Final Thoughts

I absolutely love the books.   So the prospect of seeing the books come to life IS even a bigger treat.   I loved the first film as it followed the book almost to a T.  Even down to the quilt Four (aka Tobias Eaton) had on his bed that his mother had made for him. Yes, Veronica Roth (author) made a cameo appearance in it as well.  The second film unfortunately took a detour from the book but was absolutely true to the characters and plot line.  Some of my favorite parts in the book were in the film and I loved it regardless of the slight detour.   If you are expecting Allegiant to be like the book, prepared to be disappointed.  It follows the book within the first 10 minutes (or so) of the film then goes completely off course.  This being said, don’t let it discourage you from enjoying the film.  I just completely went at it with an open mind.  In fact, I think this film blows the second one out of the ball park.  Its action packed,  has great special effects, and the cast is amazing.   The essence of the characters is still there.  Tris’s determination, Four’s will to protect Tris at all costs, Faction beliefs, Even the love that Four has for Tris. You can see it!  The score is equally amazing.  I totally recommend this film if you are a fan of the books or not.  You don’t need to read the books to know what’s going on in the film.  Catch Allegiant on Digital HD NOW (released June 21, 2016) or Blu-ray Combo Pack & DVD on July 12, 2016.
