Remember the 2013 film movie, The Purge? Now its back again. Named as The Purge: Anarchy, the mayhem were set in the distance future of 2023.

Hours before the annual Purge begins, people across the country are preparing either to commit crime or to lock themselves indoors against the upcoming violence. What will you do if you were to leave in such a country, where it was set up by the Government. Would you Purge? Or would you stay indoors to protect yourself and your family? Can you survive for that 12 hours, and praying that no low-life scumbags banging on your door?

Unlike the 1st movie which takes place in the residential estate, the 2nd movie takes place in the city of Los Angeles. The story involves a police sergeant, a mother and her daughter, and a young couple. This time there’s also this anti-Purge resistance group that hacks into television programs to broadcast their own messages. To them, what’s done needs to be done and they dare challenge the system. This part kinda reminds me of that movie V for Vendetta. 

Knowing the consequences, the police sergeant had prepare an arsenal of weapons at his disposal. With that, he appeared heavily armed and quite skilful in combat.

The couple, while driving along the highway before the Purge commence, their car suddenly broke down. They were shocked to discover that their fuel line were cut. More shocking when a gang shows up, forcing them to flee on foot.

The mother rushes home to the daughter to prepare for that unforgiving night. As they did that, her father who was terminally ill had slip out of the apartment and into a waiting limo. He had leave behind a note explaining that he sold himself to a wealthy family as a Purge offering in exchange for $100,000 which will be transferred to her daughter’s and granddaughter’s bank accounts.

While the couple and both mother and daughter struggle to survive, the police sergeant bravely goes out into the streets for one purpose: Revenge. Subsequently all of them met and had to work together to survive the terrifying night.

Now here’s my opinion. After watching it, I find that the Anarchy doesn’t seem to bring much suspense and heart-pounding feeling like the 1st movie. It looks more like a battlefield with huge trucks and an army of look-alike SWAT team causing mayhem. Perhaps since it takes place in the city area, where it was much more open. Every corner you will hear screams. Even snipers were deployed. Smart move. There’s just no escape!

But what I notice other than that, the movie also focus on who’s the rich and who’s the poor. The rich being the rich. The poor being the poor. Such a society! 

I let those who haven’t watch to feel what its like and straight to your opinion. I’ve said enough =D

Its still an interesting movie though. You can bet I will watch if there’s another annual Purge! =D
