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).

Divergent is actually based on the first of a series of Novels written by Veronica Roth, (I have yet to read them). They have a lot in common with the recent Hunger Games films (which I haven't seen, but have read). Having not read the books I passed on the film originally but as it's on Prime I gave it a go.

The film is set after an unspecified war which seems to have leveled earth and society as we know it. Chicago has been turned into a giant walled city to protect against unspecified dangers. The city government is split into five groups each representing a human trait, (honesty, intelligence, peace, courage, selflessness) each member goes through a test to deem which faction they are in to continue society, if you don't pass the test you become factionless, a form of homeless.

This entire set up and test is ridicuous. It implies that people only have one trait of strength, and if they don't fit they are completely useless and given nothing to do, even manual labour? How does that possibly work?

At 16 children take the faction test to see where they belong, faction before family. Beatrice Prior (Shailene Woodley) gets an incredibly rare result, she has qualities of every faction (like normal people?) Making her a Divergent. Divergents are feared and hunted which is also never explained forcing Beatrice to hide what she is.

Hiding among Dauntless, the faction of courage which are essentially the city's soldiers, Beatrice is helped by Four (Theo James), a Dauntless member who knows who she is before they uncover a plot which could both destroy the city and endanger Beatrice's parents.

The story is full of holes and unexplained threads but despite that I rather enjoyed it.

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.

This is a good, if simplified, screen version of the original book. The film does an excellent job of visualising the world of this trilogy: the ruins of Chicago, the Dauntless headquarters. Unfortunately, despite the 2 hours+ running time, the characters are only sketched in: Triss and Four are suitably pretty but Four, especially, lacks the hardness of the book. The other Dauntless initiates Peter, Al and Will barely exist as characters, and even Christina has little more than a walk-on part.

Despite that, though, I liked the energy of the film and the chemistry between Triss and Four. If you've loved the books then this is definitely worth watching - if you haven't, then this film version doesn't do justice to them.

Oh my lord, we have just finished watching this and I can honestly say it's 2 hours and 20 mins of my life I wish I had back.

Right from the start of this averagely acted, predictable, teenage-focused nonsense, I realised I was just watching another iteration of The Hunger Games and Twilight - we had selected this based on popular book reviews. Nothing progressed quickly, everything was obvious and guessable, we did not see any intelligence in either the story telling or the script and our 4K TV revealed a whole host of shockingly bad CGI moments with blue screen backdrops a plenty.

Story elements brazenly lifted from other sci-fi movies are thrown in together; we spotted plagiarism from Logan's Run and even from Assassins Creed in there (the parts where characters are plugged into machines and enter alternative realities).

Clearly filmed on a budget (80% of the film takes place in one cave/a couple of streets) this is something I would not be proud to have put my name to if I were Kate Winslet. She is capable of far better.

I understand there are many more books to follow; I certainly won't be watching the inevitable movie versions.

Entertaining for 10-12 year old girls who like soppy crush movies, avoid at all costs if you're seeking anything even slightly more highbrow :-/

If you like films such as The Hunger Games, etc., or if you're a young(ish) girl/lady, I'm sure you'll really enjoy this. It's not a bad film, although it doesn't (in my humble opinion) come close to Hunger Games (less action, less story-line, less depth... far too little Jennifer Lawrence (being that she isn't in it!)). Personally, I thought there was a little too much moody self-obsession, and it definitely seemed to drag on a bit too long. I would definitely not say to avoid, but I wouldn't tell my mates to rush out and watch it either. Enjoy (or not).
