Veronica Roth. It shows. The cultural narrative of the young phenom is a compelling one, but it can also be a lot of weight to put on shoulders that may not be ready to bear it. Roth's book isn't The Hunger Games, and the plethora of comparisons being made about the two is making Divergent's weaknesses all the more apparent. Sure, the choose-your-flavor cultural concept of Divergent is fun at first glance, but unlike Panem's critique of economic inequality and societal power, there's not much behind it; think about how the faction system works for too long, and it starts to fall apart.
Imagine the Council of Vocations in Ayn Rand's Anthem, but with social commentary about an inch deep.
That's exactly what happens as the book series progresses and closer examination of what's beneath the hood of Divergent leads to less and less satisfying answers. You could argue that this is simply proof of the story's commentary about the irreducibility of the human spirit, but its strawman approach to world-building proves little.
That's not to say that Roth won't go on to make many books of quality; there's imagination and promise in her work, but ultimately it's just that: promise, not skill. It is better, and fairer, perhaps, to view Divergent as her juvenilia, rather than hanging the mantle of The Hunger Games on shoulders too thin to carry it. At two-and-a-half hours, the movie version of Roth's work is fairly long—and it doesn't earn its size, nor does it make the most of it.
In its desire to be faithful to the book, it ends up doing too much, too insubstantially. Several of the most defining relationships and losses for Tris end up feeling rote; without her inner monologue to anchor the emotional significance, pivotal turning points feel mechanical rather than moving.

Christina gives an extra vial of memory serum to Four, for use against either Marcus his father or Evelyn his mother in the hopes of bringing an end to the conflict in the city.
Four decides to confront Evelyn. Taking Peter and the vial of memory serum, Four meets with his mother and gives her the option of drinking it, which will allow her to end the fighting, be born anew, and become his mother again.
She embraces Four without taking the serum. They meet with Johanna and Marcus to iron out an end to the conflict. On the way out of Erudite headquarters, Peter laments his bad behavior and violent tendencies which he knows will never change, and says he wants to take the memory serum to become a new person.
Four gives Peter the serum, erasing his mind for good. At the Bureau, Caleb is ready to sacrifice himself, but he and Tris, who accompanied him, are ambushed by Bureau guards.
Tris pulls her gun on Caleb and decides to carry out the mission herself, knowing that Caleb volunteered out of regret for his former actions rather than out of love for her.
She hopes that her resistance to serums will include the death variant. Not knowing if she will survive, Tris tells Caleb that if she does not return, he should tell Four she did not want to leave him.
Tris destroys the entrance to the Lab and is exposed to the death serum, but she survives. David came within the Lab and explains that her collusion with the genetically damaged did not go unnoticed. Determined to keep the order, David shoots Tris, who lunges for the memory serum and releases it. After being shot by David, she slowly slips into darkness until she sees her mother reach out for her and she then gladly accepts her mother's embrace, succumbing to her wounds and passing away.
Tobias, Peter, and Christina return to the compound and are told about Tris' death by Cara. Caleb gives him Tris' final message. Tobias is angered by the fact that Tris died for Caleb even after his betrayal. Before walking away, Caleb only replies that Tris never wanted to leave him.
Uriah is taken off life support - a decision made by Zeke and his mother - with Tobias still believing that Uriah's death was partially his fault. Tobias returns to his home in the old Abnegation sector.
After cutting his hair, Tobias is ready to use the memory serum on himself, hoping to rid the loss of Tris and Uriah from his memory. Christina walks in on him and convinces him to not use it, saying that Tris would want him to remember her. Acknowledging the need to move on, Tobias and Christina walk back together.
Two and a half years later, Chicago is finally at peace, with former faction members, factionless, compound members, and other outsiders moving in and out of the city.
