Has a great central premise in this annual 'Purging' event. The intent is not fully realized due to the movie focusing on a routine home invasion plot with an unlikable family at the center. A few tense moments surface after the enemies finally breach the strong enforcements, but it doesn't last very long. The ending leaves us with some questionable character motivations that sends a mixed message regarding the film's political agenda.

A night were a stupid kid that almost got he's family killed. The film follows a family during one of these periods as they must protect themselves from a home invasion. This movie had a good story but this movie kind of suck. I mean the acting is good but they is a kid in the movie that is really stupid.

A few people recommended this to me and I thought it sounded really interesting. Now I know I should never listen to those people again. To me it was just a boring waste of time. Now I realize I shouldn't be writing a review because I didn't really pay enough attention to tell you anything about it. Except that it was incredibly boring and that there's nothing captivating about anything in it.

The Purge, while trying desperately to take a different approach, is ultimately just another typical home invasion thriller. Poor storytelling, bad acting, laughable dialogue, and a weird ending. For what it is, the film begins kind of-sort of solid, but gradually gets dumber and dumber as it eventually gives itself over to senseless chaos and a stupid finale. There's some nasty kills for the blood hounds to enjoy, but other than that, save your time for a movie that isn't this mediocre. 2/4

In the near future, everyone is a dick. Fear educated young people as they will break into your house and kill your family just because. Also, fear you neighbours, as they too want to kill you for petty reasons. An interesting concept mishandled. Could have been a lot better. Shift the focus off the murderous gangs to Lena Headey, the caring mother who just wants to get through the night, and you could probably tell a better story - but characters are for CHUMPS. Instead, you get a home invasion, no likeable characters, some casual violence, masks and a cartoonish villain. Watch if you like that sort of thing, I guess.

Disturbing plot. A few jump-scares but wasn't that scary. Obvious plot twists. A movie that had some potential but failed
