A Good Day To Die Hard

Who here does not love Bruce Willis? Once more, we get to see Bruce Willis played the role as Detective John McClane and his son, Jack McClane by Jai Courtney. This time, the entire whole storyline revolves in a father and son matter. Bruce Willis portrayed as a father who knew nothing much about his family or what his son was doing. He decided to pick up a vacation to Russia. While in Russia, he met with his son who worked as a CIA operatives in secrecy without John’s knowledge.

And the rest, as much as I would like to tell, here are the check lists. Terrorist, yes, hot sexy Russian spy played by Yuliya Snigir as Irina, yes, Chernobyl, yes and lots more. This movie as usual, just like any other Die Hard movies, is just awesome on its own. Still it makes me wonder though. Since the entire whole movie was about father and son dispute and the love and hate relationship, why they did not put it forward as a Father’s Day movie? It will be a great theme. Stubborn son and a stubborn father. But these two, sure knows how to make Russians as the perfect target practice.

Like Father Like Son.

Like Father Like Son.

Irina (Yuliya Snigir). Big bikes and sexy fits her well.

The beautiful, hot and sexy Irina played by Yuliya Snigiri is the daughter to Yuri Kamarov, portrayed by Sebastian Koch in the movie. She just added up more spice in the movie.

Awkward Moments

That awkward moments. John McClane, and his son Jack McClane escorting Yuri Kamarov.

Love and hate relationship between John and Jack

John: I don’t like this. Something is not right here.
Jack: Shut Up John. Just enjoy the reunion.

Even in a tight situation they still argued.

Jack: I told you right?
John: Shut up and shoot!

Personally, I think, this movie has more jokes in it. Over all it was a good movie but its theme, just does not suit as a Valentine’s Date movie pick up. Should have been during Father’s Day. Well guys, it is kinda hard to say no to Bruce Willis’s movie especially this particular one. I say this is highly recommended.

Here is a hint, for those of you who played Call of Duty Modern Warfare 1, you will noticed a very familiar landmark in Chernobyl. It makes me wonder personally, how did the movie crew survived in a what used to be exposed town or still exposed?
