The Purges

The Purge, a movie that came out during the year 2013 was a "horror" movie about people killing each other for one day. The setting takes place in the United States during the year 2022, when everything is peaceful and crime is gone. However, for twelve hours, the government allows all crimes to be legal to control the population. The first movie is about a family trying to survive the event, but turns out having problems that leads to the father dying. The sequel to The Purge, The Purge: Anarchy, the second movie that came out during 2014, is about another family surviving the purge.
Although both movies didn't receive the best reviews and ratings, but they were both successful since the first one made over $89 million out of a $3 million budget and the second one over $110 out of $9 million. The directors of this franchise are planning to make a third movie called The Purge: Vengeance supposedly by July, 2016. Here are the trailers for one movie if you are interested.

  1. I agree with the critics reviews on this franchise. It attempts to make intelligent social commentary but utterly fails; in the end you're left with cliches, incessant violence, and crappy acting.

  2. I remember the time when I watched the first movie, and there were a few parts where I thought were creepy, I´m not gonna lie, but I can´t imagine the audience still being intrigued enough to watch the second and third movies. They should have just stuck with the first movie.

    1. I haven't watched the first movie so I'm interested to watch someday soon. However, if the first movie was good enough alone itself, I agree with you Arige, that they shouldn't make second or third movie of it. Many movies that tries to keep after the first one are boring and predictable. However, there are few exceptions like "Insidious" which I remember after watching the second one, I could understand the whole movie. Watching only the first Insidious wasn't good.

    2. I agree with you, like I personally haven't watched the first movie, but the second one at least the trailer doesn't look as good as the first one. It is really annoying when companies try to make sequels but utterly fail and then end up ruining the first movie in the process.

    1. Sorry, but you can't watch this movie anymore because it was a 2013 horror movie. You can still watch it in YouTube or buy it at a movie store, but I am pretty sure it is going to be hard for you to find it because that movie is a really, really old movie. Good luck trying to find that movie and I wish you don't cry or get started watching that HORROR movie, the Purges.

  6. I really don't see the point in making movies like this, yeah they made a lot of money and yeah some people like it. But I don't see the point in making movies with this theme. It gives people ideas. And it seem that the people who made this only made it because the ran out of other good ideas for movies.

    2. Me too!!! I want to watch this movie! It looks good and I think this kind of scariness is better than just being unrealistic and violent. This in a way looks realistic and I don't think it would be boring so I really want to watch it !

  9. How would the government make crime legal for one day? At least in America, they can barely pass laws on what Americas national food is! How on earth would this get passed! Also, what stops people from leaving the country during the purge, or joining together to overthrow the government!

    1. I agree this does not make any sense! I mean if everything is peaceful why do they feel the need to attack or have a day where cime is legal i mean that is just so stupid but at the same time it was pretty scary!

  10. I liked these movies. They may not make sense, but they are interesting. I couldn't stop thinking of how an entire nation could be okay with a purge policy, tho. I used to wonder how it might look if things like this actually happened, and here is my answer

  11. This movie is good, I cant wait to watch it, this movie is not a horror movie, it is suspense movie.

  12. I didn't know about this movie until i saw this trailer! It looks so good. I really want to watch it. It is kind of stupid that the government would allow violence for one day if the have a society without it. Shouldn't they be happy that they accomplished what they wanted? Besides that It looks really awesome.
