The Purge Synopsis
If on one night every year, you could commit any crime without facing consequences, what would you do? In The Purge, a speculative thriller that follows one family over the course of a single night, four people will be tested to see how far they will go to protect themselves when the vicious outside world breaks into their home.

In an America wracked by crime and overcrowded prisons, the government has sanctioned an annual 12-hour period in which any and all criminal activity—including murder—becomes legal. The police can't be called. Hospitals suspend help. It's one night when the citizenry regulates itself without thought of punishment. On this night plagued by violence and an epidemic of crime, one family wrestles with the decision of who they will become when a stranger comes knocking.

When an intruder breaks into James Sandin's (Ethan Hawke) gated community during the yearly lockdown, he begins a sequence of events that threatens to tear a family apart. Now, it is up to James, his wife, Mary (Lena Headey), and their kids to make it through the night without turning into the monsters from whom they hide.

They all join the previously cast Frank Grillo (The Grey), which technically gives this film more star power than the first film, in which Ethan Hawke was the only redeeming value. Returning writer-director James DeMonaco really needs to trim a lot of fat off of this premise if he expects audiences to make this sequel as big a success as its predecessor. (The Purge earned $89 million on a $3 million budget.)...

Weekend Box Office: Audiences Prefer A Bad Purge To A Weak Internship Weekend Box Office: Audiences Prefer A Bad Purge To A Weak Internship
It was a familiar tune at the box office this weekend. A second rate, low budget, hardly worth your time horror flick raced to the top while a moderately interesting but poorly executed concept comedy (lead by two actors who are joining the ever growing group of middle age comedians struggling to find roles that match their age) floundered in with only modest success. All in all, there was a number one, but there were no winners....

The Purge Trailer Brings Thrills To A Goofy Premise The Purge Trailer Brings Thrills To A Goofy Premise
Considering the film is touted as being “From the producer of Paranormal Activity and Sinister,” there’s really no reason to think this film was going to be any more realistic. But Hawke was the force that anchored Sinister’s somewhat silly premise, there’s no reason to think he won’t do the same here. ...
