DIVERGENT is a thrilling action-adventure film set in a world where people are divided into distinct factions based on human virtues. Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley) is warned she is Divergent and will never fit into any one group. When she discovers a conspiracy by a faction leader (Kate Winslet) to destroy all Divergents, Tris must learn to trust in the mysterious Four (Theo James) and together they must find out what makes being Divergent so dangerous before it’s too late. Based on the best-selling book series by Veronica Roth.

Storyline

Another Hunger Games concept, but the instead of surviving – the story is about how a teenager who has the power to choose other faction beside the the agreed faction.  The movie surrounds at Beatrice(Tris), a girl who is different from other.
Tris is a Divergent; a person with many faction attributes. In a perfect government, everybody does as they are ordered or rather chosen. She is considered as rare and in a fully controlled dictator government, she has to be removed or killed.
Stars_Showcase_-_Divergent_Book_ClubIn total there is 5 factions:
   1.  Abnegation (selfless)
2.  Amity (peaceful)
   3.  Candor (truthful)
   4.  Erudite (intelligent)
   5.  Dauntless (brave)

We totally love the concept of faction of how your life is decided based on a test. This is where the movie stand out if compared to the Hunger Games. Compared to the Hunger Games, Divergent is more refined in terms of plot.
Even thou the movie is a little draggy at some point but the plot really cover’s up that part.
The movie directed in a way to suit the youth in our opinion.

Plot: 8.5/10
Review: 8.0/10

The movie is available in TGV and GSC.
