I wasn’t expecting great things from Divergent, although the book was a lark. It’s a well made movie, about as good as it could possibly be.

The director lost his nerve (or feared for his PG-13 rating) in the boot camp assault, and that’s politically unfortunate, but perhaps the plot can’t really bear that additional weight. It certainly keeps moving.

Ruined Chicago never looked better.
