A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD
Let us never forget the fi rst two Die Hard movies were ripping, gripping pulp entertainment. That was more than two decades ago. Now here’s Die Hard 5, which is as hazily forgettable as the previous two. Most will fi le it away for future trivia quizzes as “the one where John McClane goes to Moscow’’. John has an estranged son named Jack ( Jai Courtney) who is in trouble in Russia so he goes over to save him. But Jack doesn’t need saving, as he’s really working undercover for the CIA. So begins a medium-paced merry- go- round of blam- blam- blam and blahblah- blah, which includes a double- cross twist that is too easy to pick and several dodgy Russian accents that are too hard to stomach.
