As far as Shittiest Sequels of All-Time Go, one can definitely make an argument for putting Live Free and Die Hard on the shortlist. It’s not just bad… it’s abysmally bad. Still, one can’t blame Bruce Willis. He received $25 million to make it and for that kind of money, I’d not only make a bad movie, but I’d do some really rotten, dirty, unforgivable things (then again, that might be because with my salary, that’d take me 625 years to make such money). Needless to say, Willis is probably received $25 million or more to do A Good Day to Die Hard. So, it’s hard to blame the guy.
That doesn’t mean he’s free from criticism. Because even though some people around the internet are reacting to this trailer far more positively than the last sequel, I was too burnt by the last one. Plus, it just looks pretty shitty. It doesn’t inspire confidence that the director, John Moore, is also known for shitty action movies, like Max Payne, Behind Enemy Lines, and Flight of the Phoenix. Also, the February 14, 2013 release date in the U.S. is a questionable one.
Are you a little more forgiving of this trailer? Or are you with me in thinking it looks pretty shitty?
