The Purge

Fragland
3 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Het is 2022 en om uit de economische crisis te geraken heeft Amerika radicaal het roer omgegooid. Er zijn nieuwe “Founding Fathers”, de economie draait als nooit tevoren, en misdaad is zo ongeveer herleid tot nul. De oorzaak van al dit moois? “The Purge”! Eén dag per jaar wordt gedurende twaalf uur alles ongestraft toegestaan.

The Purge

DVD Talk

  • Conclusion: I like the premise of The Purge , as it invites debate about the moral implications of a 12-hour window when all crime is completely legal. The film doesn't quite merit such a rigorous debate, and it suffers from an unconvincingly pedestrian midsection that fails to deviate from countless home-invasion thrillers. This world is ripe for exploration, but the film's limited budget keeps it grounded.

The Purge

High-Def Digest

  • 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. At least the video and audio presentations are top notch, but only one less-than-average extra doesn't make this the strongest release. I'd rent this before purchasing.

The Purge

AV Club
6 June 2013
  • Excerpt: The Purge is a B home-invasion thriller ladled with thick dollops of political allegory. Set in the near future, the movie portrays a quasi-libertarian America where, once a year, law enforcement and emergency services are shut down, and murder is decriminalized for 12 hours. Couched in the language of pop psychology and American exceptionalism, this so-called Purge is far from an equal-opportunity massacre; for the most part, it consists of the wealthy and well-armed...

  • Conclusion: A small-scale science fiction/action/horror picture with some smarts – but likely to confirm all your prejudices about gun-loving Americans.

  • Summary: If you’re going to watch a film with a premise as ludicrous as that of The Purge , you’re asked to be forgiving of its preposterous set-up and just go along for the ride. That’s fine, especially when said set-up involves a near-future America that reaps economic benefits from the yearly 12-hour kill-fest at the price of social morality, with the film focusing its themes into a simplistic home-invasion thriller.
