The Purge is a movie that makes you think because it mirrors reality. Like for example, “Why do the rich and government always want to kill off the poor?”
It’s always the poor that are killed. Another example, when it comes to pandemics, the poor are the last to get masks while the rich are the first. Not to mention insider trading and patents needed in place before the rich release any vaccines, so as to make a killing in the stocks. The poor always die first.
Why is the government trying to kill the poor?
The rich are doing real evil things.
That being said, The Purge was so successful that it inspired a television series too.
