The third installment in ‘The Divergent Series’ sees the gang outside of Chicago for the first time, and it’s quite the revelation. Beyond the wall lies the Bureau Of Genetic Welfare, who aren’t all that great. Overseen by David (Jeff Daniels), they try to separate the genetically pure from the damaged.
Tris is more of a follower than a leader this time round, which is disappointing. And Four (Theo James) is left to uncover the dark truth for himself. Caleb (Ansel Elgort) saves this film with his underrated, witty one liners.
Overall? We liked, but we didn’t love. The visuals are great, and the futuristic aesthetic is present. (However there are some dodgy CGI sequences.) This narrative is slow developing, but we’re putting it down to this being based on one half of the original final book.
‘The Divergent Series: Allegiant’ is out now, are you ready?
