The Purge: Election Year (2016) **REVIEW**

I am a huge fan of The Purge franchise. I always being asked why. It’s because these films showing a scary future that might happen if one wrong person get’s elected. It’s like a wake up call. And also, every film is different. It’s different scenarios in each film and that is what I love the MOST about The Purge franchise.

The way in the first The Purge we see how a family gets attacked when the boy helps a homeless man being chased. And in the second we see a man Leo helping a group of people surviving purge night and we also see the homeless man from first one fighting for anti purge group. In the third, we see Leo and homeless man again. And this time we see Leo and Dante (homeless man) once again in the third.

Leo is now working in security and protecting Senator Charlie Roan from being assassinated on purge night. Because founding fathers took one rule out for this night; no one is safe, not even politicians. Perfect way to get rid of her. As a group of white power hired by founding fathers enters her home, Leo is the only one to protect her. Til they stumble upon a deli owned by Joe. As Leo is trying to keep Senator safe during this time we see how two stories flows together into one. As when Senator gets kidnapped by government militia so how is she getting out of this one? Have the government gone too far with purge night? Have the people gone too far as well? Exactly how will this night turn out for Senator, Leo, Joe and the rest? When they are trying to survive this horrible night. We all know purge night brings out the worst in people and everyone just want to survive the night.

Actors: Frank Grillo, Elizabeth Mitchell, Mykelti Williamson, Joseph Julian Soria, Betty Gabriel, Edwin Hodge, Kyle Secor and many more.

The Purge: Anarchy **REVIEW**

Second installment of the The Purge franchise. As I mentioned in my last post – a third The Purge movie is coming next summer and I am excited. I love these movies. When it comes to sequels it’s not easy to keep the excitement but this movie is even better. Why? Because we get to see what happens on the street when the purge have commenced.. In the first movie we get to see what happens in a house – here we see the streets and the chaos. It takes place a year after the first film.

In The Purge Anarchy they have really become creative to let us see what’s going on. A bunch of people find themselves stuck on streets when the purge commence. And this one who is set on killing this one person rescues these people and they have to trust each other to be able to get through this horrible night.. They have to hide from 2 different group of people: Military looking acting guys & a group of thugs. Both of the groups hunt people down and bring them to rich folk who got their purge party.This second movie is really good, more action, more blood, more chaos – ANARCHY.

  • Would I recommend this to anyone who’d like to see it? YES
  • Do you have to watch the first movie to be able to understand the second? NO – the movies doesn’t have storylines that you have to watch the first to then watch the second. 2 separate movies in this franchise. But altho someone from the first movie is making an appearance in the second.

You see actors like Frank Grillo, Carmen Ejogo, Zach Gilford, Kiele Sanchez, Zoe Soul, Justina Machado, Michael Kenneth Williams, Edwin Hodge and many more.

The Purge **REVIEW**

That I am a fan of The Purge movies isn’t a secret. And I found out that a third movie will come to our cinemas in July 1st 2016. Who’s excited? I know I am..

Now.. for what I was about to do, write about the first The Purge movie. I can’t get enough of this – I like movies with a lot of violence and a little creepy at the same time. If you do too – then The Purge are perfect for you..

The movie takes place in 2022 where something called “The Purge” – a 12 hour period where all criminal activity including murder are legal. A wealthy family are being targeted after giving a man sanctuary from a group of young adult who wants to purge him from the streets. These young adults comes over and want him back so they can purge him or they will break through their security system and grab him with force. Now they have a tough decision to make – keep him or kick him out of the house?

This movie puts fear in people of this happening – people been telling me it won’t happen but play with the idea for a moment. Myself would live in a bunker til end of my days. The weak would go first and I don’t do well with real life violence. But any who.. The Purge movie is quite good and well recommended if you’re looking for that thrill seeking movie that will keep you watching..

You see actors like Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, Max Burkholder, Adelaide Kane, Edwin Hodge, Rhys Wakefield, Tony Oller and many more.
