A Good Day To Die Hard

When the tag line reads: "Like Father, Like Son, Like Hell" you immediately know this film is going to dreadful and somewhat awesome at the same time. Sadly for me it was just mostly mediocre and dissatisfying.

What was most frustrating thing about the film was the lack of effort. Despite being a Die Hard film there is very little "full on action", there is just loads of shooting and things just mostly crash and/or explode. There is neither any grittiness or grandeur to the whole affair.

It goes without saying that this film is a no-brainer but the whole thing is just massive face-palm. The plot is thread bare at best and the dialogue is diabolically bad. You don't want forced and painful bonding in a Die Hard film, especially when it is self depreciating. Throwing it in people's faces that you are making people cringe just adds insult to injury.

The whole sentiment is probably all summed up by a piss poor attempt to sexualise the film with the introduction of Yuliya Snigir's character. I have to say that she is probably one of the worst actresses I have seen in a long time, stick to the modelling...

Long story short, passable film if you enjoy Die Hard and you are literally paying no money to watch it... Otherwise just wait until you come across it on TV and there is nothing better to do >.<
