This is the first film in the Divergent Series not to feature a song by M83. See more »
Periodically, we see beyond the wall, where it appears to be heavily forested just beyond the wall and a distance beyond. However, once past the wall, the group starts with a cliff down and then it is completely barren, with completely different weather conditions (frequent red rain). See more »
If you had enough to save one person, and your choice was between a healthy child and a sick old man, who would you choose?
I wouldn't choose.
Good! Now they're both dead.

The worst of the Divergent series to date, in Allegiant we finally see what lies beyond the walls which encircle Chicago. Answer: 120 minutes of utter tedium. We follow our protagonists- doe-eyed Tris and perpetually dull Four- through the wastelands and into the hands of sinisterly-titled Bureau of Genetic Welfare, led by Jeff Daniels' character David.
What follows is multiple occasions of Tris being called up to David's office for meetings- like an episode of The Apprentice- but instead of getting fired she exchanges some of the dullest exposition dialogue heard in the cinema so far this year. The set of David's office is so over-designed and green-screened to the point that it just became a distraction.
There are large swathes of the film's running time where nothing seems to happen, no surprise considering this is the first of two parts of what is one book. The decision to split the final novel into two is for reasons which can really only be described as monetary, a gamble which appears not to have paid off judging by the box office takings. Miles Teller's character attempts to inject some comic relief into the proceedings but even his jokes fall flat. An absolutely turgid affair.
