Catching Divergent *Spoiler*

| December 9, 2014 | 0 Comments

I recently watched the movie “Divergent”. It was originally a book, but before I got to read it, I had already bought the movie.  I actually liked it a lot, but I’ve  heard that the book is way better.

So after the war, the government split everyone up into 5 factions, Dauntless (brave), Candor (honest), Amity (peaceful), Erudite (smart), and Abnegation (selfless). Everyone is born into one but there’s one test that determines where you go next. When Beatrice Prior went in for the test, she didn’t just end up with Abnegation.. but with two other factions. It turned up “Inconclusive”, which was called Divergent and was very rare. If the government ever found out, she’d be killed.

After choosing Dauntless at the ceremony, she was trained for weeks, to gain muscle and see how much she can endure. Everyone thought she would be one of the people to become faction-less, but she actually made it. She later falls in love with Four, her trainer. They are both suspicious about large shipments from Erudite to Dauntless. When everyone has to get a new vaccination, the next morning everyone’s mind was controlled and started to head towards Abnegation to take out any Divergent.

Obviously it hadn’t affected Tris because it only worked on people who weren’t Divergent, that’s how they’d find all the Divergents if they weren’t brainwashed like the rest of them. Come to find out Four was Divergent too. When they’re both caught in Abnegation, Tris’s heroic mother saved her from being executed and giving her own life to save hers. Tris stopped all the brainwashed Dauntless in time before they started executing all the Abnegation’s. Four and Tris had to flee to the train and onto the next journey that would come tomorrow.

After I saw it I thought it was a really good movie. I liked all the action, the romance, and sadness all in one. I think it showed how people are scared of the people that can do unheard of things or what people can be capable of. Although, I do wish it explained what happened with the war and why they built a big fence outside of Chicago. I also wish it explained the story line more, but over all I really liked it. So if you haven’t read or seen the movie, I think you should because it’s crazy good.
