Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine80 - The personalities that revel in the killings and torture and those trying to stay safe from the night of hell, are so on the money. This time they even added Purge tourists - privileged, snot nosed foreigners coming to the States to Purge our citizens, although it's not a practice in their own country. And you always feel so good when the most annoying of the purgers finally meet their demise.

Sober Film Critic James Brown75 - As Chris Tucker put it in Silver Linings Playbook, DeMonaco decides to black it up in this third Purge movie.
