This movie was very entertaining. I absolutely loved Divergent when it first came out. I was not familiar with it but I loved it and how it was all about girl power. This movie didn’t have the oomph that the first one had. It was still good and entertaining. It wasn’t as intense as the first movie was. Or maybe I just knew what to expect this time? I’m not sure. But I had a nice time with my husband on a date night watching it. It took me away from my own problems for a few hours which I had desperately needed this week. I am always amazed when people can come up with a different premise for a movie. This definitely met that impressive factor for me. So if I was to rate it from A to F I’d give it a good solid B. Check out the trailer!

About The Divergent Series: Insurgent
After being exposed as Divergents—people who don’t fit neatly into one of the five societal classifications or “factions”—Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James) find themselves on the run from Jeanine (Kate Winslet), the power-hungry leader of the Erudite faction. As the traitorous Dauntless troops under Jeanine’s command prowl the ruins of dystopian Chicago rounding up Divergents, Tris and Four traverse the city hoping to find allies among the Amity, Candor, Abnegation and Dauntless factions—as well as the rebellious and impoverished mass of Factionless. Although heartsick and guilt-ridden over the violent deaths of her family and friends, Tris tries to uncover the secret her parents sacrificed their lives to protect – the very secret that explains why Jeanine will stop at nothing to capture her. Desperate to avoid causing pain to any more of her loved ones, Tris faces her darkest fears in a series of near-impossible challenges as she seeks to unlock the truth about the past, and ultimately the future, of their world.
