Stupid to a criminal degree

"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

I'm way too sensitive to these kinds of movies, I cried at the beginning and when the violence started. Mostly because there were people cheering in the audience, and all I could think was how someone could want to hurt let alone kill another human being. And then when I walked out of the theater, there were people saying how cool it was and that it should happen. I feel like a lot of people misse... 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."

"First viewing - May 25th After years of hearing that this series has gotten better over time, I've decided to finally check it out for myself. This is generally agreed to be the weakest entry in the series thus far, and if that's the case then I'm looking forward to seeing what comes next. I thought it was decent enough. Nothing earth-shattering, but nothing terrible either. I appreciated the ways it looked at how a handful of people would respond to this situation even if the social commentary"

"Fuck me, this is a dumb movie! Other people have already detailed how ludicrous the whole concept of the Purge is; even a sieve doesn't have as many holes as this plot! It's trying to make a statement about poverty by pretending it understands the criminal mind. But more importantly, the characters are complete morons! The invading party makes it clear that the family will be left alone if they just give them the guy they want, so why young Charlie insists on hiding the guy, risking killing the "
