It’s the basic premise that makes _The Purge_ such a chilling watch and, thought you may see the thrills and scares coming from a mile away, it’s the most interesting home-invasion thriller that I’ve seen in a very long time.
The core idea of a “purge” is interesting, but every single moment of “horror” or “thrill” in this film is a predictable jumpscare. It takes itself way too seriously and makes some heavy-handed social commentary, while at the same time being really unconvincing and riddled with tropes. Whenever one of the masked villains is on-screen you can count on them to silently tilt their head to the side, playfully skip with a weapon in hand, or giggle about killing.
The main concept and Lena Headey’s acting bumped the rating up a little.
I am a movie theatre employee, so I saw this film last night at an employee screening. Going into the movie, I was rather excited. The concept is interesting, and has never been done before. While this movie was not as scary as I had anticipated, I still thoroughly enjoyed it. The antagonists were disturbing, and the movie really shows the struggle between self-preservation and what’s right. It is somewhat short, but the makers certainly do get the job done. Plenty of flashlight-and-pistol standoffs and suspenseful scenes make for a movie with an interesting plot, and good acting. The ending was a bit predictable, but did not ruin the movie in my opinion. Not the best that I’ve seen, but overall a decent flick.
Dumb story with annoying kids
The story is so stupid. Can’t believe it became a hit and a sequel is being made.
Ethan Hawke looks gaunt. Lena Headey riding on the Game of Thrones success, deserves better than this rubbish.
The 2 kids are the most irritating kids in the history of thrillers. How could they not give the son a dressing down for putting them all in danger by opening the defenses? After the boyfriend turned homicidal, why did the daughter run off on her own? The not so subtle class message is so crude that it fails to deliver any thing at all.
Don’t watch this movie or the sequel.
