Overall Review: Allegiant is the third movie in The Divergent Series franchise.The film continues exactly from the end of Insurgent to a journey that Tris and Four take to discover what is beyond the wall that surrounds Chicago,an experiment city. Naomi Watts reprises her role as Evelyn and pretty much follows the same unfortunate path that Jeanine did as leader of the dystopian Chicago. Four and Tris (Shailene Woodley), lead a small group of survivors into the outside world which was teased at the end of the last film. Movie is good & succeeds to keep it interesting and dynamic for a good amount of times. Once again, Shailene Woddley is bringing the best performance through the whole movie. Film still feels very much a twilight, hunger games style teen movie. THE drones in the film are the most intriguing and interesting parts. Overall, its a pretty good installment to the franchise.
Performance & Technical Review: Theo James continues to be a pleasant surprise and deliver his performance as Four. Woodley is solid as she usually is and so is Jeff Daniels and Naomi Watts. Four and Tris chemistry is better in this one. Special effects were good though not incredible. Movie boasts some well-crafted action scenes. The designs of Providence and the Bureau are absolutely stunning, some of the sets even have some sort of symbolism. The visuals are great with Providence being the film’s high point in special effects. The only downside of the movie was the script; little messy but director somehow balanced it.
PDF Verdict: With this third installment, Robert Schwentke takes us on a rhythmic episode with good surprises. Allegiant is an enjoyable film with a lot of action and satisfying scenes and it remains in the continuity of what has been built and promises a beautiful finale name: Ascendant.
