Product Description

A family is held hostage for harboring the target of a murderous syndicate during the Purge, a 12-hour period in which any and all crime is legalized.

Amazon.com

Ever wanted to go wild and act on all those anarchic feelings of pent-up rage that fester as obsessions until they make you crazy? In the world of the near future portrayed in The Purge, the government has come up with a solution that has led to a virtually crime-free society. One night a year, taking action on those bottled-up emotions is absolutely legal. For 12 hours anything goes, up to and including murder, without judgment or punishment of any kind. Yes, it's preposterous, but the movie limits the scenario to a tested formula--a family holed up together on an island (their luxury home) to fight off evil--that boils the premise down to microcosm. As such, The Purge is a taut thriller that often falls back on tropes yet manages to sustain chills and surprises in spite of a few weary devices made popular by countless horror movies. Ethan Hawke plays James Sandin, a devoted family man who has made a fortune selling security systems to the upscale, gated-community homeowners who want to protect themselves from common folk hungry for the taste of blood on Purge night. The Sandins have no need to purge and eschew violence, so during the Purge they lock down the house (thanks to James's top-of-the-line products and services) and wait for the mayhem to pass. But even the best security system is only as strong as its operator, and James's young son is too sympathetic to let a homeless man be killed by marauding purgers wearing spooky masks, so he breaks protocol and gives the man sanctuary. The purgers don't like that, so they threaten to kill everyone if James does not give up the hostage. Set entirely in the darkened maze of the house, a bloody cat-and-mouse game begins and many players engage in the murderous stakes, including James's teenage daughter's boyfriend, who would like to bury the axe he's been grinding right into James's head. And when the security system proves to be not so impenetrable after all, the frights become genuinely scary, as do the responses of the Sandin family, not to mention their neighbors. It turns out many of them have been James's customers and hold a grudge against his exploitation, thereby nurturing their resentment until this year's Purge. The Purge's premise would have been intriguing to explore outside the confines of a single incident in one home, but the scares keep coming, building to an effective sense of tension and dread. It's all released as dawn breaks after the hell night. The Purge ends on an unexpected, satisfying note, even though many of the characters undoubtedly walk away with some lingering obsessions. Just wait until next year. --Ted Fry

    The opening scenes introduce us to a dystopian futuristic America in which we have overcome staggering recessions, unemployment and crime rates. Everyone seems happy and at peace with the means that provide this thriving economy.

    So what do they have to thank? The Purge. The Purge is a 12-hour period during which all crime is legal and all police, medical and emergency services are suspended. Radio and news casts bombard viewers with soma-popping Brave New World mantras about "unleashing the beast within" to "cleanse [or purge] our inherently violent nature."

    What's most interesting about this society is that The Purge is embraced by most everyone. Sure, there are media debates on how The Purge "targets" the poor who can't afford to defend themselves, but even the wealthy--with their armored home security systems--socialize, talk about what they're doing during The Purge or "purge" together in hunting parties.

    All of the pro-Purge political views are presented through an upper class filter--more specifically, the pro-Purge mindset of James Sandin (Ethan Hawke; Sinister, Daybreakers), a home security system salesman who lives in a ritzy neighborhood full of fake, well-to-do smiling neighbors. This year, instead of attending a party, James is spending a quiet purge with his wife Mary (Lena Headey; Game of Thrones, Dredd, The Cave, The Brothers Grimm), son Charlie (Max Burkholder) and daughter Zooey (Adelaide Kane).

    James' family is less embracing of The Purge than the rest of the neighborhood but, for fear of death, they abide by the social standard but do not themselves partake. Catching more of our attention is James.

    Nine Things About the Movie “The Purge” [USA, 2013]

    1. Despite how it was advertised, this is not a horror movie. The sooner you realize this, the better.

    2. This is a dark, violent, well-acted, and uncomfortable allegory about the American class system.

    3. The movie takes place over a span of 13 hours. Ethan Hawke plays a well-meaning, but rather rigid, father that lives in a very wealthy gated community with his family. They settle into their home for the evening behind their state-of-the-art security system to keep out of The Purge. The Purge is a night where all crime is legal. This is designed to let Americans vent their frustration, anger, and violent impulses, so that the rest of the year everyone can get along better. Anyway, the two kids end up compromising the security of their house, and the family must defend their lives from psycho college students who want things the family has.

    3 There are some parts of the movie that, at first, seem dumb or unrealistic. But if you look at those instances as metaphor, the whole movie unlocks and begins to make sense.

    4. This movie is less concerned with telling an actual story, and more concerned with examining issues of entitlement, envy, the dangers of using God as a foundation of patriotism, and the deep dehumanization of others (as well as the self) that is required to keep those things going.

    5. The home-invasion thriller part of the movie is well-acted and has some surprises.

    6. There is a lot of violence in this movie, but not like some people expect. It is not about showing rampant carnage so that the audience can experience their own Purge vicariously. The epic idea of the movie is scaled way down to become an intimate experience.

    The Purge is creative for using the idea of making crime legal, the characters are what you expect to be which are a normal people living in their secured house to be protected by the killers outside on Purge, the plot made sense I didn't know what to expect and last the idea of being invaded at the family's house was ok but I prefer the sequel because it takes place in the city where most of the killings are happening. This movie is great, a great modern day thriller/Horror. I recommend this to any horror movie lover out there.

    I am so mad I wasted 90 minutes or however long this movie was. The daughter of the main character was definitely TSTL and should have kicked it immediately.
    And also, it was just bad all around.

    Basically I was disappointed. Apparently the follow up film is more like I was anticipating with this one.
    The twist with the neighbors is interesting, but that's about as far as I went.
    I wouldn't buy it again. I will buy the newer one to see if it's more of what I wanted to see.

    The Purge has an intriguing concept. The crime rate and unemployment are at an all time low and every year, America sections off one 12-hour interval known as 'The Purge' in which every law is temporarily suspended. More times than not, people use this time to feed their blood lust. In one very short segment, we are told that besides 'the purge' being an excuse for Americans to seriously indulge themselves, it also results in the deaths of many homeless people who are seen as drains on America's economy. Unfortunately, besides the interesting premise, The Purge is an utterly unimaginative and ridiculous home invasion movie. Its biggest misstep is failing to go deeper into the political themes, which are almost unbelievably shallow. Every time the film tricks the audience into thinking it might actually have something important to say, it takes a step back and someone gets offed in the most predictable way imaginable. The acting and directing are equally uninspired. Such a shame. It's very possible that if it had been more fleshed out and it was directed by someone with a dark visual flair (David Fincher), or maybe a sense of humor (Tim Burton), The Purge could have been something great.
