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.

Shameful use of the race card
28 October 2016 | by psy99999See all my reviews

The movie is an obvious political message with absolutely unreal characters and situations that would never exist in real life.

Innocent minorities that want to help civilians and their blonde female candidate (who is good) VS evil Nazis lead by the REpublican candidate. Pure trash for trash audience. Enough said.

Add to this the fact that the whole premise is stupid and makes no sense - why would anyone stay in the city? - and you get a really dumb cat. d film that should never have made it to theaters. The fact that it did and people actually pay to see it makes me truly sad.

Avoid at all costs, 1/10
