Plot- After the earth-shattering revelations of Insurgent, Tris must escape with Four beyond the wall that encircles Chicago to finally discover the shocking truth of what lies behind it.
Review- A quick tip to any directors out there, if the effects in your mid-budget 2016 released film look inferior to those of 1982 classic Tron- then please redo them because that’s the kind of thing that can take an audience of out of a film.
Also, if your idea of showing that people are being observed via some incredibly invasive and yet completely undetectable camera network is to fill the screen with blinking squares that give the audience a headache then please head back to the drawing board.
Please ensure that the audience feels that something was accomplished during the film. Now, I know that this is going to be difficult in something that is basically The Maze Runner: Scorch Trials with a few tweaks here and there but please try. This film feels like one massive exposition dump with a few ‘action’ sequences stuffed in here and there to wake the audience up.
Oh, if you are going to have a character who basically does nothing but spout confusing and uninteresting exposition then might I recommend Dan Akroyd instead of a (visibly bored) Jeff Daniels? Oh, and actually putting people with some form of chemistry/interest in their lines/world that they are supposed to be inhabiting in the lead roles might help.
Finally, if your franchise is as forgettable as this, please don’t have the finale full of mind-wiping gas, the jokes just sort of write themselves.

My Score- Poor

⇒ I shouldn’t be surprised that our elected officials want to indoctrinate the next flock of voters to be even more blindly allegiant.
