Let’s face it: when Divergent first came out, we all compared it to The Hunger Games. It’s pretty hard not to with such similar plots! Well, our fave YouTube stars, the Honest Trailers guys, have now put together their opinion on the film in their latest installment and, yes, they’re spot on as always.
“Wait, guys, we’ve done this one already. It’s the Hunger Games,” voiceover guy John says, cutting off the trailer. “It looks and sounds exactly like the Hunger Games.”
But that’s not all. John later points out many strange plot points including the million different names one must remember from this film (John even mixes in Harry Potter names, just to see if you’re paying attention) and star Shailene Woodley’s familiar male co-stars. If you count them all, there are three actors in this film that she has had on-screen romances with including Ansel Elgort from The Fault In Our Stars…who plays his brother in Divergent. Yep, that’s weird.
John’s ultimate point is, though, Divergent is really just Not The Hunger Games…but it’s pretty darn close. Watch the Honest Trailer for the movie below!Tweet
