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.
