    Reasons why Divergent doesn’t deliver is that the journey is not powerful enough. It loses track and seems purposeless soon enough. Except for the tests, where a state of hallucination is achieved, the movie does not justify its sci-fi tag.

  • Though derivative, Divergent is yet another example of how female actors can carry a big budget film on their shoulders and if not for anything else, this genre needs to be given due credit for introducing strong and gutsy women as sole leads who can start revolutions if they wanted to.
