In all, Insurgent may work as a deafening, frivolous diversion for viewers who can ignore the flimsiness of its universe, plot, and characters.

Insurgent's convenient scanners affirm its heroine to be 100% Divergent, the most out of everyone, and that's good enough for the story. But it doesn't have to be good enough for the audience.

I appreciate the attempt to try to make this world -- an obliterated, totalitarian Chicago -- as watchable as possible. But there's too much to keep straight.

There's little substance and little depth, but Woodley, with her preternatural poise, offers a worthy simulation of drama.

Insurgent is far too long for the minimal plot it encapsulates, features little in the way of meaningful character development, and is riddled with instances of poorly conceived, contrived developments.
March 20, 2015
It's all a bit of an unengaging muddle, covered over with concrete grunge, clean white labs, and stagy special effects.

Maybe we are all getting Dystopia Fatigue, but I need more to care about if i'm going to wade into this level of despair.

The plot's a bit stretched out, but good performances and the series' impressive production value mean it's a serviceable stopgap before the real action of Allegiant.

If you're able to push aside the confused machinations of the larger plot during the scenes of flashy violence, you may be able to find a bit of enjoyment in Insurgent. Beyond that, there isn't much nice to say.

Insurgent seems to indicate that the studios are content to simply go through the genre motions with this one. Whatever promise was offered by the first film is largely gone, leaving the franchise to plod to the finish line.

Will I see them both? Probably. I'm a completist, so I want to see this storyline to its conclusion. Do I recommend that others embark upon the same journey? Probably not. I'm not that mean.

It's a step in the right direction, but I'm still waiting for the film to deliver on its promise.

Insurgent is the halfway mark of a series, and, despite the dazzle, it failed to deliver the excitement or intensity that the first film (however naïve) promised.
April 23, 2018
Sadly, the better-than-okay performances cannot salvage Insurgent from being dull beyond recognition.
April 11, 2018
All just a tad bland, predictable and yawn-inducing.
March 2, 2018
The romance in this movie is SO bad.

...despite being like some sort of Frankenstein's monster, made of different elements taken from superior stories, the movie never bored me. [Full review in Spanish]

There are no stakes and every problem encountered is resolved through a convenient device. They might as well have called it MacGuffin: The Movie.
August 24, 2017
Insurgent has no qualms about its use of violence, or seemingly, anything at all.
August 22, 2017
Of all the things in Insurgent-the second installment of the YA sci-fi action Divergent series-the lack of concern for Chicago winter is the most unbelievable.
