REVIEW – THE CINEMATOLOGIST: ‘The Purge: Election Year’
The Cinematologist is back and this week he’s reviewing the horror sequel The Purge: Election Year, released earlier this week. The film was met with mixed reviews by critics, but what did The Cinematologist prescribe?
As a young girl, Sen. Charlie Roan survived the annual night of lawlessness that took the lives of her family members. As a presidential candidate, Roan is determined to end the yearly tradition of blood lust once and for all. When her opponents hatch a deadly scheme, the senator finds herself trapped on the streets of Washington, D.C., just as the latest Purge gets underway. Now, it’s up to Leo Barnes (Frank Grillo), her head of security, to keep her alive during the next 12 hours of mayhem.
Started in 2009, The Cinematologist features Jake Miller, a filmmaker trying to make it big. He loves film and everything about it, and likes to chime in his two cents when it comes to all the movie buzz going around town and the air waves.
