I liked this movie better than the hunger games. It's similar in some ways but yet so different and I was glad for that. It was actually better than I was expecting. I really like the characters. The plot is good and very believable. It's something that could happen and it is so true about human nature. The way that we handle things and try to control everything. When something is not known or understood destroy it.

Not quite the hunger games, but it is still a good story with a strong female lead.

tris was not a strong main character. plus the whole idea of factions where everyone was supposed to be just 1 kind of personality seemed silly since EVERYONE in the movie was obviously displaying attributes of several factions at once. the action was good, though. theo was great.

I loved the movie but the book was better because you can know what the character is feeling on the inside and their thoughts.

I thought this was a very good adaptation of an excellent book. As with any movie adaptation, some details got lost, but the overall "soul" of the story was maintained. I suspect this was in part because of the author's involvement in production.

I watched the movie with my husband who has not read the book and who doesn't have much interest in the genre (though he enjoyed the Hunger Games movie and did go on to read those books). He had to ask me a couple of questions early on about what was going on with the factions but otherwise seemed to enjoy the movie. Afterward, he said it was a good movie with lots of action (which is high praise from someone who doesn't generally bother to comment on such things).

I read the book and watched the movie and lost interest half way through both of them. Maze Runner and Hunger Games are better alternatives.

Maybe there's some abnegation in everyone - except Peter.

Opening narrative:
Tris: We're lucky to be in the city. They say the war was terrible, that the rest of the world was destroyed. Our founders built the wall to keep us safe, and they divided us into five groups, factions, to keep the peace. The smart ones, the ones who value knowledge and logic, are in Erudite. They know everything. Amity farm the land. They're all about kindness and harmony, always happy. Candor value honesty and order. They tell the truth, even when you wish they wouldn't. And then there's Dauntless. They're our protectors, our soldiers, our police. I always thought they were amazing. Brave, fearless and free. Some people think Dauntless are crazy, when they kind of are.

Tori: You're different. You don't fit into a category. They can't control you. They call it Divergent.
