A Good Day to Die Hard

Posted on 02.20.2013

A Good Day to Die Hard” may have taken some serious blows from the critics, but my fellow fans of the series  will appreciate the fact that Bruce Willis can still kick butt and deliver. Transplanted to Russia to lend a hand to his secret agent son, Detective John McClane blows things up and shoots Russian mobsters. What more could an action fan possibly wish for? Granted, the movie is nowhere near the greatness of the original. The bland Jai Courtney, who plays John’s secret agent son, Jack, is a sad reminder of how far we are from the days of Samuel L. Jackson and Reginald VelJohnson, the dad from “Family Matters,” working with McClane. We are in the age of Die Hard in which we see Justin Long as a whiny hacker and, in this case, Courtney as an action hero who sees very little action. However, I enjoyed the film simply because Bruce Willis is awesome, and Russia is a pretty cool setting. If you liked the original movie, go see this. It may be toned down, but at least Long is not in it.
