The Divergent Series: Insurgent
Rating: PG-13 for intense violence and action throughout, some sensuality, thematic elements and brief language
What it’s about: The “divergent” teens and 20-somethings who don’t fit in carry out their revolt against tyrannical conformity.
The kid attractor factor: Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ansel Elgort and Miles Teller take charge of their sci-fi destiny in this violent post-apocalyptic future.
Good lessons/bad lessons: “Dark times call for extreme measures,” but violence begets violence.
Violence: Yes, not a lot of blood, but otherwise pretty explicit
Language: Bits of profanity
Sex: Yes, mostly off-camera
Drugs: None to speak of
Parents’ advisory: More action-packed and violent than the first “Divergent” film, still OK for 10-and-up.
