Movie Review: THE DIVERGENT SERIES: INSURGENT. The Film KICKS ASS

INSURGENT KICKS ASS

If you enjoyed the exciting, action-packed adventure of DIVERGENT, get ready for a whole new ride. INSURGENT, simply kicks ass!



INSURGENT picks up right where DIVERGENT left off. With Tris (Shailene Woodley), Four (Theo James), Caleb (Ansel Elgort) and Peter (Miles Teller), now a part of the Amity faction -- and you know that tranquility and peacefulness cannot last for long -- though Four seems to take to this harmonious lifestyle with ease. But it soon becomes clear that his two Dauntless companions, and one Erudite, do not conform to the Amity faction with the ease that he has. Acclimating to this new life doesn’t last for long as 
Jeanine (Kate Winslet), and her manipulated army, are out to destroy all Divergents and will go to any length to find and exterminate them.

INSURGENT’s action does not stop. From the first scene to the last, this movie provides the roller-coaster of entertainment that any moviegoer dreams of riding. But, if you’re a fan of the books, get ready for new twists and turns. INSURGENT delivers a hard, fast-paced, “no apologies” approach to an exciting, mind blowing adventure with its storyline and its special effects. You are kept on the edge of your seat wondering what is real and what is part of a simulation. While we knew in DIVERGENT what a bad ass Four was, we find in INSURGENT just how tough Tris can be as well. As she deals with not only the physical, but the mental and emotional stresses of discovering who she is in this repressed world.



One of the best parts about INSURGENT is the growth in Tris and Four’s relationship. This is a love story that any girl between the age of 10 on up seems to savor. Four may be a killing machine, but he lays his heart down at the feet of a seemingly, average girl in DIVERGENT. From the beginning, he saw the strength, courage and bravery in her that no one else saw. His unshakable trust and belief in her and her decisions to do the right thing, even with dire consequences to herself, is the man we all dream of.

Theo James has established himself in the book of Hollywood Heartthrobs through the character of Four in DIVERGENT, and now he has cemented himself there with his unconditional love and non-stop protection of Tris in INSURGENT. Don’t get me wrong, he might have a soft-side with Tris, but the body count goes up considerably in this movie. Four’s darker side, and the extent his is willing to go to protect Tris, proves itself in a shocking scene that is haunting and unforgettable.



INSURGENT also brings to the forefront the anti-faction: the Factionless. While they were a background faction in DIVERGENT, they become a central character in INSURGENT. Led by Four’s own mother, Evelyn (Naomi Watts), be ready for a changing of the guard of in who is the superpower is in the Divergent world. While Jeanine's vision seemed fairly clear in DIVERGENT, we are left with anything but definitive answers about Evelyn in INSURGENT. While she proclaims to love Four and wants what’s best for all of them, her history of abandoning him to a violent father and her uncomfortable reunion with her son leave us all to believe she will be the next villain in this saga -- and the first person to doubt her intentions is Four, her own son. So while we are left unclear of what exactly are Evelyn’s intentions, we do find out she is willing to do anything to get the ultimate control.

INSURGET is in one word: awesome. It has a complex storyline with lots of action and amazing, never-seen-before visual effects. Its twist and turns are unpredictable leaving you anxiously awaiting what will happen next. With its talented cast of actors and inspiring storyline, it is a must-see for everyone. I know I am going to go see it again!
