MOVIE REVIEW: DIVERGENT (2014)
“DIVERGENT” (2014) PRESS REVIEW
An industry professional told me months ago not to miss the media screening of DIVERGENT, if there’s ever going to be one.
There was one eventually, and now you’d be asking me if it were any good.
For its entertainment value, I cannot fathom any complaints, to be devoutly honest.
The production is vivid, engaging and well worth seeing.
But if you enjoy digging dirt, you will be confounded with your own expert findings, but really, nothing serious.
DIVERGENT has SHAILENE WOODLEY together with THEO JAMES as a screen couple.
It has been reported that they are going to be groomed by Hollywood to be the next “best things” around. Charming.
They are competently supported by luminous veterans such as KATE WINSLET, ASHLEY JUDD and MAGGIE Q, among others.
DIVERGENT is an absorbing actioner set in a world where people are divided into distinct factions based on human virtues.
Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley) is warned from the start that she is Divergent and will never fit into any one group.
Later she discovers a conspiracy by a faction leader (Kate Winslet) whose ulterior motive is to destroy all Divergents,
Tris then meets the hunk called Four (Theo James) and together they set to tackle the situation before it’s too late. Not before both of them grind and roar in sexual heat.
The plot is based on the popular
book series by Veronica Roth. The film director is Neil Burger.
In recent years, Dystopian young adult novels have garnered such explosive popularity among teenagers and young adults.
This genre demonstrates the bleakness of worlds with corrupt governments and complex characters.
Film studios are ready to “cash in” and adapt these novels (Divergent, Insurgent and Allegiant) onto the big screen.
The first movie in a trilogy, Divergent has already been positioned as the next Hunger Games. As indicated by the mood-and-tone.
The film is both riveting and provocative.
For those who love this genre of movie, it’s a must-see.
You’ll hold your breath from start to finish.
RATING: 3.5 out of 5
REALLY KOOL, right?
