Film review: 'The Purge'

lasvegasweekly.com
5 June 2013
  • Excerpt: James DeMonaco’s new “home invasion” horror movie The Purge begins with an actual idea: In the year 2022, an annual 12-hour “purge” has been enacted. During this time, American citizens can do anything they want, legally, including murder. James Sandin (Ethan Hawke) has made a fortune selling security systems to the wealthy, and he prepares to barricade himself in with his wife (Lena Headey) and kids (Max Burkholder and Adelaide Kane) for this year’s event.

The Purge

Brutal as Hell
5 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Often times, the thing that makes or breaks a dystopian horror is its level of plausibility. Could we – honestly – foresee a scenario which at all resembles that which is depicted in our film? Is it all a little too close for comfort? It’s a fine line to walk though; too familiar, too everyday, and that note of alarm won’t be heard. Too improbable, and we won’t engage with it in the manner intended. The Purge, overall, manages to weave an effective dystopian yarn.

  • Summary: Hoe krijg je een maatschappij met extreem lage criminaliteitscijfers en een werkeloosheid van maximaal 1%? Stel een nationale feestdag in waarop mensen twaalf uur lang eigen rechter mogen spelen. The Purge is zowel walgelijk als spannend en gaat ten onder aan clichés.

  • Excerpt: Jeg liker utgangspunktet i The Purge , samme hvor søkt det kan virke. Men jeg liker ikke helt hvordan det utvikles videre. Regissør James DeMonaco kaster bort et interessant premiss ved å overdøve det med litt for velkjente sjangergrep. Innledningens futuristisk satire over samfunnsutviklingen, ender opp som nok en slasherfilm med husinvaderende pscyhoer.

  • Excerpt: Wat zou jij doen als één nacht per jaar alle misdaad volledig legaal zou zijn? Dat is het griezelige concept van ‘The Purge’, Hollywoods nieuwste visie op een enge dystopische toekomst. (Echt waar studio’s, we weten dat ‘Hunger Games’ het goed deed, maar straks worden we nog bang voor onze oude dagen!
