Film This Weekend: The Divergent Series: Allegiant
Posted in: FILM THIS WEEKEND
Two known franchises are dropping their newest offerings this weekend! Kung Fu Panda, Po returns with yet another laughathon animation flick to complete the trilogy, while Allegiant of the Divergent series is ready with an action-packed sequel in the series.
Shailene Woodly returns as Tris in the latest Divergent movie – The Allegiant. The film takes yet another deep dive into the futuristic world of the sci-fi/action series and gathers up from the ending of “Insurgent”. Tris and Four are faced with far pressing dangers as they venture into a new unfamiliar territory. New truths are revealed as older ones are fast nullified as they are faced with decisions of who to trust in the world beyond the wall of Chicago as a battle brews close.
Adapted from Jessica Roth’s novel of the same name – the Divergent series is one of the newer action/adventure franchises to stir some interest in recent times. However, it has often times failed to make an impact as strong as its counterparts. It does get pushed back into oblivion between Hunger Games and Maze Runner. Somehow, this installment fails to stay completely coherent and interesting throughout as well. But, Divergent fans and book reader may enjoy it.
The film stars most of Hollywood’s young blood brigade including Theo James, Ansel Elgort, Zoe Kravitz and Miles Teller with Shailene Woodly in the lead.
