Storyline

This horror/action-adventure film from director Gerard McMurray serves as a prequel that recounts events that led up to the first Purge event. To push the crime rate below one percent for the rest of the year, the New Founding Fathers of America (NFFA) test a sociological theory that vents aggression for one night in one isolated community.

Goofs

In one scene an uninjured Dolores looks out of Nya's intact apartment window. In the next scene the window is shattered and Dolores' arm appears to have been grazed by a bullet. This jump is explained by the deleted scene included in the Blu-ray release: Skeletor was hiding in Nya's apartment (hence the "fresh" blood Dolores notices on the floor), inside the closet. When he jumps out and tries to kill Nya, there's a confrontation between him and Isaiah, which leads to Skeletor flying through the window. See more »

It's not a terrible film, but also not a great film. Go in expecting the same as the last two films (not the first film, that was a completely different type of movie)
