The screenplay is good and in the movie there are enough explosions and murders for a good action movie,
but its not as successful as the previous parts of this movie. The actors play their roles very great,
especially Timothy Olyphant and Bruce Willis plays their roles perfectly. In Addition, the sounds are good but the special effects are averagely. On the one hand this is definitely a good film for fans of this film series and a lot of action fans but on the other hand this movie don't fulfil the highest expectations.
