Just a girl spreading the word about all the fun (and probably nerdy) things to do in Sydney!

No faction is safe Which would you choose?
Five factions divide the city and rule the way of life, what were to happen if those factions suddenly split?

Which faction would you choose?


For all of you who have read the book Divergent you will love the movie, it really does bring the book to life by following the plot and even having lines from the book. Which is such a refreshing change after seeing some movies that are completely and totally different from the original which tends to just leave fans running.

Divergent is definitely well done, although I will admit it is a little long, it's a whopping two and a half hour long movie. This is both good and bad though, good because it allows the whole book to be set properly without skipping parts, bad because it may feel a little slow at times, especially when there is a realisation to be made.

I will admit I'm a bit biased because I completely adored the book series but if you have never read the book and are wondering if this movie is for you this movie has action, romance, a big giant secret and some good twists and turns along the way. The only downside in my opinion is that some of the revelations and character development is not as easily seen in the movie as it is in the book, none-the-less it's still obvious enough that audience members won't go about asking "Why in the world did he do that?"

Definitely a good movie, it has enough action to keep you in suspense and enough intrigue to keep you interested. I'd recommend watching it, but I really really believe that you'd get a lot more out of it if you've read the book first, as there really is a type of joy of seeing a great book come to life as a movie.
