The fourth entry in The Purge franchise heads back to where it all started as the recently elected New Founding Fathers conduct an “experiment” in Staten Island which is the titular First Purge that the local residents fight to survive.
Initially using one of the annual Purges to try and get revenge for his son, Leo Barnes defends a group of innocent people trapped outside and eventually becomes the head of security for anti-Purge presidential candidate Charlie Roan.
Starring a returning Frank Grillo, The Purge: Election Year maintains the schlocky, B-movie action tone of The Purge: Anarchy, even if isn’t quite as good as that entry in the series.
After surviving The Purge: Anarchy, Frank Grillo is back and protecting an anti-Purge senator making a run for the presidency but the New Founding Fathers target her in The Purge: Election Year.
With an actual budget, a change of location and a shift in genre to B action, The Purge: Anarchy is a huge step up from the original.
A young couple are trapped in a city during the annual Purge in The Purge: Anarchy, the sequel to last summer’s massive horror hit.
