By all accounts, A Good Day To Die Hard is a terrible movie. But the stunts, well, there were a lot of them and they cost a fortune. Director John Moore decided that when it came to smashing expensive vehicles, it was time to go big or go home.
In one sequence, a Lamborghini bites the dust. In another, a Mercedes Zetros Unimog heavy truck. Several Mercedes G-Class wagons met an untimely end, and Moore also blew up a string of BMWs in sequence. In all, 132 cars were completely destroyed and 518 damaged during filming, at a cost of more than $11 million.
So even if Moore failed to make a movie worth watching, he probably broke a record for the most vehicles destroyed in filming. It'll be great when someone takes the good parts — the destruction scenes and nothing else — and threads them together into a one glorious orgy of obliteration.
