In this one you can see more of the relationships building or being torn apart. A lot of the truths are revealed. Enemies become allies and allies enemies. "Faction before blood" really hold true on this one until the very end when it is realized what's really going on.

Great sequel, from Divergent to Insurgent. The action quickens in the 2nd half with nice special effects that led up to a wonderful closure. No wonder it attracted heavy weights like Kate Winslet, Naomi Watts, Maggie Q and Ashley Judd as supporting actresses.

Hollywood. There just has to be sex. Other than having two Abnegation-raised people groping each other, this was pretty good--at least it didn't ruin the book's basic story. If one hasn't read and loved the books, this would probably be a very good movie.

Not as good as the first, but still entertaining enough. Special effects is much snazzier than the first. Naomi Watts, although great in many films, is terribly miscast on this one. POSSIBLE SPOILER: Funny that the end feels very much like The Maze Runner, and The Giver. Hollywood imagination is converging on these teen targeted movies.

Worse than the first movie. It was filled with plot holes and annoying characters. The special effects were quite good. Maybe the book is better, hopefully this would be the last movie in the series.

Evelyn: We're on the same side, Tris. I'm factionless because I don't fit in any one faction. And you're Divergent because you belong to too many. But we are both a threat to Jeanine. My people are ready for war if that's what it takes.

[Four, Caleb, Tris, and Peter are assembled in Joanna's office, after Tris tried to slice and dice Peter in a fight over something he said about her parents. Joanna reminds them that the terms of their sanctuary at Amity included nonviolence. She thinks their presence is disruptive, and thinks it's time that they left.]

Four: "Look, Joanna. We need a little more time. I need to find out where the rest of the Dauntless are, then we can leave."

Joanna: "And then what? Attack Erudite? I will NOT be a party to violence."

Four: "No one's asking you to. We just need a few more days."

Joanna: [to the assembled group] "One."

Tris: "One, what?"

Joanna: [to Tris] "One more chance. ...You see, to be Amity is to forgive, others, and yourself. You're hurting, Tris. And my heart goes out to you. I know what it's like to stand helpless while you lose the ones you love. But killing Jeanine is not going to bring your mother back. I know you're angry, but you're letting it consume you."
