* IdiotPlot: The first film wouldn't have happened if Charlie hadn't let the stranger in his house. Later, the Sandin's decision to not turn over the stranger escalates the scenario.

* MemeticMutation: The film's blanket answer to any of the logic holes in its premise: "The Purge just works." [[spoiler:Then comes the sequel, where it's revealed the Purge ''doesn't'' work.]]

* MarySuetopia: Of a dystopian kind. Taking the DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything entry on the main page into account, the new America seems to be a strawman version of what the filmmakers thought conservatives and libertarians would like to turn the country into.



** EVERY moment "Polite Stranger" appears, from his cheesy gleeful grinning every time he makes a threat to the Sandins to [[spoiler:him kissing James's forehead after stabbing him.]] (This "trying-way-too-hard-to-be-scary" attitude, depending on how seriously you're taking the movie, can either be [[TheScrappy annoying]] or [[EnsembleDarkhorse hilarious and endearing]].)

* CriticalDissonance: Somewhat subverted. While the film made money, at one point having the highest opening weekend for an original R-rated horror movie, [[note]] Until ''Film/TheConjuring'' came a few weeks later. [[/note]] both audiences and critics were left feeling like they were part of a BaitAndSwitch, with the mutual opinion that [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot an interesting premise was squandered on a mediocre home invasion movie.]] However, [[Film/ThePurgeAnarchy the next film]] is regarded as a SurprisinglyImprovedSequel.

** One of the neighbors making a last ditch effort to kill the family in the Purge's final seconds. It seriously makes you wonder just why they want to do it so much.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: The "Polite Stranger", played by Rhys Wakefield, is widely regarded to be the most enjoyable character to watch in the entire film, due to his [[LargeHam over-the-top and polite attitude]], the fact 95% of his dialogue is pure, unadulterated NarmCharm and his surprisingly large amount of screentime. As a result, many people feel disappointed when [[spoiler:the neighbours turn out to be the real final villains.]]

* SpiritualAdaptation: According to the Website/{{Cracked}} [[http://www.cracked.com/article_24343_6-famous-films-that-are-secret-remakes-kids-movies.html article]], ''The Purge'' is a blatant rip-off of the 1980s film ''Film/AdventuresInBabysitting''.
