  • 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.
