What would happen if all crimes committed during a 12 hour period went unpunished and without any legal consequences?  This is the conceit of The Purge franchise which began with The Purge(2013) and sees its 4th big screen iteration in The First Purge(2018).  This prequel story sets the stage for the events seen in the first 3 films, as well as the TV series that premiered on USA Network in September 2018.  The First Purge delivers on its promise of action and violence, even if the characters populating this world are not fleshed out fully enough for the audience to be very emotionally invested in their survival or demise.  The setting for The First Purge being Staten Island suggests the influence on the filmmakers of John Carpenter’s Escape From New York (Manhattan) as an exemplar of lawlessness in an urban setting.
