Grade: "Meh+" to "Watchable"
Umm....ok...the end is rather surprising but getting there was a bit of a chore. This movie could have been so much more but it was lacking something overall. I wish I could put my finger on it, but I cannot at this time. The acting is fine, but there were a lot of cli·chés that got tiring. It was just a choppy plot with an uneven execution. No where near the most horrible movie in the world, but it could have been so much more. Shame.
Still, a reasonable watch but it ain't no Children of Men in the world of dystopian movies.
Maybe a big bug with acid blood yelling "Yippee ki-yay" on a sinking boat shaped like a sled with a rose logo would have helped, but you can't always get what you want.
Wasnt that bad ... could have been more than it was but still watchable ... and btw Talk about crappy neighbors, huh ... hehe ;)
A little slow at first, but pretty crazy when it gets going. Could have been better but overall not bad. Disliked the ending. Would be interesting to watch it as told from a different point of view
A very original idea, & up until the last 30 minutes, or so, very suspenseful. Just the head bad guys smirk was enough to give me chills. If you can get past the kids stupidity a very good watch
Wasn't drawn to this when it came out. Due to comments like these. Also the title and cover pic, seemed to me like a epidemic, outbreak thing. Compared to other home invasion films, it's pretty good. The nasty and very near future it's set in and a large cast of characters mean there's a lot going on. 7/10
Not bad, I saw enough to never want a country to go there, which the way the planet is going, may one day be an option..crazy...not really.
What a good idea for a movie, having a "purge" day to do whatever you wanted with no consequences. However, that's about the only good thing this movie had... everything else sucked IMHO. The kids were complete idiots... the purgers want to kill, but are okay with getting killed? WTF? ... the jealous neighbor thing is completely stupid... the wife at the end is stupid... and the lack of acting really pissed me off. If you like this movie, you have the intellectual capacity of a grapefruit. Being generous... and I don't know why... 4/10.
my take, is this was so stupid. and sad, because so many people would love to do it. how can we come so far in technology? yet,are just as barbaric as the begging of time? actually as the yrs pass we seem to be converting backwards as people instead of forward. 0/10 for me.
oh the gratuitous violence,this was mindless distraction but go ahead and release the beast
I thought this was a horrible film and me being to stubborn to just turn it off... I, instead wasted an hr plus of my life and finished it... I then Purged The Purge from my computer... Hated it!!!
