Among the rare positive reviews, Robbie Collin for The Daily Telegraph remarked that \"Yet even though the ride finally stalls, A Good Day To Die Hard has been thrustingly outrageous enough in its earlier moments to coast to the finish line on momentum.\" Daniel M. Kimmel, writing for the New England Movies Weekly, found the film to be better than Live Free or Die Hard and states that the car chase scene \"is well worth the price of admission.\" With a 3.5/5 rating, Kimmel summed up his review saying, \"it's probably a good day to end the series at last, but it's an action-packed and entertaining finale.\" Rick Groen of The Globe and Mail criticized the action scenes as being \"messy\", but concluded his review saying that the film \"continues the franchise without undue embarrassment.\" Peter Howell of The Toronto Star remarked that Willis and Courtney made a strong estranged family duo and that the film had a nice drinking game routine going for it with how many times McClane exclaims \"I'm on vacation!\" during the running time.
I had a good time, although, as I said, this isn't really a Die Hard movie. Still, a fun action movie with good action and lots of action. A few fine twists and then it's pretty successful for me. Entertainment at its best.
Hans also has a good, but clearly dark sense of humor, and isn't afraid to make light of very dark and serious situations. This is furthered by his apparent jokey nature with Karl and Theo, two people he presumably knew well and liked. Even McClane often shot witty remarks back and forth either face to face or over the radio with Hans. The last thing Hans ever says, in fact, is a repetition of McClane's trademark phrase that he had jokingly coined over the radio earlier in the film. 59ce067264
