Die Hard 5.5: Just Die Already
30 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

Olympus Has Fallen was a dumb mindless action movie, and as a dumb mindless action movie, it was great fun. It had some insane fight scenes and a silly plot with Gerard Butler kicking all kinds of ass without getting a scratch on him. It was basically what Die Hard 5 should've been. One thing it didn't need was a sequel, but here we are with London Has Fallen, one of the dumbest action sequels to ever grace the big screen. Everything about this movie is wrong. The plot is garbage - a bunch of terrorists blow up a crapload of stuff to kill world leaders attending a PM's funeral in London, and of course Gerard Butler is there and he has to save the day. It could've been another mindless fun action movie and that's what I was hoping for, but the faults in London Has Fallen are too glaring to ignore.

The script is dogsh*t, and that's putting it lightly. Some of the worst one-liners ever spoken are in this movie. "Glad you finally came out of the closet," after the president comes out of hiding to save Gerard Butler's life has to take the cake. It's funny, yeah, but not in the intentional observational way but in the ridiculously out-of-place cheesy way. Pair that with really lazy action sequences and a plot that goes absolutely nowhere and you have Die Hard 5.5. It's essentially the same movie - Gerard Butler is invincible, he never misses a shot and dodges waves of bullets without moving a muscle. It's unbelievable to the point of stupidity. And it's not the entertaining kind of action either. It's just throwing crap at the screen to distract you from everything else.

Morgan Freeman, Colin Salmon and Jackie Earle Haley are in this movie, God knows why. Complete waste of talent. Gerard Butler already proved he can be an action star but there was no moments to shine here. It's just an invincible dude running around London killing everybody and acting like a sarcastic douchebag to everyone including the president. The villains are awful. They're just Arabs, literally, no development whatsoever. The hero is an asshole so there's no one to root for. It's usually at this point where I say something positive about the movie, but there is absolutely nothing. The only reason it's not a 1 is because I did laugh a few times at how terrible the script is. But there is no conceivable reason for this movie to have been made, and there's even less reason to watch it. Die Hard 5 is better than this piece of crap and that's saying something.
