Movie Review: Insurgent

The plot of Insurgent takes place three days after the previous installment and continues to follow Tris Prior; Tris and Four are on the run after evading a hostile takeover from Jeanine and the rest of Erudite. The faction system in post-apocalyptic Chicago is crumbling, and everyone is desperate for power and answers.

Insurgent raises the stakes for Tris as she searches for allies and answers in the ruins of a futuristic Chicago. Tris (Woodley) and Four (James) are now fugitives on the run, hunted by Jeanine (Winslet), the leader of the power-hungry Erudite elite. Racing against time, they must find out what Tris's family 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, with Four at her side, faces one impossible challenge after another as they unlock the truth about the past and ultimately the future of their world. 

The second installment in the adaptation of Veronica Roth’s Divergent trilogy of young adult books delivers more train-jumping antics and teen angst. The new film Insurgent contains all of the typical ingredients of an apocalypse film focused on young adults. The design of each faction’s domain is eye-catching. The simulations scenes are superb, one of its kind and delivered exemplified special effects. The film’s impressive special effects and its exciting third act make this sequel stand out a little bit more than its immediately-forgettable predecessor Divergent. I truly enjoyed watching the film and its like a visual treat to me. Overall I can say that so far Insurgent is best action sci-fi young adult apocalypse film that I watch this year.

My Verdict:  5/5
