Reviews for this film from our members:
Beth Accomando @ KPBS Cinema Junkie
Excerpt: The Moore is less approach announced itself early in an excruciatingly uninventive car chase and then reaffirmed itself with a supreme lack of humor that permeated almost every scene.
[New – 7/25] | Dragan Antulov @ Draxblog VI [Croatian]
Marina Antunes @ Row Three
Jason Bailey @ Flavorwire
Excerpt: Perhaps it’s silly to get this worked up about what’s become of the character — after all, if Bruce Willis doesn’t care about John McClane, why should we?
Luke Bonanno @ DVDizzy.com
Excerpt: It isn’t surprising to see Bruce Willis making a subpar action movie, but him dragging down his most beloved brand in the process is both a surprise and a disappointment.
Tim Brayton @ Antagony & Ecstasy
Excerpt: It wants to have it both ways, mixing the aesthetics of the ’80s and the ’10s together, and this does not work.
Simon Brew @ Den Of Geek
Daniel Carlson @ Pajiba
Kevin Carr @ 7M Pictures
Excerpt: 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.
Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
Excerpt: Woods’s screenplay doesn’t even bother to make sense and telegraphs its blunders. It’s a pile of cliched plot holes sauced with strained one liners.
Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
Excerpt: Whatever future this series may have, A Good Day to Die Hard is its current nadir.
Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
Excerpt: A good day – it isn’t, To quote John McClane: “Something stinks.”
Ali Gray @ TheShiznit.co.uk
Vadym Grygoriev @ kinoblog.com [Ukrainian]
MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
Excerpt: Bland generic action pudding that manages to be sociopathic, too.
Daniel Kelly @ Danland
Excerpt: “A Good Day to Die Hard” is so slickly entertaining and confidently pieced together that its inferiority to the original very quickly becomes a mild concern.
Benjamin Kramer @ The Voracious Filmgoer
Josh Larsen @ LarsenOnFilm.com
Excerpt: …true to the series in one crucial way: its zen-like commitment to wanton chaos.
Joe Lozito @ Big Picture Big Sound
Excerpt: This insultingly slap-dash sequel has as little relation to the original “Die Hard” as it does to logic and narrative coherence.
Piers Marchant @ Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
Excerpt: John McClane doen’t die hard anymore; he doesn’t die, period.
Mike McGranaghan @ The Aisle Seat
Excerpt: A Good Day to Die Hard is the Superman IV: The Quest for Peace of the Die Hard series. It is Jaws: The Revenge, The Next Karate Kid, and that movie where Jason Voorhees kills people in a spaceship.
Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See
Excerpt: A Good Day To Die Hard is the most abusrd action movie of the year. Simon Miraudo @ Quickflix
Jason Pirodsky @ Expats.cz
Excerpt: RIP, Mr. McClane Jerry Roberts @ Armchair Cinema
Excerpt: Here is a movie concocted by filmmakers who have completely forgotten all the reasons that we keep coming back to the adventures of John McClane.
Diego Salgado @ Fandigital [Spanish] Marcio Sallem @ Em Cartaz [Portuguese]
Tom Santilli @ Examiner.com
Excerpt: That’s a far cry from the realism of the first Die Hard. If that John McClain could have looked into the future to see what would become of his franchise, he may have joined Hans Gruber by flinging himself off the top of the building.
Amir Siregar @ Flick Magazine [Indonesian] Frank Swietek @ Ine Guys Opinion
Excerpt: Falls into the depths of dumbness at the very start and goes downhill from there.
Jean-François Vandeuren @ Panorama-cinema.com [French]
Phil Villarreal @ COEDMagazine.com
Excerpt: Willis is squint-eyed and angry throughout the movie, and not just because he’s as old as he is, yet still feels the financial need to keep making these movies.
