I’m a sucker for this sort of film but I kind of doubt it’s going to be any good. But Lionsgate is feeling pretty good about it, they’re already working on the sequel (Insurgent).
Given the way this film looks, I’d sure be waiting to see if it made any money. Granted there do seem to be some themes that would resonate with today’s teens and young adults, such as non-conformance. And the books by Veronica Roth on which this film is based are very popular so who knows what will happen. And I’m hoping the film might be okay. You never know, stranger things have happened.
