This movie was one of the best horror movie I have ever seen. It was made in a weird way, but it was so dark. So many unexpected things happened in this movie and it was awesome. I must say it was the best part of this movie. It was really well made. And the actors made it really good. I think this is one of the best movies ever. There were really scary scenes in this movie. I really like this movie.

The first of it's kind, a stand alone film that has everything. The T.V., the graphic novel, the music, the amazing cast, the superb story, the reason for it being a horror film, and a great amount of violence. It is the perfect horror film for fans of this genre, who are looking for a film that isn't just fun to watch, but also great horror. They can be watching something from the Saw franchise, and watching it with other friends. There is a good mix of story lines, characters, and action, all of which are pulled off in the most creative ways. The original did an amazing job of telling it's story, and still provides the audience with great scare tactics, without just going for the gore. It's true that the plot is a bit simplified, but the story does intertwine some things, which I think is important to take in. The First Purge is what it is, and it is what it is because it is a great movie. The only thing that makes it better is it's story, which is well told. It is what it is, but with great purpose. The audience will enjoy watching this movie, it will make them happy, and it will make you happy. This is what it is, and the story is great. I do believe that people will understand the story more and more as they watch it, and you will be asking yourself, what the hell did I just watch? To those of you who don't understand the story, but enjoy seeing gore, you'll enjoy watching it for the story and gore. The gore is great, because you can't take your eyes off the screen, and it is shown in a way that is easy to catch on. Overall, this film is the perfect horror film, it is a modern masterpiece, and it is as close to being as good as Saw.

Gosh! This is the best pure horror movie ever! It was so hard to get into this movie because it was so different and original. The script was amazing. The characters were interesting and strong. The visuals were really realistic and beautiful. The music was awesome. Even though this movie is not for everyone, I think it was an extremely good movie. It is not realistic and it was not a comedy or action movie. It is a great film that makes you think. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone! It is a great horror film and a great thriller.

How would you rate this film? 10. It is not worthy of being in this list because it is as bad as they come. You can have a really great horror movie or a really bad one but this one was as bad as it came and then some. Great sets and gore but not all that special. In fact, if this movie was on TV I would have pulled it out for a few minutes to see if I was wasting money and time. I believe it was on a channel called "Clue" where it was supposed to be scary, but it wasn't. Only the actors looked real. Those actors need to stick to writing. One of the reasons this movie was so bad was because it was so well made, and not "acted" like most of the horror movies we have today. I would not be surprised if this is what made it so popular in the beginning. People would jump to the conclusion that it was the acting and that the director, Peter Wyngarde, was in on it and that makes me glad it isn't a true horror movie. But if it is a horror movie I won't be scared for a minute. I am a real fan of horror movies, but this one was nothing I haven't seen before. I think this is a sign of a slow start for the genre. I would suggest watching it for people who are new to the horror genre. This is a lot more low budget than the old "pulp fiction" movies. The first movie had a lot of trouble with the censorship issues and I know that most of the movie was shot in LA and was very expensive to make. However, it was done well. This is about as low budget as you can get. If you think this was a horror movie, you might be missing the whole point. The director should be ashamed of this movie because it was a horrible mistake.

I was very impressed with this movie. I don't know if this is just my opinion but it definitely had a different style than the other similar movies. There were some very good fight scenes in the movie. They were very violent. The main characters had great acting skills. There was very intense fighting. I thought the movie was very enjoyable. I would recommend this movie for any action fan. This movie has a lot of interesting ideas. The main characters are very interesting characters. I give this movie a 9 out of 10 stars. I would recommend this movie to anyone.

I actually watched the whole movie. But really, this is my favorite movie, I watched it on one of my friends hard disk (we used to have some super hard disk when we were teenagers). I like this movie because it's full of the kind of story that I like to read. For me this movie is almost like reading The Matrix or Indiana Jones or even Moby Dick or even Superman. Because when I read my books it is not only about the action but also the actual story and I could see why the characters had feelings about what happened. This movie also is full of action, some of the scenes are just like watching a screen when I was in second grade. This movie is definitely worth watching and if you are like me and you like to read. you should definitely watch this movie.

I liked the first one a lot, but this one has nothing to do with the first one. So I can understand that people who have seen the first one have a certain bias toward the movie. But when people are ready to give this a completely different rating, I guess they are ready to see a different movie. All I can say is that you can't really go wrong with this movie, and I definitely loved it.

This is one of the most original and entertaining movies I've seen in a long time. It's definitely a must see. The film is definitely not for everyone, and if you don't like it, you're probably not going to like the film. The plot is very unique and unique in itself, it's very hard to understand how the plot works. I won't spoil it for you, but I will say that if you don't like it, then you probably don't like the movie. The acting was really good. I thought the main characters were very good, but I also think the supporting cast was really good. I thought the plot was great, and it was very well done. It's definitely a movie you should watch. It's not the best movie I've ever seen, but it's definitely a movie you should watch. I give it an 8 out of 10.

It's the old familiar story of the last man standing after a nuclear attack. This one is different, and that's what makes it more enjoyable. It's quite violent but at the same time much more dramatic than most horror movies. Most of the stars from the original were in it, and it's definitely the film with the most fun to it. It's full of action, well-dressed people, some romance, a bit of drama, and a little bit of horror. It's got a great cast, and they get to play some very memorable characters (or at least they did for me). It's good, well-paced, and totally worth seeing. You'll like it. But I say it's better than the original. I know they changed the whole setting of the story but I think this one makes it feel more like a modern horror movie.

This movie is not for everyone. My friends and I saw this movie last night, and I must say it has to be one of the scariest movies I've ever seen in a theater. The plot is relatively thin, and I felt the writers tried to add too many subplots. This movie is good because it has a great story and the acting is very good. The cast of this movie was superb and they gave us a really good performance. I was really touched by the acting in this movie. This movie really scared me. I was very surprised when I found out the plot of this movie. The plot was pretty good. There are several questions to be answered. For instance, is it possible that the group is one of the seven plagues? I was also curious about the events that happened after the movie was over. I thought this movie was good because it had a great story, great acting, and good horror effects. Overall, this movie is a great movie and I recommend it to anyone who likes horror movies.

My wife is a bit of a purger and enjoyed this movie with me. It is a fun movie with nice characters and interesting plot. I loved the science that is taught in this movie as well. It is based on a comic that is certainly not realistic but still very interesting. While the movie may not be for everyone, I would recommend it to anyone who likes sci-fi horror. I hope it will be nominated for an academy award for Best Science Fiction Film or just make it to the small screen. And yes, it is a good movie for a party. Just don't expect it to be scary. 10/10

I agree with the reviews that people that gave this movie a bad review are people with no sense of taste. There is no wrong or right way to watch a movie. This movie is actually one of the most entertaining films I have ever watched. And it is even more fun to see a bunch of people all having a good time with it. This movie is a serious action film, nothing else, and it is so worth it. It is a great way to kill an hour and a half, and is definitely one of the better action movies that I have ever seen. If you are looking for a good action film, watch it, then watch it again. Or better yet watch it again and again. This movie will not make you sick or feel nauseous from all of the gore. This movie is basically like a party where you have a great time and it's awesome. When you are done watching this movie, that is when you are done watching it. It doesn't matter what you are doing or who you are with, you are still going to have a good time. When you watch this movie, you are really just having fun and you are going to have a good time. The movie will not force you to do anything or lose your mind. I highly recommend this movie. This is a must watch, because it is a great film and it is worth it. Enjoy!

There are many reasons why this movie will stick to fans forever. First of all it's superbly written with a cast that actually fits into the film, and it follows in the footsteps of other ultra-violent flicks, the movie takes it's time to develop it's characters, and the cast does an outstanding job. Sure they are a little bit corny at times but it doesn't take away from the plot. The story is great. In short: Very Bloody and Great Plot. You'll laugh, you'll get chills, and you will probably even cry. The movie is filled with incredible violence. Every person is in danger of the next big problem. The police officers who take part in the violence are almost as bad as the criminals who commit crimes in this movie. The fx were great, and the effects were awesome. Although not as blood-filled as some of the most recent movies of this genre, it's still a very good film, and even if you didn't like this movie, you'll still enjoy the humor of the movie, and the classic soundtrack. It's a great movie, and a must see.

I have to admit that I wasn't expecting much from this film. I had heard that it was a remake of a similar film, and I thought it might be a typical slasher flick. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The story was pretty good, and I liked the characters. I think that the film could have been better, but the characters were really interesting and the story was pretty good. The only problem I had with the film was the ending. It was a bit confusing and I wasn't sure if the film was over or not. Overall, I would recommend this film to anyone who likes horror films.

I would say that the first Purge was a very enjoyable film for the genre fans and for those who enjoy a good thrill. But as most will agree this film is so much more than just a mindless thriller. There is a lot more in it than just revenge. There is a lot of themes discussed throughout this film and the ending is definitely something that you will not want to miss. So give this film a chance. It is worth it. And you will not regret it!
