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.

User Reviews

 
Like most "exploitation movies," the "Purge" franchise is deeply moralistic at heart.
26 May 2019 | by pacharavtnSee all my reviews

The saving grace of Election Year has to be the optimism that was lacking from previous films. There's finally some light at the end of this tunnel.
