Synopsis: In a world where the government sanctions an annual 12-hour killing spree, an intruder breaks into James Sandin’s (Ethan Hawke) gated community which causes a sequence of events that threatens to tear his family apart. Its up to James and his wife Mary (Lena Headey) to protect their children and repel the threat.

Review: I noticed a series of really bad decisions on part of the Dad. The daughter is a total spoiled brat that does not seems to understand that her father is working really hard to make enough money to keep his family safe, but then again, the father is also a dumb ass himself. I don’t think I want to say what I really think about James and his dumb kids. I don’t like being mean, so I deleted what I really thought about them from this post.

Why so serious?

time to play!

To purge your sins? So I guess you have to let it all out in this fictional movie world? Should I even use the word ethical or moral with a film like this? Maybe James and Mary should have built a bunker under the house, like a tempest hardened cube or some thing.

Stick together!


Lena Headey does a good job at playing a suburban mom with an American accent. She is the only semi normal human biped in this film. I love the work she does in other films and TV shows and of course this blog post is about her. In fact if you’re a fan hers then this movie is why you should watch the movie, unless you’re a gore, shoot ‘em up fan.

Good job

To wrap it all up, this film is strange to say the most. There are more Purge films out their so I guess the creators of this franchise must be doing right? I’m into much more meaningful films. This one is just passable.
