About the Movie
Yippee Ki Yay, John McClane is back, this time with his son and twice the excitement. Keeping audiences on the edge of their seats for 25 years, the latest chapter of the popular action franchise delivers the thrills and the ultimate father-son action duo as A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD debuts on Digital HD on May 14 and on Blu-ray and DVD June 4 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Featuring a double dose of McClane power, the film will also be available as an “Extended Edition” with over two hours of extreme bonus material just in time for Father’s Day.

Bruce Willis is back in action — mind-blowing, heart-stopping, rip-roaring action — as John McClane, the heroic New York cop with a knack for being in the wrong place at the right time. John’s latest predicament takes him all the way to Russia to track down his estranged son, Jack (Jai Courtney), who has been imprisoned in Moscow. But the mission takes a deadly turn as father and son must join forces to thwart a nuclear weapons heist that could trigger World War III!

Twenty-five years after the classic thriller Die Hard was released, A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD takes the action to a whole new level with the 2-disc Blu-ray Extended Edition featuring over two hours of intense extras. Between the Anatomy of a Car Chase, an hour long behind-the-scenes documentary that looks at the making of the movie, commentary with the Director and deleted scenes, the Blu-ray proves that two McClanes are better than one.

My Take on the Movie
This was an action packed movie that will make you sit on the edge of your seat from beginning to end.  This is definitely a Die Hard movie and such be ready for action and violence, but what else would you expect from John McClane. There is definitely some drama placed in this too as you see try and deconstruct the complex relationship between father and son. Bruce Willis continues to do a good job in his role and there are plenty of others that also do a great job in the movie too. I have to say that this movie was non-stop action from beginning to end so get strapped in for a ride you will not forget!
