Reviews

In a futuristic Chicago, society is divided into five factions based on personality type, created to bring everlasting peace.

On a given day each year, all sixteen year olds must take a test and choose where they belong. For Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley) the choice is not an easy one. In a divided existence where everyone must conform, Tris is DIVERGENT – a danger and threat to this seemingly perfect world.

Forced to hide this deadly secret, Tris has to make a difficult choice and is drawn to her enigmatic mentor, Four (Theo James), who appears to both threaten and protect her. As a dangerous conflict develops amongst the factions, Tris must rely on her strength and courage not only to survive, but to save the people she loves.

This year’s hottest new action-adventure is directed by Neil Burger and stars Shailene Woodley (The Descendants), Theo James (The Inbetweeners), Kate Winslet (Contagion), Zoe Kravitz (X-Men: First Class), Miles Teller (That Awkward Moment), Jai Courtney (A Good Day to Die Hard) and Maggie Q (Mission: Impossible III).

I really enjoyed this film even though it is probably aimed at a young audience. I identified with the chief protagonist,Tris, whose individuality renders her unable to fit into any of the five factions that make up a futuristic ,dystopian Chicago society. She is a Divergent, someone who cannot be pigeon holed into one category by the ruling elite. They see such types as dangerous ,unpredictable and a threat to social cohesion and they are hunted down and killed. Tris hides her secret and joins the daring ,warrior faction Dauntless.The film follows her progress as she undergoes a difficult training programme ,falls in love and tries to avoid detection. However in the background, one faction tries to usurp the governing role of another and this threatens Tris's family and the protective role of her Dauntless faction. Can she avoid detection and use her multi faceted skills to save the day ? "Divergent" is an exciting,imaginative film and is a critique of bad minded ruling elites desires to crush individuality and homogenise society into manageable ,ignorant little units. There's plenty of action,suspense and romance in this highly entertaining film.

Personally saw the trailer when it was due for cinema release and though "oh god, not another twilight/hunger games etc" films that are based on novels with a good plot and yet exploited to draw swarms of screaming teen fan girls. Honestly I have no issue with romance in films, nor with having an attractive cast, what does bug me, is taking a good story and turning it into Twilight. Typical plotline is take your supposedly average main character, and throw them into an anything but ordinary situation. Nothing wrong with that, it gives us all the belief that it could happen to us, and lets face it movies are escapism, which is why no matter how many times that set up is used we still love it. My issue is focusing too much on romance and not having personally read the novels to such films being told creating relationships that didn't exist in the first place. It shouldn't ever over shadow the plot. Lets face it some of these movies have such interesting plots yet get way too bogged down with the romance.

Anyway enough ranting, what follows include spoilers so you've been warned.

I don't feel like going to much into things, but if what you read above described how you felt about such films as Hunger Games and Twilight you'll be glad to know the romance is done far more subtly and sticks to a single person, no complicated love triangles here. It is there, and its pretty obvious and in the latter half of the film at times shoved in your face but its still at an acceptable level.
Now many reviews are comparing to the book what was in and what wasn't. I never read and probably never will. That said I have watched plenty of things that came from a comic or novel and can understand peoples irritation to changes and skipping things you consider important.

Glancing at some of the reviews the film has obviously been true to the 'Book' which is always good news.
Some time in the future many years after war had destroyed much of mankind, in the city once known as
'Chicago' now 'Dystopia' society are divided into five factions, which is determined by an aptitude test.
'Tris Prior' disappoints her parents when after the test she chooses to join the 'Dauntless' a group sworn
to help and protect the factions living within the fencing that surrounds the city.
Tris' must complete a series of gruelling and intense tests and trials to be accepted within the order, failure
is not an option, being in the bottom four in their section will see failures no longer able to return home, left
with no hope no home and no real place in society.
After a series of tests 'Tris' remains in the bottom four in her group and on the verge of being dropped from
the program.
One of the key members of the 'Dauntless' 'Four' befriends 'Tris' breaking ranks to help and encourage her
make it through the final trials.
Though she does face one more trial, she has to face her fears.
'Jeanine' a faction leader appears to be a friend when asking for 'Tris's' support, it becomes apparent during
their conversation 'Jeanine's' intention is to rid the city of 'Divergents'
'Tris' has never told anyone the outcome of her earlier aptitude test when she'd been told that she was a
'Divergent' which actually makes her an enemy of the faction leader - the Divergents are different and seen
as dangerous.
What control has Jeanine over the army of 'Dauntless' are there enemies within the faction.

I thought this was a good stab at creating a dystopian future society. It captured very well the feeling of being different and having to hide this in a society where roles and behaviour are prescribed by a system. The characterisation was believable and I think the director was justified in spending quite a long time setting up the story by dwelling on the recruits training. Which was why I felt disappointed that the ending was so rushed. While I'm not a great fan of sequels, this film could have upped the ante and left the ending on a cliff hanger at the point when the take over is complete and all seems lost for the main protagonists. If ever a film needed an ending like this it is this one. Perhaps this story would have been more suited to a TV series because that is an ideal format to develop a slower narrative pace and set up repeated cliff hangers.

Like Enders Game, which initially appears to be little more than an extended video game, this film leaves the viewer with quite profound questions about conforming to an ideal of loyalty to the state and its often dubious motivations. It also attempts to show how empathy for others can sometimes lead people to question the kind of propaganda that is used to justify discrimination and conformity.

Some have complained that the attractiveness of the leads takes away from the divergent message but I think that's besides the point considering that classics like Blade Runner, Alien and every other big budget Hollywood production have cast attractive leads. Hollywood is built on conformity and stereotypes but still manages, at times, to rise above this.
