Movie Review – The First Purge

The First Purge was not what I was expecting. I’ll be honest and say that the last two really didn’t appeal to me. Luckily, they took a different approach on this one and it worked much better.

I don’t want to give anything away by explaining how they tied the movies together, but I will say they did a good job.

Now that I’ve given you the positives, let’s get into the negatives. First, some of the actors didn’t have enough screen presence to pull off the believability factor. They weren’t able to make me believe their story. I also never really got into the zone of caring about them.

My next big complaint is how rushed the story felt; this might be an editing issue. It felt like we were missing some scenes pertinent to the backstory.

This was neither a good movie or a bad movie. It was just ho-hum. I’d wait for the DVD.

Grade: C-

Peetimes
This is a short movie so I think you’ll be safe with just these two Peetimes.

I can also say that this movie would be fairly easy to catch up on if you run over the the allotted time. This is more of an action movie versus serious movie, with plot twists and turns.

While both Peetimes are good, I would recommend the first.

Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Android or iPhone ) whenever you go to the movies. We have Peetimes for all new wide release films every week, now including Tenet, The New Mutants, Palm Springs, and more. We have literally thousands of Peetimes from classic movies through today.
