The annual purge is back, in The Purge: Anarchy. This time, the world the viewer gets to see is far larger, the action has been stepped up a notch, and we begin to see exactly what the general public thinks of the annual carnage, where law is suspended for 12 hours.
The tenion of the first film, and the claustrophobia have been dialed down a bit, while the action and violence have been stepped up. People are apposed to the purge, while others have found a lucrative way to make money off the poor and defenceless.
The Purge: Anarchy is a stark look at a plausable future, and ponders the nature of humans, whether we’ll help each other, or allow our primal instincts to take over, and forget any sort of morals.
The Purge: Anarchy is a thrilling ride, and opens 22 August 2014 in South Africa.
