The Forever Purge (2021)



Critic Consensus: The Forever Purge fails to fully engage with its most frighteningly timely themes, but the franchise remains largely -- albeit bluntly -- effective.

Movie Info

Adela (Ana de la Reguera, Cowboys & Aliens) and her husband Juan (Tenoch Huerta, Days of Grace) live in Texas, where Juan is working as a ranch hand for the wealthy Tucker family. Juan impresses the Tucker patriarch, Caleb (Will Patton, Halloween), but that fuels the jealous anger of Caleb's son, Dylan (Josh Lucas, Ford v Ferrari). On the morning after The Purge, a masked gang of killers attacks the Tucker family--including Dylan's wife (Cassidy Freeman, HBO's The Righteous Gemstones), and his sister (Leven Rambin, The Hunger Games), forcing both families to band together and fight back as the country spirals into chaos and the United States begins to disintegrate around them.

Wry and satirical...a blunt tool that works rather well.

August 4, 2021 | Full Review…

It's a timely argument against self-regulation instead of safeguards, and an admonishment of a government that views human collateral damage as an inevitability.

A visceral rip-roarer, it plays out like Max Mad crossed with The Walking Dead - but amid the spurting jugulars and the gunsmoke, director Everardo Valerio Gout chucks in barrel-loads of idealism.

July 15, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The fifth Purge outing goes for broke and comes out wanting, working neither as political commentary nor horror-action-thriller. In this case, bigger is definitely not better.

"The Purge" movies still want you to believe they stand for something, but they're just cheap window dressing on conventional genre tales, this one a race to the border. Anyone else feeling Purged out?

July 2, 2021 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

The Forever Purge is adept at providing the violence and gore fans expect from an exploitation flick. And, despite its pretense of offering political commentary, that's really all this movie is.
