If you could commit any crime without consequences, what would you do? From the producer of Paranormal Activity and Sinister, comes an inventive thriller that dares you to survive the most dangerous night in America – The Purge – when all crime is legal for 12 hours. 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.

Terrible movie, terrible plot, waste of time and money. They could have been so much more than just woke propaganda. It’s unfortunate.

This film is filled with character decisions so flawed and outright stupid it defies imagination. An interesting premise is squandered almost immediately, topped off by insipid dialogue.

The purge is great but is a little slow sometimes but has terror that what the people out there can do with us? Is a great idea but needs to be more funny its a little slow but i love it.

The Purge takes it itself seriously because of it's rant of a future world were crime is all over the place. It's just the premise of this film is pointless and it becomes a home invasion thriller horror film like the strangers watch the strangers instead.

It's interesting, but needs a lot of work.

This is a good movie. Some people might find it depressing. I can see why. It has a interesting plot. I liked it.

This concept is uniquely horrifying. Imagine you live in a nice white upper middle class neighborhood and all the jealousy and hostility of your neighbors can be unleashed on you one night a year. You may be prepared but are you really safe. Suddenly soft-hearted kids can become a liability. Or are they? Watched all 4 films and this one remains the best. Took one star away because the resolution was vague.

Probably the worst movie I’ve ever seen. Anyone who thinks this is an interesting premise is wrong. The spice girls movie had more thought provoking premise than this.

thirtycastle645 2018-07-07
The movie was like Payday 2 but it’s a horror/thriller

It didn't open at all.

What would you do if you had 12 hours all to yourself? What would you do? Would you survive your own crime? The purge is the best movie. The best out of all 3! Are they making a fourth? What’s up,iTunes?

Grandma Kitties 2017-12-08
Excellent. A different spin on stopping crime!! A+

Toad and Ray Cheesey 2017-07-25
I thought this movie was gonna be a good movie but man was I wrong. I mean this movie had potential but missed out. It had a boring plot about people trapped in a house doing stupid stuff. This would never happen in real life. I was expecting more action but it's all at the end. $9.99 wasted.

Lana Bolling-Rinker 2017-04-17
I love the first one and the last one election year

KbCheetah 2017-01-21
This movie is kind of good. But its just ok. The ideal of letting all crime legal for 12 hours on one night in America. It is a interesting ideal. It is a ok movie.

double digit 2016-12-29
This is a good movie. Better then I thought. It was very intense. Talk about crazy events. Killing to unleashed your emotions that are inside you. Dang. Anyway, if you are into crazy movies check this one out.

QingUilE 2016-12-07
Very original series and nothing like you've ever seen before

Radb0y 2016-12-04
Not as bad as the second decent

Jim62723 2016-11-05
The overall idea was interesting but the movie was just poorly executed.

EmojiGirl1059 2016-10-25
This is a very good movie if you love thrillers and horror movies

Mahratu 2016-08-27
By far, the best thing about this movie is the premise of the Purge night, itself. The filmmakers did not really deliver the full-blown mayhem that I expected or the premise truly deserves. That said, the film is very enjoyable as late night thriller.

burbundude 2016-07-17
Not saying this movie is bad, but staring at a blank wall would be comparable in terms of entertainment.

Swardak125 2016-06-30
It was honestly ok really boring tho

JazzieTheBoss 2016-03-11
That Stinking kid is the whole reason for this plot!

Love this movie if ppl say it bad they have nothing good about them it a really good and scary movie hater gonna hate that hate that hate this movie it good ppl watch it

"TWO THUMBS UP!!" 2016-01-28
The Purge, is DEFINITELY a REALLY good film, & noteworthy. but I must admit, this film isn't as pulse pounding as the sequel, here's why. The first film was, presumably, the film that incorporated the exposition for the entire trilogy to build upon.

Circumstances were pathetic. Don't waste your time.

Ghvvtfctxd 2015-11-01
Very entertaining! Full of goosebumps, thrills, and sadistic fun! It's a film that will leave you clinging on to your armrest, fearing that someone might break in your home. Will you stay behind locked doors, release the beast, or risk your life to save a stranger? It's a horror flick worth watching. Blessed the Founding Fathers of America and the United Nation. May God be with you. (P. S. I have a ringtone of the the Purge siren. 😚)

ThePilgrim96 2015-09-25
Murder and crime is legal for 12 hours, anybody has the freedom to do whatever they want, so what do the filmmakers decide to do? Show us a boring, generic home invasion thriller with boring character development and an awfully boring pace. Why introduce this kind of interesting concept to us if you're not going to focus on it at all? Not only that, there was hardly any action at all throughout the entire film, and even when it does manage to show us that, it's only within the last half hour, and it's not that great. The problem is that the movie ignores it's own originality to instead focus on concepts that are, well, unoriginal. It's not the worst film I've ever seen to focus on this much unoriginality, but because it comes across as a stated above, a boring home invasion thrillr, it's just not worth viewing.

This movie has a very intriguing storyline and the plot is great in the beginning. However, the end has way too many overused cliches. It could have been much better, but overall, it was not a waste of my time.

sean2114 2015-02-16
I thought the movie had a good premise but it was poorly executed (no pun intended). It was mundane, predictible and the plot was poorly developed. I woulnd't waste my money on this movie in any way, shape or form. If you have HBO record it and wath it one night when you can't fall asleep.

Cool movie, not the best one but it's interesting.

StephCarter78 2014-03-13
Good & creepy - my kind of movie!

Purge had potential but failed. Idiot people making idiotic choices. Moved sucked monkey balls.

YelloFello128 2014-03-04
This is my first review because I felt compelled to let whoever is reading this know that this is one of the worst movie I have ever watched. There were just some many flaws in within the movie. The idea was great, but very very poorly executed and not well thought out.

19dog1983 2014-02-24
It is a good action movie.

DJ954 2014-02-16
Horrible movie, waste of time and money. Such a good concept blown on the unbelievable and unrealistic!

Fati film.

CampyCamper 2014-01-28
There’s an appeal in watching Bad Horror Movies. Stuff that’s campy, cliche, and poorly produced ends up being funny or nostalgic. The Purge isn’t a bad movie. It’s just a really unremarkable one. There are some marginally decent moments. The interesting premise is wasted. The home invasion builds predictably. The chance for an impactful, disturbing, terrifying ending is present but wasted in a very predictable way. It’s easy to be hard on this movie because, given it’s big budget and great premise you can easily see at every turn how this thing could have been so much better.

Nia Merp 2014-01-25
I think the movie was wonderful. The suspense the thrill keeps you on the edge of your seat. Great movie.

but great to watch!

Panther5547 2014-01-22
This movie purged me of $5.99 and an hour and half of my life I'll never get back.

I feel I have to stick up for this movie. I liked it, and then loved it when I watched it a second time. The mother was my favorite because she is such a strong character, and character is exactly what you get after seeing this movie. Well done :)
