Critics Consensus

With an adherence to YA formula that undercuts its individualistic message, Divergent opens its planned trilogy in disappointingly predictable fashion.

    Not bad for YA rehash.

    Yes! A new movie based on some weird young adult novel. And honestly, this movie doesn't really anything new to the genre. This movie is actually incredibly boring and uninteresting. I did never read these books so I don't know how much is directly adapted, but I know that it's incredibly sloppy written and really slow paced at some points in the movie. However, the performances in the movie are actually enjoyable almost all-over. Shailene Woodley is pretty good as Tris, while Kate Winslet kills it as the villain in the movie.

    Didn't even make it past the opening exposition. That level of stupidity is beyond me.

    Was surprisingly entertained by this lab experiment mashing up The Hunger Games, Twilight, and other random young adult fiction. I hear they're making a sequel? Might check it out despite not caring where the characters really go barring some nude scenes.
