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.

I'm not a teenager, I'm 44 and I love it, both the film and the books!!
What woman wouldn't love Theo James as 'Four'? He's perfect eye candy and perfect in the role.

Another teen-fest movie trying following on the coattails of The Hunger Games but failing completely.
The characters are shallow and unlikable, the story doesn't develop quickly enough and the film is just too damn long, 2hours 19 minutes to be exact. The lead girl really isn't that likable and she really doesn't have the skills or looks to carry this film to the end. The plot is basically that same as all the recent teen films...Mortal Instruments, Enders Game etc... Post apocalyptic coming of age film were the lead tries to figure out who they are and what their place in the world is. It's nothing new and we've seen it done before and a lot better than this. The film is slick and looks great but it's just not enough to carry it through to the end, let alone the trilogy which this film seems to be setting up. This is one of those films that charity shops will be brimming over with in a few years. PS this is a film, not a book so stop comparing the two as they're two completely different formats.

Format: DVD
Personally, I read the book years ago when it first came out - and loved it! When I heard about the movie, the first Hunger Games movie had just came out and the comparisons have run on ever since. Other than The Hunger Games, Harry Potter and Twilight, YA adaptations have all failed. The Host, Vampire Academy, Beautiful Creatures and The Mortal Instruments all made next to nothing at the box office so when Divergent was next in line, people got nervous. But the shouldn't have worried at all.
Divergent earned more than all the previous four adaptations combined, and there is a reason. No matter the shaky critic reviews - the story DOES hold it's own originality and unpredictability. The direction and performances were also on top form and the movie turned out to be a masterpiece.
It is suitable for all audiences, as myself (14) enjoyed it, my sister and her boyfriend (non-readers, 19,20) and my parents (non-readers, 45,49) all liked it also.
Altogether, Divergent is a unique, exciting film definitely worth buying.

Divergent was one of the best book to film adaptations I've seen, there were things missing, but nothing was changed. Theo James was spectacular, and Shailene Woodley was a far better arris than I ever expected!
Absolutely great, would recommend to anyone!

I loved the books and I loved this film. The actors were cast very well, and acted brilliantly, the sets were amazing and fit the descriptions in the book. I would definitely recommend this film!

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.

This was much better than I expected. There is little to fault about it. It's not as good as The Hunger Games, but definitely didn't deserve to be rotten on rotten tomatoes. The performances were good and it's refreshing to see a great, original idea. Very highly recommended.
