Rick appears to be a gun enthusiast, yet he fires two warning shots into the air at different times. Any trained shooter knows that doing so is a waste of ammunition, and it's also dangerous since the fired round will come down and could cause injury or death. In both circumstances he could have legally used deadly force. See more »
I really did want to like it. I support the messages of belief in a higher power, and active self protection. But the delivery was awkward and ham-handed and had all the goofiness of the After School Specials that made religion uncool in my youth.
This movie was a blatant product placement scam. It attempts to appeal to our visceral beliefs by bypassing our intellect. The message was "Buy guns, and concealed carry insurance, because.... G-d."
In case the fear of roving bands of armed looters wasn't enough to send you running to your local (or online) sporting goods store, they also threw in a line about fighting tyranny. OMG. That just makes no sense. If there had been a tyrannical government, it would have squashed the uprising. That's what tyrannies specialize in. But the director couldn't resist throwing in one more dog whistle catch phrase.
But don't worry. We will remain G-d fearing gun owners in spite of this movie.
