The Purge: Election Year review

MV5BMjMxNzk2OTQ1OV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMTI2NjU5ODE@._V1_SY1000_CR0,0,631,1000_AL_Leo Barnes returns for another night where murder runs rampant as he tries to protect a potential U.S. president in the third installment of the suspense series, The Purge: Election Year.

Barnes (Frank Grillo) new job as head of security for Senator Roan (Elizabeth Mitchell) is extremely difficult due to Roan’s passion to stop The Purge. The movie starts with Roan’s family getting killed in The Purge. Roan’s platform to eliminate The Purge causes a round table of white older men to gather and plot to end Roan once and for all when The Purge starts.

After Roan feels she needs to stay at her house to convince voters she is like them, Barnes goes to great measures to build a fortress around her. Unfortunately, they are betrayed by two moles and narrowly escape a group of mercenaries. Now, out on the streets and in the open, they are luckily found by Joe Dixon (Mykelti Willamson) and Marcos (Joseph Soria), two average joes protecting a store. With the help of a vigilante, Laney (Betty Gabriel), the five of them band together to survive this chaotic world.

This film was a decent watch; simple story, characters given time to understand them, bloody deaths, and enough suspense to keep you wondering what’s next. Purge 3 actually delivered a bit of humour in this dark setting. You will not see award-winning act and it can feel like the world is insane at times, but if you realize what this pseudo-horror flick is suppose to deliver, it succeeds in most aspects.
