Western Times - - LIFE | TV GUIDE -

Overkill, ex­cess and won’t some­body just kill it al­ready, are some words that may spring to mind when watch­ing this fifth Die Hard movie. John McClane (Bruce Wil­lis, left) jets off to Rus­sia to help his way­ward son Jack (Jai Court­ney). But on dis­cov­er­ing Jack is an un­der­cover CIA op­er­a­tive work­ing to pre­vent a nu­clear weapons heist, fa­ther and son be­come a pair of gun-mer­ce­nar­ies wield­ing not to be messed with. Court­ney shows all the right at­tributes for the per­fect ac­tion hero, while Wil­lis looks like all that run­ning around is start­ing to take its toll. Fun for the ex­trav­a­gance of car chase scenes, bombs and bat­tles, not so much for the rest. ★★★
