A Genuinely Insightful, Heart—Wrenching And Effective Drama, Well Crafted (by Cristi_Ciopron)
The cabal against this movie is political. 'The Purge' flopped politically, it flopped for political reasons. A genuinely insightful _dystopian thriller, subtle and bitter, piercing and heart-wrenching, James DeMonaco's movie is clearheaded and sharply thought, convincingly realized, a tale of substitutive atonement, and also of expiation. Much is left unspoken, or suggested. There are hints—about the characters' ways of being. But the undertones—of danger, of eroticism and appeal, etc.—are extremely well managed.And it is also a story about virtue—the husband's, <more>
who is a man of virtue. He speaks about team, about making it as a team. He shows good sense and balance, while the members of his family are unbalanced, either because of age the kids or other causes the wife, 'Mary', is certainly mysterious as a character, intriguing, we see that she drinks, and later she exchanges looks with the hunted person, and the moment when she and their guest part ways has an undeniably erotic undercurrent, she gives in to him . He is betrayed and redeemed. His team fails; the team assembled around him, in his home, will not buy in the virtue he upholds. They betray him. The kids disobey him, his wife flirts with their uninvited guest. He is blamed for everything, for every _disfunction, he always gets the blame—because the security systems aren't unbreakable, because he wants to deliver the fugitive to his hunters, then because he won't, then for giving the boy a gun, etc.. The surrounding soft-heads get all the love. We understand early that most of the characters are humanly undependable, save the husband; the wife is often shown drinking while preparing the meal, then at dinner , the boy is annoying. In current terms, they are flawed persons. But the husband is flawed also, and here is the twist of the story—because he is cleansed, redeemed, by his virtue. His death is substitutive and expiatory; it is true he kills a youngster, his daughter's lover, he kills in self—defense, and is killed in his turn, cleansed, stabbed, the others kill too, but they get away with it, because they play the game, and so their generosity is a piece of the same puzzle with the murderers and the decent neighbors, they belong to the same world, while the husband, the sales' champion, doesn't, and is killed. And so, the family saves a stranger, tears the ethics, and betrays one of theirs. They make the mistakes, and they are ceaselessly comforted, etc.. The husband, the man who believes in team and in virtue, is betrayed, stabbed, cleansed and redeemed. His team falls apart, they survive, he doesn't, and the meaning of his death isn't that of a failure, but that of redemption—also expiation and substitutive atonement, in a secular understanding.The actress playing 'Mary', the wife, has a very striking beauty. Her character, 'Mary', is a standout by her drinking and by her beauty.An aged Hawke does a good role, understated and satisfying, perhaps like a Dillon, or a better Nolte.Hawke is 42 in this movie, Mrs. Headey is 39.Perhaps it is not really a dystopia, dystopia as the conventional genre known to us, and perhaps it's not even related to the philosophy of culture; it's not a political conjecture, or a warning, it is a political statement, and indictment, which is why its critics, or many of them, disliked it, and 2022 might be anytime. This is the best of the five movies released this year that I have seen. I have found it mind—blowing. I understand that it annoyed the righteous ilk.
The Purge, 12 hours where ALL crime is legal. Despite this movie being labelled as a 'Horror', it is not particularly scary. This movie has plenty of jumpy parts, bits that will surprise you, but I wouldn't class it as a Horror movie. It's more of an Action/Thriller movie. The character development is good, and you can easily form a relationship with them, whether it's love or hate. The movie is full of twists and turns around every corner which keeps everything entertaining and interesting for us. The twists are pretty unexpected and they make you think. The concept of <more>
the whole movie is really fresh and is creepy in itself. One of the best Action-Thriller movie's I've ever seen, the concept, the twists, the characters, the entire plot is flawless. The acting, especially from Rhys Wakefield is exceptional. They all deliver believable and amazing performances that enhance the film even more. Overall, I would definitely recommend this movie for any fan of Action or Thriller movies, especially for anybody interested in this kind of concept.
I wasn't bought when first seeing this film on the Odeon website. In fact I wasn't at all convinced it was going to be a great film! But I was wrong!Upon seeing trailers & previews it looked like a great film! The concept of doing what ever the hell you wanted for 12 hours! The whole "All crime is legal!" is what caught my attention & I had to see this!Well, it was an great film! Loved the concept! Kill people over grudges/disagreements etc! It's something anyone who held so much hate for someone would do to let it out! In other words, 12 hours of stress relief! <more>
I Love it! A Stranger gets let into the house after begging for help! Which would lead the audience to think he was just pretending so he could come in & kill people! The stranger then goes away to hide while the boyfriend of the fathers daughter attempts to kill him! Then the killers outside start swarming the outside of the house, wearing creepy stereo-typical "nice" smiling masks, while holding machetes, guns, knives, bats etc! With the polite/sinister leader giving them an hour to hand the stranger over to them or they'll come in & kill them all! They cut the power! They then wait outside making threats to the camera! Such as pretending to slice their own throats, putting the guns to their heads etc! Not to mention playing around the garden area! Women swinging on the swings! Dancing around etc! Just mental!The family try to find the stranger, so they could hand him over! But then decide against it & fight back! The heart of the film then starts with the family cautiously walking around the house, armed with guns & torches of men & women, couples & singles all wearing the same masks breaking in laughing & destructing the place, looking for them & ready to kill!I just liked the way the film was panned out! How the killers were just plain neighbours/normal everyday people killing! Like the women were in frilly white dresses holding machetes! How mad is that!? Couples holding hands & having piggy backs while searching for them! Just how twisted it was just made this film so interesting! Not to mention how sick minded they were! Then through the climax of the film, the masked killer get killed by unknown strangers! As well as the father, who sadly gets killed by the polite man by a machete after a great battle scene! The smug polite stranger also gets killed & is supposingly the last! Until the unknown strangers who helped decide to kill the family also as payback for rubbing the money of the home security in their faces! The stranger from the start, who get let into the house kills a few of them! Then they wait until morning! When the Purge finishes after the siren sounds & the remaining killers leave after the women gets her head thumped repeatedly on the glass table after one last final attempt to kill the mum! Then the films ends with them standing in the door way waiting for the emergency services to arrive!Overall It was a very enjoyable film! Really liked it! Kept me on the edge of my seat! Lacked the gore & was abit dark to see! But wasn't a huge disappointment! Was well better then what I thought it would be!10/10
With some suspension of disbelief, The Purge is an excellent thriller. (by logan-krum)
Cleansing Hollywood of its sinsThe Purge is better than you probably expect, and you're probably already hyped for it. It's rare that a film has writing, directing, and acting work with perfect synchronization to establish a solid image for the film. It would have passed as a stirring horror/thriller based on concept alone, but it refuses to rely only on its marketable premise to attract viewer-ship. Finally, we can enjoy a horror movie without feeling like we're being baby-talked to.The Purge toys with the concept of an America in which all crime as long as it is not at the <more>
expense of a prominent government figure is legalized for 12 hours, one night a year. During this time no help is available; police and hospitals are preoccupied hiding in their own homes. Purging night has helped whittle crime rates to a measly 1% of what it used to be, and helps Americans unleash pent-up aggression. It's a foolproof system. James Sandin Ethan Hawke, giving horror another go since his role in Sinister makes a large profit for his family by selling security systems designated especially for the yearly occasion. When purging night arrives once more, he and his wife Lena Headey and two kids Adelaide Kane and Max Burkholder prepare for an uneventful night behind the protective barriers. But the beautiful thing about America is that everyone is entitled to their opinion. James' son Charlie doesn't see the humanity in purging night. When a homeless man becomes the target of a group of masked hunters who use the night to unleash their heinous but highly educated anger, Charlie lets him through the barrier into their home. The group of anonymous private school students targets the family for protecting the swine born to be hunted this night. "If you had to kill someone tonight, would you?" Charlie asks his parents. Unrelentingly gripping the guileful concept, director and screenwriter James DeMonaco slides current political issues into the film. The concept is navigated from the standpoint of a typical small American neighborhood. There's sweet old Mrs. Robinson from across the street, pulling a final batch of chocolate chip cookies out of the oven and sharpening her machete for tonight. Who do you know who would take advantage of purging night, the film asks. Would you?Our four heroes don't have much time to make up their minds. Morals, instincts, and beliefs clash as the family attempts to survive and retain their humanity. The acting is fantastic across the board, especially Rhys Wakefield as our charming gun happy antagonist. He's very Ledger-esque without coming across as a blatant rip off. Every scene is fueled with an agenda to entertain and a different means of entertainment. Part churning and suspenseful and part heart-in-your-throat action, the film rewards with every sequence. The action scenes play well and are perhaps the most satisfying of the film, despite being nearly incoherent from frantic camera movement. The audio is recorded with raw scratchiness from the opening scene and teases its way to a climax of rending but pleasant clamor. Maybe my position a mere five rows away from the screen made it louder than it actually was. The over-the-top gunfights combat the film's clever subtleties well.The true greatness of the film is how DeMonaco uses horror as a medium to provide social and political commentary. I don't think most horror movies can add 2 plus 2. This film could ace a calculus exam. Bonus: producer and CEO of Blumhouse Jason Blum held a Q&A after the film was over. Blum is the mastermind behind horror hits such as Insidious and Paranormal Activity and, if I was writing this in 2014, I'd most likely include The Purge on that list . Blum is a very down-to- earth and tan guy eager for The Purge to hit theaters. Someone in the crowd asked him how long the Paranormal Activity series will go on. His frank reply: "I probably shouldn't say this Paranormal Activity will continue as long as people continue to see it." Interesting.The Purge comes out June 7. There's no doubt in my mind this quieter film can stand its ground against the extravagant CGI and chivalrous superheroes this summer. 9/10 starsYou can read the full review here: http://logankrum.wordpress.com/2013/04/26/the-purge/
Why You should not be tricked by low IMDb 5.5 point (by Jacklilcookie-27-358821)
If you are wondering about the film and worried about the low rating, please don't mind the people who seriously underestimate the quality of this film. The reason is that everyone thinks that they can write a better scenario than that and characters are stupid. They expect characters with no emotional dilemmas, they expect people who are doing the most rational thing with no human element, as in every Hollywood film where the cool hero kicks the a** of the bad guys in the brightest way. DO NOT expect that too much in this film. This film is not a typical thriller film that approaches <more>
killing very lightly and easily. Every time you feel a character is about to die, it makes you think its moral sides. This film has many very good messages and it delivers them very well. It is trying hard to reflect on the emotional dilemmas and morality of killing rather than keeping it as a satisfaction element for the audience. So If you want to watch a film with a very good story and messages about morals, this is the right film. If you wanna see a blood bath with coolest and brightest characters dealing with a meaningless gore, then find another film.Briefly, this film is for you, if you are looking for a good story that will make you think. If you are looking for a typical film like "panic room" etc. then turn your face to another film. IF you think the characters could behave better and more logically, without any emotions, then you better start writing your own scenario and good luck in finding some readers, you will need it.
The first thing I noticed when I watched this movie was "This gonna be great!". The creator James DeMonaco made this extraordinary piece of art. The cinematography, music, and direction were amazing. Add to that it's new not containing the regular zombies or ghosts. It didn't include scary illogical scenes, but had a very good plot filled with edge of your seat thrill, action, and emotions. I enjoyed this movie, and I'm watching it's sequel.
Well I liked it (by BA_Harrison)
America—the near future: the annual 'Purge'—a 12-hour period where all crime is legalised—turns into a nightmare for a wealthy family who had hoped to spend the time in the safety of their heavily fortified home.The Purge has been the victim of a lot of negativity, but I found it to be a well-executed thriller with a satirical edge that deliberately adopts a far-fetched premise in order to take a pop at the USA's culture of violence, its undercurrent of racism and a legal system that favours the rich.I imagine that much of the hate comes from Americans who simply don't <more>
like the messages the film so effectively illustrates—an understandable reaction, perhaps, but sometimes its good to take a long hard look in the mirror, and if you don't like what you see, do something to make a change.On a more shallow note, the action was suitably hard-hitting, with the snooker room fight being particularly bad-ass, and both Lena Headey and Zoey Sandin are total babes.
I was actually kinda surprised by all the bad reviews after the release... So I got to watch it anyway and I have to say, I understand why Americans can't like the piece. It represents all the excess they are known for. I am french and even the fact that you can have a gun so freely is beyond my understanding, even though I get that it's in your culture, your pride or something like that. Anyway, as a European, I see The Purge as a satyr or something like this. Authorizing crime/murder one night a year is here seen as the solution for all the problems and it clearly worked and it <more>
kinda works in a weird sense. After a little slow first half that allows us to "learn to know the characters and what is their point of view on The Purge" , the action enters and never stops until the end. We even have a few twists all over the place so it was really enjoyable. Totally recommend it.
A Wicked, High-Concept Satire About A Futuristic America (by zardoz-13)
Writer & director James DeMonaco's home invasion thriller "The Purge" qualifies as both suspenseful and thought-provoking political allegory. The year is 2022, and America revels in a state of idyllic, economic prosperity. Crime rates as well as unemployment have plunged drastically under the inspired political leadership of the New Founding Fathers. Literally, America has been "reborn." The reason behind our national recovery is the institution of an event christened 'The Purge.' Citizens may embark on crime sprees during one 12-hour period annually <more>
without fear of prosecution. All emergency services, including police, firefighters, and physicians, are suspended. Indeed, anybody can murder with impunity. During the opening credits, we're shown ersatz surveillance system videos of people committing blue-collar crimes during the purge. The hypothetical nature of DeMonaco's narrative comes with some vague rules. We learn from the prologue that no harm must befall high-ranking government officials and citizens cannot wield weapons above a 'Class 4' level. The crazies that lay siege to our hero's house are packing either shotguns, assault weapons, or good, old-fashioned axes. DeMonaco provides scant details behind the ideology of the New Founding Fathers. People like to cleanse themselves on 'Purge' of their negative emotions and they praise their victims for sacrificing their lives for their country. Furthermore, he keeps the scope of his premise confined to one high-income, gated community covered with security systems. Clocking in at a nimble 85-minutes, "The Purge" suffers more from its enigmatic origins than from plausibility. DeMonaco references the New Founding Fathers, but we don't learn much about them. You may see some things coming, but this evocative melodrama has enough surprises to keep you guessing. "The Purge" carries an R-rating so the squeamish should beware, and adults with impressionable children should shun this violent, bloody thriller.James Sandin Ethan Hawke of "Training Day" sells security systems, and he has attained the pinnacle of success at his company with his chartbuster sales. Undoubtedly, the annual Purges have contributed in some small measure to his good fortune. He resides in an upscale community with his wife Mary Lena Headey of "Game of Thrones" and their two children, 14-year old Charlie Max Burkholder of "Daddy Day Care" and 16-year old Zoey Adelaide Kane of "Donner Pass" , and they live in reasonable harmony. If anybody can shatter the tranquility of the Sandin house, Zoey's 18-year old boyfriend, Henry Tony Oller of "Beneath the Darkness" , who doesn't stand a ghost of a chance negotiating with her dad, is the best candidate. As the action unfolds, ubiquitous loudspeakers repeatedly warn citizens that the next 'Purge' is scheduled to commence at 7 PM and then elapse 12 hours later. DeMonaco makes certain that we know what the Purge is, even if we don't know the gritty details behind it. Meanwhile, Henry wants to win James over to his side. Henry plans to let events trap him inside the Sandin household for the next 12 hours. While he is holed up with the Sandins, Henry hopes to convert Zoey's father to his camp. Initially, nobody but Zoey is aware of Henry's presence. During the pre-Purge period, James and Mary deal with some of their neighbors who are preparing for an active evening of bloodletting. DeMonaco does a good job of foreshadowing their part in the action. Meantime, James isn't too concerned with all the mayhem that will ensue at seven. He locks down his house with his state-of-the-art security system that makes the dwelling well-nigh impregnable. Ordinary burglars wouldn't be able to breach this system. Moreover, the system is equipped with surveillance cameras that enable the Sandins to monitor everything occurring around them. They celebrate the occasion with a dinner, but Zoey isn't acting civil during this preamble. Charlie is a bit of a home security whiz himself; he has built the equivalent of "Demonic Toys" doll that cruises around in a small, four-wheeled, remote-control contraption. Not long after lockdown, Charlie spots a homeless African-American Edwin Hodge of "Red Dawn" in fatigues wandering through the neighborhood. We aren't told how he got into the gated community. This stranger pleads desperately for mercy because he is the object of a manhunt. James' considerate son decides to forfeit everybody's safety and disarms the security system so the stranger can enjoy sanctuary. Of course, something has to shatter the calm in the Sandin household or "The Purge" wouldn't land the Sandins in the dire straits that follow. Before the night is over, nothing promises to be the same for the Sandins. Not long after they let the African-American into their home, a collection of male and female killers dressed in gaudy costumes with hatchets and high-powered rifles show up on their doorstep. Guess who they want and what they will do to get him?The performances are strong. Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey make a convincing couple, while Max Burkholder and Adelaide Kane are just as persuasive as their kids. The assailants who surround the Sandin residence are a creepy-looking bunch with their masks and costumes. "The Purge" is cut from the same cloth as movies like "The Hunger Games," "Panic Room," "Straw Dogs," "A Clockwork Orange," "The Strangers," "Lakeview Terrace," and "Assault on Precinct 13." Incidentally, not only did Ethan Hawke star in the remake of "Assault on Precinct 13," but also James DeMonaco penned the script. The biggest problem with DeMonaco's script is the reason the villains target the Sandin estate. You'd think that James would keep closer tabs on his son. The real surprises occur late in the third act after the villains have stormed the house. At one point, you may find yourself screaming back at the screen for our heroes to kill, kill, kill! Clearly, what DeMonaco has written is not as cynical as it seems. Although "The Purge" looks like something the NRA would endorse, you can bet that DeMonaco has crafted a satire to show how extreme the conditions would get to achieve such fascist prosperity.
