Review The Purge: Anarchy :
A slightly better sequel, but still a failure in taking advantage of the premise
I hated The Purge because it took an interesting premise and it resorted on making a cliché home invasion movie that in itself was all just stupid people doing stupid things. This sequel actually has the premise of Purge night throughout the city with multiple characters which sounds much better. Now this sequel definitely shows a lot of promise, but it falls apart like the original thanks to clichés and dumb characters.
Good: Frank Grillo is the one good part of the movie. He takes charge and is great as an action hero. I would have watched the movie if it all about him.
Bad: The movie once again doesn't do much with the premise. It expands to a wider setting of the city, but it just focuses on dumb horror clichés doing dumb things. You have characters out and about on Purge day mere hours before it starts when they should have been inside a barricaded home since the morning. Add to that that aside from Grillo, everyone is either just boring or annoying so there's not much in terms of people to root for. The message of poor vs rich here is very heavy handed and the movie violence isn't that effective and mostly relying on poor CGI.
Overall, while it is a tad better than the original, it still suffers from lackluster violence, dumb characters, and a predictable plot.
