The Purge - For 12 hours a year, all violent crime, including murder, is legal.
Not bad. Interesting idea/plot. Pretty short film overall, but then it's only supposed to take place over 12 hours. Kinda lame how the last 10 minutes or so of the film are given away VERY early on. Saw it coming a mile away.
The long-haired crazy kid definitely needed more screen time. Don't want to say too much else about the plot, in case there are some who have yet to see it. With a film like this, it's too easy to say too much.
I'd say if you are a fan of this type of film, it's worth a watch. It doesn't do anything amazing or groundbreaking, though.
Yeah, I watched The Purge recently as well. It wasn't that great of a movie, due to some contrived sequences. It was still a decent home invasion flik, though
Why the hell would the kid have the code?! Has nothing like this ever happened before in all the years the purge has been happening? Hard to believe. Then we have the boyfriend situation. He wants to kill the girls dad just because he doesn't want her to date creepy older guys? That's nuts.
The nutjob "kids" in the movie that invade their home: How are they able to lead normal lives the rest of the year? You can't be that crazy one night, and be an upstanding citizen the next 364. No way.
The movie was pretty disturbing from a home invasion standpoint. And just thinking about something like The Purge actually happening makes for an interesting conversation. I think most people wouldn't participate at all. But how many nutters are out there that actually would? I don't really know, but it's scares that there are those that would.
I actually DO want to see Anarchy, just to see the street viewpoint of it all.
