Blake Simmons and her fiancé, Colin Ford, are invited to the home of Blake's mother, Laurel, to wait out the night of the purge, however, it is a trap that was constructed to kill Blake and collect her life insurance the next day.
It's been two years since Leo Barnes (Frank Grillo) stopped himself from a regrettable act of revenge on Purge Night. Now serving as head of security for Senator Charlie Roan (Elizabeth Mitchell), his mission is to protect her in a run for president and survive the annual ritual that targets the poor and innocent. But when a betrayal forces them onto the streets of D.C. on the one night when no help is available, they must stay alive until dawn...or both be sacrificed for their sins against the state.
The gun Laney keeps in the triage van is a Serbu Super Shorty 12 gauge. It's technically classified as an 'Any Other Weapon', not a shotgun. See more »

We will now purge. We will torture you and violate your flesh. Remove your skin and share in your blood. This is the American way.

This movie was way over the top and a good conclusion to the Purge trilogy. There were moments in the movie were I thought the actors were pushing and action too crazy though.
I wish the intro scene with the guy talking in the chair somehow came up again later, because i thought that the scene had some importance. The whole time watching I was waiting for the scene to be scene again, or at least some explanation to it.
I really liked Joe Dixon played by Wykelti Williamson, he was great with the humor in the film. Frank Grillo delivered another solid performance as the protector of senator Charlie Roan in this movie. The narrative of this movie is really great visually. I think the script was okay, their weren't too many clichéd lines. The twist with the involvement of the government officials was really interesting and made this addition memorable.
My one complaint though not a big one was the School girl wanting to kill Joe Dixon just because she didn't get candy. This choice in writing did not make the choice to purge good enough in my opinion, but what they heck. The Candy girl scenes to me seemed like something miley cyrus would make if she directed a horror film.
The church scene made me a little uncomfortable. It was weird.The priest was creepy looking. And i don't understand his involvement other than looks, and his actions towards the end.
The movie definitely will satisfy Purge fans. Any comments please, help. I want to start reviewing movies.
