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.

This film makes the female lead a little stronger than in the book, which is satisfying. The energy and pace of the film and the chemistry between the main characters Tris and Four is compelling and there was plenty to hold our interest and imagination. Follows th book reasonably accurately, too.

The post apocalyptic, dystopian society has echoes of such other novels (though sufficiently different from it) as Brave New World. Unlike some reviewers, however, I wouldn't disdainfully compare it with the likes of Hunger Games, (which we also enjoyed), since it is sufficiently different from it.

A good, enjoyable film and I can't wait for the second in the trilogy to be on DVD.

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.

Having heard so much about this series I was pleased to see Divergent offered on Prime and was my first film to watch. Loved the storyline and characters. Look forward to watching Insurgent.

It is always a difficult task to create a story/film for the emerging young. I think this achieves it quite well. The layers are just right. All films are illusions but this manages to penetrate the complexity of life and offers good warnings for a new generation about conforming and trusting too readily the world you grow up into and encounter. And it doesn't preach. Good entertainment and a cut above many teenage coming of age movies. Hey! Young adults have to start somewhere and this does it well.

I really enjoyed this film even though it is probably aimed at a young audience. I identified with the chief protagonist,Tris, whose individuality renders her unable to fit into any of the five factions that make up a futuristic ,dystopian Chicago society. She is a Divergent, someone who cannot be pigeon holed into one category by the ruling elite. They see such types as dangerous ,unpredictable and a threat to social cohesion and they are hunted down and killed. Tris hides her secret and joins the daring ,warrior faction Dauntless.The film follows her progress as she undergoes a difficult training programme ,falls in love and tries to avoid detection. However in the background, one faction tries to usurp the governing role of another and this threatens Tris's family and the protective role of her Dauntless faction. Can she avoid detection and use her multi faceted skills to save the day ? "Divergent" is an exciting,imaginative film and is a critique of bad minded ruling elites desires to crush individuality and homogenise society into manageable ,ignorant little units. There's plenty of action,suspense and romance in this highly entertaining film.

A really great film! Character development, solid dialogue, excellent action scenes. The romance was very solid, natural, and unlike many romances in these sorts of films/stories not at all creepy or ridiculous. Liked the premise and the society it was set in. As a woman of colour underrepresented in mainstream media I noticed this film is far more diverse than most. Really my only complaint is that the soundtrack is Ellie Goulding and her voice goes right through me lol.
