Actually, that's mean. Hudson Hawk wasn't as bad as
The fifth instalment of the Die Hard franchise is a perfect
lesson in flogging a dead horse. This movie has as much to do with John McClane & the first four movies as The Wizard Of Oz or Bambi does.
Here's a rundown of the films so far...
Die Hard- Bruce runs around an office building in a vest,
blowing shit up to stop some terrorists
Die Hard 2- Bruce runs around an airport terminal in a range
of sweaters, blowing shit up to stop some terrorists.
Die Hard 3- The vest makes a comeback & Bruce runs around
NYC with a script clearly written for the Lethal Weapon movies, blowing shit up to stop some terrorists.
Die Hard 4- Bruce & geek companion run around Washington,
blowing shit up to stop some cyber-terrorists
Die Hard 5- Bruce runs around Moscow, blowing shit up and
acting like a xenophobic arsehole because he wants to speak to his son.
This is amongst Batman & Robin and Superman IV: The Quest
For Peace as one of the worst sequels ever made. Avoid!
