Undercover cops Schmidt (Hill) and Jenko (Tatum) swap high school for college in order to thwart another drugs ring.

  • US/France
  • 103 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: James DeMonaco
  • Cast: Frank Grillo, Carmen Ejogo, Zach Gilford

Engagingly blunt sequel to 2013's low-budget home invasion sensation The Purge: here, LA cop Sergeant (Grillo) finds himself defending four innocent people from the annual night of state-sanctioned, city-wide lawlessness. With striking performances from Grillo and Ejogo, it's patchy but proficient, and an intelligent expansion of the franchise.

Blu (Eisenberg) and Jewel (Hathaway) travel to the Amazon to discover Jewel's family, but old adversary Nigel (Clement) is keen on revenge. Amiable sequel to the macaw-themed 2010 original; despite dubious racial stereotyping in the supporting cast, there's enough colour and incident to make for passable family entertainment.

When the mutants of the future face extinction, they send Wolverine (Jackman) back in time to change destiny.
