This weekend David and I went and saw Divergent in theaters. The quick take on the movie is that it was an enjoyable ride. It was not the best movie that I have been through, but it kept me entertained for two and a half hours. Now I admit that I am a bit biased because I read all three books in a week. I really enjoyed the book series and in some ways I will admit it tainted my view of the movie because I knew what was going to happen beyond the first movie. Knowing where it all goes definitely made it a different experience for me. At the same time I thought the movie did a good job of capturing the story and general feeling of the first book.
There were certain scenes that they changed to up the action, but overall I thought they kept pretty faithful to the book. The two places that I found the most changes were in the mental spaces and some of the violence. (Spoilers for Divergent after the jump.)
