The First Purge

100 Movies before we move: #65

Excellent use of smoke and blood splatter in combat. Creative contact lenses with the different colours to show the active participants. The political angle was too strong and the psychological angle too shallow. Fun movie with an epic final act. 9/10.

This series gets better with each movie. While the political machinations become less allegorical, it still manages to engage with the characters and impressive set pieces. This movie could be described as ‘Escape from New York’ turns into a junior ‘The Raid’ and be underselling how well it does. An excellent cast does well setting the stage for what was to come (in the first three movies). 9/10.
