Movie was a disappointment. But, since I'm a completist, I'll get it at some point. I would like to see the Extended Cut though. Maybe it helps the movie?

I assume the commentary consists of Moore apologizing for an hour and a half.

I'm curious about the extended cut but I'll wait for reviews to find out if it's an improvement before I buy it.

How convenient! Timed 'perfectly'. After they cashed in on the 25th Anniv. edition, now they just happen to be releasing this? Anyway, I'm glad it's coming and will pick it up.... I knew they would do this, and of course didn't buy the repackaging of the first four films for this very reason.

Hoping the extended cut is 120 minutes.


Who am I kidding, it's probably 3-4 minutes of worthless scenes.

I'll wait till this hits Netflix. Looked like a steaming pile of shit; extra footage can't save that.

I'll pick it up eventually. I'm curious about the extended cut and didn't think it was as terrible as a lot of people made it out to be.

Agreed. Wasn't bad. I was entertained. Would be nice if the length is picked up some.

I kind of enjoyed this film. I'll pick it up once it hits $10 or below.

I'm guessing Moore's director's cut of Max Payne will be the template sans the need to add poorly rendered CGI gore.

I'll wait until it's dirt cheap, but am interested in seeing how bad it is.

Your impression is correct. It is a steaming pile of shit.

They're still making Die Hard movies?

In name only. Other than that Bruce Willis happens to star in it and his character responds to the name "John McClane," this one bears no resemblance to any other movie in the franchise.

I wouldn't go that far. My biggest gripe with the movie is that John McClane felt like he was taking the backseat to his son (Jack) for pretty much the whole film. Overall the film could have been better and isn't the strongest of the series but I thought it was watchable.

These are my exact sentiments. What a terrible, terrible movie. I can't believe Willis wants to pump one final one out. At this point I've lost faith they can even send the character out in style.

They couldn't even be bothered to shoot this one in scope like all four of the others. That's how lazy this is. Absolutely no one involved gave a sh*t about anything they were doing.

You could also wait for the box set that includes this.

I never got around to seeing this so I'll definitely rent it. I know it's going to suck but I will need to see it on principle alone.

This was one of those movies made almost solely for the international box office. It's made almost $300 million worldwide so far, there WILL be at least one more. Hopefully Bruce's heart will be in the next one - this one made it seem like he was fulfilling a contract obligation to FOX.

I agree with you. A Good Day to Die Hard is the Blade: Trinity of The Die Hard movies.

That's an unreasonably cruel thing to say about Blade: Trinity.
