In the not too distant future, the US is in a state of economic revival as unemployment is at 1% and crime is at an all time low. The catch is that, in order to achieve this stability, a yearly event called “the purge” is created where every crime is legal for 12 hours. Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey star as a wealthy couple who chose to opt out of any criminal activity and ride out the purge in their fortified home. However, their daughter allows a man being chased entry into their home and the family is now the target of a gang of young hoodlums. It’s an interesting concept but it looks like it only be used to initiate a solid looking but normal home invasion thriller. The movie is out in May and you can check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
