The Purge

High-Def Digest
18 October 2013
  • Conclusion: 'The Purge' could have been a great home invasion story and movie, however, its undertones and on-the-nose political and social commentaries drive this film right into the dirt.

The Purge

BluRay Authority
9 October 2013
  • Excerpt: There are certain movies out there that are destined to be hits. I’m talking Harry Potter and Batman or, essentially, any super hero movie. We know it and we accept it.  One thing that’s always fascinated me about the movie business are those little films that could.

The Purge (2013)

blu-ray.com
7 October 2013
  • Conclusion: The Purge paints with broad strokes and big ideas but remains too small, too implausible, too obvious and too narrow in its focus to do much good. It even fails as a home invasion pic, which is saying something since its genre bits are its best.

The Purge Blu-ray Review

BigPictureBigSound
7 October 2013
  • Excerpt: The Film Ethan Hawke has had some pretty steady work since 1985's Explorers . However, he's never really become a big box-office draw. Now, 2001's Training Day doesn't count. Um, Denzel Washington was in it, people!

Slant Magazine
21 September 2013
  • Excerpt: James DeMonaco's The Purge doesn't just pale in the shadow of The Strangers , an old-school spooker that understood that there's no greater horror than the unknown; it cringes in it.

The Purge

Cinema Blend
7 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Home Alone crosses paths with The Strangers and, of all things, Gareth Evans’ The Raid in writer-director James DeMonaco’s The Purge , a despicable, ugly and valueless exercise in hate, that purges all potential out of its interesting, original concept.
