Seems ambitious but bites off more than it can chew. The whole class warfare struggle set against the backdrop of the annual Purge (where all crime is legal for 24 hours) wants to be edgy and topical but the characters are paper thin and the plot too predictable despite a few chilling moments. Overall, simply adequate, nothing more.

A marked improvement over the first 'Purge'. This time we take to the city streets in a non-stop action thriller set on the next night of 'Purging'. The political agenda is much more clear from the very beginning and it's carried through to a better climax. Though, the message does become just a one note repetition. There are enough new situations and ideas to offset that. I actually liked the main characters this time around, thanks to better characters and an entertaining cast. A few too many conveniences and predictable outcomes brings it down a bit. Still better than the first.

I saw the first one and liked it, mostly because of the originality and novelty. The sequel had no redeeming qualities. It was only about 90 minutes long but it dragged for me.

Purge 2 ok at best

As a fan of the first purge movie i was pretty disappointed in this one. it was average stuff. and didn't go in the direction i expected or have the same feel to it as the first movie.
if you dont know the story Once a year people are allowed to kill rob do what they like for one night only as a way to stop crime for the rest of the year. the first movie was about the people inside this time the movie is about those outside with a whole country either hiding or out on the streets killing you'd think it would make for a good story. but they seemed to choose a very simple idea as a script than really get into telling a more complex story . the mian problem is the dialogue and the actors. none of which were very good. it just felt cheap and after the first movie it should not have been. th...

One Trick Pony

The Purge: Anarchy is a one trick pony that uses the same trick as a bunch of other one trick ponies. This sequel takes the premise of last years hit (which was really just a jumping off place for a run-of-the-mill home invasion thriller,) and makes it a whole lot dumber and a lot less thrilling.

Its Message is basically Elysium (I know Iíve said that a hundred times before, but itís true,) but instead of simply refusing to give the poor healthcare, in The Purge: Anarchy they literally kidnap and assassinate the poor for the fun of it, and the government helps them along. Itís just like The Hunger Games, but with more balls and less brain. I wouldnít mind if Hollywood made these preachy 1% messaged movies if they gave them half a brain, but theyíre, for the most part, stupid.
