Iconoclastic, take-no-prisoners cop John McClane, for the first time, finds himself on foreign soil after travelling to Moscow to help his wayward son Jack - unaware that Jack is really a highly-trained CIA operative out to stop a nuclear weapons heist. With the Russian underworld in pursuit, and battling a countdown to war, the two McClanes discover that their opposing methods make them unstoppable heroes.
This movie had me worried and not just by some reviews but also that the certificate was 12A (anyone under twelve could see this as long as an adult was with them) and this affected the action, language and claret...a lot!
John McClane's son is in trouble in Russia and is up for some serious sentencing, so John whisks over there quite sharpish and within minutes we are up to our necks in explosions, mobsters, car chases, helicopter gunships, backstabbing, uranium, CIA and bullshit!
Now some of the action scenes are quite good, some good father/son one liners and quips but everything is toned down because of the certificate, the script is a little over the fecking top, Willis looks too old for this shit now, some shenanigans and hardly a mark on him, me and I would be in traction for 2 months. The last movie pushed the believability stakes a little but this one kicks them in the crackers.
Entertaining but a popcorn movie without the butter, 3 STARS but by the skin of it's Russian teeth!
Another Reject highlight tomorrow!
