Do you want more plot details for A Good Day To Die Hard that involve Jack McClane?

A Good Day to Die Hard teaser header

So we've known about A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD for some time now, coasting along on the general information that John McClane would end up helping his son Jack attempt to survive a trip to Russia gone very wrong.  But what we haven't known is just what in the world Jack McClane was even doing in Russia to begin with, and how he seemed to be proficient when it came to kicking ass alongside his father in the various trailers.

Well wonder no more, for I have the answer.  Or, conversely, look away to avoid spoilers and keep on wondering.

Still with me?

Well yippee ki-yay.  So here's the deal: Jack McClane is actually an undercover CIA Operative.  Some of you may have keyed into this already with Bruce Willis' line in the trailer where he calls Jack ”The 007 of Plainfield, New Jersey.”  Plainfield, NJ is the home of the McClane and Gennaro families, and the rest is self-explanatory I should think.  From there, "CIA Agent Jack McClane meets his estranged father, the reluctant hero that is John McClane, in Moscow and who is apparently completely unaware how super-trained an agent his son actually is. Jack is so highly trained, that he’s deep undercover with Russian heavies who have their hands on some nukes, but once his cover is blown, both the younger and older McClanes are left with no alternative than to fend off Russian mobsters aplenty in unfamiliar territory."

And there you have it.  What do you think? Are you past caring at this point? Do you like it? Do you not like it but will deal with it anyway because you still hold out hope for A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD?

Whatever your opinion, the flick hits on February 14th, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: I don't care what anyone says (though I AM a bit sad about the PG-13 rating to which it hints) - "Yippee-Ki-Yay Mother Russia" is a f**king genius tagline.

That sounds like a good synopsis, that McClane doesn't realise how highly-trained an agent his son is, and that he may even be out of his depth compared to his son and he doesn't know it. I hope Jai Courtney and Bruce Willis play off each other really well. And I agree with the extra tidbit about "Yippie Kai Yay Mother Russia" - that's just clever!

Not clever or good.

Die Hard in name only. Just like the last mistake. It's motherfucker, not mother Russia.

But it isn't Die HArd...

To make a movie a sequel it has to have more than just the same actor playing the same character in name only. The plot elements have to be similar, there is no longer a guy in the wrong place at the right time as it has been in the past. If John McClain was a freaking supercop and now his son is supposed to be even more trained his son should be able to take on the whole world and win. It makes no sense in calling this Die Hard. They should have brought it back to John being alone, in a

Plot elements don't have to be similar for a sequel. There just has to be a continuation of the story. The plot could be completely different so long as it's a natural progression for the characters. That being said, I think this synopsis does sound like there are similar plot elements. John McClane IS in the wrong place at the right time in this one. He isn't nearly trained enough to be dealing with the "Russian Heavies." In fact, his presence is probably going to screw some things up,

The one factor that leaves me optimistic about an R rating is the fact that the movie is being released in February instead of summer. Live Free was PG-13 so they could better compete with all the other PG-13 (and under) summertime blockbusters. Being released in February gives an R-rated franchise film a much better chance of hauling in more money against less competition.

Sounds intriguing but can't help feel the movie will have a deus ex machina ending because Jack McClane being CIA is too convenient.

This idea keeps getting worse and worse! Live Free or Die Hard was awful and this looks to be terrible as well.

Its going to suck.

The only people defending this movie (which will obviously be PG13, don't kid yourself) are those who's first die hard was 3 or 4. They should have brought it back to reality, down to earth. No more crazy insane stunts like 4. Why is this not John on vacation on a tropical island with his daughter or whoever and it gets taken over by modern pirates. That sadly would be better and more die hard than this horrible plot.
