Reviews: The Purge: Election Year (2016)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • David Bax @ Battleship Pretension
    • Excerpt: DeMonaco’s successfully singular vision is something to celebrate but it also means he must take equal credit for the films’ failings.
  • Matt Donato @ We Got This Covered
    • Excerpt: The weakest Purge movie is still pretty passable, despite its more cartoonish, action-centric mindset.
  • James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture
  • Mark H. Harris @ Black Horror Movies
  • Wesley Lovell @ Cinema Sight
  • Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See
    • Excerpt: Escalates the saga to an absurdist end.
  • Jared Mobarak @ The Film Stage
    • Excerpt: DeMonaco is having fun this time around by injecting as much carnage as possible. Election Year therefore becomes the most graphically over-the-top of the series with a new depraved purging example on every corner.
  • Nuno Reis @ SciFiWorld Portugal
    • Excerpt: A saga “The Purge” continua a fazer a sua missão e o terceiro pode ser visto no seguimento dos anteriores ou em separado. Desde que não se incomodem com todo o non-sense que já vem de trás, com os estereótipos aqui utilizados (agora até a Igreja metem aos barulho), nem com a violência gratuita com dois laivos extra de loucura, é entretenimento.
  • James Roberts @ Glide Magazine
    • Excerpt: Like all satire, the commentary given provides a dark mirror to our own world, forcing us to consider where we’re at and where we stand within our own society. It’s not only easy to draw comparisons with between The Purge Election Year and our America, it’s hard not to.
