The Book Was Better: The Maze Runner Review
How "Divergent" Turned Into A Disaster
This is just a fact of life. Of course, there are a lot of reasons why, mostly related to the film's budget, run time, and the desire to move a story along on screen. And while you have no problem spending three days curled up with a great book, there are few movies that are worth three hours of your viewing time — which is why the film's creators typically cut things that aren't vital to the story and tweak things that are but may be told in another way. This can result in what seems like a totally different story even if the major parts haven't changed. It's like when you swap out healthier ingredients in a recipe; you know you're still eating a brownie, but you also know you're not eating a brownie -brownie. The last book in the trilogy was spliced up into two movies, which is not surprising as it's basically Hollywood's favorite way to end a series.
In this world of remakes and reboots, it may be that nothing is actually dead forever. But as of now, it's safe to say that Divergent is as dead as it gets. The Divergent movies — based on Veronica Roth's trilogy — were supposed to be the next blockbuster young adult franchise. Summit Entertainment bought the rights in when the studio was nearing the end of its streak with the multibillion-dollar Twilight movies. The next year, when Summit itself was bought by Lionsgate, that meant that The Hunger Games studio had bought the Twilight studio, merging the two companies that had led the YA boom. The combined studio would be betting on Divergent as its next book-to-screen success, and it seemed like a slam dunk. That was then.
