Review: The Purge: Anarchy Presents a Better Look at One Hellish Night

The Purge: Anarchy, a sequel to last year’s The Purge, takes audiences into the bloody Los Angeles streets during the night of “The Purge.” It’s a time when all crime is legal and you’re allowed to do anything you want. Got a weapon? You’re free to use it as long as it falls within the regulations.

The Purge films posit an intriguing, terrifying premise that could fully serve a successful series if Blumhouse Productions plays its cards right. It tested the waters first with a home invasion plot in The Purge. While I liked the film, I will admit there are some clunky moments and it works best in its set-up and finale. For The Purge: Anarchy, I feel like we’re getting an “open world” video game this time as it shakes off the shackles of The Purge’s claustrophobic nature and opens up the canvas.

Writer-director James DeMonaco gets it right this time with a plot that carries shades of ’70s and ’80s action-thriller fare like Assault on Precinct 13, Death Wish and The Running Man. Yeah, that’s a pretty cool equation right? I rather enjoyed it, even if DeMonaco fumbles some of the characters.
