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.
