Movie Review:

   One choice can destroy you.
   When I first saw Divergent as a movie I thought it did pretty good for a book adaption, though it still wasn't one of my favourites by far. They had already announced a sequel movie and the third book being split up into two more movies. I thought that it'd be okay, that they could probably manage a great series but then I saw the Insurgent trailer. I just knew the movie was going to be a pain in the butt.
   When opening week rolled around all I heard was bad reviews of the movie, knowing that it was everyone else's own personal reviews I still wanted to see the movie. It wasn't till a month after it released that I finally did. 
   Just like the first movie, I wasn't a huge fan of Insurgent. At this point I think they just took the main ideas from the book and left it at that, just like what they did with The Vampire Diaries TV show. The movie had facts messed up, and actually dropped a lot. It's understandable that things are dropped when making a movie, but this time important things were dropped that were significant to the plot and the last book's plot as well. 
   Besides the points where they messed up, they actually did some things right. Like FINALLY having Uriah in the movie, or with the message from the founders. I was really glad to see Uriah, as he was my favourite character in the series but I still wished he got more screen time considering he was supposed to be a main character in the book.
   Insurgent was a seemly enjoyable movie to see, it would have probably been a better movie to see if you hadn't read the book to know what they did wrong but overall still enjoyable.  

Overall Rating:

Favourite Scene:

   I didn't have any particular scene that I liked above the rest, I really just enjoyed every scene with Uriah in it. He was always my favourite character in the books. 

Favourite Quote:
