No, it has the "white man" refusing his humanity and wanting to be zapped into another body entirely and giving people the message that it's alright to just jump ship because a couple bad people who happen to be of the same species are doing bad things. It's glorifying the idea that it's a terrible thing to be human.

Woah woah woah, crappy? Homie has the two highest grossing films under his belt. He also co-wrote and directed Terminator, Terminator 2, wrote Rambo: First Blood Part II, Aliens, True Lies, and Spiderman. He's batting a PERFECT game.
Besides, what movie DOESN'T have re-occuring plot themes these days?
