“The Purge: Anarchy” (2014)

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.
