Feature Play: Divergent: Allegiant
Divergent: Allegiant has been riding on the coattails of the successful transition of sister YA series turned movie franchise Hunger Games. Although it hasn’t been as successful as Hunger Games, it still managed to carve out a nice little niche for itself in the movie market.
With the third installment of the movie franchise, we see Tris and the others come face to face with the revelations that were brought to light after the war and destruction of their dystopian world.
These new truths aren’t all they’re initially cracked up to be and what was once just a war within their world has become something bigger.
The two hour affair continues to take a shift between these action sequences with dialogue heavy parts, which is widely reminiscent of the Veronica Roth book series’ style.
This adaptation continues to grow from its predecessors. The action sequences grip you and the trials that both Tris and Four’s characters must deal with pull at your heart. It’s been a privilege to see the series grow into its own entity.
Allegiant isn’t the end of the series but it is taking the series on a stark shift. It sets up for the series’s biggest fireworks to come when the final installment (Divergent: Ascendant) releases in 2017.
