F*ckin cocksucker.

This will, again, NOT be a Die Hard movie. Just like "Part 4" was in no way a Die Hard movie.

Wtf happened between 1995 and now? How do the first 3 have all the swearing Die Hard fans crave, yet now it's pussified so much that it ruins the very franchise?

Die Hard only has 3 movies. I don't know what those other two are, but they aren't Die Hard films.

Won't be getting my money.

You would think after the outrage in the last one, you would just let the guy say Mister Falcon to completion one time.

I don't get it. Why do they think an originally R-rated franchise that's old and most popular with older guys needs to have a rating that allows kids to go see it unaccompanied? Who are the teens who want to see a new Die Hard movie? And how did this supposedly work well enough the last time that it's happening again?

PG-13 movies sell more tickets and for some reason the MPAA is more concerned about naughty words than violence.

Maybe it's not about teens going unaccompanied, but parents of younger kids deciding whether it's a good idea to take them to the theater and annoy everybody else rather than the more sensical choices of hiring a babysitter or waiting for it to come out on Netflix.  Each family of 4 is going to bring in like $50 in ticket revenue plus whatever absurd amount they charge for popcorn these days.

I would be excellent if John McClain is saying, "Yippe kai yay mother fu--"
And the line is cut off as he kamikazes into something during the climax.

Being rated PG-13 means they'll sell way more tickets to teenagers under the age of 17 than they'll lose from adults who are angry that they can't hear Bruce Willis say the word "motherfarker". I doubt they're worried about losing your ticket.

Alkoholiker:

As close as I can figure, at some point John McClain was possessed with the spirit of the Hindu demi-god Rama (7th earthly incarnation of Vishnu). It is the only way to explain the helicopter and jet scenes.

There's an R-rated version of 4 that's much better (ok, still no cure for OMG OUR WEBZ IZ DOWN and Justin Long).

If enough negative hype gets created about the movie being neutered, those teenager might skip it.

I'm going to go ahead and say that's not going to happen.

This one looks better than the last one (that's not saying much at all really).  I'm just hoping she gets some quality screen time:

Incorrigible Astronaut: There's an R-rated version of 4 that's much better


Still has that stupid taxi-helicopter scene, the fighter jet, the ridiculous "why isn't she dead yet" fight with Maggie Q, and Kevin Smith.  The R-rated version is more watchable, but is still a bad movie.  Not even Timothy Olyphant could save that one.

The MOST important thing is that the entire movie is, like ALL action movies released in the last few years, tinted orange and blue.

Because that's what audiences want. Everything tinted orange and blue.

Die Hard 5:

1st Act: 30 minutes of car chases on the Moscow highway.
2nd Act. 30 minutes of shoot 'em ups on the floor of a hotel.
3rd Act. 30 minutes of gun and helicopter play in Chernobyl. In T-shirts and Jeans.

Well, you've kinda summed it up. It's now a "franchise", a "brand". It's being run by accountants who will do the same shiat they did before, but aim to maximise profit. The golden rule with sequels is to look at what else the director has done. If it's a load of poop, he's a director for hire.

Precuts informationDuring 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

Note: The following text may contain spoilers
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 'f**k' and 'motherf***er') 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'.

Note: The following text may contain spoilers
A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD is the fifth film in the DIE HARD action franchise starring Bruce Willis as New York City cop John McClane. In this film McClane travels to Russia and joins forces with his son to foil a nuclear weapons heist. It is rated 12A for strong language and violence.
The film contains four uses of strong language ('f**k') and a partial use of 'motherf***er', the end of which has been cut short so the implied strong language is not heard in full.
Against a backdrop of explosions, car chases and the destruction of property, there are a number of scenes featuring shootings which occasionally show brief bullet impacts, but there is no focus on blood or injury. In scenes of hand-to-hand combat we see brief punches and kicks, impressionistic rifle butt blows and an implied, but unseen, neck break. Although there are some crunchy sound effects and incidental shots of the heroes with blood on their faces and clothes, no detail of injury is shown.
A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD also includes scenes of gun threat to the head and several brief shots of knife-blades as the heroes prepare to defend themselves. There are also passing references to 'doing drugs' and some mild innuendo.
No-one younger than 12 may see a 12A film in a cinema unless accompanied by an adult. No-one younger than 12 may rent or buy a 12 rated video or DVD.


Its normal for the BBFC to give advice on what it takes for a film to get a rating. For example the Hunger Games was a boarderline 15 (only 15 and above can watch in cinema or buy) but with a bit of CGI to remove some blood splatter it became a 12.

Now with the 12 certificate it makes it seem like decaf coffee.

They're afraid to make ANYTHING Rated 'R' nowadays. This is so bad that when a Rated 'R' movie comes out, they act like it's NC-!7 or something. I'm tired of them trying to nice up 'R' movies to make them family friendly. Keep the family movies family friendly, and keep the Rated 'R' movies rated 'R'. How farking hard is that? Not everything has to nail it in every market.

To me it was notable because it was the first movie I had scene where the hero gets thrashed and actually accumulates wounds that aren't magically healed in the next scene.   McClain gets dirtier, bloodier, and all around f'd up as the movie moves on.   By the time he limps into the climatic showdown, he is a brilliant mess.  So fun to watch.  The wisecracks in the movie are way above par, and Bruce's delivery was inspired.  A touchstone in cinematic action with or without that line..
