    Looks like shit tbo.

    Any movie that scores less than 60% on rotten tomatoes is a huge red flag (I generally prefer movies over 80%). And this movie got >>> 41% which is AWFUL.

    Rotten tomatoes isn't perfect but most of the time they are spot on. And I don't just rely on rotten tomatoes I read through all the feedback on imdb, youtube, I see WHO is posting positive comments, how old they are, whether it's girls boys women or men.... how stupid or smart they sound (by their writing).

    The problem with sci fi / action movies is that kids and younger people in general will like ANYTHING.

    But when you grow up, you start to pay attention to things like writing, directing, casting, acting, etc etc. You learn that a really "good movie" generally doesn't receive mixed reviews. Like look at "Edge Of Tomorrow". That movie didn't really get mixed reviews. Nearly everyone who saw it (including myself) liked it. But I've seen a SHITLOAD of bad reviews for Divergent. People labeling it a "Mediocre made for teens tv movie at best". With poor writing, directing, acting. Too many people saying its predictable. Too many saying it's all shitty action scenes with no substance. Or that it's a "girls movie".


    I've actually read the feedback on this movie 3 different days when I was looking for something new to see. And all 3 times the reviews turned me off.

    However, I will say this. Because it did better on IMDB than rotten, and because there are SOME male adults who actually seemed to like it, I will watch it tonight.

    I just have this feeling though, because I saw "Edge Of Tomorrow" this past weekend and that movie was AWESOME.... that this movie won't even come close. I will waste 2 1/2 hours tonight watching what I expect to be garbage and I'll write a review tomorrow to let people know what I think.

    And while I'm at it, I'll recommend some new movies that are truly worth seeing:

    1) Edge Of Tomorrow
    2) Joe
    3) Cheap Thrills
    4) Blue Ruin
    5) Captain America: The Winter Soldier
    6) Dawn Of The Planet of The Apes
    7) X-men - Days Of Future Past
    8) Bad Neighbors.

    That's it. Maybe I'll add Divergent to the list tomorrow but I doubt it. :)

    if some one want to review it from its Trailer then , they cant even rate it 5/10
    but when you see movie actually, you will get the content & thought
    any way, as its a sci fi type,so some creativity required
    just before the edge of the end of this movie,some facts may not be acceptable or baseless or uncleared
    but all its a good movie to watch in 2014

    The movie is actually not that bad. If you enjoyed the Hunger Games, this is going to be entertaining enough.
    While there are a ton of loop holes, I still watched it till the end and it was worth the watch.

    Watching movies based on rotten tomatoes scores. Better look users scores not critics, there are very good movies that get low scores by critics, but are loved by viewers

    No thanks. A few months ago, when it was at the movies,
    I totally skipped that one. Watch "Walk of Shame" instead!

    There was too much teen drama - good for audience, consisting of 16 year old girls but I didn't like it. The idea with the division of the people was cool, but not so original. Overall - it deserves it's IMDB rating, although I expected a little bit more.
