Movie Review: The Purge
Mike Pierce wrote this review 3 years ago
I finally watched THE PURGE yesterday and I gotta say...I liked the trailer more than I liked the movie. (lol) I really wanted to REALLY like THE PURGE but yeah...it fell a little short for me.
There were a few things I did like about it...the violence. That was nice. The actual storyline - letting people go crazy one night to murder, burn and stuff...that was different. I hadn't seen that before. Ethan Hawke was cool. Lena Headey as a NICE mom was different - not used to seeing her like that. (lol) Now for Adelaide Kane...I think I found a new crush. Yep. She plays Ethan Hawke’s daughter in the movie…and before anyone says anything…she’s old enough in REAL LIFE. (lol)
I know some of ya’ll are thinking – “Mike, it sounds like you liked the movie.” Yeahhhhh – blah, blah, blah. I think the trailer pumped it up too much for me. The kids were a pain in the ass. I didn't understand why they kept running around the house and hiding from their parents when all hell was breaking loose. IDIOTS. The ending...yeah. It didn't work too well. Rumor has it – THE PURGE 2 is supposed to come out. I hope I like that one more.
I give THE PURGE.. 2 ½ out of 5 popcorns!
