From time to time I ask myself this question; “Where do I see myself within 5 years?” Answer this question right now. Think about it and write it down. It is a powerful tool to see where you want to be within 5 years. It’s funny, people mostly overestimate what they can do in 1 year but underestimate what they can do in 5 years... @quotecap_ 📸 me two weeks ago at Lagos di Como

A Good Day to Die Hard (2013): It took 5 films but we finally have the first truly awful entry in the franchise. A Good Day to Die Hard stars Bruce Willis and Jai Courtney as father and son duo, John and Jack McClane, where John must save his arrested son from Russian terrorist. John McClane as a character is now dead and we get to see Bruce Willis play a generic action hero who just causes damage and kills people like it’s no problem, the core of the franchise is now gone. Charisma vacuum, Jai Courtney is just a bland younger replica on the new McClane with no resemblance of the original hero we all love. The story is just a generic political thriller with explosions - good guys must stop bad guys because reasons. It’s never really made clear who is doing what or why they are doing it which makes this rather bland film hard to follow but even worse... you don’t really care anyway. It’s blatantly obvious at this point that this was just a generic action script altered to fit into the Die Hard franchise - it’s a bad plot and the characters just aren’t there. The action is entertaining explosions and car crashes with invincible superheroes; nothing to latch onto, just watching pointless things happen. The film tries to deliver twists and shocks but honestly who cares? The characters aren’t likeable and we don’t really know what’s going on. As far as positives go, the action is entertaining over-the-top and the special effects are still decent but without any characters or story to grab the audience, it’s all meaningless... but that’s what you get when you hire the same director as Max Payne. If there is to be a new Die Hard film in the future, the new bar has been set to a new low and Willis looks like he’s done with this series now. A Good Day to Die Hard is where the series died hard. On the bright side... it’s 30 minutes shorter than the other four. Rating: 3.0.
