The Purge: Election Year (2016) – Who will protect her?

Third installment in the Purge franchise but does this movie hits the same level of amusement as the first two? Mwah.

First Purge movie was about how rich people look at the annual Purge. Second movie was shot from poor people perspective and this third installment from the political side. Many similarities with the present day where a female (role of Elizabeth Mitchell, best known from Lost) is running for president but not everybody is happy with this. She wants to end the annual purge but her opponent is a strong supporter of this purge. On the night of the purge there is an attack but with the help of bodyguard and purge survivor (Frank Grillo, also present in Purge: Anarchy) she needs to survive this purge night.

Offcourse there is a political message in this movie, very much present. Overall it is not a bad movie but not the best Purge movie. Without typing major spoilers, does the end of the movie also means the end of Purge movies? I don’t think so.
