An annual mischief night of mass mayhem and social breakdown thriller. There has been a major improvement in ‘The Purge: Anarchy(2014)’ over the first film, expanding its world and using its statement as a shadow to our own society.
‘The Purge’ debuted in early June of 2013 summer by Universal. Blumhouse Productions and Platinum Dunes $3 million picture had a killer hook, a world where a crime was legal for twelve hours on one night out of the year, and the Ethan Hawke home invasion thriller opened with $34m, a record for a non-sequel R-rated horror film. Quite a few people hated ‘The Purge’.
‘The Purge’ film was basically a home invasion picture with the whole “for one night a year, all crime is legal” and was short enough to get its job done with minimum hassle. But ‘The Purge: Anarchy (2014)’ is a genuine development in every way, expanding the canvas and creating a story that is truly about the Purge and it’s also an intriguing concept that this sequel uses to the fullest advantage. ‘The Purge: Anarchy(2014)’ promises to give audiences more of what, they wanted last time.
‘The Purge: Anarchy(2014)’ concentrates on a handful of disparate people caught outside during the annual slaughter. However, ‘The Purge’ is about one well-to-do family struggling to stay alive after their home security system was compromised.
Director James DeMonaco’s has opened up the story narratively and divided the story into three strands. Eventually, all strands joined together into a point. A young waitress Eva (Carmen Ejogo) and her daughter Cali (Zoë Soul), a mysterious armed stranger (Frank Grillo) called only Sergeant and a young married couple Shane (Zach Gilford) and his separated partner, Liz (Kiele Sanchez).
Eva and her daughter Cali attacked by a rape-minded neighbor, married couple Shane and Liz on the verge of divorce whose car broke down an hour before the Purge and now seek shelter, a lone stranger only called Sergeant, who had his own agenda but can’t just drive past the obvious injustice. The rest of the film involves their attempts at staying out of danger.
The film offers a genuine portrait of life during this crazy event from several different points-of-view.
