Conservative Actor Beats Down ‘Antifa’ in New Movie About an America Where Guns Are Illegal

Once best-known for his iconic role as TV’s Hercules, in recent years Kevin Sorbo has forged a new identity as one of the few openly conservative actors working in Hollywood.

And if the trailer for his latest film, “The Reliant,” is any indication, Sorbo is embracing his role as a pro-faith, pro-America foil to typically liberal celebrities.

According to the A.V. Club, the film is based on a 2017 novel by the same name.

“When the dollar collapses, widespread rioting and looting threaten the peace of a family in Zanesville, Ohio. Eight children tragically lose their parents in the chaos,” reads a description of the book on Amazon. “The oldest, 19-year-old lovesick Sophie, is forced to care for her defenseless and hungry siblings in a stretch of woods surrounded by lawless anarchy.”

According to the trailer, in the alternate version of America depicted by the film, guns have been outlawed. The trailer also shows characters arming themselves with guns, dodging antifa-like mobs and fending off rioters.

One Twitter user described the movie as “Red Dawn but with Antifa.”

“After guns have been outlawed, Kevin Sorbo and his family fight their way through Black Bloc snipers, socialists on dirtbikes, and run over protestors in the streets,” quipped the Twitter account for the leftist Minion Death Cult Podcast.

The liberal reaction to Kevin Sorbo and his latest flick

In a Hollywood studio system dominated by progressive viewpoints, a movie that presents a right-leaning perspective can seem like a novelty.

Such was the tenor of the response from many liberal commenters on social media, who reacted to “The Reliant” by mocking the film for its arguably alarmist presentation of conservative bogeymen.

“Gosh. Sometimes USA culture is so weird for me that until the end I was not sure it was an internet parody or a true movie trailer,” tweeted French graphic designer Fred Boot.

“like 90% of this movies profits will be leftists eating handfuls of edibles and seeing it three times a day,” predicted one Twitter user.

Elias Cepeda, a columnist for Yahoo News, tweeted that the film would “make impotent incels hard, again.”

“The Reliant” will appear in theaters for one-night only, according to its website, on Oct. 24.
