Open Letters Monthly: A Good Day to Die Hard

For those of you that have clamored for it, the ultimate blue collar hero has returned. John McClane travels to Russia in A Good Day to Die Hard, the fifth installment of the franchise that started twenty-five years ago and has seen our hero face a multitude of cartoonishly deadly villains.

This time it's about family as McClane visits Russia to try and help his son Jack, who has been arrested and faces life in prison. Little does he know that his estranged son is actually a CIA operative, tasked with rescuing a political prisoner and escaping with a file incriminating a high-ranking government official. Everything goes south when McClane arrives on the scene, and soon father and son must team up to prevent a major terrorist plot from coming to fruition.

A Good Day to Die Hard is directed by John Moore and stars Bruce Willis, Jai Courtney, Sebastian Koch, Yuliya Snigir, Cole Hauser and Rasha Bukvic.
