The Rock version of Walking Tall raises ethical problems

This remake of an earlier film is an exciting, action filled grade B film. A Special Forces soldier returns home and finds that the town's manufacturing business has been closed down and replaced by a gambling establishment that cheats its customers by switching dice. The town sheriff is controlled by the casino owner. The soldier fights against the owner and his thugs with just one friend and succeeds.
The film raises an interesting question to viewers who pay close attention to what the soldier does. While most viewers will applaud his actions, as the town people do, the actions are without exception violations of the law. For example, he breaks the tail light of the casino owner's car in a churlish fashion, he destroys a large part of the casino and batters many of its employees, he and his friend beak all the machines in the shop of a confederate of the owner, he beats up this confederate to get a confession, he allows the confederate to be killed to scare him to get information when he could have saved his life. Should the soldier have acted as he did? Should we applaud him?
