“Purge Day makes you a killer”

published 16/08/2013

ProGreat idea

ConsNot as gripping as hoped

The film runs for around an hour and a half, is given a guidance certificate of a 15 because of violent scenes and it rated 5.5 out of 10 on IMDB. The story...

The Purge "This is your emergency broadcast system announcing the commencement of the annual Purge. All crime,including murder,will be legal for 12 hours. All emergency services will be suspended.

“Binge and Purge”

published 09/08/2013

ProA solid central conceit.

ConsThe director doesn't capitalise on the concepts an...

In America in the near-future, crime has fallen to an all-time low. This is because one night a year, during The Purge, all crime is legal – including murder. It gives every citizen a chance to vent their pent-up rage in whatever way they see fit, thereby keeping anti-social behaviour in check...

I remember seeing the advertising for this flick when it came out and there was a fair bit of chatter about it being one to watch if you're a fan of horror. I didn't, however, have my hopes too high for this so waited for renting the DVD rather than paying for the cinema, and having watched it...

ConsVery little development with the plot/characters

Whether what this film suggests is actually feasible or not is an entirely separate matter - would an annual 12-hour period in which all crimes are allowed really help decrease America's crime rate and solve the country's long-standing problem of unemployment? During these hours even the...

ConsThe sound did not really impact me, lack of it

The story for this film can be predictable at times but has some surprise twists and turns, leaves you thinking to yourself you know what will happen and you will be very surprised. Happened to me twice especially to do with who was committing certain acts. Anyway Purge is set around 10 years in...

Conscould have been so much more

I have very mixed opinions about The Purge, some great points but some not so good, here is my review, without giving too much away for those of you who have not seen the film yet! The Purge was released in may of 2013. It was both written and directed by James DeMonaco. It has a running time of...

I wanted to see this film when it came out at the cinema in 2013 but I actually had to wait until the beginning of 2014 as I missed. So I watched it on iTunes instead. It cost me £4.49 to rent it back then and it was then on my laptop for 30 days. From a quick look at iTunes today, it is no...

“Great idea. Bad movie”

published 06/08/2014

ProGreat idea for a movie

ConsBoring

I think that this movie had one of the most original and creative ideas in recent years only to be let down by the production, acting and very slow paced story progression. Although I wanted to enjoy this film, it was hard to sit through the running time without checking how long I would have to...
