Movie Review: A Good Day To Die Hard

Nuclear WMDs in Chernobyl, armed commando gangs in Moscow, a rogue politician and a powerful businessman with dubious links. Mayhem on the roads, and attack choppers in the air. It’s all in a day’s work for McLane and his CIA spy son. The good men try hard to be funny, the bad boys try to be menacing. Except for an outrageous and unbelievable (after the stunts with the fighter jet in the earlier installment, DH fans know nothing is impossible for this gora Rajnikant) truck chase through the streets of Moscow, which is worth it, the movie degenerates into meandering gun battles and predictable encounters, and a comfortable recliner chair is recommended, especially in the second half.

It’s a good day to catch some sleep!

This is a slap on the face to any of the fans wishing for another good Die Hard film, and a punch to the nuts to anyone else dumb enough to pay money to see it in the theater. I’m sorry; I was just really ticked off by this one. Nice review.
