Watch The First Purge For Free
The First Purge
To push the crime rate below one percent for the rest of the year, the New Founding Fathers of America test a sociological theory that vents aggression for one night in one isolated community. But when the violence of oppressors meets the rage of the others, the contagion will explode from the trial-city borders and spread across the nation.

I really don't get the hype.
An unexpected masterpiece
Each character in this movie — down to the smallest one — is an individual rather than a type, prone to spontaneous changes of mood and sometimes amusing outbursts of pettiness or ill humor.
If you're interested in the topic at hand, you should just watch it and judge yourself because the reviews have gone very biased by people that didn't even watch it and just hate (or love) the creator. I liked it, it was well written, narrated, and directed and it was about a topic that interests me.
This i my first Purge movie. (No pun intended). So, I can't rightly say whether this is just a pale retread of films two and three like others say. All I know is, I stepped into this knowing it wasn't going to be War and Peace, and I was entertained.I really liked the visual style. There is a wide display of creatively creepy costumes. The camera work is pretty nice too. Glad to see a film taking place at night, where you can still see what is happening.The movie is busily paced with a lot of characters and happenings. Kept things varied and interesting. As forced as the plot may be, you do get to feel for the characters.Still, the dialogue could've been better at points. There are some very forced Trump references. The subplot with the government official and psychiatrist overlooking the Purge is by far the weakest, most poorly written part. The only saving grace in these scenes is Marisa Tomei, who manages to do a good performance despite rubbish dialogue.Yeah, I know the whole concept is goofy, but if you like horror action, I think this is a serviceable time waster.
Should definitely be 1 star out of 10 but I believe it or not have seen worse.Bad from the start. Much regreted not leaving and going in to see Mission Impossible.1. Horrible Acting 2. Some things made no sense 3. A very racist movie! All whites were either killers or bad guys and rarely in the movie at all. The last Purge movie was decent, which is why I decided to last minute try this, but I have no idea how this could have made it to the theater.The best and only scary/suspenseful part was the trailer for "The Nun"
In the world today, where we have a lot of hate racial tension and just total chaos. Why in the world with somebody make a movie of this genre? Grant you when I first heard about this movie I thought oh cool movie! But this is nothing more than a racist based hate movie which has signs of the Ku Klux Klan other factors against minorities. Now I myself do not endorse movies like this nor do I even watch him. But this movie was so bad worse than a B rated Movie, I decide to sit through it. But if I have to do it again I would not of wasted my time. But luckily I didn't pay to see this movie so I am consider myself lucky. With the world the way it is and all the hate in racial tension why would anybody make a movie like this? It makes me sad with despair why people would even think about Making of this. It's not only depressing but racially hatred completely directed towards minorities. Why why why would anybody create such a piece of him reading garbage. Now if you enjoyed the movie wonderful. But those who are sensitive to issues like this and those who hate out right racially driven garbage. It's totally depressing.
The first purge was set up as a social experiment on Staten Island. The idea was to pit "violence against violence". People were paid to participate in the experiment and we later discover (plot spoiler...sort of) gangs were shipped into the area. The initial purge was to no real surprise, designed to eliminate the lower classes. The film centers on Isaiah (Joivan Wade) who has issues with a crazed killer (Rotimi Paul). Dmitri (Y'lan Noel) is attempting to keep his gang together by boycotting the event. We already knew the politics behind the purge, so the revelation wasn't a breath taking climax. The characters were mostly lame except for Skeletor. Somehow I don't feel bad when poor people kill each other, nor am I entertained by it. I like it when the white bread crowd must defend themselves. Guide; F-word. Brief sex. no nudity
