Sometime in the future mankind has been reduced to ruins living within the confines of a crumbling city. Governed by 5 groups of people, each with distinct personality characteristics it would appear as if Beatrice (Shailene Woodley) fits in with more than one group– thus making her divergent. Thought to be a plague that needs to be eradicated, governess, Jeanine (Kate Winslet), is on a mission to round up all divergent humans, but for what purpose and to what end? Could it be that Beatrice just might be the missing link to save humanity but also destroy it? insurgent Directed by Robert Schwentke and based on the novels by Veronica Roth this young adult action adventure journey continues to do exactly what’s expected of the genre, continuing to play out like a Hunger Games knock-off. Points for originality? Nope, not a chance. Points for acting? Eh, maybe a few. Points for engaging action? Sure, a few nods and smiles here. Anything else really noteworthy? Not particularly, if you’re a fan of the books you’ll probably have greater appreciation overall. For the rest of us, skip it and use your two hours in some other productive manner. Insurgent is rated PG-13.
