In It’s a Good Day to Die Hard, Bruce Willis shows that even though action stars age, their movies never get old. Willis’ John McClane is back but this time it seems to be by a random turn of events, leaving him to wonder does he go looking for trouble, or does it just find him?
McClane (Willis) makes a trip to Russia to visit his son, Jack (Jai Courtney), whom he believes to be in trouble. During the trip, he learns that all is not as it seems. Jack is a CIA agent, working undercover to help bring down a Russian nuclear weapons operation.
The extremes parents will do to help their children is proven as John and Jack take on the Russian arms dealers. True to typical Die Hard movies, it is filled with one-liners and explosions, but this new film has the added element of family drama.
This film is more thoughtful and reflective than its predecessors, possibly because McClane (and maybe Willis as well) realize they are beginning to age. A Good Day to Die Hard proves, however, that no matter the age of the actor, action movies never get old!
A Good Day to Die Hard is currently showing at Towne Crossing 8 theaters in Greeneville. The movie is rated R. Length: 98 minutes.
