"A Good Day To Die Hard" is the fifth instalment in the Die Hard series of films, an engaging set of action packed movies, so should you watch this one?

TL;DR - no, don't watch this film.

If you're after a good film - it just isn't. There's no real suspense, the characters aren't engaging, the actors are capable of much better performances, and the interesting twist isn't enough to save it... and for an action film, the action is disappointing.Check out IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes for similar but more comprehensive reviews.

If you're after a mindless action film - don't watch this, the actions sequences are somehow boring... there's armoured personnel carriers barrelling through the streets of Moscow, there's helicopters on fire, and I didn't care. Maybe it needs a large screen and surround sound, but the dramatic events just didn't engage me, and there's a lot of "but that wouldn't happen", "why is that character doing that?", "why has there been no police response at all", and "maybe we should just fast forward through this bit".

If you're after a "good bad" film - I will blog more about these in future, as myself and a few friends are fans of "so bad they're good" films... but this film isn't in that class, it isn't that kind of bad; it's just perplexing and confusing.

The only reason to watch this film for me - so I could watch the "Everything Wrong With" episode afterwards - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tA42PExrg3g
