Number of Times Seen – 1 (27 Jul 2014)
Brief Synopsis – In a futuristic society where everyone is separated into groups based on their abilities, a young girl must decide where to place herself when she comes of age.
My Take on it – It seems that lately, teen themed futuristic stories have become quite popular and with the way each series gets snatched up and made into movies it’s surprising to me that one could be better than the rest.
This is a movie that I’ve been interested in seeing for months and finally got the chance.
I’m already familiar with two of the main actors Shailene Woodley and Anson Elgort from when they acted together in another teen based movie this summer, The Fault in our Stars (2014). They have better chemistry as lovers than siblings, but we’ll see how they are in the sequel to this next year.
I liked the way that we learn about their society and I found the whole premise and story to be captivating and engaging and I cant wait for the next installment.
This, IMHO, is slightly better and more engaging than the Hunger Games trilogy.
Bottom Line – Story that touches on similar themes to the Hunger Games series but is in my opinion slightly superior. Likeable characters and a captivating storyline. Definitely interested in seeing where the next chapters will be heading. Highly Recommended
Rating – Oscar Worthy
