The Divergent Series: Insurgent



My review of Insurgent can be found at the Third Way Cafe website: http://www.thirdway.com/MM/?Page=8146_The+Divergent+Series%3A+Insurgent

While this series continues to provide some thought-provoking ideas, the second film is a step down from the first (which was no classic). Apparently the screenplay diverges from the novel in many places, even in the central focus of Insurgent's plot. Since I am told the novel was poorly written, this is no cause for complaint, but the screenplay is the weakest part of this film, which features some of the stupidest scenes I have seen in a long time (in fairness, I generally stay away from silly action films aimed at the young). Insurgent gets **+. My mug is down.
