The Purge: Election Year (2016)
Critic Consensus: It isn't particularly subtle, but The Purge: Election Year's blend of potent jolts and timely themes still add up to a nastily effective diversion.

News & Interviews for The Purge: Election Year
Critic Reviews for The Purge: Election Year
Like most "exploitation movies," the "Purge" franchise is deeply moralistic at heart.
The action is largely routine and the dialogue rarely more than functional, but DeMonaco, marshalling the franchise's best production values yet, shrewdly taps into the angry zeitgeist.
The Purge: Election Year represents writer/director James DeMonaco's attempt to squeeze one more movie out of a premise that has run dry.
The writer/director has a lot to say, but this neo-grindhouse framework isn't built for complexity. Still, the film is just bonkers enough to work.
It would be one thing to bait the viewer's blood lust and then punish them for it. But the films command an audience that's enchanted by its displays of blood-drenched yahoos in kooky masks satisfying their barely repressed psychopathy.
Audience Reviews for The Purge: Election Year
Go for it if some more of the same appeals you.
There is no tension or subtlety to be found in this pointless sequel that doesn't offer anything that we haven't seen before in the previous two movies, just tiresome action and silly political commentary in times of presidential election (the whole "martyr" thing makes no sense).
Another offer of the same plot which delivers nothing more and nothing less than the first to have provided. Still entertaining though.
