It's the afternoon of the yearly Purge and a couple has their car breakdown on the highway near downtown. A police sergeant gets ready to go out to hunt down the man that killed his son during the last Purge. Meanwhile, a mother and daughter lock down their apartment to hide out for the night. They just want to survive the night in L.A.
This movie is mainly about rich people picking a day where lower class people will kill one another, and the rich can kill poor people as well. This movie is about thugs and losers that care about nothing but killing people, and they will not have to go to jail for it.
The most stupid part of the movie is the characters. You know that the Purge day is coming, so why in the hell do you not get ready for it. You get your shopping and errands done the day before. You do not want until that afternoon thinking nothing bad will happen. Life is crazy, and you never know what is going to happen. The car will break down when you don't need it too. These people were stupid. Now for the mother and daughter, why was the furniture piled up against all of the door and windows? I would be sitting in the middle of empty rooms. There would be no way in hell some fat nasty nut job would be able to get in. The rest were just asking for it. I would never go out on a day like that. I would be the nicest guy in the land, so that no one would come to hunt me that night.
The idea of something like that happening is closer to coming true than you might like to believe. All it takes is a couple of people with a lot of money to get a bill passed to legally hunt people. There are a lot of nutty rich men out there that would love to kill other people, but the only thing that keeps them from doing it is the fact of possibly going to prison. Then you have all of the ragaholoics that are anger all the time, and they always want to fight. Everyone knows a few of those guys.
This movie is always an exploitation movies, like they use to make. The only real plot to this movie is murder and revenge, and the rich want to kill the poor. Who didn't know that though. It is something to watch, but not something that good. Enjoy, if you must.
