‘A Good Day to Die Hard'

Not yet reviewed; R. Look for the review in Friday's Living section

His pals Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone both flopped at the box office recently. Bruce Willis is the last hope of the 1980s action-movie stars, and he's going to try his hardest with this fifth installment of the smash franchise.

This time around, Willis reprises his role as action hero John McClane fighting the bad guys with a smirk — and a story set in Russia.

The good news: The series returns to R-rated territory, unlike the last film, which was PG-13.

The bad news: The director is John Moore, whose name does not get our hopes up (“Max Payne,” “The Omen”).

Also, shouldn't a good Die Hard movie come out during the summer?
