The Divergent Series: Allegiant

divergent-allegiant-movie-reviews

Allegiant is based on the Divergent series of books by Veronica Roth. It is the sequel to Divergent (2014) and Insurgent (2015) and it will precede Ascendant in 2017.

After the revelation in Insurgent that post-apocalyptic Chicago was walled off as an experiment by those on the outside world, the remaining factions descend into chaos. The remaining members of the Erudite faction are put on mock trials and executed, and Tris’ brother Caleb is scheduled to be judged next.

Frustrated that his mother Evelyn has now taken over as dictator, Four begins to plot a way to get over the city walls with Tris and find out who, or what, lies on the other side. However, Tris decides to break Caleb free first. Her action puts all of the remaining factions hot on their trail as they race for the wall. Tori, Peter, and Christina join their group along the way.

As they make it to the other side, they find a wasteland destroyed by war. But in their search, they run across the people that built the Chicago experiment in the first place and their technology is centuries more advanced than they ever suspected. Tris learns that she’s the key to all of their efforts, but at what cost to mankind?

****

For me its a good movie but a terrible movie adaptation. Divergent was a good start then Insurgent was a bit off the book but Allegiant is way more off than the last one. They changed a lot of stuff and some of the characters from the book are missing. There are a lot of characters and events in the book that will make the movie a lot more better but they chose to do it differently which made the adaptation more awful. Yes, the effects are kinda good and the actors were great but still it doesn’t change how crappy and predictable the story is. As a big fan of Veronica Roth’s series, I’m disappointed with this adaptation. I wanted the movie to be good as the book but sadly I didn’t do it justice

Well, for those who haven’t read the book but like the first two films, I think you’ll like this but the book is way better. And I still don’t see a need for splitting the last book into two movies. I hope they wont change the ending though.

6.5/10
