The First Purge

As I wrote recently for The Purge: Election Year, I do like this series, and was quite looking forward to watching this film. I liked it fine, but I’ll say that for me it’s the weakest of all the films (I think my favorite is Election Year). The big surprise here was to see Marisa Tomei in it — doesn’t feel like the kind of thing she’d do (although her part is relatively small — maybe she’s just a fan of the series). It’s still worth watching if you like the series, and it’s fun to see how it all started (it ends up being as crooked as you’d expect). I’m really curious to see how they’ll continue things, considering how Election Year ends.
