4.5 No vest this time round firewire | 14/09/2013 | See all firewire's reviews (9) The wrong guy in the wrong place at the wrong time....you could say that about Bruce Willis in this film or at least the Die hard tag. I put off watching this film a long time as I didn't want the Matrix or Highlander effect of sequels - not to mention prequals - destroying fond memories of the original, however I've survived and no lasting bad taste in the mouth.Unfortunately the premise that made Die Hard such a hit has been plundered by others so John McClane is stuck for places he can be out-numbered and isolated.....Can't go on a ship -Under siege- can't even go on a bus -Speed- so it had to be expanded. They may have taken it a bit far this time, however it was not as bad as others have said. It passed the time and I wasn't overly offended by it.The action's big, but doesn't grab you. You don't feel as though you're in the thick of it as in the original. As for the *relationship* between Father and Son .... don't even go there.As with all Die hard films there's some terrible editing. *Where did that key come from?* you may ask when you see the scene where they steal a car.Another positive is it's only an hour and a half long. Worth watching - then go and watch the original again......... surely the best Christmas film ever along with Lethal Weapon and It's a wonderful life.
