If on one night every year, you could commit any crime without facing consequences, what would you do? In a near-future America, the government has sanctioned an annual 12-hour period in which all criminal activity, including murder, becomes legal: the Purge. On this night plagued by violence and an epidemic of crime, one family is tested to see how far they will go to protect themselves when the vicious outside world breaks into their home.

America...in the not too distant future 'Crime' is allowed during
a 12 hour window.....once a year...'The Purge'
'James Sandin' has locked down his home, it is as secure as it can
be, however his son 'Charlie' seeing a man in distress and wounded
reverses the lock-down to allow the stranger refuge.
Trouble is, the group wanting to finish the job they had started want
the family to give up the man they believe the family inside has
given refuge too.
'James Sandin' needing to protect his family initially seems willing
to give the man up to the group outside, however he's not been able
to find the man, when he does the stranger has a gun and has no
intention of being sent outside to face the mob.
Those outside will not wait all night.
A frequently tense affair with several sequences of graphic violence.
A Truly Evil concept indeed,
(good picture and sound quality on this format)
For those that enjoy the extra features.....there is 'Surviving the
Night' and 'The making of the Purge' on board..

Format: DVD
While this film didn't go down the path I thought it would, what we have is a dark tale of a future that couldn't possibly happen. Human nature would dictate against the abstination of crime except for one night a year, so the premise of the story is brilliant in that respect. But then for the most part this film then skips off down the thriller route with just hints of psychological unease, captivated for the most part by Rhys Wakefield as the leader of the posh gang outside. What is frightening about the story is that even though the purge is a night where all crime is legal, people commit crimes not only because they have some dispute to settle or they feel they've been aggrieved by somebody, but just because they can and get away with it. I felt too that there was a slight nod to a Clockwork Orange particularly the "Ulta Violence" that smashes its way across the screen and I felt that the Dad played by Ethan Hawke found himself in familiar role of protecting his family at all costs. However a disturbing film that is a definite watch.

The Purge
"This is your emergency broadcast system announcing the commencement of the annual Purge. All crime,including murder,will be legal for 12 hours. All emergency services will be suspended. Your government thanks you for your participation." I believe that the idea of an annual purge is an interesting topic, albeit a rash one. It's as fair as it may seem though as weapon use over 'class 4' cannot be used and high ranking government officials cannot be harmed. Other than that, it seems like a perplexing proposition. Would people pour onto the streets, looking to vent their anger? or would the majority stay inside and wait it out?

"This night saved our country"
A montage of genuine violence caught on tape, mixed in with some weak staged scenes introduces the film with minimal substance except the videos score of Clair de Lune by Debussy, a classic. The hideously cheesy voice of a radio host announces how citizens will be 'releasing the beast' tonight as a smug looking Ethan Hawke struts into his giant up-market family home. He greets his wife and divulges in chitchat about his job and how his daughter is too young to be dating an older man. Cue the two of them declaring their love for each other in cringeworthy fashion. But it's not the loved up morose actions of the couple that are the problem as such, its the fact that the daughter, donned in a revealing schoolgirl uniform, looks nearly 30 - all realism out the window, along with the boyfriend. The equally plastic neighbours drop by to pry, boast and bang on about how great they all are, shortly before this years purge commences.

Format: DVD
The Purge is set in the near-future (2022) in the U.S. - all crime is legal for one night a year in a release deemed necessary by the New Founding Fathers to vent all the pent-up rage and anger that we as humans amass. The Purge is working, unemployment is at 1% and there is barely a crime recorded outside of the Purge night. The Sandins are a successful family in plush suburbia, although it is clear they are the envy of the neighbourhood - head-of-household James (Ethan Hawke - Training Day) makes his money selling the high-end security systems to rich folk looking to protect their homes on the night of the Purge. However, this Purge, his security will be tested to the absolute...

Spoilers probably follow; so stop reading here if you don't want to know. Firstly, this is such a great concept, they could have gone for a much larger macro-picture of the society that the Purge creates; the rich having humility for fear of invoking their neighbour's envy, bosses being nicer to employees and people being all-around fairer to each other for fear of the great karmic correction that can come about from one night without laws. This was what got me to see this film, this premise in itself is fascinating. I would love to see a film about the larger and longer-term consequences of the basis of the Purge. Alas - such cerebral societal exploration was not to be in this production.

Instead, we have a poorly-explained narrative involving a homeless man getting into the Sandin's house and the kids actively undermining the Father and Mother to further the plot.
