A wealthy family is held hostage for harboring the target of a murderous syndicate during the Purge, a 12-hour period in which any and all crime is legal.
“The Purge” is a 2013 horror-thriller film directed by James DeMonaco. The movie takes place in a dystopian future where once a year, for 12 hours, all crime including murder is legal. The concept is intriguing, and the film is well-directed and well-acted. However, it suffers from some major flaws.
The story centers around a wealthy family, the Sandins, who live in a secured mansion and are preparing for the Purge. They believe they are safe, but things quickly take a turn for the worse when their son lets in a stranger who is being hunted by a group of masked killers.
The film’s concept is disturbing, and it raises some interesting questions about morality and human nature. However, the execution of the concept is lacking. The film feels like it could have been much more impactful if it had delved deeper into the philosophical implications of the Purge.
The film’s characters are not particularly well-developed, and it’s hard to care about them. Ethan Hawke gives a solid performance as the family patriarch, but the other actors are forgettable.
The Purge suffers from some plot holes and inconsistencies, which detract from the overall experience. For example, the film suggests that people only participate in the Purge because they have been brainwashed by the government, but it doesn’t explore this idea in depth.
Overall, “The Purge” is a decent movie that could have been great with a more thoughtful script. It’s an interesting concept, and the film has some good scares, but it’s ultimately forgettable.
