James DeMonaco improves upon the original film by exploring everything we questioned in the first place with The Purge: Anarchy.
Much larger in scope, the second Purge film finally shows us how the rest of the world might react to 12 hours of no law and it ain't a pretty sight.  We get to see how different types of people will handle it, with some for entertainment, some revenge, some for profit and some are just plain fuckin' nuts.  It goes a bit more in-depth with the concept and impact of The Purge without ever neutering the idea.  There's some silly manboy video game violence that's quite often a bit of a stretch but all in all, it's a fine little film that wants to say more than it really does.
