Jet Bin Fever - 2013-05-22 My guess is that it'll be somewhere between a Saw movie and a Wayans movie on the shit scale.
Nominal - 2013-05-22 Funny Games was intentionally made to unwatchable yet for some reason went on to be the most remade movie in history.
Caminante Nocturno - 2013-05-22 This movie would only be half-hour long if the people in the faux-anonymous masks were smart enough to set that stupid house on fire.
Binro the Heretic - 2013-05-22 How many more movies do we need about an average middle-class family becoming violent when faced with a kill-or-be-killed situation do we fucking need?
The plot is totally stolen from an episode of Classic "Star Trek" and both are built around the same bullshit premise, namely that people are violent at their core and have a "need" to purge their negative emotions by expressing them.
Just because we are all capable of violence when adequately provoked does not mean we have a built-in desire to do violence. Of course people will react violently to being violently attacked. It doesn't mean we each have a pool of violent desires that needs to be drained every so often. Violence will only beget more violence in retaliation, it won't be a soothing therapeutic event.
This is a high school creative writing class level of shit, here.
SHOCKING "TWIST" ENDING PREDICTIONS:
- The homeowners will kill the intruders and remove their masks to find beloved friends/family/neighbors/classmates/etc.
- It will turn out the intruders deliberately let the black dude escape so he would run to the house for help and they would have an excuse to slaughter this particular family for some dumb-ass reason
- IT WILL TURN OUT THE BLACK DUDE WAS WORKING WITH THE INTRUDERS THE WHOLE TIME!!!
- The "purge" will end and the surviving intruders will try to simply walk away only to be killed by the surviving family members who will then get arrested for murder
Caminante Nocturno - 2013-05-22 All of those twist endings, especially that last one, are way too high-brow for this movie.
Prickly Pete - 2013-05-22 Haha, that last one would be sweet. Maybe you should write Purge 2.
oswaldtheluckyrabbit - 2013-05-23 Again, some poor screenwriter has come up with a halfway interesting premise that has been watered down at every conceivable stage from green-light to release. The only way to save it at this point would have been to cast Nicholas Cage.
TeenerTot - 2013-05-22 It's like a far right wet dream: The rich people watch from their fortress as the ragtags kill each other.
dairyqueenlatifah - 2013-05-22 Now that YouTube shows unskippable ads before some videos, I ended up sitting through this trailer against my will.
I had to look it up just to make sure it wasn't some joke/meme I missed out on because I can't believe the retarded premise.
This is M. Night Shyamalan level bullshit without the money behind it.
baleen - 2013-05-22 HIGH CONCEPT BUNDLE OF HORSESHIT STARRING MY LEAST FAVORITE ACTOR EVER BORN??! I'M THERE!
Prickly Pete - 2013-05-22 I think the premise is fine. The weak part is that all the action looks to be taking place in the house. Who gives a fuck about what's going on in a house at a time like this?? I wanna see what's going down on the streets!
Spaceman Africa - 2013-05-22 I was thinking that too. Why the need for the dumb "home invasion" trope in this movie? I wanna see people rampaging across a major city.
