~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

The Purge (2013)

Starring: Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, Rhys Wakefield
Director: James DeMonaco


Premise:
In the future, America has taken care of its crime problem by allowing one night a year where anything becomes legal. A wealthy family helps a victim only to become the new target of his attackers

My Take:
I was disappointed in this movie. Mainly because the premise just doesn't work in my mind. Just because their is one night a year where crime is legal doesn't mean it was be reduced the rest of the year. And nearly every character becomes robotic when talking about "The Purge" and "The New Founding Fathers", it's udderly ridicous. Sure their is a decent underlying message about the priviledge versus the poor but it's really not enough.
