Whats The Story.
In a futuristic Chicago, society is divided into 5 factions. Abnegation the selfless, Dauntless the brave, Erudite the intelligent, Candor the honest & Amity the peaceful, When all teenagers reach the age of 16, they must choose to either stay in their faction of birth, or transfer into another faction.

Beatrice Prior must make the decision to stay with her family in a faction she feels she isn't right for, or to transfer into another faction, & leave her family behind.

What follows is a highly competitive initiation process to live out the choice Tris has made as she must undergo extreme physical & intense psychological tests, that transform them all.

But Tris has a secret that she is Divergent, which means she doesn't fit into any one group. If anyone knew, it would mean a certain death.

Forced to hide this deadly secret, Tris has to make a difficult choice who is drawn to her enigmatic mentor, Four who appears to both threaten & protect her.

I have very mixed opinions about this story. The tense atmosphere amongst the divided factions works well, but the romance is incredibly predictable and unnecessary.

Woodley strongly asserts herself as Tris, someone who defies conformity and is shown to be very brave in harsh times, but I felt that the (budding) connection between herself and 'Four' (Theo James) was forced and only there for the contrivity of having the two lead characters get together. He makes sense as her brooding mentor, but I question if anyone would have been so interested in Tris and Four getting together had Mr James not been British or so attractive. Don't get me wrong, he's fine as the generic action lead male, and I can see why he was chosen (despite being much older than the actual book character) but his swift change to being her love interest did not work for me.

The other problem with DIVERGENT is that it doesn't bring anything new to the table in this era of Young Adult adaptations, it merely depicts those same cliched ideas already covered in a vast majority of movies and television shows. A basic summary: the lead female character longs to break free from a world she does not relate to and be with her brooding boyfriend who is burdened by daddy issues. Nevertheless, it's that same storyline that seems to draw in big box office numbers, so somehow, the younger generation's enthusiasm to see the same storyline over and over again amongst different movie franchises keeps these YA series popular in the media.

I must admit when i first saw the trailer for this movie i thought oh great another hunger games wannabe not watching it then i started to warm up to this movie and couldnt wait to watch it as missed it at the cinema so watched it on dvd and after an hour i got bored with it it is nearly exactly the same pace as hunger games catching fire but is just as slow but catching fire is even slower the main girl is hot dnt get me wrong and the idea of five factions and a test to see where u fit into one of the factions and if your divergent u a threat to sociaty and must be killed i thought it was good but boring and a world which is recovering from war hunger games anyone except they arnt killing one another for survival and entertainment i actually very nearly fell asleep watching this i liked the host that had a great story divergent seems to fall into soppy teen romance that 14 to 17 year old girls would watch on a sleepover im 30 and i do watch these sort of movies but it seems hollywood wants to turn every teen scifi or fantasy book into a movie the next is maze runners and if its anything like divergent we're all doomed

I really enjoyed this movie based on the very popular YA novels by Veronica Roth, it provided everything I enjoyed so much in the books. This could be the new teen movie franchise with a fantastic cast, great customs and amazing story. I would recommend this film to anyone who loves action, romance and YA themes.
This movie stayed as true to the book as it could while not being the book.
