ODEON says...
In an attempt to control the crime rate in America, an unorthodox experiment is proposed: to make all crime, including murder, legal for 12 hours. It’s called ‘The First Purge’. 

Oppressed neighbourhoods are under siege from a government that desperately wants the plan to work, to the point that they’re sending in soldiers disguised as citizens to inspire acts of violence. It started in a few trial cities, but soon the Purge will explode across the nation.

Witness the beginning of the annual tradition in ‘The First Purge’, a prequel to the massively successful horror franchise.

More explosions

The social experiment idea was an interesting concept, but this was murdered, literally. Overall, fighting, shooting, explosions and superficial stock characters that in the end you did not care about.
