In 2040, the sole survivor of a Purge killing is now a US senator (Mitchell) running for President, and she and her head of security find themselves out in the streets on Purge night. Exciting, brutal and dumb in equal measures, although it runs out of steam in its final act.

The Purge: Election Year

22 Aug 20163 stars

An overarching narrative means that the latest entry in the Purge franchise makes for visceral but unwieldy viewing

The Purge franchise has never quite lived up to its spiteful premise – that for one night a year all crime is legal in America. Written and directed once again by James DeMonaco, this third entry is exciting, brutal and dumb in about equal measures.
