Consensus: A Good Day to Die Hard is the weakest entry in a storied franchise, and not even Bruce Willis' smirking demeanor can enliven a cliched, uninspired script.

Wesley Morris

This is the fifth and least of the Die Hard movies.

It's all more than a little silly, but Willis' presence at least provides undercurrents of easy jocularity.

It makes you think that the previous movies, or the first three really great ones, were all just a fluke.

For anyone who remembers the "Die Hard" adventures at their vital and exciting best, this film feels like a near-death experience.

The action is spectacular but it's incoherently directed, so often you can't tell who's smashing what lorry/jeep/helicopter into what, let alone why.

I didn't think it was physically possible to doze off at a movie as loud as A Good Day to Die Hard, but for a few moments my mind found some distant, peaceful refuge.

Few fans of the series would disagree that this sclerotic fifth installment should probably be the last.

Jason Bailey

It is, for anyone who loved the original films, an abomination.
