Now that you've seen it, what did you think? United we purge. Now in theaters everywhere is James DeMonaco's sequel to last year's horror thriller The Purge, this one titled The Purge: Anarchy, starring Frank Grillo as Sergeant, with Carmen Ejogo, Zach Gilford, Kiele Sanchez, Zoë Soul, John Beasley, Jack Conley and Michael K. Williams. This time when the Annual Purge commences, five people on the streets of Los Angeles meet up as they attempt to survive the night where all crime is legal.

Note: I haven't been able to see the film myself yet, so here's an excerpt from our critic Jeremy Kirk's review: "The Purge: Anarchy delivers as promised, a stylish actioner packed with all the hell that would come with such a law in the real world. DeMonaco has discovered the slasher for the current age, ideologies are more dangerous than any single, masked killer roaming the streets. With intensity and eruptions in equal parts, The Purge: Anarchy delivers its maker's message as it should, a few hundred bullets at a time and maybe even a machete or two thrown in for good measure." Do you agree with him?
What did you think of James DeMonaco's The Purge: Anarchy? Kick ass upgrade or let down?
