  • Film Review: 'The Purge: Anarchy'

    The title may imply heightened scope and stakes, but only the premise is out of order in "The Purge: Anarchy," a swiftly delivered, surprise-free sequel to 2013′s economical sleeper hit. Moving out of the home and into the streets, writer-helmer James DeMonaco's noisy follow-up shifts genre gears slightly, largely abandoning domestic-invasion horror for an urban-thriller template that notionally expands on the first film's sketchy class satire. Success, however, has bred self-seriousness in this probable franchise, as "Anarchy" uses an expanded running time to pontificate emptily on the sociopolitical implications of its still-ludicrous allegorical setup -- a future America in which all crime is legalized for one night a year -- at the expense of any whopping B-movie jolts. Nevertheless, considering the scarcity of comparable genre fare in theaters, plus the first film's growing profile in ancillary, this nasty annual event is probably good for at least one more year.
