Now on a run from Jeanine and a rest of a power-hungry Erudites, Tris and Four hunt for allies and answers in a hull of Chicago.

“I know this doesn’t make any sense,” insists Shailene Woodley’s Tris

at a pivotal impulse in The Divergent Series: Insurgent.

That view flattering many sums adult this sluggish supplement (* ½ out of four; rated PG-13; opens Friday nationwide). This second installment, formed on Veronica Roth’s array of YA novels, feels cobbled together and reduction focused than 2014’s Divergent, and lacks tragedy and excitement.

Tris and Four (Theo James), a post-apocalyptic lovebirds, are fugitives from a restrictive — and ungrammatical — amicable complement that sorts adults into 5 factions, formed on tellurian virtues: Amity, Abnegation, Candor, Erudite and Dauntless.

They contingency censor out since they’ve been unprotected as divergent, that means they don’t fit precisely into any one category. Divergents are seen as fraudulent members to be destroyed, by megalomaniacal personality Jeanine (Kate Winslet). But, it’s transparent she’s threatened by these modernized and released folks.

Pursued by a icy Jeanine, who is a fixed member of a Erudite group, Tris and Four hardly evade her henchmen. Along their shun trail a integrate endures a unpleasant law serum, a hazardous sight float and copiousness of chases and fights. Tris, whose relatives (Ashley Judd and Tony Goldwyn) died in a initial movie, is spooky by thoughts that she’s dangerous since everybody around her dies. Her condemned mental state certainly accounts for her grave countenance via many of a movie. But everybody else looks miserable as good — even a pleasantly sorts who make adult Amity, overseen by a ever-patient Johanna (Octavia Spencer).

Where other dystopian sci-fi cinema are mired in exposition, this one could have used a bit some-more reason and logic. How does Tris’ hermit Caleb (Ansel Elgort) turn a serf of a immorality Jeanine overnight? And why? How can desirous Peter (Miles Teller) work his approach into Jeanine’s middle sanctum so quickly?

Tris contingency take partial in a accumulation of practical existence simulations, including one self-loathing practice in that she fights herself, with no clarity of tragedy whatsoever.

At slightest a hastily Four has Tris’ back. They hole adult in a subterraneous buliding of a rebel though bankrupt Factionless and accommodate adult with a conniving Evelyn (Naomi Watts).

Four professes his adore for Tris repeatedly, though their chemistry is reduction apparent than in a initial film.

Woodley and James seem merely to be going by a motions. Their ultra-seriousness, total with muted performances, supplement adult to a dull knowledge for viewers.
