6.9/10.The idea of all crime legal for one night out of the year is intriguing.Mainly when you consider what Congress gets away with all year long.Still I find it to be one of the better done home invasion movies with Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey doing a pretty good job.They go from a not caring well to do couple to one fighting for survival alongside their kids.The atmosphere almost reminds me of a mix of Halloween, Assault On Precinct 13, and Night Of The Living Dead.The young Purgers are especially creepy, obsessed with killing Edwin Hodge.I found him also to be pretty good.A decent start to the franchise.


The Purge mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Ethan Hawke is talking through the safety glass in the barricade to the polite leader of the gang outside, the leader shoots the loud-mouth guy standing to the right of him, using the pistol in his left hand across his chest. Immediately after that they show a top shot of him dropping his right hand holding the gun. (00:46:00)

More quotes from The Purge

Question: Who exactly are "the new founding fathers"? It never actually says. I read an internet post that said they were not singular people, but a collection of multi-national companies that took over the government after a near nation wide collapse of the US.

Answer: The only information the original script offers is the company that took over the government, their name is "Arcon". Other than that, there is no other specific name nor is there an answer to what kind of company Arcon really is.
