Like many other adaptations of Young Adult novel series (Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Twilight), the plan was to split the last book in the series ('Allegiant') into two films, with this movie basically covering the first half, and Allegiant: Part II (2017) covering the rest. However, due to negative reviews and a disappointing box office result, it was decided to turn Ascendant into a TV movie instead, to be followed by a spin-off TV series. Shailene Woodley, Theo James and Miles Teller subsequently pulled out of the project. See more »

I enjoyed the hell out of this film. It had me constantly engaged and interested in the story. I like the conflict between the characters, but glad they didn't make it dramatic. My biggest problem is there are such big ideas in this movie, they needed more time to develop some of them. A few scenes here to flesh out the conflict more. I am pretty sure they didn't do it because they have to follow the currently trend right now, mindless action set pieces with very little story. I appreciate the writers and director trying to accomplish something bigger, but there were still some missing parts. I still enjoyed the movie a lot and appreciate the effort.
