The Purge meets Mad Max... I think I've had enough.
I'd had enough once I'd seen the second entry. I've seen all the films for my sins and while the first was interesting, I never enjoyed the rest. I stayed away from the series and I'm gonna stay away from this.
I saw the third movie (I think) because my friend wanted to see it. That was enough for me. I didn't want to die during it or anything, but I thought it was pretty stupid and not particularly entertaining. Certainly not memorable, literally the only thing I remember was a very irritating girl yelling about candy. I've always thought the premise was pretty dumb, so I'm not really interested in seeing any more of these.
The only modern series I like less than Paranormal Activity is The Purge. I didn't enjoy a single entry from either series.
Same here. After that I didn't bother. I couldn't care less about this franchise. I'm always surprised when I hear a new one announced.
Right? Who is shelling out money for these (producers and audiences)?
I agree with the posts here. I know I saw Purge 1 and 2. Maybe 3. I can barely remember it. Never checked out the TV series or movies after Part 3. I think from Purge 1, the formula is have a little conversation about the society in the opening and then just have people running for their lives. It's stupid but guess what? It's a Blumhouse movie series that makes tons of money compared to the budget. According to wiki:
Purge 1 = Budget $3 Million / Box Office $89 Million
Purge 2 = Budget $9 to 11 Million / Box Office $111 Million
Purge 3 = Budget $10 Million / Box Office $118 Million
Purge 4 = Budget $13 Million / Box Office $137 Million
Even if you double or more the budget for marketing. This series is a consistent money maker. And that's not with DVD / Blu-ray sales and whatever TV / cable deals. Sad because I'll never watch any of the movies again.
I joked once to a neighbor that I was upset with that I saw a movie where you could kill you neighbors for one night if you wanted. I think they thought I was crazy but that got them to be nice.
