3/5 Stars

WHAT IT'S ABOUT:

The United States of America is plunged into a state of chaos and confusion when a group of marauders decide that the purge does not stop. An immigrant family struggles to survive and escape.

WHAT THE CRITICS THOUGHT:

It's a timely argument against self-regulation instead of safeguards, and an admonishment of a government that views human collateral damage as an inevitability. - Simran Hans, Observer (UK)

A visceral rip-roarer, it plays out like Max Mad crossed with The Walking Dead - but amid the spurting jugulars and the gunsmoke, director Everardo Valerio Gout chucks in barrel-loads of idealism. - Ed Power, Daily Telegraph (UK)

"The Purge" movies still want you to believe they stand for something, but they're just cheap window dressing on conventional genre tales, this one a race to the border. Anyone else feeling Purged out? - Adam Graham, Detroit News

The Forever Purge is adept at providing the violence and gore fans expect from an exploitation flick. And, despite its pretense of offering political commentary, that's really all this movie is. - James Berardinelli, ReelViews
