So I have managed to watch this now and I have to say I quite enjoyed it.
Shailene Woodley is wonderful. And there are plenty of eye candy moments. I haven’t finished the book yet though. In this case I wanted to watch the film first. Often if I read the book first I get grumpy with the differences.
They changes have tightened the story for visual impact and a whole sub-plot story line has been minimised. Putting aside the book for a moment, the film is enjoyable, action packed and open ended to leave the option open for further adaptations. I really liked it for what it was, but think I’m glad I watched before reading. I understand why fans of the book were frustrated with the adaptation but I’ve seen enough of them that I know to not expect the same thing I picture in my head whilst reading.
I’ll finish up with one of my have scenes.
