I am not sure if this is a valid subject to be in the debate section, so I will keep it for the time being.
I am not sure if any of you saw the movie or heard of it. If you did see it, what did you think about it? Would you be for a government, that would allow people to murder: the homeless and people unable to protect themselves or someone that upset you that year?
The whole backstory of this "Purge" is because of a whole market meltdown and other factors.
If something like this did happen in the US, would you stay and hope for the best or move to another country?
One thing after the movie, these are a few things that came to mind; would tourists be able to participate or would the US government ban non-Americans into the country for that day? If you were a tourists are you exempt from being murdered like anyone else? If you are an American and are away, do you need to come back to the US and participate?

Was ok. Better than I thought it would be but not a movie I would add to my must see again list. The premise definitely drew me in, I heard about it on the radio and wanted to see it (I don't watch much TV.)
I heard mixed reviews but for the most part I'm willing to play ball as I too put waaaaaaayyyy too much thought into this as well. I dont think I have an ability to speak on the matter as I have yet to see the film, but from the previews I think this will take place in a house so explination of societys inferstructure will be vague in the begining and explained as necessary but I doubt any societal revelations will be added with masked vigalnte dialougue.
I think tourists should be allowed. They should be aware that we have that program in place. 'Murica. Now we have to question whether or not they can participate.
The hotel industry must have some form of protection much like the home depicted in the trailer so it can be deduced that its lockdown at paid hotels. For instance, not everyone would be able to afford that level of security, given the damand for it and all, so you'd have to shak up somewhere to be safe.
I can see the Purge popping up in a Family Guy Episode where they show a bunch of people puking.

The premise that people can be turned on and off like this is the huge suspension-of-belief that you have to swallow to continue on with the movie. Half a second of thought would show that if all crime were legal for even a week the other 51 weeks would still be just as crime ridden (if not more) than they would be without the purge.
It would certainly inspire one to plan ahead for the event, wouldn't it?
America is becoming a nation of have and have not's. Most of us on this forum (excluding those who are armed to the teeth) will probably be a target and killed for our house, cars, or jobs if this is allowed to take place.
Anyone watch The Purge Anarchy. I enjoyed it. It has a different feeling than the first one which was more trippy. This one had a better feel since it was in the city instead of the one house. More action, less annoying teenagers lol. The theater I was in was pretty packed, much more so than when I saw the first in theaters. I think a lot of people are intrigued by the premise. Seems to be #1 movie this weekend so far. The Purge cost $3M but made $90M worldwide lol. The Purge Anarchy cost $9M and its already made $13M. Sergeant (Frank Grillo) had a great performance in this film.
Blessed be our new Founding Fathers and America, a nation reborn.
