The “First Purge” raised 9.3 million at the box office, which happens to be the lowest of the saga.

The nation where all crime, including murder, is legal for 12 continuous hours comes back for what seems to be the last film in the series directed by Gerard McMurray. “The First Purge” is the fourth movie that gives a reason as to why the morbid holiday began.

The saga revolves around the idea of crime legalization for all Americans to release their anger and hatred. The set is based in Staten Island, New York where crime walks the streets on a daily basis. Poverty, drugs, and the need/want for money are the primary reasons for the bloodthirsty citizens. The American government believes they have come up with a solution to these problems, which you have probably guessed, is the gory 12 hours that take place.

The film follows the experience of Nya (Lex Scott Das), her younger brother Isaiah (Joivan Wade) and Dmitri (Y’lan Noel) along with second protagonists Dolores (Mugga).

Isaiah, wanting a better future for him and his older sister decides to participate in the experiment, which offers 5,000 dollars to stay on the island. If they participate in purging, the more money they will receive. Isaiah faces the terror of the night after trying to pursue the act of purging. Crime starts to grow at an alarming rate as the night goes on.

The first face of terror we are faced with is Skeletor (Rotimi Paul). His frantic, psychotic personality gives way for fear to creep into the homes of those who are trying to hide.

The film portrays the government in a way that makes us terrified in our seats while just watching it. Dmitri, an assumed drug dealer, decides to take matter into his own hands and protect the families of Staten Island.

This film offers suspense and thrill throughout the theatre. The plot isn’t far from fiction, which is why it offers thrill and suspense.
