A Good Day to Die Hard

Rated 2.0

Unfortunately, the Bruce Willis/John McClane of A Good Day to Die Hard is nothing but a sad-eyed parody of himself in a generic actioner. And the worst thing is that today’s McClane has devolved to become the type of indestructible Wiley E. cartoon character from which the Die Hard films had originally steered away. And unlike other entries, there’s not even a solid villain to hiss at. The film’s narrative nonsense has McClane dropped into Moscow to pull his wayward son’s (Jai Courtney) bacon out of the fire. And the McClane way of family bonding is blowing shit up, so lots of shit gets blown up. Cinemark 14, Feather River Cinemas and Paradise Cinema 7. Rated R.
