The Purge: Election Year (Movie Review)

Release Date: July 1, 2016
Genre: Thriller
Synopsis: As a young girl, Sen. Charlie Roan survived the annual night of lawlessness that took the lives of her family members. As a presidential candidate, Roan is determined to end the yearly tradition of blood lust once and for all. When her opponents hatch a deadly scheme, the senator finds herself trapped on the streets of Washington, D.C., just as the latest Purge gets underway. Now, it's up to Leo Barnes (Frank Grillo), her head of security, to keep her alive during the next 12 hours of mayhem.

The third installment to The Purge series and it seems to have reached its downfall. As bloody as ever, this Purge tends to give you some of the most funniest moments throughout with its awful and cheesy jokes. Regardless, with the election running around and we have two different competitors butting at heads about the topic of purging or not too. 

Majority of the country is in favor of the Purge. Apparently, it makes their America great again. But does it though? Statistically speaking, it does lower crime rate, the economic costs of the country, etc, etc. But it means getting rid of those who are not protected. 

The Purge: Election Year really brings to your mind of how lucy some are to be under the protection of shelter, food, water, weapons... While some are just left defenseless. Not saying that there is some deep meaning behind these movies but that is definitely how I see it. 

With killings and twisted sense of humor, this movie was easy on the eyes and ears. So it will be a good 3.6 out of 5 stars. 

In other news, I cannot wait to watch Lights Out. 

Blog you later, awesome nerds.
