Movie Review: The Purge: Anarchy (2014)

Frank Grillo of ‘Prison Break’ stars in this dire sequel to the okay original. It is 2023 and united we purge. Why are people still outside 2 hours before the purge? A politician called Donald Talbot pontificates. The 1st film showed the purge from the POV of the upper-middle class, this shows it from the POV of the blue collar, mostly.

So much for social values with this new commonly shared ideology of an orgy of heathen perversity. A bickering couple bore. The rich do sinister activities. There is whining and this has the foetor of failure. People will meet their doom in a flurry of bad acting.

Rich sickos lurk and commit random acts of violence. Grillo is more or less playing the Punisher. There is even more bad acting and this was floridly ridiculous. All the characters (do we even learn their names?) are moaning energy sappers. This was cynical and people have implacable enmity towards decency.

Kiele Sanchez of ‘Lost’ is really annoying. There is a purging auction and an appearance by the Resistance. A character from the 1st film returns. Grillo plays a jackass and one doesn’t care about him or the fact that it is revealed that the purge is a giant con.

Best Lines:
“If you’re not purging, we advise you to get off the streets as quickly as possible.”

“I can hear you!”

“You sure? Make sure.”

“Need some protection tonight?”

“Hitting them in the face ain’t going to work no more.”

“Don’t piss me off bitch.”

“Run! Run! Faster!”
