The Purge: Elec­tion Year

Pol­i­tics and vi­o­lence go hand-in-hand...

TV Times - - Film Guide -

Here’s the third in the se­ries of deliri­ously pumped-up, high-con­cept hor­ror thrillers set in a dystopian near-fu­ture where all crime is le­gal on one night of the year. The cor­rupt rulers, the New Found­ing Fathers of Amer­ica, are us­ing the an­nual Purge Night as a means of culling the coun­try’s lower or­ders, un­til lib­eral sen­a­tor El­iz­a­beth Mitchell cam­paigns for the pres­i­dency, vow­ing to end the Purge for good. First, though, she has to sur­vive Purge Night with the aid of Frank Grillo’s se­cu­rity chief... The satire and po­lit­i­cal com­men­tary may be thickly ap­plied, but this is one tense and bloody ride.
