As Carl Black gets the opportunity to move his family out of Chicago in hope of a better life, their arrival in Beverly Hills is timed with that city's annual purge, where all crime is legal for twelve hours.
After settling his differences with a Japanese PoW camp commander, a British colonel co-operates to oversee his men's construction of a railway bridge for their captors - while oblivious to a plan by the Allies to destroy it.
The Black family is getting out of Chicago in hopes of a better life. After Carl Black (Mike Epps) comes into some unexpected funds, he takes his family and leaves the hustling lifestyle behind for something better. Carl, his new wife Lorena (Zulay Henao), son Carl Jr., daughter Allie Black (Bresha Webb) and cousin Cronut (Lil Duval) pack up and move to Beverly Hills. Turns out, Carl couldn't have picked a worse time to move. They arrive right around the time of the annual purge, when all crime is legal for twelve hours. Written by

No scary movies anymore? Sound fine, but I reckon we get this instead. And while it does have to say something about racism in America (yes still a thing), it also gets repetitive and sort of boring in its attempts to make fun of the Purge series. The Purge is now so over the top, it should be easy to make fun of it.
Way easier than what we see here and while there are some fun ideas thrown at you, not many stick (pun intended). There are a lot of guest appearances, one in particular by Charlie Murphy, that might be uncomfortable for some to watch, considering the fact he recently passed away. But those feelings aside, it does not really have the quality to entertain fully as it could
