Movie Reviews

  • yet director Neil Burger seems so concerned with laying franchise groundwork that he neglects to create an engaging standalone movie, and "Divergent's" uncertain sense of setting, bloated plot, drab visual style and solid yet underwhelming lead turns
    by Andrew Barker [Variety ]
  • there's a lot of intellectual aerobics going on in this one, but that doesn't usually win over fans, or make them feverish
    by John Anderson [Thompson on Hollywood ]
  • the movie ironically sacrifices all momentum in favor of a long series of physical tests
    2 of 4 by Eric Henderson [Slant Magazine ]
  • overall I was delighted with "Divergent" and am eager to see how the remaining two films continue to take us on Tris' adventure
    3.5 of 4 by Bill Zwecker [Chicago Sun-Times ]
  • despite two strong lead performances and a welcome dose of female empowerment, this somber tale feels too familiar and formulaic
    2.5 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • a rocky start to the Next Big Thing in YA movie franchises
