Over all, Not bad. Not as good as #4 (Live Free or Die Hard) which had a lot of snappy banter and good chemistry. This one, the chemistry is not as strong between John and his son, Jack. As both are doing the 'strong, slient' thing. Lots of destruction, lots of explosions, several 'wait, that fall should have killed them...', and oh, the old classic - slow-mo explosions. And lets not forget the gun battles in a place that... yea, that was interesting. Small twist I didn't see coming. I've discovered the McCLane's power. He's indestructable.

Best scene was the car chase near the beginning. LOTS of destruction, cars everywhere. And funny snappy commentary by John. He wasn't as funny later. Trying for serious. But here, at the beginning, boy yea, take on that Tank John. Sure. That will go well. NOT.

Enjoyable, but not outstanding.

One of the many trailers was for Fast & Furious 6. All I can say - looks like Die Hard 6 to me! Explosions! Tanks! Planes! Cars!

Oh, good, I'm glad to hear that it's pretty good at least. For old time's sake I wanted to go see it, since Die Hard and Die Hard 4 are two of my alltime favorite movies. But I was very afraid it would be terrible. Bummer that the banter isn't as good as it could be, but I'm not sure anything would top the banter of 1 and 4. LOL

yea, my expectations were probably a little too high after how good #4 was.

I think it comes off as a little scattered because there's not really a strong 'main' villian. However, the action sequences were good. I just wanted more banter/commentary/oh no you don't type stuff.

The car chase nearish the beginning is a long, very intense, very good sequence. THAT one had some good commentary from John and stuff that made you laugh. I just wish they had more like that in the rest of the movie.

Worth seeing if one is a fan. :)
