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.

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.

Based on the young adult novel (series) of the same name, Divergent is the story of a post-Apocalyptic Dystopian society (a future Chicago), where districts and livelihoods are seperated into "factions" according to personality traits and human virtues such as intelligence, bravery, selflessness and truth etc. These factions are known "Abnegation", "Amity", "Candor", "Dauntless" and "Erudite" The story focusses on Triss (Shailene Woodley) a young female from Abnegation (selfless) who on the day of the "choosing ceremony" (where 16 year olds choose which faction they will belong to) chooses to join "Dauntless" (brave) who police the streets of Chicago. In choosing to live in "Dauntless", Triss must leave her family behind, including brother Caleb (Ansel Elgort) who chooses to live in Erudite (intelligent) and her parents who remain in Abnegation (who govern all 5 of the factions). In order to succeed in Dauntless and avoid being "factionless" (the state of failing your human traits and being banished to the streets with no identity) Triss must prove she has what it takes to be brave, strong, courageous and fearless. Whilst she proves to be both brave and fearless, she also shows signs of being intelligent, selfless and truthful, making her "Divergent", a state which is considered dangerous by the Government. In order to avoid being killed, Triss must keep her "Divergent" status secret.

Meanwhile, Erudite run by the tyranical Jeanine (Kate Winslet) is plotting to overthrow Abnegation to gain control of the whole city.

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.
