Based on Veronica Roth book series of same name, 'Allegiant - Part 1' features the return of Tris and Four as they enture into the world outside of the fence and are taken into protective custody by a mysterious agency known as the Bureau of Genetic Welfare.

Is the movie worth your time and money? Check out what top critics are saying about the movie below;

"A story that kicked off two years ago at a reasonable gallop has now slowed to barely a limp." New York Times.

"It's the weakest of the three films, but hopefully it tees up the fourth film for a big finish." - Coming Soon.

"So shopworn even the preternaturally warm Woodley looks bored." - Metro.

"Plodding stuff which accentuates the silliness of the original's teen-mag personality-trope set-up, a narrative device that becomes more boringly byzantine with each successive instalment." - Observer.

The Divergent series has always seemed like thinnish gruel compared with the much richer feast of The Hunger Games, and this one is the weakest yet." - Daily Mail Uk.

"Big but boring, expansive but cheap-looking, Allegiant spins in place, waiting for next year's Ascendent to come along and offer resolution. In all candour: you can do without it." - Guardian.

"Like the earlier Divergent films, Allegiant is studded with enticing science-fiction ideas, but it keeps such a poker-straight face while presenting them, you often can't help but crack up."- Daily Telegraph.

"Instead of bringing much-needed clarity, Allegiant piles on yet more bamboozling mythology to flummox and confound." - Empire Magazine.

" Allegiant' is superior to 'Insurgent' without qualifying as "good." - Forbes.

"More like redundant." - Hollywood Reporter.

"This first half of the artificially split two-part finally may diverge from Veronica Roth's source material, but doesn't necessarily solve its problems." - Variety.

"Brings back the same cast of characters to do more or less exactly what they did in the previous films, only this time in sets with more sci-fi gloss than postapocalyptic grunge." - The Wrap.

Outside The Hunger Games and Twilight franchises, the 'Divergent' movies are also Lionsgate’s highest-grossing films domestically.

Whole Allegiant – Part 1 will hit theaters on March 18, 2016, 'Allegiant – Part 2" has been scheduled for a June 9, 2017 release.
