The original Death Wish (which I love) was designed as right-wing propaganda. It basically shows how a liberal snowflake learns a hard lesson about how the real world works and thus gets himself a gun.
Of course the new "Death Wish" will have the same political message. As did every great 80s action movie. From "Dirty Harry" to "Commando", Golan Globus made sure that conservatism was front and center in 80s action. That's not the problem.
The real problem is that people today (from both sides) have lost their ability to enjoy works of art/entertainment for what they are, even if they push another political agenda. We don't need left-wingers complaining about "reactionary" action movies. But we don't need conservatives complaining about "liberal Hollywood forcing their agenda down one's throat" either. It's only a movie/TV series/song/album. Get over it. "The Birth of a Nation" is a masterpiece. As is Battleship Potemkin. Enjoy if for what it is and stop being such a pussy about the nakers disagreeing with your views.
