    As Rambo he always liked to draw First Blood. And Sylvester Stallone channelled his famous character as he launched an astonishing attack on fellow ageing action man Bruce Willis. Moments after announcing the Die Hard favourite was being replaced by Harrison Ford in the third film in his Expendables franchise the 67-year-old branded his former colleague 'greedy,' 'lazy' and a 'failure.'
  • 'A Good Day to Die Hard' review: Yippee-ki-whatever (1/2 star)

    Red Eye Chicago ^ | 02/13/13 | Matt Pais
    Well before John McClane (Bruce Willis) calls his CIA operative son Jack (Jai Courtney) "007 of Plainfield, New Jersey," "A Good Day to Die Hard" already feels more like a Bond movie ("Die-monds Are Forever"?) than what it is, "Die Hard 5." Or is it "Terminator" or "Taken" or ...? Following the example set by the moronic "Live Free or Die Hard"--which only got worse by casting Justin Long as the personification of a yippy dog--"A Good Day to Die Hard" now depicts formerly relatable cop McClane as an indestructible force. He survives the unsurvivable and smells trouble before there's...

    You gotta love Bruce Willis. He is an awesome actor, and has a good head on his shoulders. Unlike the majority in hollywood: BRUCE WILLIS is fed up with listening to outspoken actors - and believes their opinion shouldn't mean "jack s**t" to the general public. The Die Hard star understands some of his colleagues want to do good for various causes, but wishes others would keep their thoughts to themselves. He says, "I don't think my opinion means jack s**t, because I'm an actor. "Why do actors think their opinions mean more because you act? You just caught...

    Colombia's ambassador to the United States is criticizing Bruce Willis for comments he made during a press conference to promote his new film, "16 Blocks." The actor said the United States should consider "going to Colombia and doing whatever it takes to end the cocaine trade." In a harshly worded letter made public, Andres Pastrana told the actor that the source of the lucrative cocaine trade was an "enormous appetite for drugs, in particular in the United States and Europe." Pastrana, who as president in 2000 launched an anti-drug effort with billions in aid from the United States, added that...

    BOGOTA, Colombia -- Colombia has it in for Hollywood's ultimate tough guy. Andres Pastrana, the country's ambassador in Washington, scolded actor Bruce Willis on Friday for suggesting that the United States should consider invading Colombia as part of its war on drugs. At a media event in New York to promote his new film, "16 Blocks," Willis said the United States should weigh "going to Colombia and doing whatever it takes to end the cocaine trade." Willis' comments, on screen and off, have landed him in trouble before. But this time his remarks have irked normally stone-faced diplomats. In a...

    Bruce Willis, famed action hero and one of a handful of Hollywood patriots, is gearing up to make and star in a movie about some real-life heroes—American soldiers risking and giving their lives in the continuing struggle in Iraq. The film is to be based on the heroics of the Deuce Four, the 1st Battalion, 24th Infantry, which has seen plenty of action fighting vicious killers in the infamous northern Iraqi terrorist stronghold of Mosul. In Willis’s movie, U.S. soldiers will be portrayed as courageous and honorable, and their cause as noble—a matter of course during World War II movies,...

Distinguished guests flew in to attend what was officially called the Redeployment Ball. I flew from Iraq and stayed in the beautiful home of Command Sergeant Major Robert and Sandy Prosser. A clear stream runs through the Prossers’ backyard, and the salmon would soon be swimming up to spawn, trailed by the Bald Eagles that sometimes perch high in the trees above the stream.
