divergentAfter a war, Chicago has been walled off and its citizens divided into five factions; teenager Beatrice Prior (Shailene Woodley) chooses which one to belong to and discovers a conspiracy. A dystopian sci-fi adventure targeted at teen girls with a strong female character fighting an authoritarian leader ā€“ itā€™s impossible not to draw comparisons toĀ The Hunger Games, and this one falls short because of its underdeveloped story and leaden pacing. Woodley is good though, and a few scenes stand out, such as a nightly zip-line rideĀ through a post-apocalyptic Chicago.

2014-U.S. 140 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed byĀ Neil Burger. Novel: Veronica Roth. Cast: Shailene Woodley (Beatrice ā€œTrisā€ Prior), Theo James (Tobias ā€œFourā€ Eaton), Kate Winslet (Jeanine Matthews), Ashley Judd, Jai Courtney, Ray Stevensonā€¦ ZoĆ« Kravitz, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Maggie Q, Mekhi Phifer.

Trivia: Aaron Eckhart was allegedly considered for a role. Followed by two sequels, starting withĀ Insurgent (2015).
