    It's also breathtaking to watch a throwaway studio sequel break its corporate chains before your very eyes and become something thrilling and dangerous and alive.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • William Goss

    The story has a welcome sense of continuous momentum, and what’s more, DeMonaco has a better handle on both his skewering of the entitled upper class (not as pointed as Paul Verhoeven’s ultraviolent satire, but a start) and the righteous anger of the targeted lower class (personified by Michael K. Williams’ resistance leader, Carmelo).

  • James Rocchi

    The Purge: Anarchy expands on its predecessor, but the excellent news is that the sequel isn’t just bigger and badder and bleaker; it’s also better, smarter, stranger and tougher. Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    The movie's potential blossoms whenever it toys with the allegorical ingredients head-on. DeMonaco's script plays like a devious Brothers Grimm tale told through the filter of Occupy Wall Street.

    It's better than the first.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    Kill or be killed isn’t the official tag line of The Purge: Anarchy, but it fits. It would also make a more suitable title for this satisfyingly creepy, blunt, down-and-dirty thriller, one of those follow-ups that improves on the original.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Frank Scheck

    The Purge: Anarchy efficiently exploits its high-concept premise while delivering far more visceral thrills than its predecessor.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    Retains the original’s premise and politics, but actually puts them to use.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    Isn't a cheap knock-off but an equally effective, deliciously disturbing movie. It's bound to delight genre fans (and dismay critics, who attacked the first as heavy-handed and sloppy).

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The result is an action-oriented survival tale, not unlike the kind of movie that Stallone or Schwarzenegger might have made back in the '80s.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    The film is at its best when it focuses on the more specific conflicts of five people thrown together on Purge night.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Kevin C. Johnson

    Like the first movie The Purge: Anarchy, is trash masking as social commentary, and its depiction of unrelenting, sanctioned violence can be hard to stomach.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Ed Gonzalez

    DeMonaco may doubly, sometimes triply, underline the story's governing theme of social power and how it's exchanged, but the rage and lucidity of these ideas resonate.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Mike McCahill

    The franchise is a low-risk work-in-progress, but DeMonaco is improving as a shotmaker.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Inkoo Kang

    Ultimately, “Anarchy” is too cartoonish in its politics to gain the allegorical resonance it clearly strives for — and worse yet, it's just no fun.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Simon Abrams

    So weak on a basic storytelling level that it makes you want to nitpick everything about it, from characters' generically illogical decisions (ex: Why are you running towards mounted guns?) to its cheap-looking, jiggly hand-held cinematography. Full Review
  • Bruce Ingram

    In The Purge: Anarchy, unfortunately, grim and brutal is pretty much all we get.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    The Purge: Anarchy is a good deal bloodier, but also — gulp — a good deal better than its predecessor. Make no mistake, a good "Purge" does not equal a good movie, but the post-apocalyptic thriller is slightly more interesting because it takes itself, and its menace, more seriously.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    The Purge: Anarchy improves upon the original, but it's still a long way from being the sort of smart, savage satire it would have to be to fully exploit such a socially charged hook.

    HitFix Full Review
  • Loren King

    Give credit to writer-director James DeMonaco for at least attempting to give his action thriller some heft with a plot that concerns our obsession with violence, ham-fisted as it is. But The Purge: Anarchy is still just an excuse to bombard us with high-powered weaponry, armored vehicles, vigilantes, and masked marauders in creepy Joker-like makeup.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Andrew Lapin

    It needs to be emphasized again for the record that The Purge: Anarchy is a tremendously stupid film... But there’s an almost-camp quality to how DeMonaco takes this stupidity to greater heights, building a complex mythology around the plot like a giant moat around a pillow fort.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Joe McGovern

    When the situation is played totally straight, as it is for eighty percent of the running time, the message is boring: We'd all commit murder, theft and anarchy if only we could. With a narrative as depressively simplistic as that, we do find ourselves identifying with the characters in the movie—counting the minutes until the Purge is over.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    Mainly, though, this is a humorless film that skimps on the delicious opportunity for spousal retribution.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Kerry Lengel

    You'd expect the sequel to be an improvement based on production values alone, and you would be right, but not by much.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Guy Lodge

    For all the philosophical and metaphorical shortcomings of his script, however, DeMonaco is an efficient orchestrator of action.

    Variety Full Review
  • John Semley

    Soulless and idiotic and abysmally scripted as it is, Anarchy, like its predecessor, feels mournfully relevant.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    It’s preachier, more diverse in its casting. All of which make it more specific and limit it. Throw in generally lackluster performances and illogical plot twists and “Anarchy” is seriously crippled.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Gabe Toro

    This one veers further from actual horror into an action picture. “The Purge” tries to unsettle. The Purge: Anarchy wants you to cheer.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    The film defies one of the fundamental rules of capitalism: Exploitation of the proletariat may be well and good, but don’t execute them all. At the same time, “The Purge: Anarchy” obeys a cardinal law of Hollywood: Shoot first and ask questions later.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    I’ve read ingredients labels that were scarier than The Purge: Anarchy, a plodding horror flick that mistakenly thinks it has big ideas.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    The film’s “What if?” scenario takes the germ of an interesting social-science idea and lets it rot in a nasty, ethically questionable cesspool of junk cinema.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Walter Addiego

    The new film pokes heavyhanded fun at extreme conservatives and has a "power to the people" sub-theme, but it's full of ultra-violence and is dragged down by standard scare tactics, thin characters and the absurdities of the premise.
