From what I have seen in the young adult book section at the store and library it is filled with vampire and dystopian novels, this comes from research I have done while searching for presents for family and friends kids. I am not a fan of youth fiction or comic book stories, but I had recorded this one as it was on poor peoples free tv, so thought I would give it a go.
So in this movie we get a futuristic Chicago which after a war has divided the population into five factions. Tris An aptitude test that should dictate which group she should belong to, shows that she has characteristics for a few of them, which makes her a divergent. Divergents are considered dangerous by the government, so she has to learn to conceal her abilities in order to survive.
So she gets lots of tight leather outfits, gets to run a lot, do some fighting, jump and then run some more. There doesn't appear to be a lot of sweating and lots of fabulous hair. You can tell who the baddies are because they scowl a lot and there are some lovely looking manboys as love interest, but you know who the true love is - he will be the one looking like he has stepped off the catwalk.
Like all good movies, you have to Wikipedia it to find out how much it made and this one made a whopping $288 million, so you know that the rest of the books in the movie will then be make into more spin off movies. I don't think I will be booking a seat at the cinema to see any more - I'll save it for the teenagers it was intended for. 2/5
