In the future, a wealthy family is held hostage for harboring the target of a murderous syndicate during the Purge, a 12-hour period in which any and all crime is legalized. view The Purge on imdb view The Purge on wikipedia
In an America wracked by crime and overcrowded prisons, the government has sanctioned an annual 12-hour period in which any and all criminal activity-including murder-becomes legal. The police can't be called. Hospitals suspend help. It's one night when the citizenry regulates itself without thought of punishment. On this night plagued by violence and an epidemic of crime, one family wrestles with the decision of who they will become when a stranger comes knocking. When an intruder breaks into James Sandin's (Ethan Hawke) gated community during the yearly lockdown, he begins a sequence of events that threatens to tear a family apart. Now, it is up to James, his wife, Mary (Lena Headey), and their kids to make it through the night without turning into the monsters from whom they hide. Written byUniversal Pictures

Humans have a natural instinct as predators to kill, but society forces
us to repress these feelings by living in a ''civilized''
way....according to new Ethan Hawke led film The Purge, a very
interesting concept of a film, which explores a future society in which
all crime is allowed for one night a year...
I am a film theatre employee, so I saw this film last night at an employee screening. Going into the film, I was rather excited. The concept is interesting, and has never been done before. While this film was not as scary as I had anticipated, I still thoroughly enjoyed it. The antagonists were disturbing, and the film really shows the struggle between self-preservation and what's right. It is somewhat short, but the makers certainly do get the job done. Plenty of flashlight-and-pistol standoffs and suspenseful scenes make for a film with an interesting plot, and good acting. The ending was a bit predictable, but did not ruin the film in my opinion. Not the best that I've seen, but overall a decent flick.
I saw this film with basically no expectations, yet I managed to be
quite disappointed. With competent actors such as Ethan Hawke and Lena
Heady, and a premise that (at least to me) sounded exciting, I don't
really know how they managed to ham it up this much.
