The Purge: Anarchy (2014) Review:

Written and directed by James DeMonaco (director of the first opus), The Purge: Anarchy is a faithful and logical sequel to the first movie. I did not particularly enjoy the first The Purge which I found the predictable and lacking explanation, but this one is a good surprise for it is slightly superior to its little brother on pretty much every aspect.

First of all, the movie is extremely suspenseful. Like every good survival movie, you follow a group of people as they try to survive whatever horrible situations they are faced with. But somehow here, there is a little extra spice. Maybe it is the good camera work, or maybe it is the fast-paced story, punctuated by interesting plot twists, but the final result is very good and the overall experience very tense.

The concept of the purge is also more detailed than in the first movie…which is a good thing? Still, I’m convinced that it remains not elaborated enough. I mean, the concept is awesome and could be fleshed out to a brilliant sci-fi scenario, but they just kept it to a strict minimum.


Aside from that, the acting is great, as are the many action scenes. There are many villains and they all are quite twisted in their own way, making it a pleasure to discover what will happen to whom.

In conclusion, The Purge: Anarchy is a rather basic survival movie that concentrates on its strong point: huge suspense, cool “bad guys” and lots of pursuits…maybe once more at the expense of a better scenario?? Anyway, it is one of this year great release.
