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.

Ok, let’s address the elephant in the room, Divergent was made purely to ride the coat tales of the massively successful Hunger Games franchise, a fact that would make most people apprehensive at the least. Who wants to watch the poor mans Hunger Games when you can just watch the actual Hunger Games? Well I can honestly tell you that the concept and characters are original and compelling enough for this film to be enjoyed without comparison to the afore mentioned franchise, that’s not to say that Divergent is better than Hunger Games, it’s just, Different.

From the get go I found this film drawing me in with its notion, Chicago, post a non-descript war, that has made the surrounding areas uninhabitable, found the only way to live peacefully is to divide society into several factions. There's Dauntless, the brave warriors; Amity, peaceful farmers; Candor, truth tellers; Erudite, the brainy; and Abnegation, the selfless. Teenagers take a test to determine which faction suits them best, but they are still free to choose what faction they would like to live their life in, those who don’t fit in any of the groups become the factionless, and live life out in squalor and poverty. Each of the five factions help balance with the other four and thus society carries on peacefully with stability. The reason the film drew me in straight away is that I found myself thinking, “that is actually a great way of doing things, I wonder if that would work in real life?” this is actually a weird line of thinking for a future dystopian film to provoke, so straight away, I had to give the story, or at least the concept, top marks. But we already knew that this film would provide us with an interesting story as it so proudly displays in the opening credits “Based on the book by Veronica Roth”.

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 loved the book that this film is based upon, but feel that the film is a very poor relation. So much of the book is about character interactions with the other 'Initiates' and how Tris develops as a person through these, but in the film you're barely even aware that the others have names, never mind characters!

There are other aspects where it fails, such as:

"Whoops, someone very close (won't add a spoiler) just got killed, and so onto the next scene" - Hello - major trauma just skipped over!

"I'm terrified of heights, so let's just walk casually from the middle of this narrow bridge to the building it's connected to" - totally unreal.

There were some bright spots - another death was handled so totally differently and I actually felt some solid emotion coming through which was a delightful breath of fresh air from the film. However, most of the film was emotionally flat in my opinion.

I really wanted to enjoy this movie after reading the book, but try as I could I found it flat and dull. :(

I'm sure some will truly enjoy this movie adaptation, but sadly I'm not one of them. I expect I'll watch the others but I'll not be holding my breath waiting for them to come out.
