Die Hard 5 is a competent action film that’s crushed to death by its franchise’s baggage.
Stood alone, this tale of a wise- cracking, badass cop who flies to Russia to find his son (Jai Courtney) would be brainless, if derivative, fun.
But this is John McClane, and Bruce Willis’ delivery rings hollow in a fifth instalment that, while suggesting potential in the father and son dynamic, feels witless, weak and, worst of all, a mere echo of Die Hard’s fun, no-nonsense tone.
Blu-ray packs in an extended, harder (well, certificate 15) cut plus a bundle of featurettes. including one on colour grading.
