Movie Review: Divergent

Hey Everyone!!

Here's another movie review!!

So again, just like The Maze Runner which I reviewed today as well, we watched Divergent for Christmas!  Now, I actually saw this one when it was in theaters, but for some reason I guess I completely forgot to review it!

Description and picture from IMDb:


In a world divided by factions based on virtues, Tris learns she's Divergent and won't fit in. When she discovers a plot to destroy Divergents, Tris and the mysterious Four must find out what makes Divergents dangerous before it's too late.


My Thoughts:

Just like the first time, the second time I saw Divergent it was still really good!  We actually own this one now, it was a Christmas present, so I can watch whenever!!

Anyway, another Dystopian, where I couldn't get into the book.  To be fair, I may have not been in the mind set when I first started reading this one, but I also own it on Audiobook, so maybe one day I'll give it another chance!

The movie, on the other hand, is really great! I love the concept of a world split into different sanctions. I wouldn't want to live like that, but the concept is none-the-less very interesting!  Tris, played by Shailene Woodley (The Fault in Our Stars and The Secret Life of an American Teenager) does a great job playing someone who is very scared but pretending to be very brave.  Such a great character!

Four, played by Theo James (Underworld: The Awakening) was another great character! Both him and Shailene are who made this movie this amazing!

Overall rating:

Again not a movie I would watch over and over again, only because of the seriousness of the storyline, but this a really good movie! I definitely recommend this one, even if you're not a dystopian fan!

  1. I haven't seen the movie. My reaction to the book was,"okay, but I won't bother with the sequels." As for the virtues, it ade me think of Hogwarts houses, only the villains are the Ravenclaws. ;-)
