Managing to make a name for itself amongst the waves of young adult films, Allegiant, the 3rd film in the Divergent saga, looks to take things to a whole new world in this brand new trailer. Venturing beyond the wall in an attempt to learn the truth about the faction system, Tris and her companions find themselves neck deep in a conspiracy they hadn’t planned on being a part of.
Picking up from when we last saw Tris and Four, everyone has learned the true importance of the Divergent and has decided to travel outside of the confines of their factions. Looking to adopt a more science fiction tone, Allegiant seems to up the action anti while introducing a more political spin on the series.
I liked the first film but thought Insurgent dropped the ball in a major way. Stripping away everything that made the first Divergent stand out, the second film felt like a quick cash in on a name people recognize. If Allegiant can balance the action and thematic importance the novels managed, I have high hopes for the film. I’ll need to see more but judging from the trailer, I don’t hate it.
