John McClane travels to Russia to help out his seemingly wayward son, Jack, only to discover that Jack is a CIA operative working undercover, causing the father and son to team up against underworld forces.
Wall Street trader Will Shaw (Henry Cavill) races to rescue his family after they're kidnapped while vacationing in Spain, and he exposes a sinister government conspiracy and unearths dark family secrets along the way in this thriller co-starring Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver. Directed by Mabrouk El Mechri.
When Henry Cavill turned up on set, he had just finished shooting Immortals (2011) and came sporting an extremely muscular and ultra-ripped physique. Director Mabrouk El Mechri told him that he had to play an ordinary man and that his current body would be completely wrong for the character. Henry Cavill had to lose all the muscle tone and mass that he gained over the previous six months to get his body to look like that of an average man. He did it by eating and drinking a lot and not working out. See more »
Will and his dad Martin drive to an apartment to get a gun, they park the car that looks like a Seat MPV or something with 7075 GXF on the license plate. They get out and drive the same car away, but when they arrive to meet Jean Carrack, the car is an Audi SUV with 1892 GXA on the plate. See more »

I went to see this film after I saw an initial rating on here of 8 out of 10, but let me tell you it is very, very poor.
The film is littered with blatant product placement to the point that I thought at some points I was watching a slick advert. The first of these adverts is when the film lead stops to buy a drink of coke for no reason and proceeds to slowly drink it with the can taking up most of the screen, really just like an advert.
This was a little annoying but I kept hope that this was a small issue in what could become a very good film. Unfortunitly it didn't and car and phone adverts continued through the film. The script was poor and events unbelievable. Most of the action scenes you will have seen copied from Bourne or other action movies but made laughably similar but much worse. The acting from weaver was poor, although I am not sure if the blame lies with sigourney or the director. To be honest Bruce Willis is by far the best actor and carries the film for the first 20min giving some hope it will become a good action film, unfortunately it did not.
I have never walked out on a film but after a number of laugh out loud moments ( at the film ), I was seriously contemplating it. I may be wrong but i think we have a nomination for a rotten tomato award.
3 stars is being kind,
