Re: A Good Day to Die Hard (aka DH5): Grade, Review, Discuss---SPOILER
Getting into terrorist trouble by accident for the sixth fucking time? No.
Die Hard 2 was already stretching that.
Die Hard 3 ONLY worked because it was a revenge plot by a Gruber brother. There was an actual reason why the hell he was involved again.
The other films are total nonsense.
If anything, the 4th film should have had John McClane doing actual police work, getting into trouble that way.
But see that was it, he was a cop, it could have been the old LAPD guy with a rewrite, who got in the middle of criminals masquerading as terrorist. And standing in for the every-man we wish all cops were like that. It is part of the reason we want them armed when off duty.
