    A relative wanted to see this movie... So we all did. However, as i am a sci fi buff- and I mean going all the way back to the 1950s pulp novels- I recognized instantly what this was: A human "Ant Farm" with a population inside it being experimented on. How else could they STILL be receiving brand new items while BEING INSIDE A SEALED OFF STRUCTURE with "No connections to the outside", as well as talk of an enemy nobody has ever seen, or knows the location of. Not to mention the STUPID IDEA of killing off the farmers who grew their food. But what really ticked me off was that THIS was organized along the lines of High School Cliques.. And I graduated from and stopped caring about " BEING COOL IN HIGH SCHOOL" over 40 years ago. I am currently in the process of writing out a story in which an elderly mechanic discovers a sealed off city like the one in this movie- I'm changing names in my version- and although they have advanced computer expertise, the inhabitants of the city are unable to understand how a mp4 player works or how the hero's wind-sailing land yacht works.

    Heard of it before but never had interest... but man. What a crappy idea of "factions"... selfless, peaceful, honest, intelligent and brave???? Just random traits toss in any way into a piece of paper. People went on cinemas to see these lazy written factions?? If it was the super overused 4 elements of nature it would have been less bad, or the also overused zodiac signs... but selfless, peaceful, honest, intelligent and brave?? SO random and boring.

    I think a case can be made that Divergent boiled the YA dystopia genre down to its barest of bones and simplest of concepts. In doing so, it killed the genre outright.

    I think the reason I loved the books when I read them was because I saw the classification of individuals within society as an allegory for mental health and many other kinds of division with society. I have autism, and the fact that people who don't conform to restrictive social norms were seen as dangerous really got to me. Seeing that the first book was written in 3 weeks means that I'm probably adding that level of thought to it when the writer didn't, but I enjoyed the books.

    They should have made the ending something like “well city x did poorly, let’s restart with city y and make an adjustment” that way we would have a satisfying ending. It’s disappointing and shows nothing our characters did matters but it’s satisfying because there are no more loose ends. It’s one of those things were you live the movie and even though the ending is sad or unsatisfying (like Infinity War or even arguably Endgame) it is still a good ending. Make it a tragic ending that way you don’t have to worry about squeezing another movie in there but if this movie does well you can.

    This book could be written by those "RPG makers" you simply choose names and some aspects of the lore, and the software just crumble them all in a standard narrative like those you see in a bunch of games these days. Honestly, if books, and movies, were dependent on quality, half of the authors and directors would not make anything anymore. That applies to music, to software, to politics. And young people seem fond of those things all over the globe. While old people use this to put marketable incapable people in proeminence because they then will depend on their money and power to keep that position, as they cant compete by themselves with their ability. That is why musicians of today cant sing or play instruments, actors cant act, writers cant write, and movies are mostly the same just changing shapes and names. I guess it is "the future" we built last 20 years.

    Another thing that bothered me, and maybe this was already addressed in the book but it's been a while, was that the mind control serum was only supposed to have an effect on dauntless right? And that's why it didn't work on divergents. But what about other types of people who didn't get dauntless or divergent in the test but chose dauntless anyway? Why wouldn't they be immune? And if it DOES work on them qnd only doesn't work on divergents, why not just brainwash the sefless faction into handing over control without murder?? ???? ?

    I don't think my girlfriend and I will forget about the existence of Divergent. We like watching shitty movies like this or 50 Shades to make fun of them. There's a line in the third movie that we quote all the time. We watched the Spanish dub, so this is probably different in the original voices, but after they escape the city, Four says "Come on, it's this way". How do you know the way? It makes no sense and we found it very funny.

    Another reason why it failed is that the market was flooded suddenly with movies that based off of a book series...3 large movies...The Hunger Games, Divergent, and the Maze Runner. By the time Divergent should have been filming the 4th movie, the general public was moving on to new movies. And the Maze runner had to stall production of it's last movie since the lead actor broke a bone. People were simply ready to move on....

    What I thought was interesting was 1) each faction is the extreme of each. They actually have drugs that force people to do the extremes, for example for the truth one you cant even tell white lies, you have to be brutally honest and are basically subjects to truth serum. Same with the others. 2) THEY KILL THE MAIN CHARACTER. But this is only from the books. Never seen the movies. Most of the time, movies adaptations of books aren't as good as the books in my opinion.

    I wrote the following like 5yrs ago but it seems appropriate still: "I know this is old but damn it I have to vent too. I felt like the first two books told a story that was in progress already when the book begins. The story was then ended in an ambiguous way with the overall story continuing without us watching. In short, we got a glimpse of life here and that was it. Is it satisfying? Not really. But I would've rather had an ambiguous ending than the garbage that was the third book. I honestly believe that the author wrote a long story that was split into two books and someone somewhere said "We're gonna need a third book. The trilogy is where the money is." So she pumped out a FUCK YOU final book that she didn't want to write in the first place. Otherwise how does she just disregard every characterization that she stuck with so well the entire first 2/3? UGH. Fuck Allegiant."
