When Tris is in Candor HQ while it is being attacked, she is shot at by multiple armed assailants and dashes through a door. The bullets from the guns punch through the thick metal doors. A few moments later, the men open fire on the members of Candor. Tris inspects the wounds and notices that small objects are now embedded in their skin with absolutely no skin irritation or mark. The men did not reload or change weapons at any time. See more »

Jeanine: Peace. Long ago, before the Founders established this great city of ours, that word was all but meaningless. An ideal as elusive as a dream. Now, 200 years later, we are, all of us, living proof that peace is indeed attainable. The reason for this is, of course, our Faction System. Erudite, Dauntless, Amity, Candor, Abnegation.

Different from its' predecessor, "Insurgent" is faster and more action-packed.
21 March 2015 | by kshiradSee all my reviews

"The Divergent Series" has always been compared to the likes of "Hunger Games" and "Harry Potter". While the concept is a bit alike, the story got its' own backbone. Continuing "Divergent", "Insurgent" isn't really like its' predecessor. It's faster and more action-packed than ever, filled with thrilling chases and inventive visuals.

"Insurgent" follows Tris (Shailene Woodley), Four (Theo James), and the others on the run from Jeanine Matthews (Kate Winslet) who is hunting divergents (you'll need to see the first one to know more). There's a plot includes a mystery box that only divergents could open it, through simulations.

Doubting it would be good, it turns out to be better than expected. Not only the pace is faster, the stakes are higher and it creates a darker tone. The actors were as fine as the first part. It is the change of director that marked an improvement from the last one. Robert Shwenke gives more tension to the audience with enough visuals that could make your heart pound.

Not saying the movie doesn't have any flaws. There's a bit of problem with the script which is either the movie's strength and weakness. Some scenes are not very well executed. But, that doesn't really matter to the experience as a whole. Thankfully, the action scenes overcome its' flaws.

If you love "Divergent", there's no doubt you're going to love this. Overall, a satisfying experience.
