> Realising what’s left behind was the home.
Here comes the most expected adventure in the ‘Divergent’ series. I always wondered what lies outside the wall. So this sequel takes us to the new land where a fresh development takes place. A few old characters were terminated in order to introduce a bunch of new ones. As a theme, it just looked like ‘The Scorch Trial’, but of course totally a different setting.
The director was retained from the previous installment and I think he did a good job. The concept was too familiar. ‘Scorch Trial’, ‘Catching Fire’, ‘Aeon Flux’, all these films are just like this one. Thankfully, this story was decent. At least better than the previous and weaker than the first. The pace drastically held back due to the split of a book into two films. It has been done in the old days, but the present trend began after ‘Deathly Hallows’.
I was excited to know how big stretch it is going to be as a story wise. Because it looked like the things they’ve accomplished in one place and looking to explore beyond the boundary. I couldn’t predict the story, but I knew what’s going to happen in the end of every scene. The dystopian theme was clichéd, not the storyline. The way it ended is a sign for a big finale to commence in the final film of the series. Let’s hope for ‘Ascendant’ to end on a high note.
The first compulsion is to reach for an unflattering label when dubbing the third installment of the **Divergent** series as “the poor man’s **Hunger Games**”. Sure, the comparison was inevitable but all the Divergent editions had to do was prove that the unfair comparing and contrasting were wrong. Well, the knockoff status was indeed warranted and unfortunately this copycat YA Sci-Fi serving of a harried heroine and her excitable dystopian dealings never mustered up the kind of distinctive expectations that failed to fuel this flaccid futuristic fable. Hence, **The Divergent Series: Allegiant** is an over-stuffed mechanical continuation of a familiar film franchise trying desperately to fulfill its colorful action-packed whimsy left over by its pumped-up predecessors.
As mentioned, **Allegiant** is the third episode of the **Divergent** movie series. Of course Veronica Roth is the literary voice responsible for the books on which these films are based. Jokingly, one would probably imagine that both Roth and **Hunger Games** author Suzanne Collins are twin sisters seeing as though their imaginative wells of creativity are similar in style and content. The only difference is that Collins’s notable blueprint registered with forceful reception while Roth’s wannabe material was like an identical shadow trying to break out in its own shade.
Basically, **Allegiant** (much like the rest of the YA genre) is a glorified teen soap opera bombarded with awesome ray guns and youthful cynicism aimed at the controlling over-30 Establishment. Distrust and disillusionment is the recurring theme and the penalty for being young, attractive, repressed and rebellious is a cautionary tale for those that want to challenge the sinister Authority. As with **The Hunger Games’** Katniss Everdeen (played by Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence) we are subjected to Divergent diva Tris Pryor (Shailine Woodley) as the feminine firecracker ready to spring into action defeating the aging forces threatening their post- apocalyptic presence. Unfortunately for Woodley’s Tris she does not possess the explosive brooding or riveting material and eye-opening challenges that Lawrence’s Katniss was blessed with from the get-go. At least one common denominator is clear: both bad-ass babes have totally catchy, cool-sounding names, right?
The sluggish plotting in **Allegiant** revisits the enclosed post-apocalyptic Chicago where various “factions” of young folks are furiously fighting with one another. The tension is percolating big time as the trapped youthful residents are growing increasingly restless. The disenchanted Tris, along with her studly boyfriend Four (Theo James) and group of rebels, decide to break out of their Chicago-bound doldrums and climb the wall to escape their entrapment. Of course this means crossing over some treacherous terrain to reach a more, idyllic surrounding. The destination, as it turns out, is the comfortable haven for the monitoring overlords spying their every step.
Thankfully, Tris and her bunch stumble upon a picturesque civilization headed by leader David (Emmy-winner Jeff Daniels). The surroundings look idyllic but David is very shady because his agenda is to recruit the pure and precious Tris for his genetic experimentation. With Tris as his main guinea pig the devious David can plan on using his experimental agenda on the underprivileged pretty kids back in the walled-off Chicago. The educated guess is that David most likely would extend the same kind of testing treatment for “the Fringes” as well (they are the masses that exist outside the wall of Chicago in less flattering pockets of the region). In any event, Tris represents the ideal vision for his replication of purity and perfection to be transferred to the “damaged” souls out there. While Tris is intrigued by the CEO’s intention for bettering the impoverished population Four is skeptical about David’s focus on his gun-toting honey bunny.
To say that **The Divergent Series–Allegiant** is clunky and convoluted even for a showy older kiddie caper is an understatement to say the least. Director Robert Schwentke is basically on auto pilot here as the cameras roll while capturing the drawn out degrees of splashy stunts, showdowns and bombastic special effects flourishes. The silly-minded plot and utter familiarity of the “Big Brother watching over the young perished pretty people” feels empty and repetitive at its compelling core. One cannot perceive the transparent concept of **Allegiant** going through the motions without looking at this anemic actioner as a convenient means to bridge the upcoming remaining installments to protect its promising box office clout. So for those looking forward to **Ascendant** please hold your horses because this is what **Allegiant** strives for…to make one salivate over the next due edition to this tiring movie series.
Sure, **The Divergent Series–Allegiant** and perhaps **Ascendant** will offer more of the same and if this is something that its avid fans do not mind then fine…knock yourselves out to your heart’s redundant content.

If you are a fan of the books…
I won’t bore you with another detailed review of “Allegiant” It’s been well covered already but I will say that if you are a fan of the books…
No need to freak out! Was “Allegiant” the movie perfect? No. Not by a long shot. It obliterated and basically stripped many of the complex and more interesting layers that brought the characters body and soul in the book. We were left with a very skeletal, fractured and less interesting story. The movie did veer from the original work quite a bit but the substance of the story was still there…it wasn’t lost. We still get the point of what the purpose of the experiment cities were designed for. We get the struggle for power and the fight for humanity to fight for its survival against what seems like insurmountable odds. We get the theme of loyalty and family, ambition and greed vs sacrifice and selflessness. All the elements are there.
Was I annoyed that this movie is part 1 of 2? Not really. I look forward to seeing how the writers and director will adjust the story. Many fans were unhappy with the ending of the book anyway and would like to see it fixed. We’ll have to wait and see if the powers that be stick to Veronica Roth’s vision or create an alternate. But really, there is no need to feel disappointed or distraught. It is after all an adaptation!
Theo James as Four was awesome, though I felt his character wasn’t given much substance in this flick, still he was fun to watch. Bill Skarsgard who played Matthew was a nice surprise. I loved every scene he was in and Miles Teller stole the show as the always self-serving jerk, Peter. We didn’t get much from Zoe Kravitz and Maggie Q was great as Tori. Shailene Woodley was OK. She could only work with what she was given. But the fellas carried this movie from beginning to end. Even Jeff Daniels had his moments.
Overall, I thought it was entertaining. Not perfect but I give it a pass.
some more explanation
Jeanine is dead. Evelyn (Naomi Watts) is putting her followers on show trials and bans escaping Chicago. Johanna (Octavia Spencer) starts organizing an opposition. Tris (Shailene Woodley) breaks out her brother Caleb with the help of Four (Theo James). Peter (Miles Teller) forces his way onto their escape plan. They are joined by Christina but Tori is killed. Outside of Chicago, they find forces under David (Jeff Daniels) who is conducting the experiment to ‘fix’ human genes.
I don’t read the books. I’m not a big fan of the first two movies. I don’t believe in the world being built by the franchise. It never made sense to me. In this sequel, the world is expanding and an explanation is presented. While this world is still problematic, it finally makes some internal logic. It’s still dumb. I do like Woodley and she has the charisma to lead. This is not a favorite franchise to start and it’s losing even more steam.
