So I wasn't planing on reviewing this movie but I finally watched it and I have lots of thoughts on it so here we go!
My initial thoughts are that it was dull and boring. I honestly don't know how it was over 2 hours long! It felt like next to nothing happened! I thought of many things they missed or messed up and I don't know what they did to make it so loooong! I literally fell asleep the first night I tried to watch it and had to watch the end the next night.
I'll start off by saying that I loved Four and Tris for the most part, Caleb and Christina too. I didn't really like the people playing Eric and Peter mainly though because they didn't seem creepy and...mean and violent enough to me. Also like all three actors plating Will, Al, and Peter looked pretty much the same! I've read the book and had issues figuring out who was who, my brother was so very confused as he hasn't read the books. Also, Edward is mentioned once or twice, no Uriah(which I knew going into it but still pisses me off because he's my favorite character) no Lynn, no Zeke(at least they aren't mentioned by name from what I saw). Basically all the side characters, sucked. They didn't get enough screen time, I wasn't surprised or horrified when Al almost kills(so no almost rape? Understandable.) Tris, I wasn't devastated when she killed Will...I felt nothing and my brother who hasn't read the book so didn't see it coming, didn't even realize that(Will and Tris) were friends or who Al was!
Four was badass, Tris was meh. A lot of her fighting scenes sucked, they were so lame. I don't know what was going on with what they did with her mom(the way she snuck in to see Tris) but it was overly dramatic and don't even get me started on the scene where her mom dies. She's cradling her body, while getting shot at and she screams at them to "Stop. Stop!" I literally started laughing hysterically, like you couldn't convince Will to back off, your mom was just killed by these people and so you scream at them to stop. It was dramatic and just so lame.
I really don't know how this movie was so long, I can't comprehend it. They spent next to no time on any of the friendships or side characters, there wasn't even much time spent on Four and her relationship. If I remember correctly(it's been awhile since I've read the book) they skipped a few of her fears and they didn't explain that whole thing well, I had to pause the movie to explain it to my brother and dear lord let's not discuss the horribleness of the scene where her fear is being "intimate" with Four...just so very cringe worthy.
Overall - While not as bad as Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince or Percy Jackson, it was no Hunger Games. It was just boring in my opinion and this book should not have made a boring movie.
Have you seen Divergent? Thoughts?
Can we please discuss?
Mainly the atrocious fear of intimacy scene?
