For months, fans of the “Divergent” trilogy have been anxiously awaiting the release of the movie based on the first book, with fingers crossed that it wouldn’t be ruined by its journey through Hollywood.
And though the professionals were already quibbling yesterday over whether the film was a thrilling success or a bloated flop, the real reckoning is happening on twitter as we speak, where fans who flocked to the midnight premiere are sharing their thoughts on seeing this beloved story on the big screen.
Anticipation Was Running High
Guy co-worker: "I just can't concentrate on anything until after the Divergent movie comes out."

Although Divergent was a good movie by itself, if you read and loved the book be prepared to be severely disappointed/pissed..

Meanwhile, The Franchise Has At Least One New Fan
Ddnt know what Divergent was until I saw the movie. Better than Hunger Games in my opinion. #Divergent 👍
