  • Summary: A few people recommended this to me and I thought it sounded really interesting. Now I know I should never listen to those people again. To me it was just a boring waste of time. Now I realize I shouldn't be writing a review because I didn't really pay enough attention to tell you anything about it. Except that it was incredibly boring and that there's nothing captivating about anything in it.

  • Summary: The Purge, while trying desperately to take a different approach, is ultimately just another typical home invasion thriller. Poor storytelling, bad acting, laughable dialogue, and a weird ending. For what it is, the film begins kind of-sort of solid, but gradually gets dumber and dumber as it eventually gives itself over to senseless chaos and a stupid finale.

  • Summary: In the near future, everyone is a dick. Fear educated young people as they will break into your house and kill your family just because. Also, fear you neighbours, as they too want to kill you for petty reasons. An interesting concept mishandled. Could have been a lot better. Shift the focus off the murderous gangs to Lena Headey, the caring mother who just wants to get through the night, and you could probably tell a better story - but characters are for CHUMPS.

  • Summary: Disturbing plot. A few jump-scares but wasn't that scary. Obvious plot twists.

"Meh" Horror Flick Doesn't Fulfill It's Potential

  • Excerpt: The Purge suffers from a serious case of “stupid-it is,” and an even worse case of “not scary-it is,” but at least it’s entertaining. If it wasn’t for its ridiculous premise The Purge would be a dull as dirt slasher flick. The movie doesn’t know what the heck it’s trying to do (for a movie that’s apparently anti-violence, it sexualizes violence quite a lot) but I think that might actually be for the best.

  • Excerpt: The Purge (2013) R In the near future, all crime has been eliminated due to The Purge. It’s one night, where, in a twelve-hour period, anybody can commit any crime and get away with it. The Sandin family is set for the night, as their house is literally a fortress. But a stranger begs his way into their home and, suddenly, they are the target of some devious hit-men out to get the stranger.

Ein guter Horrorfilm braucht mehr als eine gute Idee

  • Summary: Ein guter Horrorfilm braucht mehr als eine gute Idee... und das was er vorallem braucht ist Spannung. Die ist bei The Purge zwar da, allerdings könnte es aufgrund der grandiosen Grundidee, meiner Meinung nach, deutlich mehr davon geben. Oft sind die unwichtigen Szenen zu lang, deshalb verliert man das Wesentliche aus den Augen.

Filmkritik: The Purge

Yopi
15 July 2013
  • Summary: Wenn Ethan Hawke und Lena Headey in einem 3 Millionen US $ Film, ja ihr habt richtig gehört, 3 Millionen US $ Film, spielt, in einer filmischen Dystopie – also eine fiktionale, in der Zukunft spielende Erzählung mit oftmals negativem Ausgang, im Film im Jahr 2022, wo kein bisschen Liebe oder unnötige Romantik vorkommt, muss der Film gut sein oder? Nun ich finde dass dieser 82 Minuten lange Film einfach nicht so gut ist. Warum?
