THE PURGE: ANARCHY Movie Review

I survived so I could review The Purge: Anarchy for you. The follow-up to 2013’s The Purge is not what I would consider a sequel. It is more of a stand-alone film. I give The Purge: Anarchy 3.5 out of 5 stars. It is not a must-watch in theaters, but worth checking out if you are fan of the genre.

the purge-anarchy-movie-review2Written and directed by James DeMonacoThe Purge: Anarchy stars Frank Grillo, Michael K. Williams, Carmen Ejogo, Zach Gilford, Kiele Sanchez, and Keith Stanfield.

Frank Grillo is a bad ass in this, but then again he is in every film he stars. Grill could basically use this as his audition reel for a reboot of The Punisher. If you are a fan of Michael K. Williams, don’t go see this for him. He has very little screen time. Listen to my full audio review above.

Synopsis:

The New Founders of America invite you to celebrate your annual right to Purge. THE PURGE: ANARCHY, the sequel to summer 2013¹s sleeper hit that opened to No. 1 at the box-office, sees the return of writer/director/producer James DeMonaco to craft the next terrifying chapter of dutiful citizens preparing for their country¹s yearly 12 hours of anarchy. Returning alongside DeMonaco to produce the sequel to 2013¹s sleeper hit are Blumhouse Productions¹ Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity and Insidious series), alongside Sébastien K. Lemercier (Assault on Precinct 13, Four Lovers) and Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay (Pain & Gain, Transformers franchise), Brad Fuller (The Amityville Horror, A Nightmare on Elm Street) and Andrew Form (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th).
