The Purge: Anarchy

Due to a series of events a group of people are unintentionally left on the streets right as the annual purge commences.

Whereas the first instalment was very much confined to a house, with the premises being interesting, it fell short turning into Panic Room by the end. With The Purge: Anarchy you get the sweeping feeling of scope across the whole city. Also you get an insight into the under belly of the Purge evocative of Hostel 2. Actor Frank Grillo is particularly notable and gives a great performance.

Reminiscent of Judgement Night and more recently Aftershock; being hunted down, chased through the city, it oozes tension. It’s well filmed and acted and not a straight to DVD follow up like Hostel 3.

While it may not answer all Purge questions, for example what happens if some dies after the Purge of injuries sustained during the Purge it gives a feel of what happens across America on Purge night.

What it boils down to is that if you enjoyed James DeMonaco’s first the second will surpass expectations.
