Shailene Woodley gives it her all, but Insurgent is still a resounding step back for a franchise struggling to distinguish itself from the dystopian YA crowd. Read critic reviews

Audience Reviews for The Divergent Series: Insurgent

  • While the first film of the series presented a fairly intriguing intro to this world and story, this sequel falls flat on its “ever so hoping to be the next Hunger Games” face. The plot is sluggish and the characters are just boring. I’m sure the studio is VERY MUCH regretting they greenlit the entire series for film because unless they cut the budget in a major way this is going to be a black hole for revenue. Shailene Woodley is just okay in this as most of her CGI scenes with sound recorded after the fact make her sound like a shrieking combination of Emma Stone, Scarlett Johansson, and a cat that is wide awake during a neutering. Too bad she never jumped on that Mary Jane Watson Spider-Man train for some cash. Oh well.patrick w Super Reviewer
  • First one was good, but this is utterly forgettable.
  • I am a huge fan of the Divergent series, and after reading all the books, I went so far as to proclaim that parts of it were even better than the Hunger Games. Unlike The Hunger Games and the first film in the series, Insurgent starts to veer away from the novel, making it hard for the fans, to envision just how they’ll make the jump into the third book in the series. In what was once Chicago, the war between the factions has begun, and this time, no faction is safe from the Erudite. The intellectual faction has started collecting all the Divergent, in an attempt to open a mysterious box, that supposedly contains something that will change all their lives forever. Tris and Four are on the other-side, doing everything they can to stop the group from hunting the Divergents, whom they see as the key to changing everything. The first part of this film is an excellent representation of the novel and is every bit as exhilarating, but the second part veers off into a new direction. The films producers said they wanted to make the story easier for the casual fan to understand, and they did that, unfortunately, taking away the complexity of the story, takes away some of it’s magic. As for the ending, it is completely different from the novel, leaving many to wonder if they’ll make the third book into a film at all. Indeed they plan to, but it’s hard to see just how they will go about doing it, after the events put in place by the end of this film. Shailene Woodley and Theo James returned for the sequel and again, they played the characters to tee, I really felt like these two were meant to play Tris and Four before the book was even set to be released on the big screen. Once again, the special effects, the acting, and the story are amazing, and this film would be worthy of five stars, if not for the ending that diverted too far away from the original story.
  • Derivative tripe, the second chapter of the Divergent series, Insurgent, is a generic and passionless sci-fi thriller. Picking up where the last film ended, Tris and her friends go on the run and are branded as renegades; meanwhile Jeanine searches for a Divergent with the ability to unlock a mysterious cubic that contains a message from the founders. The script is pretty weak and a rather poor adaptation of the novel. And Shailene Woodley is wholly unsuited to be an action hero; giving a bland and vacant performance. Additionally, the special effects are remarkably bad for a big budget film: as the CGI backgrounds really stand out and look fake. Yet the action sequences are exciting and action-packed. A lackluster film that doesn’t really go anywhere, Insurgent fails to deliver a compelling adventure.
