Allegiant is the third installment in the Divergent series, and what was supposed to be Part I of II (more on that in a minute).
With Janine dead, the Factionless lead by Four’s mother and the Allegiant take over what we now know to be Chicago, killing all those that had betrayed the others.
So we see our main characters (Tris, Four, Caleb, Peter, etc.) head out over the wall to explore what lays out in the real world.
After getting picked up by the government, now run by a council, our team of heroes are put to task. Everything from defriending the fringe outside Chicago, surveillance and reporting of the going-ons within the city, or even exploring the Divergent’s DNA to figure out the perfect genes.
Which side will Tris and the gang end up on? Factionless…Allegiant…or the Government?
When The Hunger Games did their two-part finale it was done very poorly with Part I feeling like a giant ad for Part II…and Part II just very lackluster.
In this case it is the polar opposite.
Allegiant is good enough to be a standalone movie, keeping viewers engaged throughout, and not seeming like it’s missing details just to get you to come back for the next one.
Speaking of the next one, Ascendant, in recent weeks it has come to light that it will possibly be released as a TV movie, and then spun-off into a TV show.
Allegiant gets a decent 8 out of 10.
