Yeah I've read it's pretty bad. Frankly I enjoyed the 4th one...it was better than the 2nd one at least. I think most people hate it because it wasn't R. My main problem was that they made John basically indestructible to outrageous levels, but it wasn't a terrible movie or anything.
I'm glad I checked reviews just before seeing it. I met with a group of people for dinner and some branched off to see this and others went to Dave & Busters. My original plan was Die Hard, but the reviews plus finding out it was $15 to see it versus the $10 I was used to made D&B and easy choice.
Haven't been to the movies for like 2 years. Was actually excited to go see this tomorrow with some friends. Is it really THAT bad?
Just check out Rotten Tomatoes. Surprisingly, people who seen it have given it good reviews while the critics hated it. Not sure I've seen such a discrepancy of reviews from critics to the general audience.
