One of the best things about the Die Hard movies is, you always know what you're getting. Over the top, ridiculously wild action. The car chase scene alone in this one kept my heart pounding for a good five minutes. I wonder if I can count that as an exercise workout?
The bromance part of this movie is between John McClane and his son. They meet, unexpectedly for his son Jack, and things don't go well. They're both pissed at each other and I kept hoping we would find out why since I didn't remember the last movie but it wasn't mentioned. Of course, as the story unfolds, they manage to reconcile. There are several good moments in the movie where we can see father and son are a lot alike. Though they both have different ideas on how to fight crime, each method has its merits and the two men eventually decide neither way is the best all the time. It's good to compromise. Hey, maybe our government needs to view this flick.
It's fun to watch an older Bruce Willis go through the danger and mayhem that make up these movies. He's still a good looking bad ass! Speaking of that, pay close attention to a scene at the end when we learn a secret about Yuri. He does this kind of growl thing that sent a shiver down my spine. Delightfully wicked!
This fifth movie isn't the best of the series, but bad guys are killed, there are plot twists galore and the good guys end up winning. It is indeed a good day.
Buy it at Amazon or rent on Netflix.
