Caution Minor Spoilers 

The Purge: Election Year was directed by James DeMonaco and was released on July 1st, 2016. The movie runs for 1 hour 45 minutes and is Rated R. This is the third movie of the series. The movies are all about how one night a year, the government sanctions a 12-hour period in which citizens can commit any crime they wish — including murder — without fear of punishment or imprisonment.In which the characters in the movies are shown struggling to survive the night. In the first Purge, A family Lets ¬†a homeless man into their home who was seeking protection, little did they know a dangerous purge group had been following him.

In the Purge Anarchy, as a rebellion against the purge is forming the characters of the movie are preparing to survive. Leo, a sergeant who lost his son, plans a vigilante mission of revenge during the mayhem. However, instead of a death-dealing avenger, he becomes the unexpected protector of four innocent strangers who desperately need his help if they are to survive the night. Also running into the rebellion receiving their help.

The Purge election your is about a senator named Charlie Roan who as a young girl survived the annual night of lawlessness that took the lives of her family members. As a presidential candidate, Roan is determined to end the yearly tradition of blood lust once and for all. When her opponents hatch a deadly scheme, the senator finds herself trapped on the streets of Washington, D.C., just as the latest Purge gets underway. Now, it’s up to Leo Barnes(returning character from the purge anarchy), her head of security, to keep her alive during the next 12 hours of mayhem.

What I Liked:

The movie parts didn’t drag on and were really straight forward. This kept my interest in the movie by making everything that happened understandable. I also liked that the movie was very action packed while still having a good story line.There are obvious goals the characters try to meet throughout the plot.Showed many scenes of how much worse the purge has gotten over the years and why it is a very important mission to stop it.

What I Didn’t Like:

They could have let some of the parts go on just a little bit longer than they did just for detail’s sake everything in the movie seemed a bit rushed.And there was fairly little details about the characters except for bits and pieces shared throughout the movie. the Character Leo is a bit more uptight than he was in the Purge anarchy but still did a good job. I did not however like how over dramatic reaction of Kimmy over a candy bar she had tried to steal.

Warning this movie is rated R and have adults approval before seeing this movie.
