    Die Hard is not Die Hard if it's not Bruce Willis trapped in a single location (and no, New York doesn't count, Die Hard 3, even though you were a lot of fun and definitely get an Honorary Membership of the Real Die Hard Movie Club).

    4 was a mostly awful movie only made good in a few parts by Willis being flippantly McClane-ish, but it was mostly awful and not remotely close to being a Die Hard movie.

    I was in no way surprised to recently learn the Staggeringly Undertalented Len Wiseman was the director. I cannot understand how he keeps getting gigs apart from the fact that Crappy Big Budget Marquee Name Movies clearly make enough money to warrant his continued employment; it sure as shit ain't based on directorial panache and skill.

    Any Netflix library in the world for a couple of quid a month? Gimme!

    Fucking weaksauce

    The fifth film in the Die Hard franchise, the confusingly named A Good Day To Die Hard, has been given a 12A rating by the British Board of Film Classification, even though it was classified as an R over in the US.

    You can read the BBFC's guidance below, but be warned in advance that it contains the words "mild innuendo".

    "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."

    A few notes from our end. A partial use of motherfucker? If the word motherfucker is going to be used in a Die Hard movie, chances are it'll be said after the words "Sniff my cheese!" "Yippee-kay-yay" so expect that catchphrase to be more muted than previous instances. Also, as previously hinted at, "mild innuendo" sounds more Carry On than John McClane. Sad, but true.

    A Good Day To Die Hard will motherf***er its way into cinemas on February 14.

    You dare to strike Scurrcules!?

    Are there any proper reviews out for this yet?, early buzz seems to suggest its good (better than 4.0 anyway) but looking for some official confirmation from Empire, Total Film, etc.....

    I have just seen this on the Empire website myself. I'm a bit disappointed. What the fuck happened here?

    It's like they put Deputy Police Chief Dwayne T. Robinson in charge of the situation.

    I barely remember 4.0. The only thing that really stands out is when Willis gets attacked by a CGI jet fighter. I also vaguely remember a CGI helicopter doing something or other.

    Wait, so is it heavily edited in the UK?

    Or is that seriously what merits an R rating in the states?

    Len Wiseman is a top guy and pretty talented.

    I met him once (didnt get to meet his wife though sob sob) and he genuinely is a top bloke.

    All his films in my eyes have been okay.

    remember though Len Wiseman was hired to direct Die Hard 4.0. He didnt write the script or the screenplay. He was just the director and I though he did a pretty good job with it.

    For what its worth I also enjoyed the 2012 Total Recall too.

    Seems it was going to get a 15 and Fox recut it for a 12A.

    I bet we get the "exclusive uncut Blu-ray" marketed at us at some point.
  • Deleted user 11 February 2013 14:24:29
    Having seen A good day to die hard, I can confirm the violence is on a par with Die Hard 4.

    Die Hard 4 hate it or not made a lot of money, so Fox were always gonna go down the same route with the sequel.

    They probably edited it to get the 12a here. In the states if a film is an R kids can still go with adults so I guess they don't lose the 'young' crowd but here they want the kiddies to get in.
    As if anyone under 15 gives a fuck about Die Hard anyways!

    Esp; does the BBFC blurb tally with what you saw or did your version have the full Yippie Ki Yay line?

    From the BBFC website for the film

    "Precuts information

    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"

    Are we honestly concerned about the artistic integrity of fucking Die Hard 5??

    Yes.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

  • Deleted user 11 February 2013 14:34:44
    Violence was cartoon like, big explosions hardly any blood or language.

    Die Hard was an adult thriller. Now its a teenagers wet dream, F35 in Die Hard 4. Mi 29 Hind Gunships in 5.

    The best I'm hoping for is an entertaining action flick. I expect there will be plenty of property destruction.

    There's also no need for it to be set in Russia. No need to have his kid in it. It's got to have a better plot and baddie than 4.0 though.

    Oh noes. A film that has constructed by film execs for no reason other than to get bums on seats has been further meddled with by film execs to get more bums on seats. It's the end of cinema.

    Just get a sample of him saying his catchphrase and listen to that on repeat. If him saying motherfucker a couple of times means that much to you then there's something wrong with you.

    The lack of swearing isn't why 4 was shit.
  • Deleted user 11 February 2013 14:38:50
    Guess the reason willis has seemed so pissed off with interviews this week is the fact hes seen the film and was not impressed apaprently.

    So now begins 3 months of promos for him for a film even he thinks is shit.

    Its on a par with 4. If you liked 4 you will like this.

    I liked 4 the first time. Probably because I really wanted to like it. The second time highlighted just how poor it was, a few scenes aside.

    I've only seen it once and I quite enjoyed it. Probably shouldn't watch it a second time then..

    Still never seen 4. I did see a little bit on TV the other night though, and it didn't really seem to have much to do with Die Hard. Police cars flying through the air and crashing into helicopters isn't what I associate with John McClane, but in the five minutes I saw that's what happened. I switched over at that point.

    Then again, 2 and 3 were both shit too, so it's not like it's ruining a classic franchise or anything. Easy enough to pretend the first one has nothing to do with any of them.

    Is 4 the one with the kid from the Apple ads? I've lost track since they turned into generic turds.

    I tried that; worked, too, until it was on telly the other night and I heard the announcer mention it and it all came flooding back.

    That stunt is so ludicrous it's my favourite bit. It kind of is the sort of thing John McClane would do (if it was quite easy to pul off) just because he's got that sort of Fuck You Terrorists attitude.

    But the rest is so meh.

    @ronuds Yeah, I thought it was the kid from Suburbia and those soft-porn Megan Fox films, but yeah you're right it's that other kid. Something Long. Jason? Jonah? John? James?

    /googles

    Justin.

    The Suburbia kid showed up to ruin Indy 4, I think.
