The rule of diminishing returns bites hard in Bruce Willis's fifth outing as resourceful wrong-place-wrong-time New York cop John McClane. Trouble follows him to Moscow where, having come to his daughter's rescue in the previous film, he teams up with his estranged CIA operative son to thwart hordes of Russian mobsters and terrorists. McClane junior (Jai Courtney) is tasked with protecting an informant whose secret files could bring down an underworld kingpin, but believing his son is himself in imminent danger, dad once again has to break out the fists and firepower. Director John Moore lazily stitches together a series of shootouts, car chases and explosions with a confusing plot weighed down by too many double-crosses and implausible coincidences. Willis is also looking creaky in stunt scenes, and his once wisecracking character seems lost without the verbal sparring partners (either allies or foes) that were such a huge part of earlier instalments in the franchise.
John McClane goes to Russia having received word that his estranged son Jack is in trouble with the law. He is surprised to discover Jack is secretly a CIA agent, and father and son join forces to take on the Russian Mob, who are engaged in a plot to steal nuclear weapons. Action adventure sequel, starring Bruce Willis and Jai Courtney.
