Much better than I thought it would be. Rotten Tomatoes initially gave this movie a critics review of 38% which has risen to 40% and an audience critic of 81% which is bit lower now. Reading the description of the books and how the society was divided I thought that it would be boring but it is not. It came across more to me as a coming of age story to me as "Tris" had to decide at age 16 whether to stay in the faction she was born or choose the one she wanted to be in. It is a huge decision as you do it once and there is no going back home to mommy and daddy. The entire concept is "faction over blood". Since the movie is based on a YA (young adult) trilogy there is the mandatory love interest. Again I liked how it was handled in the movie. No googy eyed looks at each other and no long drawn out scenes where either of the couple is so consumed by not being able to be with the object of their affection that all they do is mope around being miserable and trying to make everyone in the universe miserable also. When I went to see the movie I was surprised to see a slightly older audience. I excepted lots of teens and it was mostly adults and some brought their young kids. While there is violence in the film it is not at all bloody and while folks are shot you don't really see any blood. The movie is rated PG-13 but it is not going to shock young kids.
