Fox Bringing A Good Day To Die Hard To Blu-Ray In June

Fox has announced John Moore’s A Good Day to Die Hard for Blu-Ray in June. The film stars Bruce Willis and Jai Courtney.

There are horrible movies like Live Free or Die Hard and then there are downright awful movies like John Moore’s A Good Day to Die Hard. The R-rated Die Hard sequel looked sort of promising after the PG-13 shit that Len Wiseman dropped on us. I mean, even the trailers were focusing more on the over-the-top action and corny one-liners than say a coherent story or plot line and that’s fine, because the Die Hard series has pretty much lost all of its credibility since the fourth film was released.

I was fully willing to accept Bruce Willis’ John McClane as the next Superman, despite the character originally being the complete opposite, but I got lost somewhere between a confusing scene in Chernobyl (right?) and the opening car chase sequence.

John Moore has absolutely no idea how to insert a pulse into any of his movies. Die Hard 5 is one of the most fun-lacking experiences to be had at the cinemas this year, which is painfully disappointing and downright confusing. How can someone mess up explosions and gun-play this badly?

Talent is obviously required when making action films, even ones of the lowest order. A Good Day to Die Hard isn’t even a so-bad-that-it’s-good kind of action flick. It’s just bad.

Our very own Jonathan Lack had this to say about the film in his review:

A Good Day To Die Hard is an ugly, crass and uncomfortably mean-spirited sequel that bears no resemblance to its predecessors, and while I am sure it will leave my thoughts for good quite soon, I now feel utterly sad and disheartened by how far this once entertaining series has fallen.
