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.

At a mere 75 minutes long, the film is pretty lean, and the main performances are spot-on: Hawke’s edgily successful security-system salesman is resented by the neighbours who have parted with their cash to procure his company’s products, whilst his wife (Lena Headey), is clearly sensitive to the envious comments about her new extension, and doesn’t quite seem to fit in to her surroundings. Their daughter Zoey: a sexually precocious 15 year-old, is at odds with her father over her 18 year-old boyfriend, whilst her brother: IT savvy Charlie, becomes the catalyst for the ensuing events that threaten to tear the family apart. Visceral and violent, the movie is also articulate and thought-provoking – but most of all it is extremely unsettling.
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.Read more ›
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..
I mean, it certainly puts you in a nightmarish world, a society not so far from current American one.
And the mean, realistic, cynic violence that pervades everyone is definitely unsettling.
But it's the plot and the picture of the family that does not stand on its feet to justify the unfolding of the story: basically, why should anyone take such a violent world so lightly in order to let bad guys come in and, at that, keep shouting and crying throughout the film?
Worth a view for those who like a film with tense scenes.
