The Purge is a dystopian horror film that explores the ruthless nature of humans given the freedom to do whatever they want during a 12-hour period once a year. Troubled teenager Jonathan Cruz obsesses over the idea of crime without consequence. He also identifies with the outsiders in the film who seek vengeance from those who wronged them, just as he felt the kids from his high school treat him unjustly. As he is encouraged to be more destructive by the other members of the gang he recently joined, he decides to embark on a Purge of his own. Unfortunately for Jonathan Cruz, his actions were not committed in the consequence-free world of The Purge. Show Less
