The Purge

In this film's far-fetched, near-future setting, all crime in society is allowed and instantly forgiven during a single 12-hour period once a year. In the midst of the annual anarchy, a wealthy family (led by Ethan Hawke) is held hostage inside their locked-down, gated community when they give shelter to an about-to-be-murdered homeless man. This bloody home invasion thriller actually tries to be some allegorical, The Strangers-meets-Panic Room critique of the tea party. Needless to say, it doesn't really click. 85 minutes R.
