A Good Cast And Ambitious Plot Helps The Purge Get It's Slow, Rather Tedious Pacing.

What a waste of time... not entertaining AT ALL!!! Not encouraged to watch the new one this summer!

It is very intelligent for typical horror movie watchers, but as someone who almost only watched good horror movies, I can tell you that this isn't as good as some say.

Terrifying but interesting and sometimes funny

Lost its identity, but a fun movie.

A fantastic and intriguing premise gets squandered by too many hands in the kitchen and not sure what to do with a golden idea besides rush it into theaters.

Anyone tries to kill me during Purge, i'd get em the next day. Always thinking outside the box , me.

This was a great movie in house that is overwhelmed by killers, it was a great thriller

Interesting premise and invokes some thought-provoking but inevitably the film unravels into a tired, contrived game of cat and mouse with shallow characters you don't give a damn about. Rather boring and largely forgettable.

A horrible movie that could have worked if it was a dark comedy. It not only takes itself seriously, but it actually believes people are like this....

This movie is just an insult to everyone's intelligence.

I don't know why it got such terrible reviews.... Great concept, great flick.

No better than expected. Excellently creepy bad guys. No explanation re: why Redshirt saved Cersei.

A great premise is somewhat sadly mistreated in this movie. That's not to say it was terrible and not at least worth a rental down the road. However with crime only being completely legal for one day with no real explanation as to why and not much diving into the moral aspect of actions taken and their resulting effects, it leaves you wondering about the remaining 364 days of the year.

Could've been great with a premise, and cast like that
½ March 16, 2016
Worst movie ever. Waste of my time. Everything was stupid about it. Predictable and retarted. Hated it. Would give it zero stars if possible.

Count me as one of the few that went in expecting very little but came out very impressed. It has it's fair share of scares via tension and suspense. And it's visually stimulating so your eyes are glued to the screen. Can't ask for much more from this highly diluted and increasingly un-scary genre.

The Purge is a disappointing movie. It is about a wealthy family is held hostage for harboring the target of a murderous syndicate during the Purge, a 12-hour period in which any and all crime is legalized. Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey give horrible performances. The script is badly written. James DeMonaco did a terrible job directing this movie. I was not impressed with this motion picture.

Wasted potential and a lot of stupid actions from the characters
