A bit stale n devoid of tension.

I first saw this in 2016 on a dvd which I own. Revisited it recently with my family.

This is the third installment in the Purge franchise.

A young Charlene Roan is forced to watch as her mother, father, and brother are killed on a Purge night. Fast forward eighteen years n Roan, a U. S. Senator is campaigning for the U. S. Presidency and promises an executive action to end the annual Purge nights.

This one gets a bit stale but i am generous with a 7 cos of Grillo.

In this one there are no psychopaths or creepy stuff.

It also has lots of clichés moments.

It was easy to predict that apart from Grillo's character, all other security personnel will be traitors.

Also the tunnel stuff are all too far fetched n predictable.

Last Chapter (We Hope}

In Washington, Senator Charlie Roan (Elizabeth Mitchell) is disputing the Presidential election running against the New Founding Fathers' candidate Minister Edwidge Owens (Kyle Secor). She claims that the NFFA uses The Purge with economical purpose to get rid of poor and sick people and is the favorite to win. The BFFA leaders plot a scheme revoking the protection of government officials to kill Roan. Her chief of security Leo Barnes (Frank Grillo) uses his agents and snipers to protect Roan, but there is a breach in the security system created by two agents that betray Barnes and a paramilitary group breaks in the house killing the loyal agents and snipers. However Barnes and Roan succeeds in escaping but Barnes is shot on the shoulder. They are captured by a group of Russian tourists and rescued by two locals that are protecting a store. They call their friends and they decide to protect the Senator until the next day. Will they succeed in protecting Roan?

"The Purge – Election Year" seems to be the last chapter of this franchise; but the riot in the very end of this movie may be the beginning of another sequel. The idea of the dystopian society is too much imbecile and unrealistic. Therefore there are only funny and violent situations to entertain the viewers. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "12 Horas Para Sobreviver - O Ano da Eleição" ("12 Hours to Survive- The Election Year")

expanding the Purge universe

Senator Charlie Roan (Elizabeth Mitchell) is running for President on a platform of ending the Purge. Her family was massacred during the Purge in her childhood. The NFFA revokes the Purge rule protecting high rank government officials but Roan refuses to add security. Leo Barnes (Frank Grillo) from the previous movie is now her head of security. Store owner Joe Dixon (Mykelti Williamson) is informed that his Purge insurance has been canceled. Roan is betrayed and escapes with Barnes into the streets where they are hunted.

This tries to add politics to what started out as a simple horror franchise. It's making social commentary. The world of the Purge continuous to be expanded. There are fun Purge visuals. There are some fun action although I wouldn't call it a scary horror. It goes down some weirder paths which is interesting. One thing holding it back is that there is only one possible good ending and the movie would ignore it to its detriment. Roan has to die.
