The First Purge

There is a race war in this country and Trump along with movies like “The First Purge” are not helping. Blacks are fed societal lies that whites hate them and don’t want them to succeed. Whites are fed that blacks hate whites. Welcome to the backbone premise of this film. It relies upon these evil, age-old constructs. I didn’t like this movie.

The First Purge (2018)
R | 1h 37min | Action, Horror, Sci-Fi | 4 July 2018 (USA)

The film will be a prequel that will focus on the events that lead up to the very first Purge event.
Director: Gerard McMurray
Writer: James DeMonaco
Stars: Y’lan Noel, Lex Scott Davis, Joivan Wade

The chemistry worked the same as the other films for me. The director was respectful to the tone and overall message against the upper class population. Look, I’m not a professional reviewer so I can speak my mind: this film really bothered me. I saw Detroit last year and loved it because it pointed out the injustice that was done in a real event. Katheryn Bigelow made a social statement about racism in that film. This is similar to Black Panther in the way it vilifies white upper class. Scrolling through Twitter I see that more blacks like it than whites, that makes me very sad for Hollywood and for our country. I can’t recommend this film to you. It reeks of hate and reverse discrimination. Having said that, it you think differently, my comments box knows no color, please let the community know. I found this review extremely difficult to write but felt I needed to put something out. 5/10.
