I’m talking about the movie where a slumming Academy Award winner plays the evil ruler like she’s a cross between Hillary Clinton and Frau Blucher from “Young Frankenstein.” I see where you’re confused; that would be Meryl Streep in “The Giver.” This is actually the movie where mankind’s hope for the future is hiding out in caves. Seriously? “The Host”? You saw that one?
I just checked: This movie is called “Insurgent.” No, “Insurgent.” It’s the sequel to “Divergent.”
It’s the one where — look, never mind.
So yes, take everything annoying about a cobbled-together, overly familiar YA adaptation, add the built-in wheel-spinning of a sequel, and you’ve got “Insurgent,” a film that works best when it places its heroine inside virtual-reality situations — at least then it has an excuse for eschewing logic and context.
