The Purge
2013
In a crime-ridden future when overtaxed cops let murder and other crimes rule the streets one night a year, someone's knocking at James Sandin's door. Tormented by an unknown thrill-killer, Sandin makes a desperate stand to save his wife and family.

Erik Bates: “It was ok.”

I loved the concept. I just wish that they could have found a more organic way to create tension than the age-old "stupid kid does something he damn well knows he shouldn't do under penalty of death" device. That aside, there was some suspense, and a couple twists along the way that kept me guessing, but when the credits rolled, I was hoping for just a little more to push this movie into "it ruled" standing.
