A couple are driving home to their kids when their car runs out of gas just as the Purge commences. Meanwhile, a police sergeant goes out into the streets to get revenge on a man, and a mother and daughter run from their home after a small army attack it in an attempt to kidnap them. The five people meet up as they attempt to survive the yearly Purge, the longest 12 hours of their lives.
This is what I wanted from the first installment of this series. I was not a fan of the first film, thought the concept of the Purge was great and I think the first film was lacking in many areas and left many disappointed. Instead of inside one single house like the first movie, this one takes place out on the streets where all the real action is. Although I wouldn’t consider either of these “scary” movies, I would put it more on the thrilling side. There was a lot more killing, more action, more of what I expected from this concept. Although I liked it much better than the first, I still wouldn’t say it was a GREAT movie, it was sub par acting aside from the main character played by Frank Grillo who did a pretty decent job. If you are looking for a movie to kill some time and want to see killing, gore, or are just a fan of the first movie I think this movie is worth checking out, but you could wait for a matinee or even DVD if you wanted to.
