Katniss Everdeen is in District 13 after she shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta and a nation moved by her courage.
Katniss Everdeen voluntarily takes her younger sister's place in the Hunger Games: a televised competition in which two teenagers from each of the twelve Districts of Panem are chosen at random to fight to the death.
As she searches for allies and answers in the wake of the uprising, Tris and Four are on the run. Being hunted by Jeanine Matthews, the leader of the Erudite faction, Tris and Four will race against time as they try to figure out what Abnegation sacrificed their lives to protect, and why the Erudite leaders will do anything to stop them. Haunted by her past choices but desperate to protect the ones she loves, Tris faces one impossible challenge after another as she unlocks the truth about the past and ultimately the future of her world.
Unlike the first film where the firearms used by the factions were mostly non-firing props in this film they use real weapons. Among them are the Chiappa Rhino revolver and the Kriss Vector carbine and SMG (albeit concealed in futuristic looking shells). See more »
During the second day that Tris is going through the simulation, Jeanine is briefly seen wearing the dress she was wearing the day before, the scene cuts to another simulation, and once it cuts back, she's wearing a different dress. See more »
Peace. Long ago, before the Founders established this great city of ours, that word was all but meaningless. An ideal as elusive as a dream. Now, 200 years later, we are, all of us, living proof that peace is indeed attainable. The reason for this is, of course, our Faction System. Erudite, Dauntless, Amity, Candor, Abnegation. In dividing people according to personality and aptitude, we've created a society in which each faction plays a critical role in maintaining the social ...

It's a standard Science Fiction with no much sense where there is suspense, thriller, getaways and pursuits , frenetic action , struggles , explosions , violence and enough characterization . Dealing with a girl who is escaping with his fiance and brother from the enemy, while unleashing new secrets about her family's past , hers parents , Tony Goodwyn- Ashley Judd, and her mysterious Divergence . It is a very loose rendition of Veronica Roth's novel, that packs a vastly different screenplay , unlike the first movie . It takes parts of a successful trilogy , in the films "Insurgent" is the sequel to "Divergent" and is followed by "Allegiant" with Allegiant -part 2 being called "Ascendant". Whereas there are only actually 3 books in the trilogy. Shailene Whooley gives an acceptable acting as the brave teen who is haunted by her past and takes desperate , risked choices to protect the ones she loves , as well as she must confront her inner demons . Support cast is frankly excellent such as : Ansel Elgort , Jai Courtney , Miles Teller, Zoë Kravitz , Ray Stevenson , Kate Wislet , Naomi Watts , Ben Lloyd-Hughes , Cynthia Barrett , Ashley Judd , Tony Goldwyn and Octavia Spencer .
The picture contains a colorful and brilliant cinematography by Florian Ballhaus , it was mostly filmed in Atlanta instead of Chicago and being the first film in the "Divergent" series to be released in 3D . As well as a thrilling and adjusted to action musical score by Joseph Trapanese . The motion picture was well directed by Robert Schwenke , though Neil Burger was meant to direct this film, but couldn't due to scheduling conflicts with post-production on Divergente (2014). Robert Schewenke has directed a few but successful films such as : The Time Traveler's Wife ,Tattoo , Flightplan , Allegiant and his last one made in Germany : The captain .
