"The Purge: Anarchy" First Trailer

I watched the first full trailer for "The Purge: Anarchy" and it looks as if it moving in the direction I feel it should have moved in at the beginning.

The trailer is filled to the brim with armored cars, clans of purgers, fire-soaked cars, brawlers, weapons of nearly every sort. I mean let's face it, the idea of an annual 12-hour event where all crime is legal is a preposterous idea, so it deserves an equally preposterous movie. Purposefully make something so off-the-wall, something that doesn't take itself seriously at all. I also hope that this movie stays as far away from the horror genre as possible. A problem I had with the first movie was that it wasn't scary and it shouldn't have been scary. With the premise in question, a home-invasion horror movie is the dumbest way to use the idea.

"The Purge: Anarchy" looks to have some intensity in it, but that can be used well. I like that they are expanding the world of The Purge, because secluding the movie to a rich family planning to hold themselves up and wait it out is silly. Frank Grillo is the main feature of the trailer and it looks like we will get a few stories in one for this film. I am looking forward to that, I want to see how all aspects of our culture is affected by this law. I hope the movie features lots of what the title promises, Anarchy.

One more thing, is just me or would Frank Grillo make a great Punisher??
