"Decriminalised Murder. An outlet for American Rage."

There's nothing worse than watching a motion picture completely waste a brilliant premise. 2013's The Purge is one such movie. It's built on a marvellous idea that could've made for a mature and thought-provoking examination of contemporary society, but writer-director James DeMonaco has no interest in a quality motion picture, i... read more

Let me begin by saying that The Purge's box office success reveals far more of the bloodthirsty anarchism that lies barely dormant in today's society than establishing it's viability as a well-crafted film. Now this assessment might seem a bit harsh to some, especially if this film was well-received by you but let me state my case and you be the judge.

The film's premise is more th... read more

" - Rewatched THE PURGE takes a very interesting premise and does very little with it. Instead of using its idea to explore how this purge is actually working, we're just left with a silly home invasion film that does very little new in terms of filmmaking. "

"No se cuantos errores evidentes tiene esta pelicula pero el principal y mas grande de estos es su premisa de "Una ley que te deja asesinar por 12 horas" la cual la pelicula demuestra que esta llena de incoherencias en repetidas ocasiones."

" I liked this movie because it's a good discussion topic. What if...? Can you imagine? There were parts of it that surprised me and there were parts that didn't. Mostly, I think it was an original idea that was decently executed. I think my favorite character was the Polite Leader. I enjoy characters who use more words than they need, especially in an eloquent way. Yeah, this was definitely cool."
