This does not seem like a difficult task for the Dauntless, till one day Peter (Miles Teller) provokes Tris and they start to fight. Four seperates them, but Johanna is extremely dissatisfied. The quarrel upset the members of the Amity and they are no longer welcome here. Four talks her to give them one more chance, to let them stay hidden for some more days to plan their next steps.

After a little while, he sees that his sister is in danger, and doesn’t even move his fingers to help her. Is he shocked or is he a selfish pig? Factionless are too many and our heroes are just two.

-What is he to you?
-I am.
[small pause]

Evelyn (Naomi Watts), Four’s mother, is the Factionless leader. Abnegation help her fake her death to escape from her abusive husband. But she left her 6-year-old son Tobias behind, and let him believe that she was dead. Now she is about to attack Jeanine and overthrow the regime controlled by Erudite. She asks her son and Tris to help her in her plans. Tris wants an alliance against the common enemy, but Four does not trust her. And he has a point.

This power game has many strong players and nothing is certain. Tris wants to become a tyrannicide. Jeanine, has found a box with a message from the Founders of the Factions System. She is sure, that if she opens it she will be able to defeat all her opponents and kill all Divergents. But the box is locked and only a Divergent could open it, after passing with 100% success five simulations: one for each faction!

Our impressions and movie review:
Insurgent is an AMAZING movie! Screen writers Brian Duffield, Akiva Goldsman, Mark Bomback did a great job, based of course in the best seller book Insurgent by Veronica Roth. Robert Schwentke succeeds Neil Burger in directing, and he does so pretty good. He will direct “Allegiant”, the movie based on the third book of the “Divergent” trilogy.

Insurgent castShailene Woodley is very good in her role and Theo James is perfect. His performance and his reaction while under the Truth serum, the test for all Candor initiates, makes the difference. Very good is also Miles Teller performance, who has a demanding supporting role, and succeeds in showing different aspects of his talent. Naomi Watts was good, like Octavia Spencer and the ever charming Kate Winslet. We must make special mention for Daniel Dae Kim, Candor leader, who deserves to play protagonistic roles.

Insurgent” will be released in greek movie theaters at March 19th, 2015, distributed by Odeon and you have to see the 3D edition. If I haven’t told you before, this movie is… AMAZING!
