The Purge: Election Year: What You Need To Know

Following the success of The Purge and The Purge: Anarchy, we return again for The Purge: Election Year as it lands on DVD shelves (you can order it on the right-hand side of the page) and here is everything you need to know about it...


What’s the plot?

Senator Charlie Roan wants to end the Purge. Indeed, it’s the cornerstone of her platform to become president… and the polls indicate she might just win. Naturally, this doesn’t sit well with the ruling New Founding Fathers of America who use the annual killing spree to manipulate and control the population. As Purge night unfolds, will Roan be safe from the power-mad NFFA and their henchmen? Ah… no. So the quest for survival begins.

 

Who’s in it?

Some familiar faces - Frank Grillo (also see in The Purge: Anarchy), Lost's Elizabeth Mitchell and actor Mykelti Williamson. But the lack of marquee names actually helps to suspend disbelief in a way the presence of, say, Channing Tatum or Scarlett Johansson, would not.


Does it deliver?

Extraordinarily violent and gory and set mainly at night, The Purge: Election Year is not for the faint-hearted. But if you loved the previous movies, it’s a must-see.

 

 

The Purge: Election Year is out now on DVD and available here in hmv's online store.
