If Senator Charlene Roan can survive until dawn, this could be America’s last night of purging. After watching that first film, I really did not expect to still be interested in the series three years later. Somehow the sequel, Anarchy, turned out superior in every way to the very flawed original, and even better, made more money at the box office. So now Election Year is almost here and can hopefully tie a nice bloody bow and conclude the trilogy on a high note.
“It’s been two years since Leo Barnes stopped himself from a regrettable act of revenge on Purge Night. Now serving as head of security for Senator Charlie Roan, his mission is to protect her in a run for president and survive the annual ritual that targets the poor and innocent. But when a betrayal forces them onto the streets of D.C. on the one night when no help is available, they must stay alive until dawn…or both be sacrificed for their sins against the state.”
James DeMonaco is once again writing and directing, while starring in The Purge: Election Year are Elizabeth Mitchell and Frank Grillo (back from 2014’s The Purge: Anarchy). The Purge: Election Year hits theaters on July 1st.
