Divergent: the Movie

I finally got to sit down and watch Divergent.  I loved it!  I don't say that very often with a movie that was based off a book.  The book is always better.  I have to say that they did a very good job on adapting this excellent book onto film.  I'm sure they missed some things people loved from the book but personally I couldn't find anything lacking.

The only thing I found distracting were the boys that Shailene Woodley had kissed before in other movies, like her brother Caleb in "The Fault in Our Stars" and Peter in "The Spectacular Now".  Talk about 3 degrees of separation or whatever that phrase is! 

Anyway I digress.  Now I can't wait to see the next movie, but before than I need to finish the second book!

Has anyone else seen the movie?  How did you like it compared to the book?

  1. I've heard people complain that they didn't like the movie--or that it was simply too slow. I thought that they did a good job in general. In my opinion, the book is always better--but this was decent. Hunger Games has been made well...these two series are starting off better than Twilight ever did!! TG!
