Probably the franchise’s best underlying concept, but the ideological conflict is a wasted opportunity to craft a more interesting philosophy for Harry. Without such underpinnings, the whole thing is doomed to stay at the level of (enjoyable) unfocused gun-nut badassery, unwilling even to go the distance into Hard-Boiled (1992) territory.
Some great facial expressions on Harry. Acting! Then, moronically explosive showdown. Surprisingly good bummer ending after that; society folds easily and the good die young, classic conservative fears.
