Review of Insurgent the movie


I just came back from seeing Insurgent. Once in a while, I see a movie, and the first thing I want to do is to tell everybody what I thought about it. So I decided to blog about it. I’m so glad I went to see this movie. I was feeling tired, and almost talked myself out of it. But as soon as the movie started, I was wide-awake. I think while I sat on the edge of my seat, my heart was beating fast during the entire movie. So much was happening so fast! This movie is a great sequel to Divergent. I loved Divergent and I loved Insurgent just as much. First of all, we got the badass heroine. Absolutely can’t go wrong with that. She’s tough as they come. But what I really enjoyed was watching her vulnerability. Tris has her fears, and her conscious is killing her.


Shailene Woodley plays her perfectly. I almost think that she may be one of the best actresses of her generation right now. Shailene is able to portray her weaknesses, her strengths, her fears, her guilt, and at the end, her finally forgiving herself. Let’s talk about Theo James for a minute. Again, a phenomenal actor. Well, his good looks don’t hurt either. But truly, he plays Tobias (Four) perfectly. I can’t imagine another actor playing that character.


The two of them sizzle on screen. Tobias by now has fallen hard for Tris and will do whatever it takes to protect her. When the truth serum is injected in him, he confesses that he has fallen in love with Tris. Sigh… And both of them together really can kick some ass. They take on the evil and the battle begins. I love movies like this. If you’re looking for some entertainment, a movie full of action, suspense, and some butt kicking scenes, this is a great movie. Oh, and let’s not forget the hot romance between these two.


“You die, I die.”
