About the Movie
It has been two years since Leo Barnes (FRANK GRILLO) stopped himself from a regrettable act of revenge on Purge Night --- the 12 hours of lawlessness. This year, the annual ritual comes at the eve of a heated presidential election with the nation deeply divided between those who are pro--- and anti---Purge. As head of security for Senator Charlie Roan (ELIZABETH MITCHELL), Leo's mission is to protect her during her controversial and contested run for president. But when a betrayal forces them onto the streets of Washington, D.C. on the one night when no help is available, they must stay alive or both be sacrificed for their sins against the state.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: "The Purge: Election Year" takes itself just seriously enough to provide the expected measure of fun - a blend of aggression, release and relief.
Fresh: What once seemed like design weaknesses in DeMonaco's speculative fiction - the willful incoherence of his allegory and the scattershot quality of his satire - now feel like a natural extension of his schlock-and-awe sensibility.
Rotten: The Purge: Election Year represents writer/director James DeMonaco's attempt to squeeze one more movie out of a premise that has run dry.
Rotten: The violence is too tantalizing, too stylized, too fetishistic - the film features killers dressed in fanciful Halloween costumes who dance and sing as they dismember people.
