I’ll preface this review by saying I actually haven’t seen any of the other Purge movies. I thought, if there was any time for me to jump into the franchise, it would be at the prequel (other than the first one obviously).
Basically, I wanted to review this movie based off if it’s a “good prequel” based on the fact that I wouldn’t know any callbacks to the other movies.
So let’s just get into my thoughts on this movie.
After the rise of a third political party, the New Founding Fathers of America, an experiment is conducted, no laws for 12 hours on Staten Island. No one must stay during the experiment yet there is $5,000 for anyone who does.
