When critics bemoan the dumbing down of movies, they're talking about stuff like The Purge. This is quite possibly the most moronic motion picture I have seen thus far in 2013 and that's saying a lot. The movie has obviously been constructed for those who watch the screen with one eye while texting or doing something else with the rest of their body. I guess it's a perfect drive-in feature where the most important elements are providing a little light (but not too much) and justifying a parked car.
