If you've read the books I think you'll like the movie. If you haven't read the books you should just go read them and see the movie. I was pleasantly surprised that I liked the actors in it. At first I wasn't sure, especially with Triss the main girl but I thought she did really well.
I think it's natural when I'm reading a book to relate myself to the characters and find commonalities or to take on different traits and become the protagonist in my mind. On paper I thought it would be cool to be brave and be a member of the Dauntless faction (read the books), but on screen there is NO way I would ever join that faction, not in a million years. I would not nor could not, jump from a moving train onto the roof of a building. I would take a second lap around the train track while sitting in the corner sucking my thumb and coming to terms with the fact that I would now be factionless (homeless). I would not nor could not jump from the top of that building into a vast expanse without knowing what was waiting for me at the bottom. Nope, not gonna do it. Peace out homies have fun bludgeoning each other.
Nichap and I were discussing what faction we would be in afterwards and while she did jump over a puddle that was pretty large it wasn't quite Dauntless material. Last night after dinner I decided to be Dauntless and had my mom roll the car with the door open and ran to jump in it- in a pencil skirt no less. So it just goes to show that I'm closer to Dauntless than Nicole is (Sorry Nichap).
Overall we decided Amity would be the best fit for both of us. They're kind of like hippies out there and we live in Whatcom County aka hippie central.
I even took a quiz and got Amity
You got: Amity
Amity is the faction dedicated to peacefulness, kindness, friendship, and forgiveness. They believe in love, not war, and their faction is truly democratic, voting on everything they do. They will often lie to avoid confrontation and their bread is embedded with peace serum, preventing Amity members from fighting. Their attire consists of red and yellow and their substance in the Choosing Ceremony is soil.
You can take it too!
While being a tough beast would be kind of fun for a few minutes I would grow tired of the constant commotion and the hostile environment. So Amity it is.
