Summary

Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James), now on the run from Jeanine (Kate Winslet), have to come together to get the answers that will unravel the secrets of the past.

Is The Plot Interesting?

I enjoyed the plot of Insurgent more than Divergent because I feel like it went at a faster pace and was generally more entertaining. Also, there was more character building than I expected.

Insurgent 1

Is The Acting Good?

Kate Winslet has a lot more to do in Insurgent and I love her performance as Jeanine. Jeanine is a devious characters with an interesting past and Kate Winslet portrays this perfectly.

Is The Directing Good?

The directing didn’t impress me at all; it seemed to be a bit all over the place. Don’t give me wrong there were some good moments within the directing but for the most part it didn’t do much for the movie.

Insurgent 2

Is The Cinematography Good?

There were definitely some good shots and lighting in Insurgent. The cinematography suited the movie perfectly and fitted the tone well. I feel like it made the movie more engaging as well.

Is It Worth Watching?

If you liked Divergent then you should probably watch Insurgent because it is slightly better than it’s predecessor but if you were to watch this before the first one it would make no sense.

3/5

I can’t let anyone else die because of me.
