It is March 21 2023, the day of the annual Purge event. Sergeant Leo Barnes (Frank Grillo) goes out into the streets heavily armed.
Waitress Eva Sanchez (Carmen Ejogo) rushes home to her daughter Cali (Zoë Soul) and her father Papa Rico (John Beasley). As they prepare to lock down for the evening, Papa Rico slips out of the apartment and sells himself to a wealthy family as a Purge offering in exchange for $100,000.
A couple named Shane (Zach Gilford) and Liz (Kiele Sanchez) are driving to the house of Shane's sister when their car dies as the Purge begins.
Their stories intertwine and they try to survive the chaos and violence of the Purge Night.
Well done James DeMonaco. The Purge: Anarchy is a good horror thriller film and it is worth the time. The story is compelling and full of plot twists, it is harsh all the time but still it manages to give hope to humanity.
The music, by Nathan Whitehead, is on point. The masks are good, though I liked The Purge's better. Earlier co-star in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Frank Grillo is my new hero.
