Synopsis

The Purge is a night where all crime is legal and all hospitals, fire stations, poison control centers and police stations in the United States are closed down for 12 hours. In 2023, a year after The Purge of 2022, a couple named Shane and Liz, are driving to one of their sister’s house in Los Angeles to wait out the Purge when their car runs out of gas just as the Purge commences, and they flee from masked attackers on motorcycles and minibikes. Meanwhile, Leo Barnes goes out into the streets to get revenge on the man who killed his son, and a mother and daughter, Eva and Cali, run into the night after an unknown group of well-equipped assailants break into their tenement. The five people meet up as they attempt to survive the night.

Dove Review

Effective January 1st, 2009, The Dove Foundation Review Team has ceased reviewing all NC-17 rated movies and certain extraordinarily explicit R-rated films. This decision was reached due to the fact that Dove reviewers are parents or grandparents with conservative values. As such, we feel that we can no longer expose these dedicated and caring people to movies that contain distasteful and appalling stories that are focused on graphic horror and violence, and/or gratuitous depictions of explicit sex and nudity. “The Purge: Anarchy” is considered to be such a film. Our report is therefore limited to the business information (title, rating, distributor, producer, director, actors, etc), synopsis, and the content chart.
