Tris and Four are on the run, while they attempt to find the remaining Dauntless for a war, which they may or may not win.
There are a lot of mixed signals about The Divergent Series: Insurgent
. I can see why entirely. I saw the film on opening day, and while I was busy busting out the popcorn and hyping over what's to come, I found myself a little frustrated at times. Shailene Woodley's character Tris, was a little too much of an angry teenager to me.
She would be angry and distraught for her sins, which made sense, but then she continued to be depressed and angry throughout the film. I thought there was going to be a point where she found herself, but it wasn't until she was fighting herself in the Sim that she found peace with herself.
But did she? Or did she find "peace" so she can learn the message?
Theo James' character, Four, or Tobias Eaton, developed in a good way for me, we got to see that scared little boy again, when he meets his "dead" mother. It was something I took interest to, but did not develop as much as I had wanted.
I am a sucker for action scenes, so I have no complaints there whatsoever. Though, I must say I was quite sad to see Eric from Dauntless die. He was the perfect villain to me; he was realistic, witty, and kind of charming in a creepy way. He said one thing in the film I loved: "I learned to cope with the blood on my hands."
That made me see him less as a villain, though it was a bit sadistic!
Kate Winslet's character, Jeanine, made me a little sad. She wasn't as cold and evil as i'd hope she would be. I loved the character, but there were times where she seemed almost genuine, and that threw me for a loop.
I enjoyed this film for what it was, but I feel it did not succeed Divergent
What did you guys think of the film?
