Excerpt: The concept is brilliant, the effect totally failed. I expected much more from this film, but against all odds, it was just a flabby fuss about nothing.You can hardly call it a thriller as I wasn't biting my nails because of any tense moments. It wasn't horror either, not even by a long shot.
Summary: The Purge brought to the table a creative idea - a 12-hour law-free timezone that allowed people to break whatever laws they wanted, including murder - and then ruined it by creating a focus that didn't make sense.
Summary: A night were a stupid kid that almost got he's family killed. The film follows a family during one of these periods as they must protect themselves from a home invasion. This movie had a good story but this movie kind of suck.
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.
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.
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.
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.
