The Purge Movie Review

Plot: In an America terrorized by crime and overcrowded prisons, the government has sanctioned an annual 12-hour period in which any and all criminal activity-including murder-becomes legal. The police can’t be called. Hospitals suspend help. It’s one night when the citizenry regulates itself without thought of punishment.

I’m not a big horror movie genre fan. Most follow the same gory boo an scare tactics. But there are a few that I enjoy and stand out. The Purge is one of those horror films. I really enjoyed this movie.

The Purge stands out for me because it didn’t really feel like a horror movie all the way through, cause it had a “thriller” feel to it. And, it didn’t have you’re typical horror gore tactics. Also, I loved the concept of the yearly 12 hour “purge” this near USA future the story takes place.

Ethan Hawke and the rest if the cast was fun to watch as all were pushed to their limits. My favorite cast member was the wife/mother played by Lena Headey AKA Cersei Lannister from Game of Thrones.

Ethan Hawke was quoted saying this movie was made for only 3 million dollars. Even if it was made for less than 10 mil, it’s nice to see films made with good casts, stories & scripts without blockbuster budgets making it to the big screen. Wether you see this film in the theater or video, check it out!
