★★☆☆☆It's surely a sign that you're getting old when you can sit through a film like Divergent (2014) - the new dystopian adventure based on the bestselling young adult book by Veronica Roth - and realise that you just didn't get it. Though visually impressive, this sci-fi extravaganza, directed by Neil Burger and starring Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Kate Winslet and Ashley Judd, lacks the soul to make the viewer really care. In a post-apocalyptic future the world is divided into factions and living in what remains of the city of Chicago. 'Dauntless' is the group assigned to protect the others. It's also the group which plucky protagonist Tris (Woodley) is desperate to be a part of.
