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.

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.

Warning small spoiler - Bought this after seeing all the hype and advertising surrounding it and was not disappointed when watched it as was drawn into the Divergent world from start to finish. Brilliant acting especially by Ashley Judd in the action part scenes when she pauses mid gun fight to look at her daughter with admiration only a really good actress would have thought to do that and considering she doesn't have any children of her own I thought a really good part to put in as it caught my attention as a mum. Unfortunately I haven't managed to read the books prior to the film which I hate not doing as I had other reading commitments to complete first but I have ordered all the books and intend on starting to read them asap as I always think a book is better than the movie. If the book is even half as good as the film then i know I am going to be up into the early hours reading and hooked. Brilliant storyline and film and wow check our Theo James!

I understand that there are parts of the written story that wouldn't work on screen, but my opinion is that important parts of each character and their development were cut out just so the main focus was on the love story angle between tris and four. As I have read the books I was able to fill in the blanks, such as why Peter was not in the simulation when erudite used dauntless to kill the abnegation councillors. My boyfriend on the otherhand had not and I had to recall that peter was a psycho who stabbed another dauntless prospect in the eye as he was on the verge of being factionless as his score was to low and the importance of this boy showing up in the second book.
To me this is just one of the many 'little' incidental moments the have a meaning to later books.

Divergent is a movie adaptation of a popular young adult post apocalyptic novel.

For the uninitiated:

In a world sometime after the collapse of civilisation as we know it [something demonstrated by a rather impressive opening few shots] people live in a city where society is divided into various factions. Each of which is based on a human virtue. From selflessness to intelligence to love to honesty to daring.

Those not in a faction live lives of total emptiness and despair.

When teenagers come of age they have to take a test which shows them which faction they best belong to. Then they choose which one they want to join.

When Tris Prior [Shailene Woodley] takes the test, her results are inconclusive. Which means she's divergent. Someone too individual to fit into any single faction.

Divergents are public enemy number one in this society.

Forced to hide in plain sight, she joins Dauntless. The faction of the daring.

A dangerous training programme awaits. Where she finds enemies. Friends. Allies. And a dangerous conspiracy that threatens to shatter the status quo....

Divergent endeavours to make social points about society and individualism, and make you think about them as well.

Whilst also being an action and a thriller movie with it.

Those who have read the book will find a relatively faithful adaptation. Perhaps the best you could have hoped for. It does have to change some things and leave other things out. But that's all to make it work as a film.

The characters are all pretty well drawn. Shailene Woodley is a capable lead. It moves along at quite a decent pace. And does contain a few good punch the air moments as characters achieve certain things.
