Mixed Bag

The premise is really great for a horror movie. Society has one night a year where all crimes are legal. One family has to survive that night. The acting is pretty good. Ethan Hawke and Lena Heady both do a good job. I also think the main villain is very entertaining. My only real issue is that I found the main character's family really annoying. They are in a very dangerous situation and they contribute nothing constructive. I was getting annoyed for him. Now I think about it, the one upside to this purge concept is that on that night you could beat your wife and kids as much as you like. (: ))

The Purge

Short and Simple Review by WubsTheFadger

First off, this film could have been amazing. The plot and premise are very original and had a lot of potential. But sadly, the story is full of clichés such as stupid teenage kids, bad decisions, and clueless villains. If they had only made the film in a way that we could see multiple Purge stories, it would have been better. The ending is the probably the best part of the story.

The acting is okay at best. Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey perform the best. Max Burkholder and Adelaide Kane play two of the most annoying, stupid, and idiotic characters I have ever laid eyes on.

The film starts off very slow and continues to have slow pacing until the end.

The blood and gore aspect of the film is very good. This is one of the highest points about the film.

Pros: Very original story, the ending, good acting from Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey, and a good use of blood and gore

Cons: Slow pacing, wasted potential with the story, annoying characters, Max Burkholder and Adelaide Kane and their terrible performance, and a lot of clichés

Overall Rating: 4.3

Great idea ruined by it's execution.

The Purge was the movie I was looking forward to for two specific reasons: Ethan Hawk and the concept behind of it . Crime , including murder is legal for 12 continuous hours. But , instead of exploring the idea and how it's affecting the people , we get a cliche home invasion movie in which a family has to fight back inside of their house after giving shelter to a black man who is hiding from the purge members. The acting , especially by Ethan Hawk , Lena Heady , and Rhys Wakefield are strong and you do believe them in their roles. The family decision making is so bad that there were many cringe-worthy moments that were just unbelievable. Here's number of stupidity and dumb moments in the movie : The son lets a stranger in the house , which is not allowed by the government , the daughter cares more about her boyfriend's death than her dad who tried to protect , the gang shuts the power when they demand the return of the black man , and the mom lets the neighbors live when they just attempted to kill them. I have a friend named Leighton , who got offended watching the movie because it it's a illogical plot which doesn't make any sense and even if it exists as a movie it is still illogical. There are also many plot holes throughout the entire movie: How come we live in a world where it's all legal for 12 hours? , The new Founding Fathers aren't this insane and psychopathic , that they will allow this to happen , it brings more chaos and destruction than happiness and peace which they made it out to be, American people can't live in peace after their loved ones are killed out in the streets like that , and the dad , who is so rich doesn't have back-up generator in his Mansion. The neighbors thing really ruined the movie for me and the idea of the New Founding Fathers really exaggerated it for me . So, I give the Purge 1 star only for Ethan Hawke.
