Trailer Time: Insurgent Trailer #2 (2015)

I liked, didn’t love, Divergent.  It was a pretty good adaptation of the book, and it moved along at a good pace with some quality actors.  I’ve read all three books and Insurgent is where the series starts to go pear-shaped, in my opinion, before it meanders into the epic wasteland slog that was Allegiant (and that they’re splitting into two films is the dumbest split yet in this new franchise-extending trend).  I like Veronica Roth.  I think she’s a good writer and I’ll read her next stuff, but I don’t feel like this series was plotted past the first book.  When you compare it to Harry Potter or The Hunger Games books, its just not in the same league.  The first Insurgent teaser was….odd.  Perhaps this will be a case of the book being eclipsed by the movie.  Perhaps not.  Insurgent opens wide on March 20, 2015

  1. I’m afraid this gets a big “meh” from me… because that’s what I thought of the first one… I honestly thought it was plodding and you could easily skip the middle forty-five minutes of testing,testng, sexually-charged-longing-looks, testing, testing, snogging and go straight to act three without missing anything. (Sorry.)
