This is the first teaser trailer from the new Die Hard Movie ‘A Good Day to Die Hard’. My first impressions are good.
They seem to have taken into account how old Bruce Willis is these days and created a son ( Jai Courtney) to carry some of the action load. From IMDB I gather the plot is the father and son duo are taking on the Russian Mob, which explains the European setting of the trailer. I thought the shots of the token ‘hot Chick’ getting off her motorbike were a bit ‘Michael Bayesque’ but luckily were fleeting and you were back to the action. John Moore is directing the 5th film in the series and has some big boots to fill, I’m not filled with confidence by his last few films, May Payne, The Omen, Flight of the Phoenix and Behind Enemy Lines. I suppose those films were solid and he clearly has an understanding of action but I can’t help thinking the overriding factor for picking him was his price.
As much as I would like to see Hollywood creating some new action hero’s I will always happily pay to see another Die Hard film.
