Could Have Been Better
I wasn't as impressed with this movie as I thought I would be based off of the previews. When I originally saw the previews I was very intrigued and definitely wanted to go see it in theaters. Fortunately, I got side tracked with other things and didn't make it into the movie theater to see it.
However, after watching the movie I felt that it didn't meet my expectations. I thought that it was definitely a good concept, a good story line also. One question I would like to ask is, If this is suppose to be about an event called "The Purge" (which by definition is a way for people to release the anger they hold inside by allowing all crimes, including murder, to be legal for 12 hours) Why is the only crime shown, murder? Why wasn't anyone robbing banks or vandalizing public property, etc? I feel there could have been more done with it.
Overall, it wasn't all that exciting, in fact I'd say there were quit a few dead moments that failed to earn my interest. It was a let down.
