This is the fifth outing of the action movie franchise, Die Hard. Like all action movies, some suspension of belief is required. Just like The A-Team (2010), this movie rewrites the laws of physics. The first 5 minutes was very beautifully done. An assassination is completed with the help of several cutouts.
The second after the explosion at the court house, everything started going downhill. A 2 tonne jeep cannot push a 18 tonne Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) any where. You never bring asset/s into the nerve center of your safe house. The rigged corridor though is a very nice touch.
At certain points in the movie, John Mclane still show he has the New York cop sense of trouble, to stop this from turning into a very expensive B grade movie.
The last reel on literally throws everything out of the window. Radioactivity, momentum, the necessary explosions and more radioactivity.
A forgettable movie, unlike Die Hard 3 and 4.
Why don’t anyone do movies like Safe House (Ryan Reynolds), Jack Reacher or Transit anymore?
