Movies Open Forum: THE DIVERGENT SERIES: INSURGENT written by Robert Reineke March 19, 2015 Shailene Woodley is doing alright for herself after getting edited out of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2. Yeah, THE DIVERGENT SERIES is not THE HUNGER GAMES in terms of box office or critical opinion, but there aren’t too many young actresses heading up franchises these days. THE DIVERGENT SERIES is clearly riding the Young Adult wave that’s very popular at the moment. I think only THE HUNGER GAMES is going to have a long lasting impact, but if this wave is making the case for young women leading action franchises, good for it. Comic book movies originating from the 40s to 60s aren’t doing much of a job of it, yet. Beyond the social impact of the latest trend, we’re certainly interested in hearing thoughts on the film from our readers. Feel free to praise or blast away.
