Excerpt: an interesting tagline when this movie itself is basically a B-Side version of The Hunger Games. Obviously Divergent has been and will always be compared to that movie, but things are slightly different but the overall look and feel is Hunger Game-ish.
Excerpt: set in a futuristic world where people live in different fractions the smart fraction the helpful the police and so on once people come of age they get tested to see which fraction to join, but they can choose which one anyway.
Summary: This has no reason being as good as it is, considering how many movies based off young adult fiction have been released on a yearly basis these days. But Divergent is surprisingly entertaining with a solid performance from Shailene Woodley as a leading lady and competent direction by Neil Burger.
Summary: DIVERGENT is a thrilling action-adventure film set in a world where people are divided into distinct factions based on human virtues. Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley) is warned she is Divergent and will never fit into any one group.
Excerpt: In a cinema landscape that has recently been overrun by (mostly generic) teen novel adaptations, 'Divergent' is a better alternative. Like usual, the story is an action/sci-fi hybrid that sits in front of a social issue backdrop.
Conclusion: This is an amazing sci-fi thriller and probably the best sci-fi of the year, the story is fantastic and very original, its really well paced out over the 2hr 19min run time, I found it very deep and absorbing constantly throughout with great characters that are interesting and build up really well...
Summary: Divergent has a great cast that makes the movie so much better. Shailene
Woodley is a great female lead who makes Tris believable and relatable. The movie has changes to the book, as most book to movie adaptations but
it's spectacular, visually stunning and has a good story.
