Now, typically I am anti-"It Was All A Dream!" endings but, hey, this was perfect. And it was perfect because it could at last wipe clean the slate of the "Die Hard" movies to follow. Oh, I suppose "Die Hard With A Vengeance" (1995) wasn't awful - maybe on part with "Die Hard 2" itself - but would you be willing to sacrifice the third one to cancel out the fourth and fifth? Yeah. That's what I thought.
|John? Where did the cigarette go?|
In "Die Hard" he did not speak with an art house whisper. He spoke with a Jersey annoyance. And in the trailer for "A Good Day To Die Hard", much like "Live Free Or Die Hard", he's speaking with the art house rasp, much more akin to Lt. A.K. Waters than John McClane.
Bruce Willis is no longer John McClane. John McClane is Bruce Willis.
