Katniss Everdeen voluntarily takes her younger sister's place in the Hunger Games: a televised competition in which two teenagers from each of the twelve Districts of Panem are chosen at random to fight to the death.

The character of Caleb has a very unorthodox style of running in the movie, particularly near the start. This was a choice made by actor Ansel Elgort who stated that, "Shailene Woodley and Theo James are superheroes. Caleb is not. Caleb represents the intellectual side, the guy who isn't physical. And I wanted to make sure that was on screen. I wanted to make sure that made sense." See more »

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.

"Insurgent" continues shortly after the events of the first movie, having Jeanine finding a box that can only be opened by a Divergent and searching for all the Divergents (Which was previously shown in the trailers.) and also discovering that not all Divergents are equal as some Divergents are better than the others and obviously, the latter was Tris.
Honestly, I was surprised that I liked this better than the first since I knew that I had lower my expectations for it because I knew that the first one was horrible and also because I had no faith for the new director "Robert Schwentke" who's known for R.I.P.D which was absolutely awful. This movie had good moments, but the movie was mostly a bore. The cinematography was okay, acting was good but wasn't enough to feel attached to the characters. (I didn't feel like connecting with the protagonist.)
VERDICT: I'm not saying that I didn't like the movie, but it really could've been better. I didn't like it that MUCH because everything was too surreal. Everything was too coincidental.
