Synopsis


The Purge
A family living in a gated community fight to defend their home against vicious attackers during the one night each year when all crime is legal in this high-concept thriller from writer/director James DeMonaco (Staten Island). In the not-too-distant future, rampant crime and prison overcrowding have inspired the U.S. government to implement a unique solution to restore the peace: Each year, for a 12-hour period, any and all crime becomes permissible as police put their jobs on hold, and hospitals close their doors. It's called the Purge, and remarkably, the annual event leads to drastically reduced crime and record-low unemployment levels throughout the rest of the year. But this year, as suburban parents James (Ethan Hawke) and Mary (Lena Headey) place their home on lockdown for the annual event, a desperate man finds his way into their neighborhood while fleeing a sadistic gang of masked killers. In a moment of compassion, James and Mary's adolescent son (Max Burkholder) unlocks the door, offering sanctuary to the frightened stranger. Unfortunately for the entire family, that act of kindness may also be their very last, because now the killers who were pursuing the man have surrounded the house, and have vowed to kill everyone inside unless they are willingly given the man they are hunting within an hour. As the clock begins to tick, the family face a difficult dilemma -- do they sacrifice the life of a stranger in hopes of saving themselves, or attempt to stand their ground until the Purge expires? ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    I really liked the storyline of this movie! The main reason I did was because it's unique and original. It was scary to think that this could actually happen in America and I still thought it was a great movie. The DVD was in excellent shape when I purchased it.

    I enjoyed the movie. I found the premise conceptually interesting. The acting and storyline were good. The ending just kind of left me feeling unsatisfied. This is common w/ this genre as well as w/ many Sci-fi books. Ending them is very difficult. I will be interested in seeing the sequel.

    I will keep it short and simple. Original premise that almost lived up to it. I won't say why because that Would ruin the movie. Once you watch it you will know what I'm talking about. If you liked the remake of assault on precient 13 than you will like this movie.

    Interesting Idea, Terrible Movie

    It's an exciting and thougt-provoking idea - a future where crime is eliminated because of one purging period where anything goes. The movie is terribly done, however. A solid premise ruined by cloppy story-telling.

    The Purge will keep you on the edge of your seat from the beginning until the end of the film with twists and turns that you won't expect. A first rate thriller that is creepy.
