Review: Divergent

24 Apr 14


A great young cast with sides of past shining stars of Winslett and Judd. Its hard for films like this to be judged on their own merrit and not compared to other teen action films such as twighlight, vampire academy, hunger games all adaptations from books. All up the film follws a good storyline after all its based on an award winning novel. The acting is exemplary from an up and coming Woodley. I enjoyed the film and its grit and futuristic appeal for what may be, it is different in terms of being strong humans rather than vampires and its all more realistic. If it were not another novel adaptation delivered with the rest in a saturated market it would rate higher i am sure but I guess its make hay while the sun shines for these films, a good holiday film, an enjoyable and interesting almost enthralling watch!!
