I saw The Purge: Anarchy a little over a month ago, and while my official review is still under embargo, I think it’s okay if I tell you that I really enjoyed it. Whereas I felt the first movie had trouble finding its identity, the sequel is a small-scale action film and much better for it. It also has a great lead performance from Frank Grillo, and he does a great job carrying the picture. The original was a sleeper hit, and I hope that the sequel can still be a standout among this summer’s big-budget blockbusters.
I’m pleased to announce we’re giving away 20 admit-two passes to the Atlanta screening of The Purge: Anarchy. Hit the jump to find out how you can see the movie early and for free. The film also stars Carmen Ejogo, Zach Gilford, Kiele Sanchez, and Michael K. Williams. The Purge: Anarchy opens July 18th.
To enter for a chance to win an admit-two pass, send an e-mail to Collider.Passes@gmail.com with the subject line “THE PURGE: ANARCHY”. The screening is on Tuesday, July 15th at 7:00pm at Regal Atlantic Station, so don’t enter if you think you’ll be unavailable. Please note that a pass is not a ticket.

In case you haven’t seen it, here’s the trailer:
Here’s the official synopsis for The Purge: Anarchy:
The New Founders of America invite you to celebrate your annual right to Purge. The Purge: Anarchy, the sequel to summer 2013’s sleeper hit that opened to No. 1 at the box-office, sees the return of writer/director/producer James DeMonaco to craft the next terrifying chapter of dutiful citizens preparing for their country’s yearly 12 hours of anarchy.
