain (Willis) in Moscow, Russia. McClain is trying to see his son Jack(Jai Courtney), who is a political prisoner. Things explode, people betray one another and John McClain gets another boo boo on his forehead.

This is the weakest entry of the **Die Hard** series. While John McClain is still a great movie character, the overwhelming use of special effects stifle the human element. In fact, this does not seem like a **Die Hard** movie, but more like a weaker **James Bond** or **Bourne Identity** flick.

Die Hard destroyed so many cars in the first sequence man. I could've use that Porsche.
