‘Beatrice Prior must confront her inner demons and continue her fight against a powerful alliance which threatens to tear her society apart with the help from others on her side.’ (IMDb) (by Robert Schwentke, 119 min.)
I’m a huge fan of the books of Veronica Roth. And I mean a huge fan. I couldn’t put the books down, so I hoped the movies would be as fun to watch as they were to read.
With the first film I was excited to see it and I liked it good enough. But I was a bit scared of Insurgent. I was pleasantly surprised though. It was action-packed, full of plot points that I didn’t remember. (I read the books a long time ago, and don’t remember a lot of them)
The only thing I was a bit scared of, was the fact that Shailene Woodley chose to keep her short hair for this movie. If you read the books, you know Tris has long hair. So when I read that she wanted to keep her short hair, I didn’t mind it, but I was scared because they told that they would let her cut her hair in the first scene… So the first shots were with a wig and I was a bit scared that it would look fake. And it did look a bit strange, but the short hair didn’t bother me at all.
Overall it was an ok film. I still prefer the books over the movies, but I’ll definitely watch the next two. (why two, though?)
3,5 out of 5 stars.
