Review
Remember on my E.T. review that I was planning to do a new review post of THE RETURN OF THE KING but tricked you all, April Fools! And I know that it's pretty funnier than the last joke about Jon Faverau directing a new THUNDERBIRDS film. This day, it isn't a review for the best LORD OF THE RINGS film, it's instead about the fifth recent Die Hard instalment. I know confused is entirely the word and I get that so many times in my daily life I've had, they're not as confusing as the plotting of A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD and this was the reason why critics became disinterested with this action film cause there are too many plot twists such as the revelation of the real villain in the story, it's so pointless. The gun-shooting and explosions are very spectacular and still stellar to fit this sequel and the father-son teaming up does seem to be good but not in this conclusion.

Overall, this sequel is a real average blockbuster and I was very in-anxious about A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD of not watching it and I ended up seeing the entire film. I just wish this feature would be better with only one single reveal of the main nemesis.

Star rating: (3/5) Average
