Hello, Movie Buffs!
Insurgent is most fittingly the sequel to Divergent. Like with any sequel there is always going to be similarities and Insurgent stands on its own. In my personal opinion, Insurgent has separated itself from The Hunger Games franchise just a little bit more. Some viewers may say that Insurgent is similar to Mockingjay Part 1 and you can say that that is true, but it is still different in its own right.

Like I said in my post about Divergent, although this movie can be and will be compared to The Hunger Games it is still a great movie in its own right. Both book series were written beautifully by two amazing authors. Although both the films and the books have similar endings goals, the amount of emotion the characters display and the cinematography is substantially different.
All I ask is that if you are a Hunger Games fan that you keep an open mind when you watch this Insurgent. In terms of buying Insurgent it completely depends on what you think, and if you do buy it I can assure you that it is not a total waste, unless of course, you didn’t like the movie to start out with.

“I'm not brave, Mom. I pretend that I am. I want people to think that I am, but I'm not. I'm really, really scared and... Maybe we are, actually, what's wrong in this world. Divergent. I never wanted any of this. You and dad and Caleb and Four. I can't help but think that if I was normal. We would all still be together. Mom, I don't want to be Divergent anymore. I just want to feel safe again.”
– Beatrice ‘Tris’ Prior
