The characters have finally figured out what I said about the first movie — the only reason the “New Founding Fathers” came up with this Purge idea was to get rid of what they considered the riff-raff. All right, to be fair, all the characters in the first movie were rich enough not to care so much about that, and apparently they were also self-centered enough not to think much about that sort of thing, except for the annoying little boy.
So, yeah. Saw the movie, liked it okay… but I’m now having trouble writing about it, and that’s usually a bad sign. I’m not an Alex Cross fan, not having read any of the books, which might be part of the problem, but since I’ve heard that actual Alex Cross fans weren’t thrilled with the casting here, maybe that isn’t a problem. Having never seen Tyler Perry before, I had no comparisons to make, unflattering or otherwise.
