Blunt Reviews Presents: The Purge (2013)


The adjective that best describes this film: disappointing. It set itself up to be an interesting piece of social commentary but then abandoned this opportunity in order to make a film that feels like Straw Dogs and Home Alone had a baby. With its weak plot and ensemble of unlikable characters the film falls down before the first hurdle. It focuses on one element of crime, violence, and ignores all white collar crime, thus providing a one sided bore fest. With unjustified violence, flat characters and strange prolonged shots of a girl in school uniform, executive producer Michael Bay is happy!
