A Good Day to Die Hard with Bruce Willis, Jai Courtney, and Yuliya Snigir
Well Sweetie and I had the best of intentions. You know the Academy Awards are coming up Sunday and I had Friday off and we have only seen one nominated movie. So lets go see Argo, everybody is going crazy over it. Okay we got to the line and I bought tickets to A Good Day to Die Hard with Bruce Willis. Hey, I didn't feel like doing anything good for me alright. Can't help it, I'm impulsive like that. And besides Sweetie didn't seem to mind.
So the story, who cares about the story. Bruce goes after bad guys, this time in Russia. Really bad guys. Take my word for it. He gets involved in a car chase, the bad guys are chasing his son, and Bruce is third in line. The bad guys have an armored vehicle that hip chucks BMW's and Mercedes out of the way like nothing. But they are smart, when Willis is after you, you best run, while you can. Bruce also takes on helicopter gunships, machine guns, atomic radiation. Everything the Russkies throw at him Bruce just laughs off. I hope that I didn't spoil the movie for you.
This is Jai Courtney, plays Willis's son. He does okay, but he is no Bruce Willis. He hasn't got anything that Bruce can't do one better.
This is Yuliya Snigir. She's no Bruce Willis either but I didn't mind. She has lots of talents that Bruce cannot do one better on. For one thing she is former professional chess player. Above is the first obligatory, totally unnecessary, cheesecake shot. The second obligatory totally unnecessary cheesecake shot is when a helicopter blows her skirt up around her waist. I am not going to tell you if she is one of the good guys or one of the bad guys but I will tell you that she has nice legs. I hope I haven't spoiled the movie for you.
So I give this movie five stars out of five. Don't worry, it won't be nominated for anything, but it is a good flick.
