Here’s my thoughts about the Divergent movie. Yes, I’ve read the book.
"I might be in love with you."
These are some of the things they cut out in the movie. Nevertheless, I think they did well and it was great. Yes, they changed some things. Yes, they added some scenes that weren’t in the book. But the essence of the story is still there. I would’ve been disappointed if my mom didn’t remind be that it was a MOVIE and not a BOOK. There will ALWAYS be differences.
Plus, Shailene Woodley and Theo James are just adorable. I actually think those two should be together, for real. The whole cast did their part as well, and they were all amazing.
I wouldn’t say the movie was perfect. I wouldn’t also say it was bad. And if they’d ask me, I’d tell them they did great but they have to improve and do a lot better on the next one, if ever they’ll do the sequel.
If you’ve read the book and you’re going to see the movie, TRY to take your mind off the book and focus on the movie. I know it’s hard, but it’ll help you appreciate the movie more. And, don’t compare, just observe. Because the books will always be better ;)
This is just my opinion though, I wouldn’t say I’m right or wrong. So, respect begets respect. Keep your comments to yourself :)
