Action/Thriller: Various people do what they must to survive a nationwide killing spree that's continued well past its officially mandated twelve-hour window.

Adela (ANA DE LA REGUERA) and Juan (TENOCH HUERTA) are a married couple who illegally immigrated from Mexico to the U.S. to escape retribution from drug cartels. While she works at a meatpacking plant for Darius Bryant (SAMMI ROTIBI), Juan works at a Texas ranch owned by Caleb Tucker (WILL PATTON). While that man has no issues with Mexicans such as Juan and fellow ranch hand T.T. (ALEJANDRO EDDA) working for him, his adult son, Dylan (JOSH LUCAS), does, especially after Juan non-violently breaks a wild horse that Dylan couldn't.

But that's put on the back burner for a night as they all prepare for the return of the once-annual Purge where all violent crime -- including murder -- is allowed across the nation by order of the New Founding Fathers of America. As Adela and Juan take refuge with other Mexicans and the Tucker family -- including Dylan's very pregnant wife, Cassie (CASSIDY FREEMAN), and sister, Harper (LEVEN RAMBIN) -- hunkers down, racist ranch hand Kirk (WILL BRITTAIN) prepares to get busy during The Purge.

And after it's over, as participants decide to break the rules and continue with their lawlessness and killing. All of which puts everyone at risk and then on the run, eventually needing help from Native American tribal leader Chiago Harjo (ZAHN McCLARNON). With the killing spreading and continuing unabated, those not participating do what they must to survive.

If they're into the other "Purge" movies they probably will.
For strong/bloody violence, and language throughout.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
