MOVIE REVIEW: INSURGENT

Wednesday, April 01, 2015 Posted by Kevan Lee , , No comments


The first movie was called Divergent and it was indeed forgettable. Then came Insurgent, the second episode of the story. Was it good enough to watch in the cinema, or should you rather just take the money and watch Cinderella?

THE GOOD

It continues almost instantly from the first part with good amount of flashback to help jog your memories on the first episode. The pacing on the story was good as we come to see they pickup where they left out after the first episode. Tris (Shailene Woody) played her role really exceptional in this movie as the main protagonist in this series. I personally felt the action in the movie was not too shabby at all, with lots of guns and occasionally some close quarter moves from Four (Theo James).

THE BAD

Although the pacing was good, I felt as though some of the parts was not related to each other at all. It felt like a filler then again I have not read the book therefore I have no idea if those scenes are actually there for a reason. The appearance of Jeanine (Kate Winslet) in the series does not help to do anything to up the tempo as it felt blend. The ending sparks little confusion even for me, as I struggle to piece the next episode together.

CONCLUSION

The movie is more towards the fans, as it felt little short for me. I prefer the Hunger Games: Mockingjay although it was boring as shit. Then again, both plays on the very same storyline and also the same type of protagonist. Therefore, you can watch it just to know the ending or simply because you are a fan.
