New Divergent Movie Got Mixed Reviews From Top Critics


New Divergent movie got mixed reviews from top critics. Summit Entertainment (Lionsgate) released their new action/adventure flick, “Divergent,” into theaters today,March 21st, and the top critics have submitted their reviews. Overall, the film got pretty mixed reviews with a 49 score out of a possible 100 across 29 reviews over at We’ve posted a few snippets from a couple of the critics,below.

The movie stars: Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ashley Judd, Jai Courtney, Ray Stevenson, Zoё Kravitz, Miles Teller, Tony Goldwyn, Ansel Elgort, Maggie Q, Mekhi Phifer, and Kate Winslet.

Bill Zwecker at the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it a great 88 score, stating, “The strength of Burger’s movie is the fact that a non-reader of Roth’s work can enjoy Divergent and not be confused by any aspect of the storyline.” Owen Gleiberman at Entertainment Weekly, gave it an 83. He said: “Woodley, through the delicate power of her acting, does something compelling: She shows you what a prickly, fearful, yet daring personality looks like when it’s nestled deep within the kind of modest, bookish girl who shouldn’t even like gym class.”

Michael O’Sullivan from the Washington Post, gave it a 75, stating, “Director Neil Burger (“Limitless”) has crafted a popcorn flick that’s leaner, more propulsive and more satisfying than the bestseller that inspired it.” Claudia Puig over at USA Today, gave it a 63,stating, “Despite two strong lead performances and a welcome dose of female empowerment, this somber tale feels too familiar and formulaic.”

Kenneth Turan from the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 60 grade. He stated: “It’s an acceptable, play-it-safe version of the first volume in the hugely popular Veronica Roth-written trilogy.” Ty Burr at the Boston Globe, gave it a 50, stating, “Divergent is almost good enough to make you forget what a cynical exercise it is on every possible level. The original 2011 young adult novel by Veronica Roth — reasonably engrossing, thoroughly disposable — reads exactly like what it is: an ambitious young author’s attempt to re-write “The Hunger Games” without bringing the lawyers down on her head.”

Mick LaSalle from the San Francisco Chronicle, gave it another 50 score, stating, “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.”

Michael Phillips at the Chicago Tribune, gave it a 50, stating, “The generic bulk of Divergent hits its marks and moves on.” Lou Lumenick at the New York Post, gave it a 50 grade. He said: “Divergent is a clumsy, humorless and shamelessly derivative sci-fi thriller set in a generically dystopian future.”
