Divergent, 2014. A dystopian society maintains order by eliminating people who don't conform.
Directed by Neil Burger. Written by Evan Daugherty & Vanessa Taylor, based on a book by Veronica Roth. Starring Shailene Woodley, with Theo James & Kate Winslet.
Special effects/design: B
Enjoyment: Painless. There's nothing good in it that isn't shamelessly stolen from Hunger Games, and there's nothing original in it that isn't nonsense. But they made a pretty okay movie, considering what they had to work with. C
