Plot: Former police Sergeant Barnes is charged with securing Presidential candidate Senator Charlie Roan who is seeking to stop the annual purge. An attempt on Charlie Roan on the night of the Purge sees her relive the horrors she suffered years before when she lost her family on a purge night. She experiences first hand again the horrors perpetrated during purge night as ordinary civilians are called upon to save their last hope of ending the purge.
Review: Being the third in the series, The Purge: Election year barely manages to avoid being irrelevant. The actions and horrors have gotten more creative and jaw dropping, but the cast appear to be nostalgic and drag us along in what should have been a horrific experience for us. For lack of words to describe, the performance is bland. For diehard fans of The Purge, this third installment falls beyond expectations as it deviates from the norm, the pure horror associated with this franchise, but if you are seeking to be merely entertained, then this is the movie for you.
