file it with The First Purge as generally being better than the first handful of films (and thank fucking god for that) but that's really about it.
there's so much potential to be found in this series and it just feels like constant missed opportunities for something more. i feel like its heart is in the right place even if it truly steps in it a bitsy from time to time but we're five entries into the series and either a pleasant surprise quality/content wise or other kind of shaking up would be appreciated.
if it can't do that i wouldn't mind it doubling down on some brain wormy action sequences. a bit like the stairwell fight from the previous entry was sorely missing here in terms of standout set pieces.
maybe i'll give the tv series a try.
