Once when i talked with my brother , we talked about Home Alone (first two movies with Macaulay Culkin, my bro said that Kevin was no better psycho than those two idiots who stalked him :D

Did you agree with that assessment?

True, but Kevin's actions and reactions to the burglars might have been presented to us as his point of view. In other words, the Kevin character might have exaggerated his actions and reactions as any child could. He saw the burglars as much more criminal and violent than the others characters (like the police) did. He also saw his own actions as super-heroic when they probably weren't that significant.

So, maybe we were treated to a movie which was presented to us from Kevin's POV instead of a neutral POV.

The only problem I have with him is that he didn't just acquire a firearm and kill the two

(I'm sure his ingenuity would allow him to find a firearm. Instead of his brother's BB gun, a parents' or other relatives' hunting shotgun/rifle in the least.)

If Kevin kill Marv and Harry that would be spoil the fun and send wrong message.

No he is not a 'psycho' he was trying to protect his family and his home, and also, himself.

What would've happened if the men who invaded their home caught him? Nothing good.
