John McClane travels to Russia to help out his seemingly wayward son Jack, only to discover that Jack is a CIA operative working to prevent a nuclear-weapons heist, causing the father and son to team up against underworld forces.

A fellow Ultness crew member, Rawsheezy, and I have an inside joke about the Die Hard franchise.  The first film took place in Nakatomi Tower in LA, the second at a DC airport, the third was the island of Manhattan, the fourth was practically the northern east coast.  We logically predicted the fifth installment would be called “John McClane: Coast to Coast”.  Theater audiences would get to see  Bruce Willis kicking terrorist ass from Washington D.C. to Los Angeles (It all comes full circle if you think about it), where he meets and teams up with 24 CTU agent Jack Bauer.  “I’m done here, we surrender,” all the baddies would say while throwing down their guns.  Wouldn’t that have been a treat?  Well we were wrong, it turns out the cowboy cop is going international, f*cking things up in the former Soviet Union.  I don’t know about you, but I’m all for it.  Now that 20th Century Fox head executive Tom Rothman has stepped down, we can finally get our rated R Die Hard movies back.  Not that the Live Free Die Hard was dampened by its PG-13 rating, by Rothman’s interference, but it didn’t have the same impact when the lead protagonist couldn’t say his famous line “Yippie kay yay mother f*cker!”
