Allegiant: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

Tris and Four (Shailene Woodley and Theo James) planned their escape and climbed over the forbidden wall to learn more about the other side. Together with Tris' brother Caleb (Ansel Eglort), Christina (Zoe Kravitz) and Peter (Miles Teller) they travel to the radio active wasteland and find out that there are a lot more secrets hidden over those giant walls. However, things aren't that simple like in what they imagine as David (Jeff Daniels), the leader of the high-tech bureau got some other plans on his mind.

Allegiant marks the third film of the Divergent franchise. Unlike The Hunger Games series, the film struggles to make the core of story interesting. It's a bit confusing (even we did see the first two films) and  problematic at times. There are still some crazy moments to make the film a bit exciting but can't sustain the energy because of the inconsistent CG effects they want to sell to its viewers. It looked sloppy at some parts but still has some decent scenes that transport the audience into an extraordinary setting.
Shailene Woodley and Theo James keeps the same amount of energy like what they did on the previous installments. They are both likable stars but must push harder to keep the film steady as it runs through the final lap of the franchise. Miles Teller is perfectly cast as Peter, but he needs more exposure as he is one of the film's saving grace. Jeff Daniels is a worthy addition while Octavia Spencer and Naomi Watts are just wasted running from the sidelines.

Overall, Allegiant is losing its steam before reaching their finale. It would be a bigger problem if they couldn't close this series decently. They need to bounce back and make the next one spectacular as possible, or else they would disappoint fans who are looking forward to see the final chapter in 2017.
