The Purge is an annual night where all crime - including murder - is legal. After years of crime rates growing out of control, a no tolerance approach on law breakers was enforced on citizens. Anyone found to be breaking the law on a night that wasn't the allocated date
For each person who supports the night there are people who have fallen victim to the crimes it brings and wish it to be brought to an end. A set of the rich sociality with a dark and dangerous sadistic secret pay to see people murdered and happily watch on whilst the victims suffer horrendous violence. Innocent people are frequently killed on Purge nights - anyone seen as an easy target can find themselves in life threatening situations.
Senator Charlene Roan was one such victim, years earlier she lost her family on Purge night and now she's running for president to have the night banned. On what could potentially be the last purge night in history, the senator finds herself in danger; despite going to extreme caution and recruiting the most reliable people to protect her, she and security force find themselves targets.

Er, well, would you believe it's not that bad? Now that your expectations are appropriately middling, you might be able to appreciate Double Bang, a reasonably entertaining cop drama about an NYPD officer (William Baldwin) who gets all upset when he crooked partner (Adam Baldwin) ends up dead. Billy heads out on a vigilante mission, interrogating the usual suspects and dishing out his own brand of justice by turning the bad guys against their own.

At least one of the seven credited writers of the sequel-for-sequel's-sake holiday kiddie flick "The Santa Clause 2" clearly felt obliged to try to remedy the picture's contemptibly contrived premise by writing some really funny dialogue. And at least for-hire director Michael Lembeck (a sitcom vet making his screen debut) managed to infuse the movie with a fun, touching, sweet spirit.
But these acts are akin to Christmas miracles, coming as they do under the burden of a plot -- scratch that, a gimmick -- that revolves around finding even more fine print on the calling card of a dead St. Nick, which turned divorced suburban dad Scott Calvin (Tim Allen) into Santa Claus in the original family comedy from 1994.
It seems the elves waited eight years to inform their new Santa that he has until this Christmas to find a Mrs. Claus -- or else. "The de-Santafication process has already begun," frets head elf Bernard (David Krumholtz) as he shoos Scott off to find a wife. Meanwhile cherubic techie-elf Curtis (played by Spencer Breslin, one of those child actors who runs all his lines together without taking a breath or showing a hint of inflection) clones a big, rubbery toy Santa automaton (played by Allen in heavy prosthetic makeup) to stand in for Scott (unconvincingly) so the other elves won't learn of his predicament and panic at his absence.
