Leftists are slamming a new Bruce Willis movie as a “racist” “commercial for the NRA.”

Opening this weekend, “Death Wish,” a remake of the 1974 film of the same name, stars Willis as Paul Kersey, a Chicago doctor who turns vigilante to exact his revenge on a group of men who murdered his wife and brutally attacked his daughter. Here’s a synopsis from RottenTomatoes:

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures presents director Eli Roth’s reimagining of the 1974 revenge thriller Death Wish. Dr. Paul Kersey (Bruce Willis) is a surgeon who only sees the aftermath of his city’s violence when it is rushed into his ER – until his wife (Elisabeth Shue) and college-age daughter (Camila Morrone) are viciously attacked in their suburban home. With the police overloaded with crimes, Paul, burning for revenge, hunts his family’s assailants to deliver justice. As the anonymous slayings of criminals grabs the media’s attention, the city wonders if this deadly avenger is a guardian angel or a grim reaper. Fury and fate collide in the intense action-thriller Death Wish. Paul Kersey becomes a divided person: a man who saves lives, and a man who takes them; a husband and father trying to take care of his family, and a shadowy figure fighting crime; a surgeon extracting bullets from suspects’ bodies, and a man seeking justice that detectives are quickly closing in on.

Sounds awesome, right? Leftist critics are hating on this movie, blasting it as “NRA-Agitprop” and white man “wish fulfillment.”

“Dangerously entertaining.”

It’s an argument for more guns!

And then there’s NPR’s take: “A film ruthlessly engineered to target the pleasure-centers of the most fearful and fragile cohort of American maleness.” NPR!

So with all the leftist hate for this film dragging the NRA into another cultural controversy, conservatives are excited to see it.

The critic score on RottenTomatoes may be a measly 15 percent, but 80 percent of the audience loved it so far. “Death Wish” opens this weekend. Will all the leftist hate turn out conservatives to see this movie?
