Newt Scamander is back in a film that, while magical, lacks some of the heart and magic of the previous films as it tackles on too much story and a too large cast, forcing stories to get sidelined and condensed.
A much to long film that lacks character direction leaving the audience utterly confused and unsatisfied.
Insurgent stars Shailene Woodley as Tris Prior, the Divergent protagonist who is on the run from the power hungry Erudites lead by the ruthless Jeanine (played by Kate Winslet). Alongside Four (played by Theo James), her friend and love, the two search for allies in the unlikeliest places of all in the futuristic ruins of Chicago. Together, they must find what Tris’s mother gave her life to hide, what Jeanine want’s so badly, the secret of the past that may be the key – or destruction – of the future.
An entertaining film that brings to life a novel that focuses on the cost of unity at a particular price. While not a terribly unique concept, Shailene Woodley was able to bring to life her character and make herself, the character and the film shine. Read on for a full review.
