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

"During post-production, the distributor sought and was given advice on how to secure the desired classification. Following this advice, certain changes were made prior to submission This work was originally seen for advice in an unfinished form. The company was advised that the film was likely to receive a 15 certificate but that their preferred 12A classification could be achieved by making a number of cuts to both language and visuals. When the finished version of the film was submitted for formal classification, edits had been made:
  • to reduce the number of uses of strong language (both fuck and motherfucker) and
  • to reduce sequences of bloody violence, including blood sprays when characters are shot in the head, and punches to restrained individuals.
The formal submission was consequently rated '12A'."

So I guess we won't be hearing the signature line

It'll probably be like the last one, where the middle of the word was drowned out by something else (a gunshot, in that one)

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

I think the last one is the weakest, only because the plot was too "grand" for it to really fit into McClane pretty much just been the everyman in the wrong place at the wrong time. But here he gets involved in a national incident that'd likely have pretty devastating effects on things? It just really didn't seem to fit into the "Die Hard Universe."

I still enjoyed though but it had it's problems, also being PG-13 harmed it and the R-Rated/"Unrated" cut doesn't improve things. Just over LFaDH I'd put Die Hard 2 which also has some problems. Die Hard itself is obviously an endless classic and Vengeance is just pure awesome.

He had it at zero stars a few hours ago.

Guess he changed his mind.

Still, one and a half still isn't that hot...

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

You have to wonder how relevant rottentomatoes think they are, since the critics give it 14% and the nearly 27.5 thousand bum-on-seat reviews give it 82%.

I wonder how it would have fared with the critics had it not fallen under the Die Hard franchise umbrella.

We going to do an actual proper review thread since this was essentially the lead up thread? I'll start one.
