    So after years of the Purge I finally decided to buy them all on blu-ray for a fun weekend watch. I didn't buy the 1st one as it was quickly labeled nothing more than a glorified home invasion film.. With such a great Idea of a yearly purge why on earth would you turn it into a home invasion flick? Anyhow, years later and we get The Purge Eection Year and so on... This is a freshly needed update to the 1st film. As I watch all my films on a 180" projected screen in my home theater it feels like watching this in an IMAX theater for the 1st time! The sound and picture quality on the film were fantastic. The story was engaging and I highly recommend this to others.... If added to you collection I see this as an annual watch... Maybe during election seasons as well. It was a lot of fun!

    The Purge trilogy is absolutely FAR from great. I am not very fond of the films myself. However, I keep in this mainly because I love the idea of it. Watch the film, think about it, although most of it may be highly unlikely (or is it?) Think about the president and all of our world's beloved politics and government, coming to the agreement of an annual purge. A brief, 12 hour long, day of the year where everybody can just kill each other, or do whatever it is they'd like, with all the tools provided for them to make these things possible. This act is negatively helpful to many people. Yet it works in the film. I love the idea, and when I watch the film, remembering that is the idea, I genuinely just get sucked in.

    I bought this and the other two Purge films on Blu-ray before I had seen any of them, as I was quite sure I would enjoy them, and I wasn't wrong! I just finally watched all three of them pretty recently, and they were amazing! As for the Blu-ray for Election Year, I couldn't be happier with it, the movie looks excellent in HD! Also, the slipcover that came with this is quite unique, it has a different type of texture/finish, which I think is really cool. I would definitely recommend picking this up if you have the first two films on Blu-ray! Also, if you don't have any of them on Blu-ray, and their genre is something you might enjoy you should buy all three of them!

    Well this was a disappointment compared to the 2 previous movies that dropped. If your going to watch a third part to a series of movies, one wants to see it go above and beyond the first two. They should've been more creative. A little depth would have been nice. And the underground blah, blah, blah... No, please stop. Just defeated the purpose of the purge! Anyway... Could've skipped part 3 all together. Lets put it this way gore fans, it was the Halloween III to the "Halloween" franchise. I say "Don't do it". Well maybe, if it goes on the deal of the day for 3.99 ( that's being generous ) go for it. IMO* Everyone has their own likings n disliking.

    The 2nd worst transaction I've ever had at a BestBuy. Took the video home and it didn't work. It would not play in Blue-ray player or on the computer. Took to store for refund and policy would not give me anything but another video. This policy makes no sense. Unless I don't want the video how would I know that the disk won't work. I get that the studio may have burned the disk wrong or failed to copy on disk but I should have gotten store credit. VERY DISAPPOINTED IN PURCHASE. Store personnel told me I could return it for store credit but when I returned, I was told they could only replace it with another one. Low level rude to me throughout the return transaction.

    Yet another amusing, twisted take on the taboo

    Personally, i love this entire series of movies, mainly due to the fact that it addresses a wild, minute, and fleeting thought that passes through our brains and the vast majority of people disregard. That thought that boils up after a very trying day. "What would I do and how would I act if I knew that regardless of my actions, I wouldn't suffer any legal ramifications, curious isn't it? The storyline is similar, and hopefully the don't overdue it like that "power-tool" movie that started off very twisted, and yet, managed to confront those boundaries created by our own environments, and the unbiased results of action vs reaction .

    I have to admit, when I realized that this was turning into a franchise, I wasn't all that excited, as the first home invasion styled entry in the series was a bit...frustrating at times? Just issues with character motivations, etc., but the two sequels have actually surpassed the original in every way, building quite a strange little world to tell a variety of stores in that I'm quite happy to check out each year. This third installment is by far the strongest of the three and can easily function as a stand-alone story if you're not familiar with the rest of the series. Recommended.

    The first purge movie was alarming because, as scary as it is, you know this could possibly happen in real life. Hopefully not in my future. The concept that the government could rid of poor people and homeless people by allowing murder one night a year. The 2nd Purge film continued that theme, building on characters a bit more. Finally, with this film, the final Purge movie, we see how people have had enough of it, and with the help of one political ally, hope is on the horizon for the purge to end. Great film series. Not a bad one in the three.
