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.

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.

Was surprised at how much I enjoyed this, as I had wondered if it would come across like a poor copy of the Hunger Games. While the lead is no Jennifer Lawrence - and the plot is not exactly deep - it's a fast paced film that really keeps you watching. Also liked the soundtrack.

A great start to what I hope will be a superb franchise. Unlike many science-fiction stories, the narrative is focused on the main character's journey as she tries to identify where she fits in a post-war world. In fact, the main plot take a second role to the growth of her character for the main part of the movie, with a much more typical generic action ending. So if you're after a science fiction action romp then this isn't it, although it does have some lovely action scenes - one in particular had me rewind the scene to have the pleasure of watching it again. It is therefore fortunate the the main character is very well acted, and this film is more about her journey than about the wider societal issues that form the ending. The film is also nicely grounded despite it being set centuries in the future, so there is little in the form of distracting CGI visuals - not that I mind some eye-candy effects but it's refreshing to have a nicely fleshed out world that feels real. Looking forward to watching the sequel, which I suspect will have a more action now that the main story and characters have been introduced.

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.
