Seriously people - he's a kid - people are giving him a hard time for not making the smartest decisions? Really? How old is he again in the film?

Too old to make the ridiculously idiotic decisions that he does. And I got the impression that he's more an adolescent than a kid.

But even so, who wants to watch a movie with characters who make hair-pullingly dumb decisions? Who enjoys being frustrated? That was my main emotion throughout the entire film, unfortunately.

Do people always make the smartest decisions in real life? Then why do some people expect the movies to always depict people making only the smartest of decisions? Why can't people make poor decisions in films? Isn't that more realistic considering that people often make stupid choices, especially when in deadly situations where you don't always have the time to think straight?

Did the kid make some poor decisions? Yes. That doesn't mean it's a bad film. It means it's a film about some people who have a young son that made some poor decisions during the events of the film. I read the news every day and I read about people making poor decisions all the time that cost lives.

Really the Dad should have been the only one to know the code to the house since after all he was the one who installed it and plus its not like it mattered
[Show spoiler]when one truck with chains attached to the bumper removed every piece of security that house had


But yeah its a movie and it was needed to get the plot from point A to B.

Seeing the kids storm off one by one or run off when the shit was going down leading the Dad or Mom to stop and ask Where is <Insert kids name> got pretty stale.

Its a nice idea for a movie but the kid with his annoying constant check of his heart rate monitor to him making a decision to open the doors its like for someone who is worried about his heart rate he sure is creating a lot of stress and drama. Unless of course he gets high off of adrenaline.

I think I probably liked 90 percent of this movie.

Sequel is coming.
Is there going to be a sequel every year, like Saw, especially since this story centers around an event that happens "one day every year"?

Probably will. Lately movies like this have gone on to make numerous sequels just look at Paranormal Activity, as long as they make bank at the box office it is guaranteed.

If he hadn't made those hair-pullingly dumb decisions, there would've been no movie. I just caught this on Cinemax and really enjoyed it. I also found the premise truly disturbing.

There could have been, but it just would've been a better one.

In all seriousness, I'm envious of those who were able to enjoy this movie. I blind-bought it at the request of my friend (who loved it), and I got burned pretty badly. Loved the premise, love the two lead actors, hated the nonsensical decision-making by the characters.

That being said, I'm definitely down to give a sequel a try!

This would be a cool concept if they keep the quality up. The first film was insanely profitable so if they can replicate this with the sequel it might set things up for a series. I like the idea that they turned the tables around for the sequel - with people getting stuck outside on the streets during the purge. Terrifying idea.

Will all the sequels be released each year on or around the date of the purge in the movie?
