While the Hunger Games stories will sit at the top of the futuristic dystopian teen-angst genre, it is nice to see a movie which can credibly deserve to sit on the first branch down. Based on the novels by Veronica Roth we are transported to a dire futuristic Chicago where all citizens are assigned to a faction in their teen years following testing, while those exhibiting qualities of various factions are rounded up and exterminated. Our heroine Tris falls into the latter but keeps her true self hidden as she fights to survive in her chosen faction. I actually enjoyed Divergent as the action was steady and the tension was maintained throughout. A good start to the trilogy.

Some books improve by being made into films or TV dramas, but this really isn't one of them. The film is right up there with "Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit" in taking only the bare bones of a great story and refashioning them into something that fits a set time slot and the director's idea of what a computer games generation audience wants - I hope the royalties paid to the author made up for the pain of seeing a good book thrashed. If you like the film, I can highly recommend that you read the book, because you'll love it even more. I made the mistake of reading it first, before watching the film, and feel extremely disappointed with the on-screen version, which is extremely dull in comparison and completely lacks any characterisation. Forget the film - sometimes the old-fashioned approach of reading a book (or listening to it if you have an Audible subscription) is the clear winner.

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.

I myself, haven't read the book and see that some say it's true to the story, some say not, for me, it's
quite simply an enjoyable, and am looking forward to - 'Insurgent'
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 note that a lot of reviewers have compared this to the 'Hunger Games' series of films. There are some similarities: the lead character is a teen female and society is split into factions, to name the main two. And I have no doubt that Divergent is aimed at the same audience and will have had a kick-start from the success of The Hunger Games, but I think this film stands alone okay.

** Slight spoilers in the next paragraph **

Essentially it's a story about one of society's misfits - a so-called Divergent - as she tries (at first) to pigeon-hole herself into one of the factions, as required by the dystopian society in which she lives. She tries to become part of the 'Dauntless' faction, which is tasked with protecting and policing society, and much of the film takes us through the challenges of her training for that faction.

I won't give any more of the story away so as not to spoil it for others, but I think this is a decent two hours+ of entertainment and Shailene Woodley does a good job of bringing the lead role to life. I think a lot of the other characterisations are little empty though and there's a certain predictability about how the story will unfold.

As a 50 year old man, I'm probably not the target audience for this but I found it entertaining enough and will probably watch any sequels that are made. My three star rating is more like 3.5 really.
