The movie divergent surprised me

I loved watching twilight when it first came out but then they had like ten other movies that followed it. It got a little out of hand. Ever since then I've been reluctant to view movies that are the beginning of a long movie franchise like hunger games, etc. This movie is finally out on pay per view so I decided to give it a go. I expected it to be a movie that appealed to a younger generation of people, and even though I could kind of see little parts that you could tell were put in to appeal to the kids, I really enjoyed it.

There is a lot of adventure in this movie and it shows a girl becoming independent and brave, tough and ruthless; it's awesome! It shows the way things could actually be in a futuristic world. I was able to identify with the five factions that they were divided into because it seems like those categorize the types of people that there are in today's world.

I expected to be bored, and waiting for this movie to be over so I could say I watched it and just get it over with, but today I found myself wanting to watch it again. It was completely unexpected! Several people who watched the movie exclaimed that it was nowhere near as good as the book, but, nothing ever is. I never read the book, and I didn't have high expectations of it, so with those two factors in play, it was a really good movie.

I read the book series already and I hope to see the movie on netflix. The movie trailer did not look so good as the people were a bit too pretty. I guess that's the curse of Hollywood.

Yea, the movie trailer didn't really cut it for me either, it is indeed the curse of hollywood.

I agree with you. I actually (intended) to miss this movie in the big screen because it didn't strike me. But when I was able to see it a couple of weeks ago, I can't wait for the sequel.
