The Purge: Election Year (2016)
Critic Consensus: It isn't particularly subtle, but The Purge: Election Year's blend of potent jolts and timely themes still add up to a nastily effective diversion.

News & Interviews for The Purge: Election Year
Critic Reviews for The Purge: Election Year
DeMonaco serves up plenty of chases, shoot-outs and gory killings but, amid all the mayhem, he soon loses sight of the political subtext.
The result is a roiling casserole of bad-taste jolts - lynching trees, parricidal Lolitas, "murder tourism", gallows gags about racist mobs - but each one pulls its weight and makes its point.
The premise of The Purge never stopped being a nifty high concept. But this loses narrative interest after about 10 minutes.
Its politics are aggressively trashy and polarising - just like in America's real Election Year [but] despite its political drive, there is just too much 'B' under its bonnet.
Audience Reviews for The Purge: Election Year
Go for it if some more of the same appeals you.
There is no tension or subtlety to be found in this pointless sequel that doesn't offer anything that we haven't seen before in the previous two movies, just tiresome action and silly political commentary in times of presidential election (the whole "martyr" thing makes no sense).
Another offer of the same plot which delivers nothing more and nothing less than the first to have provided. Still entertaining though.
