As someone, who, didn’t care much for any of the previous”Purge” movies, I actually had a good time watching this third installment. Here, writer director James DeMonaco finally gives us a reason to care for all the characters involved in the annual purge, where, for 12 hours, the government allows robbery, rape and even murder. But before that, we meet Senator Charlene Roan (Elizabeth Mitchell), the front runner in the next presidential election, who vows to put an end to the purge once and for all. Desperate to keep this tradition alive, the New Founding Fathers of America agree that they must do whatever it takes to get rid of Senator Roan…on Purge night. Let the games begin. Unlike the previous movies, director DeMonaco has actually found a way to push your fear buttons with guns, masks and pulse pounding action scenes. Does it last until the finale? No. But until then, “Election Year” means business, the nastiest kind. I say give it a chance.
