  • 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

  • Ultimately, “Anarchy” is too cartoonish in its politics to gain the allegorical resonance it clearly strives for — and worse yet, it's just no fun. show more

  • The Purge: Anarchy efficiently exploits its high-concept premise while delivering far more visceral thrills than its predecessor. show more
