One hour and a half of nothing
Fun premise, good actors, bad writing. This film seemed to have potential at the beginning but it quickly devolves into a trite action film. Ultimately it's very boring.
At first rather annoying in its heavy emphasis on reenactments, this movie ultimately proves fascinating, simply because the complicated, highly dramatic tale it tells still almost defies belief.
A clunky actioner with a handful of cool moments.
I're certainly saw DIVERGENT by Neil Burger.It is an action and science fiction film which was produced by Red Wagon Entertainment and Summit Entertenment in 2014 and lasted 139 min. This movie is set in Chiccago.It tells the story of Beatrice Prior played by Shailence Woodley .the story talks about Beatrice Prior, later known as Tris a girl who lives in a world with a very important rule faction that abides over and above any blood relation. Tris doesn't care for this rule and stands up against the system when her family is put in danger.This is a story about self-determination, betrayal, romance, war, and the importance of individual choice. I personally think it's exciting,fantastic and powerful movie.
Warning! Spoilers.So Ashley Judd wants a gun now? How and where did you get that gun, Ashley? Let's see if you learned anything from this story. Not going to bet on it, though.Another teen-hero story complete with plenty of plot holes, girl-power and silly love interests. People are herded into 5 different fractions to fit into a really dumb dystopian society. Some people "diverge" and do not fit in. One fraction naturally wants all power, so they try to wipe out the fraction that as been ruling by tradition. Cue young hero to expose it all.Perhaps workable as a popcorn movie for the younger crowd, however adults or younger people with some sort of attention span will be bored out of their minds.Passable performances by the two young main characters, poor/sad performances by the "big names", specially by Ashley Judd, but she never were that much of an actress anyway.
Even though the thoughts written here are relevant at any age of dating and the outcome being the same too that a relationship is not formed or even once the next best thing being in person sex for however long even if long term is the thought I must remember I'm over 60 years of age with some decreased looks and out of shape baggage that goes with it. If I think of twenty things to get someone to do something and even mention one outlet for her not to do so if that one is her wish even with only a 51 to 49 % advantage she'll probably just take that one outlet if she replies at all. This leads to a quick next thought. Not once in any fashion have I ever gotten a direct reply trying to intro or not much next after thoughts with electronic communication to the girl. Some responses of any kind have been detected by me but those ways currently are next to impossible for me to detect. Dating services of any fashion lead nowhere. I did get one response once about 7 years before the Internet existed joining a $700 plus dating service giving a in person application that lead to a car drive and a bar date. That was about the last time I think I had a date. Previous to that I had my share but this letter isn't a review of my life. The number one rule nowadays is that the girl must be lifetime money self sufficient living anywhere. That leads just about everyone out. Only 1 in 1000 are that way and the actresses of any fashion be it over twenty of them who weren't one of the 1 in 1000 used slut entertainment thoughts involving me to be a 1 in a 1000 self money sufficient person but the sad movie or singer concept to that is none of those girls thought that sharing their wealth with me was a requirement or even a intro one in person date let alone my preferred minimun requirement thought of 25 dates. So it's understood outthinking their thoughts of what is best for them or what they want or what they are willing to do is at least in my case impossible to outthink or even partially persuade. I'll just say the difference between me and you girl (any girl) is if the girl approached me by mail or in person giving her contact number she'd have to say next to nothing for me to reply if she was attractive and money self sufficient. But for those that weed out hundreds of suitors per day I've never known any of them to focus and when they focus their focus leads nowhere however public popular. I was going to write about 20 reasons why girls are into idiots but this email is already too long. You can though in the immediate future reach me at email@example.com There's my contact. Need I say again the difference between me and you girl (any girl). The sad fact is 9 out 10 movie concepts are light years from this letter style with many much more so than others yet those sort that yet detect me feel there is some sort of invite to them when there isn't. I could write pages about how mentally ill I would get getting involved with them. But this letter concept is not looking for dismissal with me and IMDb. I sort of had Ashley Judd in mind when writing this being more positive than negative but more or less focus writing to a star is banned here. Personally it's been decades when getting annoyed by people it's by those you can't find however immediate the interpretation and with I don't even know if they qualify for I wouldn't want to know you or them even if I did. Biggest mistake in writing these emails is if you know that any response if at all will lead you to get mentally ill if I involve myself hundreds of times over with them and not much else especially in money concept or marriage dating then why try at all from the get go. Even at the best if a romantic attitude is established it will probably only be done in some group thought fashion and will having nothing to do with being a couple. That's about the only way current Hollywood fashion stays in fashion. I current thought about Ashley is I'm over 50% positive on my approach to her but there is too she'd have to really a lot kiss my over a long time in person for me to really fall. She with me has a current personality interpretation of that ain't going to happen. It's more her charm with me doesn't much get past bye bye soon enough. I'm not looking for either for the girl with I'm not bluffing but I'm gorgeous attitude and she expects me to sex her big time a half hour minimum everyday. Those types only have a place in my life on paid for out of state DVD XXX delivery for I'm not into intensive in person long girl selfish sex or even quickie looking just for a daddy type girl. I did consider rhyming divergent with Queen machine laundry detergent but doesn't that seem corny?
Divergent has been compared to other best selling film adaptation before it such as the Hunger Games. Having no prior knowledge about the Divergent film series, one would not be as disappointing if did not enjoy the film. This film is best suited and aimed for those fans that enjoy films as the Hunger Games, Twilight or Maze Runner, and we can see why. As these are more teenage, young adult based theme films. The Divergent Series has done well box office wise which is why it is a trilogy. About the film, the effects and visuals as well done, the presence and lead portrayal of Shailene Woodley is good as she is a likable lead to root for. Divergent is quite long and seems to drag at times though there are some scenes of entertainment in general. It is quite predictable and not as suspenseful or thrilling as one had assumed. Towards the end half, the film plays out more like a romance love story (as we all saw the romance between Tris and Four happening) in which it starts to go slowly downhill and become a little more boring in regards. The film also doesn't show as to why there are fractions of the world split, we are just to assume something happened in the beginning. Dystopian futuristic movies have a certain praise as we enjoy, but without much detail, it becomes a little wondering as to why. In general the film features a lot of stunts, jumping around, running, fighting and other forms of survival.
