The Purge Review. It Could Have Been So Much More

The Purge review
By: MattInRC
Spoiler Alert!
The Purge has all the best intentions, but its execution is terribly flawed.


The era of ultra-violence is upon us: stories about baddies dying terrific deaths, or heroes leaping from cars to defy the rules of gravity, are celebrated and marketed by Hollywood as part of The Summer Movie Season. A society bent on enjoying such entertainment over more meaningful (and potentially just as thrilling) stories seems to be all Hollywood can produce now, such as the well-intentioned but poorly-executed thriller The Purge. It's the kind of film that could have been so much more but achieves far less.


It's the year 2022, and crime/general suffering is at an astonishing 1% No, we haven't founded The United Federation of Planets, or come up with a new food and money supply to bring the world happiness. What society has achieved is far more morbid: during one 12-hour period each year, Americans are allowed to engage in The Purge, a ritualistic evening of murder and crime that's not only allowed but encouraged. Hate your boss? Kill him without repercussion. Discovered a jealous wife? Whack her without consequence. It's in this environment that we find the Sandins: the father James (Ethan Hawke, Gattaca), wife Mary (Lena Heady, Dredd), and kids Charlie (Max Burkholder) and Zoey (Adelaine Kane). After The Purge begins, the sympathetic Charlie rolls up dad's security doors to give shelter to an injured homeless man. In doing so, he unknowingly attracts a group of people bent on killing him and the Sandins. As the lynch mob digs in for a home invasion, James and Mary must decide if the stranger is worth sacrificing their lives to protect him.


Directed and written by newcomer James DeMonaco, The Purge sports a terrific premise, that of a mass one-night killing spree to keep social order throughout the year. The trouble is that DeMonaco's genius ends there, confined to a few chilling scenes of citizens oddly supporting the event, while engaging in a terrible act of film-making sin. While he leads the audience down this troubled road with effective scenes of ultra-violence and talk-show rationalizations, DeMonaco loses any capital he builds when makes Charlie the worst scapegoat possible. Already too long in the tooth over the debate, The Purge sinks under its own weight, brought down by the actions of one stupid kid. As a result, we don't feel Charlie's humanity, but instead curse him throughout the film for his actions that remind us of a one-man wrecking crew. By the time we're done, the boy has ruined his parent's home, killed his father, and forced Mary to pick up the pieces. There's a ridiculous and unnecessary relationship angle between Zoey and a would-be boyfriend, along with an ending that we're not invested in by the time it materializes. Heady and Hawke have good chemistry, but the leader of the lynch mob (Rhys Wakefield) is only superficially bad, adding more weight to a story that feels a lot longer than 85 minutes. Yes, The Purge is only 85 minutes, which means it took me as long to drive to this film as to watch it.


The problem with The Purge is not that we don't believe such atrocities could happen; but in its effort to convince us, the story gets lost in too much set up and not enough pay off. The actions by Charlie don't endear us to him, representing a foolish and costly mistake by DeMonaco. By the time America's new bloodsport sport is concluded, we've come up with far better scenarios than the one just witnessed. It's too bad that its execution is so horribly flawed, because its base premise is so appealing. As I emerged from the theater to a din of disdain, I was at least comforted that I wasn't alone in my opinion. When you can create a better premise in your head while watching Hollywood's supposed best effort, you know you've just witnessed a dud. The Purge is rated R for violence and has a runtime of 85 minutes.

First Image Of Theo James As "Four" From Divergent

Attention all you Four fans: here’s an exclusive reveal of Theo James as Tobias “Four” Eaton, the mysterious–and rather dreamy–Dauntless leader that takes a special interest in Beatrice Prior (Shailene Woodley).

For those of you who haven’t read the Veronica Roth books, Divergent takes place in a dystopian future where all of society is divided into five factions: Amity (peaceful), Abnegation (selfless); Candor (honest, Erudite (intelligent); a nd Dauntless (brave). Our heroine, sixteen-year-old Tris, chooses the Dauntless faction.

EW caught up with Theo James while he was on a break from shooting Divergent in Chicago where the production will continue until mid-July. ”Is this the picture where I have a t-shirt on and no pants? I was really hoping they’d use that one,” James jokes, before explaining that this picture (note: he is wearing pants) captures a moment from early in the film when Four is showing the Dauntless initiates around their new headquarters. “I’ve introduced them to this world and they’re still in the beginning stages of training,” he says. “At this stage you don’t really know what Four is all about.”

James got a taste for leadership when much of the cast participated in a kind of boot camp before filming. James was even given the opportunity to take charge of the Dauntless training, leading the 50 or so actors that make up the core group of background Dauntless characters. “They didn’t know he was playing Four, they thought he was our stunt coordinator,” says director Neil Burger, with a laugh. “He put them through it.”

Says James, “I know it sounds ridiculous but it was really quite useful: it helped set a tone for those scenes, being able to live the character a bit. At one point, Shailene was laughing and I got real serious with her and said”—the actor lowers his voice to a menacing whisper—”Don’t. Laugh.” He laughs. “Shai was like, ‘um, are you joking right now?’”

Kristen Stewart Is Going To Be A Busy Girl

Kristen Stewart has committed to star in back to back projects shooting this summer. She will star in Camp X-Ray, a politically charged drama written and directed by Peter Sattler, and she will also star in the Olivier Assayas-directed Sils Maria.

In Camp X-Ray, Stewart will play a young soldier who escapes her suffocating small town by joining the military, only to find that she isn’t going for a tour of duty in Iraq as she hoped. Instead, she’s sent to Guantanamo. Met with hatred and abuse from the Muslim men in her charge, she forges an odd friendship with a young man who has been imprisoned at Gitmo for eight years. The film’s being produced by Gina Kwon and Sophia Lin, and exec produced by David Gordon Green, Lindsay Williams and Ellen Goldsmith-Vein. Production begins late summer.

Stewart will join Juliette Binoche and Chloe Moretz in Sils Maria, the CG Cinema-produced English language film that Assayas wrote for his Summer Hours star Binoche. The film explores middle age and that introspective period where one questions how they’ve spent their life so far and what they’ve accomplished. The title refers to the Swiss setting, and Stewart plays the assistant to Binoche’s character, an actress who becomes obsessed with a young actress (Moretz) playing the role that made the older actress famous when she was young. The film shoots this summer in Europe. IFC acquired this film for distribution just before Cannes.

Starting where other romantic comedies finish, I GIVE IT A YEAR stars Rose Byrne (Bridesmaids), Rafe Spall (One Day), Anna Faris (The Dictator) and Simon Baker (“The Mentalist”). The film also features Stephen Merchant (“Extras”), Minnie Driver (Good Will Hunting) Jason Flemyng (X-Men: First Class) and Olivia Colman (“Peep Show”).

Their wedding is a dream come true, but no one — family, friends and even the minister who marries them — is convinced that they will last. Josh’s ex-girlfriend, Chloe (Anna Faris), and Nat’s handsome American client Guy (Simon Baker) could offer attractive alternatives.

I Give It A Year is written and directed by Dan Mazer (Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, Bruno), and is produced by Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner (Love Actually, Atonement), along with Kris Thykier (Stardust).

Hasbro Comic-Con 2013 Exclusives


Limited-edition toys run the gamut from 'My Little Pony' to Marvel heroes to a mash-up of '80s favorites 'G.I. Joe' and 'Transformers.'

Hasbro will have special exclusive toys available at Comic-Con in July

Sets include toys from 'Jem' and 'My Little Pony' lines plus a 'G.I. Joe'/'Transformers' mash-up.

Limited number of exclusives are slated to be sold after the con online.

Lines are inevitably part of every San Diego Comic-Con attendee's convention experience, and not many lines are as impressive as the one at the Hasbro booth.

Crowds flock to see what's coming out from such pop-culture toy lines as G.I. Joe, Transformers, Marvel Comics, My Little Pony and Star Wars, but also to get their hands on the exclusive merchandise only available at Comic-Con.

The crop on sale July 18-21 is, like every year, custom-tailored for its core contingent, according to Derryl DePriest, Hasbro's vice president for boys global brand marketing.

"We've seen how Comic-Con has grown over the years," he says, "and Hasbro has been an essential part of that growth with just the presence we have there and a devoted fan base that every year has made the exclusives we produce the center of their experience.

"We know we have to produce something that's big enough to meet their passion."


Hasbro's 2013 exclusives run the gamut from partner brands like Marvel Universe and Star Wars — Comic-Con is the place to get a special "Black Series" Boba Fett action figure ($49.99), complete with Han Solo in carbonite — to properties the company owns, including G.I. Joe, Transformers, My Little Pony and Jem and the Holograms.

Here are four highlights that fans will be able to get at Comic-Con this summer, and afterward in limited supply at HasbroToyShop.com:


With the popular Friendship Is Magic animated series on Hub Network, comic book and toy line, My Little Pony has become a phenomenon of a franchise, growing a loyal following of female fans and male Bronies.


A fan favorite who first appeared in the first season of Friendship is Magic, DJ Pon-3 ($49.99) makes her debut with a Comic-Con exclusive — and a shiny one at that. In addition to a musical note as her "cutie mark," her sunglasses and unicorn horn are embellished with Swarovski crystal elements that tie into the year's theme of the Crystal Empire.

Even DJ Pon-3's special packaging lights up, says Hasbro's Donna Tobin, senior vice president, global brand marketing for My Little Pony. "Everything about her offering really enhances her character."

In the cartoon, "she had a little throwback to the '80s — she put a needle on an actual vinyl record," Tobin adds. "A younger girl might not have picked that up but our older fans picked it up immediately and loved it. And we love that about her, too."

Hasbro hosts a panel at Comic-Con featuring voice talent from the show, previews a fall line of toys at its booth and offers a poll where fans can elect their favorite pony from the "mane six" — Twilight Sparkle, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Rainbow Dash and Applejack — and record testimonials at a video booth before the vote goes live at Hubworld.com/vote4ponies on July 22.

The friendship and tolerance themes of My Little Pony fall right in line with the camaraderie and spirit of the Comic-Con faithful, Tobin says. "We appeal to fans of all ages, and what better opportunity to bring this particular character that fans are already embracing to them in a very special way."


The "truly outrageous" rocker returns to Comic-Con with the "Glitter N' Gold" Jem doll.


Jem and the Holograms

Jem, the pink-haired '80s cartoon rocker, made a "truly outrageous" return to pop culture last summer at Comic-Con with a high-end collectible figure from Hasbro and Integrity Toys.

She sold out quickly, so Jem's coming back glammed out with a special "Glitter N' Gold" figure ($140) that's a nod to a version from her original era. This time, though, she comes with more detail, a better and more realistic sculpt, and accessories including an extra dress and a record trophy.

The only thing not carried over from the '80s? A cassette tape, which probably to anybody younger than teen years would cause head scratching.

There was so much feedback and excitement for Jem on the convention last year that Hasbro felt "Glitter N' Gold" was right up their alley, says Samantha Lomow, senior vice president, global brand marketing.

"We really listened to the fans about what they would be looking for. This was inspired by some of those on the floor conversations."

Old Jem cartoons are still shown on Hub Network, but Hasbro does have future plans for Jem and her alter ego Jerrica Benton. "Stay tuned for now," Lomow teases.

Even though she is pushing 30 years old, Jem continues to resonate today, mainly because of the duality in character between the over-the-top Jem and conservative Jerrica.

"She is the embodiment of that personality today in pop culture," Lomow says. "Jem was ahead of her time in a lot of ways. It really did celebrate girl empowerment and girl power in a very fashionable way. There is this desire of parents today to share Jem with their kids because it is still relevant."


The Thunderbolts squad of Judith Chambers. Ghost, Crossbones, Luke Cage and Moonstone star in the Marvel Legends set.


Marvel Legends

Between its superhero movies, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show and its comic-book empire, Marvel may have the biggest Comic-Con ever in 2013.

Action figures come hand in hand with comics, though. Whereas Hasbro hits kid demos with Iron Man, Spider-Man, Thor and Wolverine movie toys this year, the company is using its Marvel Legends Comic-Con set to embrace the adult fans and put the spotlight on some characters who haven't seen that much love — in this case, the Thunderbolts.

Hasbro aims to "create a minor event out of it at Comic-Con to remind our most ardent collectors that we can do some of the coolest stuff that's very relevant to them," says Adam Biehl, vice president, global brand strategy and marketing.

"We surprise the fan base with something they didn't expect, and that's always the goal with any exclusives we do."

The Hasbro team was excited by the idea of doing a Thunderbolts set ($89.99) of 6-inch figures inspired by the comic-book art of Kev Walker and based on the Marvel team of superpowered antiheroes — Avengers member Luke Cage and the reformed super-criminals Crossbones, Ghost, Moonstone and Judith Chambers — that work for the government.

Cage receives a more modern Legends figure than he's seen in the past, but senior design director Dwight Stall was most excited about giving first editions to other characters whom "the Marvel fans have never had a figure of and might possibly have never thought, oh yeah, Hasbro will get around to doing those," he says, adding that other Legends figures releasing later this year and in 2014 will be on display at the Marvel booth.

One of the more interesting Thunderbolts to design was Ghost, a character who is very, very different in his anatomy from what you'd see on other, more traditional superheroes.

"He's not big, he's not muscular, he doesn't have that overwhelming presence to him," says Stall, adding that they re-used a Bucky sculpt from a few years back that they never thought they'd utilize again. "We turned him into my favorite figure in the set."

And if bigger is better, then Crossbones' massive cannon wins the day.

"Realism has its place but there's that level of super-realism in the superhero world where you could have a guy who could literally rip a mini-gun off the side of a helicopter and use it as a hand weapon," Stall says. "That's one of the benefits of having super strength."


The 'G.I. Joe'/'Transformers' mash-up set includes a G.I. Joe V.A.M.P. vehicle in the colors and deco of the Autobot cult favorite, Hound.


G.I. Joe/Transformers

Iconic cartoon/toy/comic franchises over the last 30 years, G.I. Joe and Transformers are two franchises that have recently hit Hollywood but are always favorites at Comic-Con among those who grew up with them and younger folks getting to know the real American heroes and transforming alien robots.

Putting them together, though? That's like the ultimate peanut butter and jelly sandwich for children of the '80s.


This year's G.I. Joe/Transformers exclusive ($99.99) is the third and final installment in a special series of annual mash-ups, and while the two previous exclusives focused on Decepticons — a Skystriker jet with a Starscream paint job, and a Shockwave deco on a G.I. Joe Retaliation movie H.I.S.S. Tank — the 2013 edition focuses on the good guys.


"What better way to go out with a bang than with the Autobots coming to save the day?" says design manager John Warden.


Paying homage to a G.I. Joe/Transformers comic-book miniseries in the '80s, the set includes a Skystriker in the colors of the Autobot Jetfire and a G.I. Joe V.A.M.P. vehicle retooled to reflect Hound, a cult favorite whose original automobile form was that of an Army Jeep.


"We look to these two brands in particular to make a big statement," DePriest says.


The comic medium has been the experimental forum to prove a very high concept: that these universes of characters can go together. But we've just never put them together in toy form."

To pair with the vehicles, the set stars the Cobra femme fatale Baroness with the Decepticon character Ravage, G.I. Joe ninja Snake Eyes with an Autobot logo on his outfit, the Autobot Blaster in his boom-box form and his tapes, and a robotic samurai warrior with a skeleton head in the colors of the Decepticon Bludgeon.

"John's wanted to do a samurai for years," DePriest quips.

"He appeals not only to the original '80s fans but also late '80s and '90s," Warden says. "That's another big piece of Comic-Con: It's appealing to all generations."

Benicio Del Toro Joins Guardians Of The Galaxy

Just when you thought the cast of Guardians Of The Galaxy couldn’t push the boundaries of the word “eclectic” any further, here comes news that Benicio Del Toro has hopped aboard in a leading capacity, albeit one that Marvel and director James Gunn are keeping under wraps for now.

According to Deadline, Del Toro has signed a Samuel L. Jackson-style multi-film contact, the sort that most of Marvel’s main actors have been locked into but one that, like Jackson, will let him pop up across various films without having to carry the main acting load. Is he a hero? A villain? Place your bets now and make your suggestions in the comments or on Twitter.

Del Toro joins a huge cast of varied performers that includes Chris Pratt, Glenn Close, Karen Gillan, Zoe Saldana (whose signing appears to be all but complete), Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, John C. Reilly, Ophelia Lovibond and Dave Bautista.

Guardians sends human pilot Peter Quill into space, where he becomes known as Star-Lord and teams up with a rag-tag bunch of escaped prisoners guarding a dangerous secret. At least, that’s the basic premise; no doubt Gunn and co has cooked up something around it.
