This movie is jumping on the YA trend about 2 years too late. It’s based on a series of books about yet another dystopian future, where young people are singled out for their gifts,..but not in a good way. There are some OK special effects and passable action, but too much of the plot is taken up by the romance between the 2 leads (Amandla Stenberg & Harris Dickinson). Even though they’re compelling enough, these scenes drag down the momentum. Overall, it’s a decent adventure for the intended audience, but breaks no new ground. NOTE: The ending doesn’t conclude, but leaves you hanging for the sequel.

 

2.5 Stars (2.5 / 5)
