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