Been a while, but I think he only really shoots one person (a neo-Nazi) in that movie.

He also fires a missile, in a scene that I think they should have left out. Otherwise, it is a fascinating movie.

He does terrorize the people at that fast food place as well, but he doesn’t actually hurt anybody there.

It’s an excellent film, but one that is very easy to misunderstand.

Indeed. Forrest (the neo-Nazi) gets himself killed because he mistakes William Foster (Michael Douglas’ character)’s beliefs for his own. But while Foster is enraged and lashing out at what he feels is his being thwarted in life and cheated out his part of America’s promise, Foster’s demand is for what he sees as the fairness he thinks Americans should receive. His loyalty to his country and its principals is still extant, and he understands that Forrest’s Nazism remains the enemy of what Foster holds to be important. Despite his suffering and rage, Foster retains (just) enough faith to reject the totalitarian temptation.

The wife’s statement that her ex had no compassion seems to be confirmed by what he just did. (asterisk—-technically, what authorities say they think he just did.)

re: #5 Dark_Falcon

Murder is murder, even of a Nazi. What do you think he would have done if someone tried to escape that hamburger joint? That’s right, he would have murdered peaceful people (or his journey home would end right there and then). Or do you think he cared about the construction workers’ lives when he fired that RPG? He’s nothing but a preachy cold-blooded murderer. The Nazi was right - they’re the same.
