This is a prime example of the Village Voice's supercilious, self-aggrandizing, "I'm sooooo 'Village Voice' and therefore I hate everything that others like" tendency in its movie reviews. Amy Nicholson, we get it...you didn't like the movie (or perhaps feared that with any positivity, you'd lose your "Village Voice cred)." You have some very valid points on the inconsistencies in portrayals of Veronica Roth's dystopian world, but overall, your review is utterly refutable because you're an admitted "spoilsport."
Negative reviews carry much less weight when they're uninformed. Perhaps if you had educated yourself on the literary series behind this book, you could have provided a more knowledgable, thought-provoking criticism of this movie. You could've picked apart its weaknesses with a full understanding of the original narrative, thus validating your questionable assessment of "Divergent" as a bad film, instead of throwing out knee-jerk phrases that sound something akin to a college freshman home for the weekend, doing laundry at her folks' house while telling her high-school sister that she's just 'soooooo immature.' But then again, maybe that's the language you thought would sink in for those teeneage girls you addressed at the end?
