This review will only be based on the movie because I totally forgot what happened in the book and let us not forget that the book totally sucked eggs. When Insurgent was finally showing in my local theatres, I jumped right in and asked my parents that we should watch Insurgent together. My dad, of course blamed me again for choosing such a horrid movie once again. (We recently watched Cinderella) I couldn’t blame my dad cause even I could see the cheesiness of the plot. I would have appreciated a little more action than some selfless shit going on because the directions/writers tried to enhance the persona of Tris (S. Woodley), she suddenly became a great fighter in martial arts and could beat the ass of Peter. (Recall: Tris was one of the worsts in Divergent) That was totally out of the blue and super abnormal…I couldn’t quite connect with our actress because I really don’t see her as Tris because she doesn’t omit that badassness and or coolness that the book character had. She kinda ruined it because of her emotional strain with her past as well.
The directors changed a lot in the movie, it was mostly focused on the reality of being selfless and how divergents are dangerous…Erudite took great measures to getting where they are, but for a faction based on intelligence they are the stupidest in the movie. Gosh! I can’t count the multiple errors in their choices. They are practically begging for war against the other factions. Caleb is one of those errors…the idiocy in that boy is out of my league. I don’t think it’s a surprise anymore that Caleb would eventually betray his sister (At least they took something original from the book). He got really annoying in the movie because his only strength is his intelligence and I mean his intelligence ONLY. When Tris was getting her ass kicked by some factionless, he just stood there and watched them beat her up. If not for Four, Tris would have died before Allegiant comes out. (Talking about Allegiant Scandal)
And now that I brought that up, that scene where they were fighting some factionless group was out of place because the blood in that scene was unnecessary, the directors just wanted to have more action because it’s one of the main genres in the story. But sorry, I totally noticed the anomaly there. Psch! Finally we get the supposed twist in the
novel movie where Four’s mother is actually alive. But that’s not the disappointing part, she is extremely young! She looks about Tris’ age…and she also doesn’t have that golden motherly persona nor does she show leader material. It didn’t surprise anyone that Four’s mother came out because it revealed itself flatly.
Even with this negative review I found myself enjoying the Insurgent movie because I prefer colour than the book itself, I really hated the novel version. Hehe I also love the effects in the movie, the lighting was also great! But it’s nothing to be excited about, really.
- Factionless group fight
- Supposed twist about Four’s mother
- Tris being the one and only 100% Divergent
- The truth serum
- Many more
Um…is this a love story or an action movie? Can something please explain to me the error in this movie poster. Ugh!
Tris looks abnormal here…
