Review: After Insurgent I was skeptical, I wasn’t exactly rushing to see this film but I was quickly engaged in the story. The cinematography was beautiful and a step up to the previous film. The pace was nice and easy, there isn’t much going on, but I was entertained. I did feel like some characters were mishandled some were done away so quickly and without much impact that I almost rolled my eyes. The big baddy in this one start off great but becomes very stereotypical that it feels like the actor gave up at some point, or the direction given hindered the character.
