Even the henchmen only manage to impress on the action (and not the acting) front. Maggie Q has some impressive fighting scenes, yet is one of the main reasons of the above-mentioned credibility problems (I won’t ruin it for you, but trust me, you’ll see what I mean). The incredibly impressive French stuntman Cyril Raffaeli is the exception to this statement; although his inclusion in the cast seems to have been prompted by the jaw-dropping acrobatics ofCasino Royale’s Sebastien Foucan.
Willis obviously relishes playing the character that made him an A-lister. Yet McClane is no longer the foul-mouthed rebel of yesteryear. He’s toned down his tongue severely, which is fine by me, although it does detract in the yippee-kai-yay front.
Similarly, since Die Hard with a Vengeance, it seems McClane’s been getting by with a little help from his friends.. His trusty the trusty sidekick this time around, is a young hacker played by Justin Long who learns a thing or two about caring for others courtesy of McClane.
Compared to the Die Hard films so far, this one is slightly below part 3 but better than part 2, with the original still leading the pack convincingly. Nonetheless, it’s enjoyable to see McClane on our silver screens one more time, along with his fellow 80’s iconic actioners Rocky Balboa and John Rambo. Welcome back John… Yippee kayyay….
An enjoyable if unremarkable return to the world of John McClane. Hey, at least it's better than the second movie.
Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
