Beatrice Prior must confront her inner demons and continue her fight against a powerful alliance which threatens to tear her society apart.Wikipedia
Insurgent is not unbearable. A one-time watch (at least for the Divergent fans) may be the maximum you’d want to give for this one.
...the only reasons to watch Insurgent are the very few decent performances and of course, the flashy special effects.
Think of this as an inbetweener you have to get through to get to the final two films in this series. Tedious, but necessary.
To even understand the basics of this film, you need to be familiar with either the book or the first film otherwise you’ll be as lost as a man who has discovered that he has lost his wallet. The concept of various factions, depending on their skills was quite fascinating in Divergent but there isn’t much originality here. Watch it only if you are a fan of the series.
Whatever little dose of action is present is rendered in cheap looking CGI, which hammers the final nail in the coffin. It remains to be seen if a third instalment arrives next year because as a second film in a series, 'Insurgent' is a dud.
If you are a huge fan of the series or Shailene Woodley, then you should probably catch this sci-fi thriller over the weekend. Otherwise its advisable to re-read the second book again.
