Storyline

It's been two years since Leo Barnes (Frank Grillo) stopped himself from a regrettable act of revenge on Purge Night. Now serving as head of security for Senator Charlie Roan (Elizabeth Mitchell), his mission is to protect her in a run for president and survive the annual ritual that targets the poor and innocent. But when a betrayal forces them onto the streets of D.C. on the one night when no help is available, they must stay alive until dawn...or both be sacrificed for their sins against the state.

Amusing for all the wrong reasons
22 July 2016 | by johnwiltshireauthorSee all my reviews

You just kinda have to watch this train wreck of a movie with brain in neutral. If you think about it too much you dwell on the image of the Nazi white priest in the church insanely gunning down the innocent homeless black people. Or you find the depiction of the baddie resurfacing when you least expect it: the white bald head, the Swastika tattoos on his white shaved scalp and the Confederate flag stitched to his evil white man's uniform. Or maybe all the good Latinos and black people will stick in your mind, saving the weak white people's asses (they even say at one point, "You can't have these white boys; these our white boys.") I paraphrase, but you get my drift. All I can say is thank God for black people, Latinos and women, cus the world clearly ain't safe in the hands of white men. Or Christians. Wow, white Christian men--just who the world needs to fear, isn't it?
