I'm just like WTH is happening?
28 September 2018 | by howanchengSee all my reviews

I love the concept of the purge, heck I follow every film hoping to see a great out come.

But this series is seriously confusing, so many stories to tell with no actual build up, it is making the series much more confusing the more you watch it. Secondly actors are not all great, there area few selected good ones but yeah almost everyone is a meh. I honestly hope they could make this better, this is just dragging, everything is just repetitive and slow.

Anyway Purge concept story is still a great idea and I'd still watch it HOPING to see a better outcome
