^ On that we are agreed.
I don't hate 4, I just thought that Len Wiseman's direction was lacklustre and bland; I remember watching the scene in Washington where McClane climbs on top of the taxi to see the chaos around him and thinking how much better McTiernan would have done it. And McTiernan really created a good ensemble in both his movies - the NYPD crew in DHWAV were way more interesting than the supporting cast in 4.
Moore and Woods just strike me as being from the same bland, generic unexciting safe-pair-of-hands stable as Wiseman. They're not Uwe Boll by any means, but they're like Brett Ratner or Brock Eisner. They're just - there. That's it.
