Die Hard sequel defies critics at UK cinemas

Thursday, 21 February 2013 - 8:01



Bruce Willis sequel A Good Day to Die Hard has topped the UK and Ireland box office chart, despite receiving a frosty response from critics last week.

But the fifth entry in the Die Hard series needed takings from Valentine's Day previews to knock Disney animation Wreck-It Ralph off the top spot.

Willis's latest action foray took 4.55 million pounds between Thursday and Sunday.

Critics poured scorn on A Good Day to Die Hard last week, with one reviewer dismissing it as "a limp parody".
