    The Purge of thrillers. Amazing concept. Very poor execution.

    ★★★ Watched 21 Jun, 2015

    Coming out of Volume I, I expected a lot and was let down. Not to say I didn't enjoy Volume II.

    Forgive me father for I have sinned. I have watched all 2 hours and 45 minutes of this movie. However, I believe it is penance enough that I watched all 2 hours and 45 minutes of this movie.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This film was very full of itself when it comes to it's genre. However, I did not expect the "slut" character to be the last one alive. Well played. You get half a star extra.

    I just accidentally watched this entire movie when I only meant to watch a clip. Can't say I'm upset about it.

    I feel the same way about this film that I did the new Godzilla movie. Godzilla was one of the best Godzilla movies. This film was one of the best Jurassic Park movies.
