Certainly not as bad as some are making it out to be.
I went into this one assuming that because of the title and the subject matter, it was going to be an indictment of the alt-right and incels, and random shooters, whoever else has been terrorizing society for many years. And let's be clear, it IS that, but more. This film is not leftist propaganda; it's a character study of one man in a subset of a subset of a subset of the alt-right. No, they're not all like this, but there are a few rare ones that are, and this film captures that, and captures it well.
I won't go after the other 1-star reviewers here who rated the film and then actually wrote a review of it without, obviously, having seen it. If they had seen it, they might not have left the ratings and reviews they have. That's my only quibble with them. We need to stop judging books by their covers (or movies by their synopsis and/or title), and maybe that's the message of this film. In a broader sense, living in this society now is exhausting. People are angry. People are fearful of those not like themselves. People are tired. That's all in this film too.
Yes, the Ronnie character IS over-the-top, and he's meant to be. The only thing, it seems, that people pay attention to these days, is the extreme of the extreme, and that's the point. I didn't expect it, but this movie's going to stay with me awhile. Give it a watch.
