It's like The Purge meets Red Dawn with all the violence, but none of the social commentary. It's pretty much a showcase of people shooting, blowing things up and trying to make sense of a new American Civil War. Yes, I have seen the enemy and it is us. Dave Bautista is badass, but bland for a leading man, while Brittany Snow is good at reacting to things and that's about it. The film does a great job of putting you right in the middle of this chaos without explaining anything (the opening is great!) but then is just continues to pile on the violence without really going much deeper. The only other thing I'm impressed by is that it doesn't go the easy way out with a happy ending and ends on a dire note. It's pure action, not much more.

Even Lucy's sister Belinda (Angelic Zambrana) thought the neighbors were playing "Call of Duty" all the time.

It's only when Lucy is rescued by Stupe (Dave Bautista), a concierge with a …
