Arshad and I are continuing our love of YA franchises with another full review of the  second installment of Divergent which is Insurgent. I had not read any of the books and Arshad is a huge fan of the novels and so it was incredibly surprising that our opinion of Insurgent were exactly the same: not good! Not only do we rip Insurgent another asshole but we dive in even deeper to discuss the core of the film's problems. The whole crew is back along with a few special and notable faces that really elevates the film's status to almost The Hunger Games level but obviously not quite. And what THG excel at, the Divergent series sadly falter under the plain filmmaking 101: develop your characters. As much as I would like to think that I won't continue supporting this franchise, Shailene Woodley's impeccable and ability to cry a single fat tear endlessly impresses me. And for that, I will most likely watch the series till the end.
