The Writers’ View:
The movie seemed cool and its’ franchise seemed evolving to what the viewers want. The first Purge was not that amazing but, somehow, you would still want to see the flow of the ideas. So, after watching the first one, you can feel that the public demand is to make another one, but this time, make it better and bigger and a lot more wonderful. Then, when this edition came out on the national scale, they exactly give what is being expected from them. The movie is more on the political side which is pretty topical and the Purge contract has always carry the politics on its’ sleeve, and someone has to accept what is going into it. The Purge together the intriguing concept on it gathered altogether the thrill of horror films where the threats were actual people and not just ghosts.
