Divergent is a really basic and distinctive movie, which is why many devoted fans are still clamoring for more. To be honest, there aren’t many films like Divergent. However, here are our top suggestions for movies like Divergent! Divergent, a sci-fi movie released in 2014, casting the stunning, Shailene Woodley, who played her role magnificently as Beatrice Prior while Theo James played the role of Four. There is also Kate Winslet who played an exciting support role! This was a film adaptation of the Novel ‘Divergent’, which did very well.

This is, without a doubt, one of the best movies I’ve ever watched. Guys, Veronica Roth isn’t fooling around in this!  She has painstakingly created a world that will captivate you. While disliking the folks you’re reading about, you’ll be wondering which faction you’d fit into. The world-building is so thorough that it felt like I was watching a movie in my head, and I wasn’t puzzled in the least. Despite this, the picture received a lot of criticism and unfavorable reviews, primarily because the plot was unclear to the audience, the world’s structure was difficult to grasp, and a variety of other issues. It may be science fiction, but the film’s central theme is the age-old teen dilemma: who am I?

If it were up to me to choose, I’d probably go with Bafflement or Exasperation. I understand why moviegoers are racing to see The Muppets and The Lego Movie after spending the greater part of five hours enjoying Divergent and Only Lovers Left Alive. Having said that, I would still return.
