To push the crime rate below one percent for the rest of the year, the New Founding Fathers of America test a sociological theory that vents aggression for one night in one isolated community. But when the violence of oppressors meets the rage of the others, the contagion will explode from the trial-city borders and spread across the nation.

My quick rating - 5,5/10. I am sure you are aware of the story, and the latest, although "first" movie in the purge series tries to show how it all started. I applaud the idea which does fit quite nicely into the TV show in case you are watching it. As with everything, this shows how heavily involved the government is in what happens when they attempt the first purge on Staten Island. The whole idea of allowing lawlessness like this on a New York island brought back memories of a classic "Escape from New York" Without the future being a part of it, it just had that kind of feel to it. The idea of dropping crime rates by allowing everyone to just get their angst out is intersting, and the underlying lies those using it to instead control the population really isn't that far fetched. As the story follows a few individuals throughout surving the purge, the creators took the time to give the characters just enough personality to make you care what happens to them. This is what highlighted it a bit for me since beyond that, it runs kind of bland. Overall, not shocking, nor surprising but still solid enough.
