Brace Yourself For "The First Purge"
Just in time for Independence Day, the annual Purge has come to spread its bloody message of a "better" America. As we know from the previous three films of the franchise, The Purge helps lower crime and help unemployment according to The New Founding Fathers of America (NFFA).
The prequel shows the dangerous and almost too close to reality truth of what may lie later in our own history. The NFFA proposes that Staten Island be the location for their experiment in which they hope will help the economy and get others to "purge" and release their rage with an incentive....if they survive the 12 hours.
I found myself seeing some very realistic moments being that what's going on under the Trump Administration not to mention the recent trend of calling the cops while Black. As you may experience and guess...it's no question the REAL truth of the Purge is to rid those of a lesser economy so that the rich and privileged can rebuild.
At the end of it all, those who love the Purge franchise may enjoy the thrills and often stupidity of some of the characters. If you're looking for an alternative way to celebrate the 4th go see this.
Also get ready for the 10 part TV series of the franchise coming in September. Watch both trailers below!
