It’s Episode 75! Eleanor and Elizabeth return for Eleanor’s choice The Purge, the first film in the Purge series. The Purge (2013) is what we’ll call the original Purge as they’ve confusingly released a film in the series called The First Purge (2018) that is set before The Purge. In this Purge Ethan Hawke and Lena Heady are the home invasion victims after their (not so secure) secure house is targeted when they take in a Purge prize (homeless man). Subtlety is not The Purge’s style, it hammers home it’s high concept with the same glee and force of the participants doing their purging. If you ignore that the whole film hinges on an early single action and buy into its concept you’ll have a lot of fun with its unapologetic style.
[supsystic-tables id='77']Overall The Purge scores 3.82, if there was additional points for an under 90 minutes runtime it would have scored full marks there, but there isn’t so 3.82 it is.
