Movie Review: Insurgent

Insurgent is a 2015 science fiction adventure film based on the second book of Veronica Roth's Divergent trilogy of the same name. It is the sequel to the 2014 film Divergent. The film stars Shailene Woodley, Kate Winslet, Jai Courtney, Mekhi Phifer, Theo James, Ansel Elgort, Octavia Spencer, and Zoe Kravitz. The plot of Insurgent takes place three days after the first movie where the faction system in post-apocalyptic Chicago is crumbling. It has a budget of $110 million and has yet to prove itself in the box office.


The story goes like this: As she searches for allies and answers in the wake of the uprising, Tris and Four are on the run. Being hunted by Jeanine Matthews, the leader of the Erudite faction, Tris and Four will race against time as they try to figure out what Abnegation 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 faces one impossible challenge after another as she unlocks the truth about the past and ultimately the future of her world.

Insurgent is of adventure, thriller, sci-fi genre, which runs for approximately 119 minutes. It's rated PG-13 in most countries for intense violence and action throughout, some sensuality, thematic elements and brief language. I must say that it is much better than the first movie. Shailene Woodley has become better as an actress. Her body is banging too. The story line is also much easier to follow and less confusing compared to the first movie. The use of computer generated animation in the movie has been taken to the next level as well. It was enjoyable, entertaining and can be easily recommended to those who like watching adventure movies. The film is available in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D.

RATING: 4 out of 5 STARS


Til then...
