Highly Suspect Reviews: The Purge: Election Year

This third chapter of James DeMonaco’s Purge series continues the tradition of opening the scope of the story. Whereas the first was a home, the second was a city, this film focuses on the country. Elizabeth Mitchell is running for President on a anti-Purge ticket, and the New Founding Fathers party, who are heavily invested in the continuation of the Purge (IE: evil) lift the ban on government workers from being Purged for what could be the final year. Of course, so they can take out Mitchell during the 12 hours of chaos and then their precious Purge doesn’t have to end. What they don’t realize is that when you’ve got Frank Grillo as your personal security, no amount of Nazi black ops guys are gonna be enough to get the job done. Chris, Richard, and Elliott purge their feelings in the review.

Written by

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
  • I usually can turn my brain off for unbelievable set-ups, but I never could for the Purge movies. I’m guess I’m like Jeff from Rage Select in that I think when government order collapses society wouldn’t devolve into complete choas and people would easily realize that cooperation is a lot better than mindlessly killing everyone

      I really like Jeff’s thoughts on that, but I’ve read way too many history books to believe for a second that people won’t slaughter each other in mass, or won’t sell their own children for a slab of dog meat two or three weeks after things start to go bad. I hope people would work together, but history disagrees.

    I like the first “Purge movie”. It’s no materpeace but I like the concept and I can streach my disbelive enough to buy a word where it “works” (or at least people acept the idea)

    Are you describing me when you say pale and shakey?
