    An intense, surprisingly well-executed film depict

    |
    Posted .

    The opening scenes introduce us to a dystopian futuristic America in which we have overcome staggering recessions, unemployment and crime rates. Everyone seems happy and at peace with the means that provide this thriving economy. So what do they have to thank? The Purge. The Purge is a 12-hour period during which all crime is legal and all police, medical and emergency services are suspended. Radio and news casts bombard viewers with soma-popping Brave New World mantras about "unleashing the beast within" to "cleanse [or purge] our inherently violent nature." What's most interesting about this society is that The Purge is embraced by most everyone. Sure, there are media debates on how The Purge "targets" the poor who can't afford to defend themselves, but even the wealthy--with their armored home security systems--socialize, talk about what they're doing during The Purge or "purge" together in hunting parties. All of the pro-Purge political views are presented through an upper class filter--more specifically, the pro-Purge mindset of James Sandin (Ethan Hawke; Sinister, Daybreakers), a home security system salesman who lives in a ritzy neighborhood full of fake, well-to-do smiling neighbors. This year, instead of attending a party, James is spending a quiet purge with his wife Mary (Lena Headey; Game of Thrones, Dredd, The Cave, The Brothers Grimm), son Charlie (Max Burkholder) and daughter Zooey (Adelaide Kane). James' family is less embracing of The Purge than the rest of the neighborhood but, for fear of death, they abide by the social standard but do not themselves partake. Catching more of our attention is James. His security system sales are booming, he's boat shopping and he talks a big game about supporting The Purge but when he justifies its value or explains to his son why he has never felt the urge to purge there is more than a dash of a hesitation in his tone. Things begin to go wrong for the Sandins when Max sympathizes with an injured man. He hears his cries for help on the surveillance system and disarms the security for long enough to let the man into the house for safety. Shortly thereafter, a group of over-educated young adults led by polite stranger with an intensely striking sense of rich kid entitlement demand that the Sandins release the injured victim into their lethal care as a Purge tribute. If the Sandins don't, the strangers threaten to penetrate the security system and kill everyone. That's what you get from the preview and I won't give you any more except to say that things get interesting, intense, gory, fun (for violent film fans) and equal parts predictable and unpredictable. I thought all of the actors did a fine job. Solid performances across the board! Some may consider the polite stranger (Rhys Wakefield) to be pretty hammed up, but I thought his supervillainous, sociopathic and zealous mentality helped separate this strong film from the likes of The Strangers, which carried no social commentary or message whatsoever. As extreme as the premise may seem in The Purge, I must admit that it got me thinking. Not necessarily "agreeing," but thinking. I went into this movie excited because of the preview, but nervous as to how it would play out. In the end I feel that all of my positive expectations were met and none of the bad came to fruition. I was very pleased.

    Guilty Pleasure

    My wife and I love the Purge movies...They are a great way to unwind without much thought after those great days that most of us have for up to 260 days of the year, work. They are a great psychotic release if that works for you. The steelbook is an added bonus, and my true reason for buying. The 4K is only upscaled from the 2K intermediate, but the steelbook and the price make it more than a deal!

    A step in the right direction

    I believe The Purge made some headway into being an excellent suspense/horror movie. It had some flaws, but compared to what all is released in the genre it would easily be one of the better ones. The concept of the movie isn't all that original, but they do a modern take on it and I think it is successful. I really enjoyed it and was excited they they have turned it into a franchise now. It is a great initial setup that can easily be built upon for future movies (which it does). All in all, if you are interested in a good movie with a suspense aspect to it, you should pick up a copy of The Purge.

    Good idea, could've used better execution

    |
    Posted .

    Loved the idea of this movie and was really excited to see it. One night, all crimes are legal...how creepy and insane is that?! Okay, well...I might've overhyped myself and thought they could've done a lot better. After watching the two sequels, I have to say I like this one the best and have finally decided to purchase it after all the years it's been out. It's not the best movie IMO, but for $5, I'm willing to Purge again.

    The Purge

    |
    Posted .

    This is the film where it all started, the first purge, not to be confused with the fourth titled film in this series "The First Purge". This film centers around one family and their attempt to survive the first purge within their own home. This focus on the single family in their home may be one of the slower parts of this film franchise, but it is still a must watch in the series.

    A good watch

    This was a good film. It was an enjoyable watch without making the viewer want more or feel like there were a whole lot of issues. It is a nice movie for any thrill seekers that can enjoy a film being good or great and not expect perfection.

    Intriguing story, lack luster cast

    |
    Posted .

    This film is currently ranked behind its Sequel (The Purge: Anarchy) because I have yet to watch Election Year. It's story is unique but pretty straight forward and has some entertaining moments. The main thing I don't like about it is that it's extremely racist, but so is the rest of the world, so what can you do. Check this one out, and definitely check out The Purge: Anarchy.

    Weapons or Flowers?

    Posted .

    I think the idea behind the annual Purge is pretty simple... 12 hours a year, all crime is legal and emergency services are unavailable. Being able to release all the violence and hatred, crime has gone way down, and the world is essentially a better place. Overall, awesome movie. More of a thriller/suspense than a horror. It's not really scary, but there is a lot of violence and blood.If you're squeamish, or one of your biggest fears in home invasion, you probably shouldn't watch this.

    Cool artwork on the SteelBook. The discs look great themselves with video and audio in the highest quality possible. Includes a Blu-ray and a digital copy for streaming on-the-go. Highly recommended if you're a fan of the franchise!

    Unique concept

    |
    Posted .

    I like the concept of The Purge. It's definitely "out there". The first film resorts to being a semi-typical home invasion story, but it's told within that interesting concept of having all hell break loose for 12 hours each year. Worth seeing for its concept, plus I like the actors.

    The Purge film re-released in steelbook. This trilogy horror series is so much better in the steelbook format. If you're a fan of the movies or just a collector of the format, I recommend this series ,
