Review: The First Purge 2018

Having bypassed the previous three “Purge” movies — in which, once a year, Americans are free to murder, rape and pillage with impunity — I came to their prequel, “The First Purge,” with virgin eyes and zero expectations. But even the most ardent fan could find its bluntness uncomfortably timely: In our build-that-wall moment, a story about a government-sponsored plan to cull poor minorities feels less like political satire than current-affairs commentary.

As does the vision of societal collapse and carnage propagated by the New Founding Fathers of America party, which prompts a well-meaning psychologist (Marisa Tomei) to design an “experiment” that allows citizens 12 hours of punishment-free venting. Staten Island is chosen as the location, and residents are offered cash to remain and participate. Creepy contact lenses will record their misdeeds, whose depravity will ensure the experiment’s continuation.

But what if you held a massacre and hardly anyone came? That’s the rather heartening question posed by James DeMonaco’s script, which — aside from one battle-scarred freak named Skeletor (Rotimi Paul) — presents residents who’d initially rather party than rampage. So much so that imported mercenaries are required to show them how it’s done.

The First Purge Storyline

After the rise of a third political party, the New Founding Fathers of America, an experiment is conducted, no laws for 12 hours on Staten Island. No one must stay during the experiment yet there is $5,000 for anyone who does.
