The Purge: Election Year, released in 2016, is a horror/thriller film set in a future America where, for one night each year, all crime, including murder, is legal for a 12-hour period known as "The Purge." This franchise is the third installment in the Purge series. This movie follows former police sergeant Leo Barnes (Frank Grillo) who is now head of security for Senator Charlene Roan (Elizabeth Mitchell). Roan is running for president on the platform of ending the Purge forever, which makes her a target for the government officials who support the Purge. Barnes is tasked with protecting Roan from assassination attempts during the Purge.

Meanwhile, a group of rebels led by Dante Bishop (Edwin Hodge) are also out on the streets on Purge night, seeking vengeance for their own traumatic experiences with the Purge. This group crosses paths with Barnes and Roan, creating an alliance to fight back against the government's violent and oppressive tactics.

The film is set against a backdrop of political intrigue and manipulation as the ruling class tries to maintain their power through the use of the Purge, while Roan and her supporters fight for a more just and equitable society. The themes of government corruption, class warfare, and racial inequality are prevalent throughout the film.

One of the most intriguing aspects of the film is its depiction of the Purge as a tool of the government for social control. It highlights the way that the government uses the Purge to keep the lower classes in check, ensuring that they are too busy fighting amongst themselves to challenge those in power. This message is particularly relevant in today's political climate where divisions between races, classes, and political parties are at an all-time high.

Overall, The Purge: Election Year is a tense and gripping thriller that takes the viewer on a rollercoaster ride of action and suspense. With strong performances from its leads, a well-crafted script, and impressive special effects, it is a worthy addition to the Purge franchise.

In conclusion, The Purge: Election Year is a must-see for fans of the horror/thriller genre or anyone interested in exploring the sociopolitical issues raised by the Purge franchise. Its message is powerful and thought-provoking, and its entertainment value undeniable.

The Purge: Election Year is a 2016 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 43 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.0 and a MetaScore of 55.
