Quotes

[first lines]
Jeanine: Peace. Long ago, before the Founders established this great city of ours, that word was all but meaningless. An ideal as elusive as a dream. Now, 200 years later, we are, all of us, living proof that peace is indeed attainable. The reason for this is, of course, our Faction System. Erudite, Dauntless, Amity, Candor, Abnegation. In dividing people according to personality and aptitude, we've created a society in which each faction plays a critical role in maintaining the social ...

Exciting second installment in which Tris will be forced to make difficult choices about sacrifice , love , courage, and allegiance
15 October 2018 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Insurgent movie is a sci-fi, action and drama movie based on a book by Veronica Roth . It contaisn noisy action , rhrills , chills , high body-count and impressive state-of art FX . Sixteen-year-old Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley) lives in a dystopian society divided into five factions. and now she seaches answers in the ruins of a futuristic Chicago. As each faction represents a different way of handling things. Erudite are the intelligent. Candor the honest. Abnegation the selfless. Amity the kind. Dauntless the brave.The Erudite have declared war against Abnegation, because they think that they have important information about the Divergent, who are apparently dangerous for the faction-system. After the earth-shattering revelations of Divergent and beyond the wall enclosing Chicago , Beatrice Prior is running with her brother Caleb (Ansel Elgort) and with her sweetfriend Four (Theo James) from enemies . All of them have to continue her fight against a nasty alliance run by Kate Winslet which threatens to tear her society apart with the help from others on her side. Tris approaches the residents of Amity led by Johanna (Octavia Spencer) , but they all stand away from her. Later on , they meet the Factionless leader and Four's mother, Evelyn (Naomi Watts). Tris faces one impossible challenge after another as she unlocks the truth about the past and ultimately the future of her world. In order to survive, Tris has to make imposible decission about herself and her beloved friends. One Choice Can Destroy You and to finally discover the shocking truth of the world around her .

It's a standard Science Fiction with no much sense where there is suspense, thriller, getaways and pursuits , frenetic action , struggles , explosions , violence and enough characterization . Dealing with a girl who is escaping with his fiance and brother from the enemy, while unleashing new secrets about her family's past , hers parents , Tony Goodwyn- Ashley Judd, and her mysterious Divergence . It is a very loose rendition of Veronica Roth's novel, that packs a vastly different screenplay , unlike the first movie . It takes parts of a successful trilogy , in the films "Insurgent" is the sequel to "Divergent" and is followed by "Allegiant" with Allegiant -part 2 being called "Ascendant". Whereas there are only actually 3 books in the trilogy. Shailene Whooley gives an acceptable acting as the brave teen who is haunted by her past and takes desperate , risked choices to protect the ones she loves , as well as she must confront her inner demons . Support cast is frankly excellent such as : Ansel Elgort , Jai Courtney , Miles Teller, Zoë Kravitz , Ray Stevenson , Kate Wislet , Naomi Watts , Ben Lloyd-Hughes , Cynthia Barrett , Ashley Judd , Tony Goldwyn and Octavia Spencer .

The picture contains a colorful and brilliant cinematography by Florian Ballhaus , it was mostly filmed in Atlanta instead of Chicago and being the first film in the "Divergent" series to be released in 3D . As well as a thrilling and adjusted to action musical score by Joseph Trapanese . The motion picture was well directed by Robert Schwenke , though Neil Burger was meant to direct this film, but couldn't due to scheduling conflicts with post-production on Divergente (2014). Robert Schewenke has directed a few but successful films such as : The Time Traveler's Wife ,Tattoo , Flightplan , Allegiant and his last one made in Germany : The captain .
