The Divergent Series: Insurgent 3D

Shailene Woodley leads this follow-up to 2014’s Divergent, the young adult dystopian sci-fi about a heavily-guarded community in the near future broken into five factions based on individual skill sets. Theo James, Kate Winslet, Ansel Elgort, Miles Teller and Zoë Kravitz return alongside new additions Naomi Watts and Octavia Spencer.

In the wreckage of a futuristic Chicago, Tris (Woodley) attempts to find her comrades while living life on the run as a fugitivre alongside Four (James). With Jeanine (Winslet), leader of the elitist Erudite faction, closing in on them, Tris must discover what her parents died to protect. But Janine isn’t the only one catching up with Tris – the truth of the family’s past closes in on her too.

Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman co-wrote the script, which may either be a good thing (he wrote A Beautiful Mind) or a bad thing (he wrote and directed A Winter’s Tale).

There’s no question that the feature is a leaner, meaner affair than its predecessor.

Once you swallow the giant pill that is the premise, it just about makes sense, and Woodley sells it with all her conviction.

Insurgent So this is the second instalment of the Divergent book series. I felt is was better than the first, more intense and gave a better understanding of what it’s really about. Like ‘Hunger Games, ‘Inception’ with big hints of ‘Maze Runner’ towards the end. Enjoyable and even more romanticism than the first. Worth the extra to watch in 3D. Looking...
