  • Except for Kate Winslet's fearsome turn as a villain, the only terror Divergent roused in me was that the drag-ass thing would never end. Sorry, I'm a Candor. show more

  • This society makes no sense except as a metaphor. The social layout of Divergent was supposedly devised so as to maintain peace, but putting people into airtight factions guarantees conflict. show more

  • Despite two strong lead performances and a welcome dose of female empowerment, this somber tale feels too familiar and formulaic. show more
