"A Good Day to Die Hard" (2013) is the fifth installment in the "Die Hard" franchise, which also includes "Die Hard" (1988), "Die Harder" (1990), "Die Hard with a Vengeance" (1995) and "Live Free or Die Hard" (2007).

Bruce Willis reprises his iconic role as police detective John McClane in the new film set against the backdrop of deadly corruption and political vendetta in Russia. McClane arrives in Moscow to track down his estranged son, Jack, (Jai Courtney), and is stunned to discover he's working undercover to protect a government whistleblower, Komarov. With their own necks on the line, the McClanes are forced to overcome their differences in order to get Komarov to safety and thwart a potentially disastrous crime in the most desolate place on Earth — Chernobyl.

When McClane learns the truth about his son's profession, he calls him the "007 of Plainfield, New Jersey." But it's a long way from Plainfield to Moscow, and John and Jack are about to have a family reunion they will never forget.

It is now 25 years since Die Hard exploded into theaters, launching a new cinematic hero, John McClane, and changing the paradigm of action movies. McClane is identifiable and relatable. An ordinary man forced by circumstances to attempt an extraordinary task. That is what separates him from the comic book heroes of most action movies, and has made McClane one of the most popular characters in film history.
