Synopsis

When Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James) are exposed as Divergents, they go on the run from Jeanine (Kate Winslet), the ruthless leader of the Erudite faction, along with Caleb (Ansel Elgort), Peter (Miles Teller) and Four's father Marcus (Ray Stevenson).

They find refuge at Amity and Tris tries to cope with her guilt at having killed Will, even though it was in self defense. The group, especially Tris and Four, find it difficult to blend into Amity's easygoing ways and when they are discovered, they have to go on the run again.

Tris tries to find out what the secret was that her parents died to protect - and once she finds out what it was, it will explain why Jeanine is so bent on capturing her.

Based on the bestselling young adult novel Insurgent by Veronica Roth.

  • 3 stars "Not as good as the first, very slow"
  • 2 stars "I loved Divergent but this sequel was just slapped together for the most part. None of the scenes were as convincing or as fun as Divergent was, here the scenes were not thought out nearly as well. What we have here is a total bust in comparison to the original film. A big disappointment to say the least. I gave Divergent a 4 out of 5. This sequel is barely a 2 in my view."
