An acrostic of the first letters of the faction names, Factionless/Abnegation/Candor/Amity/Dauntless/Erudite, spells FACADE. Insisting that people fall into just 6 rigid categories certainly is a facade that misled everyone. See more »

This might be the worst movie with a budget that I've ever seen. I love sci-fi and foreign films, this should've been perfect. However, nowhere is it stated that this is anything than a regular sci-fi movie, but it's more like a really crappy comic magazine with a plot that was interesting at first but then turns into something more childish than anything I could've imagined. The rest is worse: this is truly a Hollywood USA film, so you have those barking voices, flashing mish-mash fight sequences; and the trandemark, never-ending scenes where men bulge their eyes and grind their teeth, signifying some sort of affect, anger for example, or pain. The movie is awfully dragging because of this... this nuance seems to be part of the overall 'twilight' style of this sort of flick. As far as any meaningful drama, well, as you can imagine, there is none. This flick is like a mild toochache, really. The semi-plot is overly complex but also difficult. If you like the Cassern anime or live-action film, you may like this. I did not.
