Insurgent is a near-miss of a film; its characters and plot lines have potential to tell an interesting story, but suffers from its poor writing and pandering to an adolecent audience. There are some interesting scenes and good performances, but the film eventually feels convoluted and melodramatic. Insurgent is a film with undeniable positives and strong action sequences and performances, but the script fails to energize the project or bring it anything original. The film isn’t an unbearably terrible film, just a bland one that offers little more than the expected. Grade: C
