A good day to die hard

Director: John Moore

Starring: Yuliya Snigir, Bruce Willis, Jai Courtney

The 5th in the Die Hard franchise with all the usual bullets, trucks flip, choppers explosions, shattering glass and buildings collapsing. Sadly, yet again, the action supersedes story as the John McClane saga loiters on. The plot involves McClane's (Bruce Willis) undercover CIA agent and estranged son Jack (Jai Courtney). Jack is stationed in Moscow and dad travels to Russia for a holiday only to find Jack has been arrested. In a blaze of explosions Jack breaks loose and dad follows in hot pursuit. On an undercover mission McClane junior resents his father’s interference but the pair bond as they create havoc and mayhem until they end up in Chernobyl and discover a major national security threat. The highlights are the movie was Shot in Moscow, Budapest and Chernobyl otherwise little to recommend it.
