A Good Day to Die Hard

I was NOT impressed with this movie!  This “felt” like a 5th movie in a series – and one that needs to just hang it up!  The original Die Hard movies are classics and this didn’t compare at all.  John McClane was like some cheesy version of his former self.  And he can somehow survive almost ANYTHING and come up pretty much unscathed – some of what was fun in the originals was how beat up he got.  Who doesn’t remember him going across that broken glass with his bare feet?  There wasn’t even anything worth remembering in this one.  You’d think that being in Russia at Chernobyl and things blowing up all over would be exciting, but you’d be wrong!  Bruce Willis was like some side-kick almost the whole time and finally turned into “John McClane” about the last 15 minutes of the movie – other than that, he was trying to be a dad and connect with his son he’d lost track of over the years and spouting one-liners he was hoping would catch on.  He even throws in his famous "Yippee-ki-yay" toward the end as if that’s going to save this movie!  It didn’t!  This was just horrible!!!
