The Divergent Series: Allegiant (2016) – An Entertaining Finale To the YA Adaptations

March 23, 2016 2 Comments

Afternoon, my fellow book loving friends and readers! Today, I have a new review to share with you all. On Monday (of this week), I went to my closest theater and saw Allegiant. Really, this is my chance to actually give a shout-out to my mother (though she never reads these scribbles) and thank her bunches for going with me to see Allegiant. You see, I’ve not seen any of the Divergent films in theaters because, well, everyone I know in my life thinks I’m nuts for liking dystopian (all the more reason I’m thankful for all of you – I can FANGIRL!). But this time, Mom and I did decide to go see this one because a.) school is out this week which means our theater ACTUALLY shows afternoon films, and b.) who doesn’t enjoy a mother-daughter day out?

Human being cannot be categorized int his way it doesn’t work. Maybe it’s time to start embracing people instead of dividing them into groups. – The Divergent Series: Allegiant

But back on point which is Allegiant. So, yes. I know there is boatloads of controversy surrounding this one because it’s not what it should be in relation to the novel. You see, I don’t care a whit about this since I’ve not read the book. Therefore, my review is based off the film as an individual and by that, I actually loved this installment. The romance, the cool gadgets, the acting (Peter’s snarky tude though!), and just, in general, it’s epicness. Oh yeah, and that EPIC kick-butt rescue scene with Christina and Tris? Pretty cool.

The Divergent Series: Allegiant – A Dystopian World of Rebels and Romance  

The first half of the much buzzed about conclusion of the Divergent Series opened this past week, and with it, more controversy and disappointment followed. As nearly all YA trilogies are wont to do, the final novel (also titled Allegiant) in Veronica Roth’s popular series was broken into two parts. Only instead of coupling with its title the ever popular “part 1” and “part 2” title sequence, this series titled its final film (set to arrive in theaters June 2017), Ascendant. In Allegiant, the story of a very unusual girl who leads a rebellion picks right back up where Insurgent left off. Continue Reading on Silver Petticoat ➔

    I'm glad to hear you enjoyed this one. I haven't seen it yet, but I'm looking forward to it. I haven't read the books either so maybe that's a good thing. :D

      Maybe! I know most fans didn't care for this one, but well, I do love Tris and Four. Plus I didn't know anything different in terms of the book-to-screen changes. :D Hope you enjoy, Rachel!
