Willis is as gritty and roguishly charming as ever, and Jai Courtney does a great job of reinventing the classic McClane persona for a new generation. His role also helps to balance out the lack of physicality on Willis' part. But for such a short film it continuously overstays its welcome. The enjoyable scenes are extended until you can't help but get bored or roll your eyes. The repetitive "here we go again" gag coupled with poor editing choices and even worse dialogue makes this movie much less entertaining than it should have been.
