Like the original, this film depicts and American with a low crime rate, except for one 12 hour period each year where you are allowed to purge. This time around, you get a sense of the larger political landscape, and how the purge is truly effecting society at large. Also, the main character get stuck outside this time, and have to fight to make it til dawn. If you have had a hard day at work, and hate everyone in your life, this might be the right movie for your mood. P.S. Omar’s in it!
