Movie Review: The Purge 2013

No comments :

Title: The Purge
Language: English
Genre: Horror / Thriller
Running Time: 85 Minute

If on one night every year, you could commit any crime without facing consequences, what would you do? In The Purge, a speculative thriller that follows one family over the course of a single night, four people will be tested to see how far they will go to protect themselves when the vicious outside world breaks into their home. (GSC)

What do I think about it:-

The concept sounds great, the potentials to shake viewers heart was endless and yet the movie was a flop. 

Full of unrealistic choices and a lazy setting plan, The purge turns sour when everything done or happened around the main characters doesn't seem to make any sense. A total waste for a movie with this concept due the lack of script polishing and proper plot flows. It all just seemed like a spontaneous gesture for the director to film.

The acting was doubtful besides a rather sinister expression from the main villain of the movie who seemed to fade out anti climatically and topping it of with a kid that seems to belong in the asylum and yet seems to get away with what ever he does, and to add to it, a hot sister despite looking scared and running around the house with a stranger in it seems perfectly fine with running around the house without anyone with her. 

Incompetent villains blows down the film's level of intensity (they had these really creepy mask and rather crazy intro but that was just it) 

Would have been great if they actually took the time to decide whether they want to make a thriller or a video game. 

Would not recommend to watch this in the cinemas besides the download version is out anyway. 

Rating: 1/5
