Advance Auto Parts - Die Hard is Back

by Syd Briscoe


Advance Auto Parts: “Die Hard is Back” - 2 mins

There's a germ of a great ad in this Advance Auto Parts film. All the components are present: beloved franchise, Hollywood A-lister, potentially explosive action scenes ready for a glossy finish. However, this two-minute edit feels flabby and off-pace, with an unfortunate shot of Bruce Willis limping his way through a scene driving home just how old John McClane has become. Hopefully there's a properly edited director's cut around to salvage what could have been top notch.
