A Good Day To Die HardReleased on February 14th 2 comments
One thing the first few weeks of 2013 have taught us is that no one wants to see geriatric action heroes trying to get their swerve back, no matter how big a star they used to be or how much Viagra it takes to get them up to the line.
Schwarzenegger and Stallone got harsh box office slaps for their latest efforts, and probably deserved them. Now we get proud baldie Bruce Willis trying to drum up excitement for a 5th “Die Hard,” as if the last two didn’t suck out loud.
Willis’ all-too frequent appearances on Letterman have become sadly desperate, as has his work on screen. The man has shamelessly released more than 40 movies since 1999’s “Sixth Sense,” and most were weak if not outright unwatchable. (“Sin City gets a positive nod.) He’s staking a claim in the realm of Deniro/Caine/Walken, former top-notch talent that refuses to give us all a break and retire. Or at the very least take a few years off.
D-5 might open to some business due to series recognition, but will then drop faster than gravity on a Kardashian.
Which means, it won’t be pretty.
