It isn’t “The Exorcist” but it isn’t exactly “Sharknado” either; “The Purge: Anarchy” is a competent horror thriller. Frank Grillo is great in the lead, and there are some terrific twists that I didn’t see coming. The entire film is a not-so-subtle stab at the one percent; I’d rate this film as NSFW — not suitable for the wealthy.
The movie descends into camp here and there with the oppressed rising up a bit too cartoonishly to seem like a real life coup.
The ending — involving life-and-death choices made by two characters — was great. I wish they had expanded on that.
