I really enjoyed this edit. Die hard is one of my favorite film franchises. A Good Day to Die Hard was definitely at the bottom of the list. This is still not the greatest movie, but it is much improved and will go into my library and replace the original, which will never be seen or heard from again.
It is just personal preference I know, but the only knock I gave to this edit was for the New York, New York song added. It was perfect the way it started in the cab, it was also perfect the way it ended with the explosion. My issue was with the length, it seemed to go on and on. I think a trim in the middle would have helped.

I enjoyed it as when I watched the trilogy as a child.
I know this fifth installment of the adventures of John McClane is not the best accepted, but it worked well for me. The practical effects of this film are impressive and the story that editor Malthus developed works best.

- My only objection is the long duration of the music "New York", but the rest is perfect.

The editing is top notch. The visual grading is much better they the original and the score is now really fitting the picture like an epoxy mixture. The only thing I find it funny is the sound effects in the deleted carjacking fight scene. Other than that, everything's good. I enjoyed it.

One hell of a cut. I really liked the deleted scenes, specially the parking fight. The Frank Sinatra score in the courtroom was a great idea. I also liked the returns of Lucy McClane, I don't know why she was cut in the official extended cut. Her presence adds some kind of family reunion touch.

From all the Die Hard 5 cuts, this one is definitely the best to go with.

Another great edit from Malthus. My thoughts on the original theatrical cut was it was an average, the action was fine, the villain was pretty good and it was one of the more weaker die hard movies. This edit definitely upped my enjoyment of the movie by seamlessly integrating the deleted scenes, giving the movie much better colour grading and having better larger subtitles. The rescoring done was also top notch the "New York, New York" sequence which was just fantastic- really felt like an iconic moment. One nitpick I have though is the car park deleted scene in which the punching sound effects were a bit cartoonish like it was from street fighter- why the director or movie editor put those effects on the deleted scene is beyond me. Overall if like me you found Die Hard 5 pretty meh and want to revisit it for a die hard marathon this is the edit for you to replace the theatrical version.
