I absolutely adored him in The Sixth Sense, he not only stole the show in Armageddon, but I feel he made the entire film, and in my opinion, he gave a whole new meaning to the word action film in 2012 when he starred in The Expendables 2. To our long time viewers, you all already know that I am a true Bruce Willis fanatic and will always be. That said, I think we can all agree that of late, his films have not been even remotely close (yes I know there are exceptions, such as Acts Of Violence) to what they used to be. I just feel he has gone too commercial, soft even and as such I have not been overly excited about his new releases. That said, wow, wow, and WOW, this absolute work of divinity directed by the king of car chase scenes himself Eli Roth and meticulously put together by Wendell Mayes, Brian Garfield who did the original novel and of course never forgetting the master of intricacy himself Joe Carnahan. As any true action fan will know, the premise of this production is in perfect alignment with the 1974 classic starring the exceedingly charismatic Charles Bronson. Be that as it may, it does definitely bring along with it some of the Old Die Hard fire, thankfully. To be completely forthcoming with you, I loved every aspect of this film, the cast itself took my level of amazement to stratospherically new heights when I noticed that both Len Cariou as well as Ronnie Gene Blevins are in the same production. How did that even happen? The stunt work was simply exceptional, very old school with minimal, if any CGI and very originally done. While we all know the story is about an ordinary man, that is forced to become extremely extraordinary when an awful team of villains intercept a family communion and harm his beloved wife and kids. The way the remake as been put together gives it a very new age feel, yet with that typical vintage level of shrewdness and dexterity. Massively entertaining, monumental choreography and stunt work, but most of all, what a treat it was seeing the old "John McClane" at it again!
