 ✔     Introduction

Hello Friends, I hope you are doing fine and are having a good time on bitlanders. Today I have come up again with my new blog with the title of "Hollywood Movie Review - The First Purge". Friends, this blog is about a recently released Hollywood Fiction and Horror Genres film "The First Purge".  The story of the movie revolves around an event lasting for 12 hours in which all the crimes are given the status of being legal.  The criminals who like to go on a rampage find it a nice opportunity to show their ravage.  However, the min idea was to curb the ratio of crimes in the area and the purpose of conducting this test was to check the consequences.  Nevertheless, things get an ugly turn when the situation seems to be getting out of control; but in the minds of new rulers, this test becomes a success and they want to conduct the same in other states as well.  The movie was directed by Gerard McMurray and produced by Jason Blum and Michael Bay for Blumhouse Productions.  The screen plot for the movie was written by James DeMonaco.

James DeMonaco’s Purge series is premised around an annual 12-hour period in which crime – including murder – is legal. This prequel to the hugely successful dystopian horror series explains the why and how of the social experiment. Devised by Dr May Updale (Marisa Tomei), who declares her interest as “psychological” rather than “political”, the controlled experiment is quickly co-opted by ruling rightwing political party New Founding Fathers’ chief of staff Arlo Sabian (Patch Darragh) into a chilling evening of sanctioned ethnic cleansing.

✔       Movie Plot And Review




The movie begins in a new America where there is no Republic or Democratic Government and America is under the rules of New Founding Fathers of America (NFFA).  This is mid of 21st Century and there is a time of economic and social turmoil in the United States.  There is a strange looking drug addict Skeletor who is expressing his desire to bring out his anger and frustration called "the Purge" on the people he does not like to another person on camera and he is advised that he would be given this opportunity soon.  In order to reduce the rate of crime, the NFFA officials Arlo Sabian and Dr. May have planned to conduct an experiment in Staten Island in which people will be allowed to get rid of their inner hatred and evil feelings for others and they can do so by committing any crime for which they shall not be penalized.  The people are offered a handsome amount if they opted to stay indoors during the 12 hours dangerous period.  The ones on rampage during 12 hours will be laced with the tracking devices and cameras in order to record their activities.

At this time, the sound of siren marks the end of "the Purge" time and the people now can come out safely.  Dmitri is declared as a hero and he iterates his ambition to fight back along with other people.  The NFFA declares the event as successful and issues a statement that there may be more "Purge" events in the other states as well.

The movie "The First Purge" is a real scary and thriller movie.  No one would like to have such a ruler who would allow criminals to go on a killing spree in the streets for 12 hours.  However, this was made possible in the movie and this central idea clicked on the big screen.  This movie "The First Purge" is the 4th movie in the series of "The Purge" movies and all of the previous movies made a good impact on the screen. This movie as well, was welcomed and liked by the movie lovers across the world.  The producing team includes James DeMonaco who is a famous American screenwriter as well as producer and his idea has clicked and there are more movies in the same series to come in future.  The movie's budget was a meager amount just over 10 Million US Dollars but the movie has made more than 110 Million US Dollars which shows the level of interest shown by the Hollywood movie lovers for this movie.
