Tries a bit too hard to incorporate current events into a horror film about making all crime legal for 24 hours. In this case, it's held on Staten Island as an experiment - but there is plenty of references and visuals to the alt-right, Trump and other related content that feels pretty much spot on - but still kind of random for a horror film. Its a bit politicized for my enjoyment but I guess if you've watched the other Purge films, this one will satisfy.
