THE PURGE: REVIEW — Some time in the near future, life is almost perfect. Horror movies are intelligent, well-crafted and original, featuring complex believable well drawn characters in the grip of terrifying situations through no fault of their own and giving audiences cathartic thrills.
But this situation is only maintained because of the dubious and slightly incredible innovation that every year a really terrible cliched horror movie with dumb ass idiotic moron characters do dumb ass stupid things as a way of freeing society from the cliches that used to plague it. That movie is The Purge.
It stars Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey and is by the guy who wrote The Negotiator. Next year, there will be a Purge 2.
