Very mediocre (at best) comedy, with flaky security guard Kevin Hart trying to impress surly would-be father-in-law (and veteran cop) Ice Cube. All the cliches you’d expect to be in there are there. Unexceptional and bland stuff from Tim Story.
The Purge: Election Year
James DeMonaco extends his dystopian vision of modern America with a somewhat more hopeful addition to the franchise; definitely not as good as the original, but not without interest. Frank Grillo makes a decent enough hardboiled everyman protagonist, now a security dude for anti-Purge politician Elizabeth Mitchell, though the most interesting strands involve ground level, neighbourhood types like bodega owner Mykelti Williamson and ambulance jockey Betty Gabriel.
