Loved the "Divergent" Movie!

This video is a review of Divergent by a girl who doesn't hold back her feelings. I think she really loved it!  I agree with everything she says about it.

We do not go to a lot of movies, but "Divergent" is one we were both looking forward to seeing and were not disappointed.  We both enjoyed the Divergent trilogy by Monica Roth so we sort of knew what was coming in the movie, which I believe helps.  We thought the movie did the book justice and the acting was incredible.

Reading about Dauntless jumping from the train, the way they entered their "home" and the ziplining was good but watching the movie really brought those scenes to life!  Tris, the main character, was played extremely well by Shailene Woodley.  When we left, all we could say was "Wow!"  That movie was so good!  

This is a YA movie but us seniors loved it and most of the comments I've read about it and the video reviews I've watched on You Tube agree.  A few criticized it because it didn't stick 100% to the book and left out some characters.  Having read the book so long ago, I really didn't even notice.  I didn't remember Tris being cut and then escaping and running for the train to join in the capture the flag challenge; was that in the book?  I really liked that challenge with the Ferris wheel scene and Tris coming through for her team.

If you haven't seen this movie and like adventure, we recommend it!  If you already saw this, what did you think of it.

I haven't seen it, but I did listen to the audio version of the books. Good stories, but not sure I'll see the movie, at least not in the theater.

I'm glad you recommended this! My daughter has been practically begging me to go and I just don't want to. Nothing personal, just not a movie person. It helps to know the movie is good thought! I might have to reconsider.

Jantina, You should go with your daughter so you could discuss it after with her. It is so good, you do want to talk about it after seeing it!
