: Movie Review - Purge Election Year 6.5/10
The third installment of THE PURGE franchise is out just in time to totally creep out your 4th of July! THE PURGE: ELECTION YEAR stars Frank Grillo as the head of security for a US Senator running for President with an anti-purge platform. Her unpopular stances have made her a target for The Purge founders, The New Founding Fathers, (NFFA) and Grillo must get her through the night safely. Along their travels they meet up with a renegade gang of [also] anti purgers, and wrong place/wrong time good samaritans who come to their aid. The film is written and directed by James DeMonaco who wrote and directed the first two and co-stars Elizabeth Mitchell (LOST), Mykelti Williamson (FOREST GUMP) and Kyle Secor (HOMICIDE).
We gave it Justice, mostly for Grillo's hardworking action-star ways (give him more lead roles please!) and the overall entertainment value. Not as terrifying as the second and with some added cheese and bad lines, but it still delivers on fun summer action.
6.5/10 on the Justice & Doom Meter
