*The Purge*: Crime, Violence, and Ritual?

I just saw the preview for this movie today for the first time.

I'm excited about it because it has that same Lottery/Hunger Games-thing going on. Am I unrealistic in my hope that this film might be a statement on the criminal justice system and violence and perhaps even race?


  1. This is the first I've heard of it. It looks like an idea with a lot of potential, so they'll probably ruin it!

  2. Yeah, the setup looks great. I'm just worried that it's torture porn in an interesting context.
