The Divergent Series: Allegiant Movie Review:

So Allegiant is not the end, just in case you think it is. And it is way better than the novel, just in case you don’t think it’s not exactly great. Tris and Four, my favourite couple, I mean they are the only couple inside, can’t seem to keep their hands off each other whenever they are alone or even in the midst of an intense fight.
allegiant-stillsStill, the chemistry between them is still strong as ever. I read the novel years ago when Divergent was out, and Allegiant was the book that I had difficulty picturing the scenario, so I’m definitely glad the film did not turn out that way.
Allegiant Movie StillPreviously a strong character who know what she wanted, Tris now feels like a weak and trusting girl when she reached over to the other side of the world. The focus shifted from the individuals to the technological advancement on the other side which somehow felt like another class segregation, this time pure versus damaged. 

Allegiant-Movie-2016There were a lot of playing with cool CGI, but most movie-goers should able to identify the scenes with green screens pretty easily. Aside from the impressive wall-scaling escape scene, as well as the protective floating bubble and the posh Providence, the rest of the effects were pretty lousy.

Allegiant-5-Miles-TellerLuckily, there’s still Miles Teller as Peter, the ass who will keep backstabbing Tris and Four. While I couldn’t wait for him to die, you couldn’t help but laugh at his arrogance. 

Catch the film if you have watched the previous two installments, otherwise, you won’t understand the plot at all.

Do You Know?

keiynan-lonsdale-aacta-awards allegiant movie stills-09Like many movie franchise such as “Harry Potter”, “The Twilight Saga” and “The Hunger Games”, Allegiant is the fourth movie to be split into two parts. Instead of being named Allegiant: Parts 1 & 2, the third installment (focusing on the first half of the book) is called Allegiant, while the fourth film will be called Ascendant, due out in the summer of 2017.

  1. Jason Panuelos says:

    The Divergent series has always been sort of a question mark in terms of the plot so it’s understandable why the movie isn’t as great as it’s made out to be. A lot of people still love it tho! 😀

  2. amayachika says:

    Me and my two tweens love this movie. This is a very good movie and it has a good reviews.

  3. Pooja Kawatra Gupta says:

    I have not yet followed their series so a bit of clueless to relate it.

  4. ahuosee says:

    I have heard of the series but never watched any. I read a review that the third series was not all that worth watching. After reading this, maybe i will give the series a try

  5. Rosey says:

    I have heard of it, but not seen any of it or read about it until now. I’m pretty slow about catching up with trends but I get there eventually. 🙂

  6. thezafragroup says:

    I’ve definitely heard about this series but I’ve never watched a single movie. I think I’ll give this a try. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Shivansh Chaudhary says:

    I didnt know the part about he series being split!

  8. Lisa Chow says:

    Phew, thank goodness it’s not a spoiler 😛
    Have yet to watch the latest movies, haven’t even managed to watch Zootopia yet 🙁

  9. Mia Foo says:

    i wonder if i can catch on with this without having watched the 2nd instalment? somehow i just missed insurgent without remembering why i didn’t watch that!

  10. Sunshine Kelly says:

    This movie is not bad but not great, I might give it a miss because there are a lot of blockbuster movies these 2 months.

  11. RainbowDiaries Website says:

    I am a big fan of the series and have watched all the parts the day they released. I liked Allegiant as well but must say Divergent was the best

  12. 3xhcch says:

    You have already read my thoughts about this film. Average when compared to the first two films, especially the excellent “Insurgent”. However, we still watch to complete the story. – Fred

  13. Fred Erick (FredExperience) says:

    Though I am into dystopian themed movies, I did not become a fan of this series. I have watched the first and I was really disappointed. Never watched the second one and I don’t know if I will watch this. But looks like there are already a lot happening in the third installment. Maybe I will give it a try once it is available online.

  14. Jeypi Kyu says:

    woah! spoiler alert.. i was actually planning to watch this.. haha anyways thanks for the review.. i now have an idea on what it is.. 🙂

  15. Franc Ramon says:

    They have really created a sci-fi world with the divergent series. It looks so interesting to follow their stories and watch how things work in their world.

  16. Elizabeth O. says:

    I’ve only seen the first movie. I would like to catch up and see the second one and this one as well. Their story seems so interesting. I never had the chance to read the books though.

  17. phyliciamarie says:

    I loved the movie, and I also read the book. I was soo glad with how they developed the story, and I hope they keep building up Tris’s strong character again!!!

  18. firsttimetravel says:

    I’ve watched the first two installment so i want to see how this third movie turns out. I haven’t read the books though. Maybe it’s time for me to read them.

  19. Suzanne Rudge says:

    I am a huge fan of the Divergent book series and really enjoyed the movies so far. I can’t wait to see Allegiant, but I have to wait for my daughter.

Tell me what you think!
