Surprisingly I’ve really come to enjoy the Divergent series. So far two for two, I’ve liked them. The sequel was equally as good as the first, if not better. Insurgent was a great middle piece, establishing the story and creating a great foundation for what is to come. The twists were great and the ending was for most, unexpected. As someone who hasn’t read the novels, It’ll be interesting to see where it goes.
Familiar faces are back in Allegiant such as Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Miles Teller, Zoë Kravitz, Maggie Q, Ansel Elgort, Octavia Spencer with Aussie actors Keiynan Lonsdale and Naomi Watts. Jeff Daniels joins the cast, to challenge our heroes in the fight for humanity.
As another series veers closer to an end, I’m really hoping it sets up the final film properly, keeping the audiences attention, as a penultimate film. That the story stays true to the characters, or at least the power of the characters we’ve come to somewhat admire. Like the strong, confident Tris, who fights for what she believes in, no matter what. It’s been a wild ride, I feel the writers have done justice to great storytelling and really respected the audience.
