    The new film pokes heavyhanded fun at extreme conservatives and has a "power to the people" sub-theme, but it's full of ultra-violence and is dragged down by standard scare tactics, thin characters and the absurdities of the premise. show more

    The film is at its best when it focuses on the more specific conflicts of five people thrown together on Purge night. show more

    Isn't a cheap knock-off but an equally effective, deliciously disturbing movie. It's bound to delight genre fans (and dismay critics, who attacked the first as heavy-handed and sloppy). show more

    I thought it was alright. I can't figure out if it was better than the first one. Anarchy has a lot more action in it (a lot more war like). If you liked the first one you will probably like this one.

    The Movie was good for a one time viewing. It had alot of the same stuff you would expect from the first movie. Different characters and a story that builds up to the same scenario as the original. Overall entertaining but nothing really new and exciting.
