mum and dad
I feel bad and like I am letting you down; I feel I have't written a 'Mum and Dad' review recently where I scared mum... and I feel I failed again. Yesterday we watched The Purge: Election Year, and as much as we all enjoyed it, mother wasn't pulling her hair out compared to zombies. "Former Police Sergeant Barnes becomes head of security for Senator Charlie Roan, a Presidential candidate targeted for death on Purge night due to her vow to eliminate the Purge."
I like The Purge films, we all do in my household, and this is no let down. With me I like the cat and mouse style of the first one, but this one creates tension and fear as most people would probably relate to it more. And what I mean by that is that in this film, people are stuck outside, and with no metal window panels or a high tech security system, like most people probably. I always feel like the Purge is an American thing and not an English thing, as our houses are not built for those big high tech security systems, the Americans in these films seem to have. Us English would just have to fight or hide... Maybe I would dig myself a bunker and hide in there, who knows.
I like all of the Purge films, I must say though, I haven't seen them all, haven't seen the newest one, but I did actually really enjoy Election Year. I liked the story from the oldest one, but I did find the second one and this one scarier as they are more relate-able - apart from most people aren't politicians. Talking of politicians, let's hope one very known one doesn't take this up as a good idea...
Being out there is scary, and this film makes you think about how you would cope if this actually happened, and damn, people are vicious in this. Again, back to my hiding in a bunker idea...
One good thing about this film, is the characters, each character is thought out and each different, the goodies you like and the baddies you hate and annoy you - just the way it should be. Don't even get me started on the young girls who come and try and still from the shop - brats. Annoying teenagers who try and steal, try and get their own way and even try and pin sexual assault on Joe - not nice at all! They do make their cars up with semi Christmas lights though... and play Party In The USA, and that is a damn catchy song. But nothing else is good about them, and without spoiling, they get what's coming to them.
They are nasty and one group surprise you and it's really nice and I may have let out a little "Awwwwwww".
Overall, I liked The Purge: Election Year, I would say, for different reasons, it is on par with my love for the first one. It's relate-able and you feel for the characters, along with a few twists and turns along the way. Yeah, I liked it.
Not just there to raise you, also fun to watch scary films with...
