Movie Review: "A Good Day to Die Hard"

A Good Day to Die Hard is the fifth installment in the Die Hard franchise, and while it fails to live up to the heights of its predecessors, you could do a whole lot worse than this movie.

The film finds Bruce Willis's John McClane in Russia trying to reconnect with his estranged, CIA agent son, Jack, all the while the two of them are fighting Russian bad guys and saving the day.  That's essentially the entire movie, but it works.  While there are no memorable villains, set pieces, or gags, it's still a whole lot of fun, and Jai Courtney is believable as McClane's son.  Could a spin-off franchise be far behind?

Overall, if you're looking for action and mayhem, all with a good sense of humor to go along with it, A Good Day to Die Hard will delight.

I give A Good Day to Die Hard a B-!
