Dumb, Unoriginal Sequel

'Divergent' was an okay distraction which was upheld by some good acting and directing. This is a very unremarkable series that doesn't have any original ideas, as it feels like a stale combination of many other 'young adult' book series turned movies - most notably 'Hunger Games'. Not enough to be considered a rip-off, but every single beat feels all too familiar. This sequel furthers the over-arching story by a single inch. It's mostly a faster-paced complete retread of the narrative of the first. No real progression is made, nothing new at all worth investing in. It's just kinda dumb. A low-level entertaining type of dumb. The slick action and editing, and Woodley's continued commitment, are the only things holding this together.

At least this was a bit better than the first part

"Divergent 100%. I'll be damned. What? She's what we've been looking for."

I really start hating those damn different film versions of children's books. They are always spread over several films so you always have to wait a year before you can see the sequel. Similarly this sequel to "Divergent". I could still partially remember what it was about, but the first 15 minutes I was actually systematically trying to reconstruct the previous film. It would be best to watch the previous movie once again before you start a sequel. But then again this happens never due to the lack of time. And then, to know that the last part of the sequel is again divided into two films, and that for the obvious reasons. Let's hope that my biggest fear won't come true, namely that we'll be ...

Trying to hard to be the next Inception

F**king teens.

The story to Insurgent is about the stakes for Tris as she searches for allies and answers in the ruins of a futuristic Chicago. Tris (Woodley) and Four (James) are now fugitives on the run, hunted by Jeanine (Winslet), the leader of the power-hungry Erudite elite. Racing against time, they must find out what Tris's family sacrificed their lives to protect, and why the Erudite leaders will do anything to stop them. Haunted by her past choices but desperate to protect the ones she loves, Tris, with Four at her side, faces one impossible challenge after another as they unlock the truth about the past and ultimately the future of their world.

To those who haven't seen my first review of Divergent basically I thought the movie was alright and I was kind of surprise that I...

Jennifer Lawrence better watch herself...

I'm not entirely sure what version of 'Insurgent' was seen by film critics but in all honestly, I think this was better than the first one which I also enjoyed. But this one is more self-assured and cuts to the chase. Audiences were introduced to this world so now it focuses on the characters and more importantly for viewers like me, the action. One thing you could fault 'Divergent' for was a lack of action to justify its 140 minute length but here 'Insurgent' tells an exciting girls own adventure tale in a shorter amount of time. There's even time for some political intrigue and philosophical rumination to boot. While it still dwells on the hackneyed romance, I honestly don't mind since Shailene Woodley and Theo James have such good chemistry together. Speaking of her, although this movi...
