Dunno what all the whining is about, seems like a perfectly reasonable setup for an action movie.

Its success or failure will be in the execution, not the studio's ability to write a one paragraph synopsis.

But Pingfah, condemning films before they're made is an age-old tradition on the board.

you gotta love the internet, haven't you? wow, they've named a director and a writer and everyone starts nerd-raging before a single frame is shot...
Yeah, it's ridiculous.

Has anyone posted "I'm officially worried about this movie now?" Because if not I call dibs.

Why do people say "officially" like that anyway? It's not as if they've filed a memo to the effect.

My big objection is the cunty son addition. It sunk Indiana Jones (or helped anyway). People don't want or need it.

Re: Die Hard V - Not Looking Good...

^ The cunty son did exist in the original movie and the daughter didn't harm 4.0. A part of the McClane family being in trouble or danger has always been part of the series (apart from Vengeance), so I don't really view this as being akin to The Kingdom of the Numb Skulls. Nor do I have any problem with the set-up/ plot for the movie.

My main gripe is with the completely uninspiring choice of ultra-bland director and writer, a typically safe pair of Fox hands. However, if they prove me wrong and give us a truly great Die Hard movie, no-one will be happier to eat his words than yours truly.

Yeah it seems like a reasonable setup for an action film, just not neccesarily a Die Hard film, unless Russia's gonna be under siege from terrorists....

He can still kick ass without them belonging to terrorists, I don't see that it matters really. The specific inclusion of terrorists has no bearing on whether the film will be enjoyable or not.

It would be really interesting and daring if he was fighting off American Terrorists in Russia.

It's all about the execution, really. I mean, Die Hard and Under Siege have the same premise, but the Seagal movie is no match for Bruce's finest hour or two.

@ Aldo, technically, McClane has fought American terrorists in two of the movies to date.

Re: Die Hard V - Not Looking Good...

Yeah, I realized that after I hit submit, was just too lazy to edit it

Although fighting American terrorists on foreign soil could be a potentially new twist to the series. But judging from the brief plot summary we have, that doesn't appear to be the case.

Re: Die Hard V - Not Looking Good...

^Actually maybe even in three of the films since several of Hans' team are American.

Of course to destroy my own argument, as Hans says "Who says we're terrorists?"

I guess we haven't learned much about the actual plot beyond McClane and son fight Russians (maybe) but as different as they all are the Die Hard films do share the same DNA, they're all about something being taken over/taken hostage. In the first it's an office block, in the second it's an airport, the third is New York and the 4th is America. Be interesting to see what the hook of the fifth one is...I have a horrible feeling it'll just be McClane and Son vs generic band of hoodlums.

Hopefully the change of location will see the return of John McClane being out of his depth, I think the 4th one made him too super human.

Well, looks like that at least one baddie will be played by an American. Cole Hauser has joined the role in a pivotal supporting role as a bad guy. Not sure if he's a terrorist though. This will be his third time playing opposite Bruno, after Tears of The Sun and Hart's War.
