I liked this better than Hunger Games. Somehow, made more sense (to me).
The climax though was a major let down. I did not understand why they needed to switch off the Dauntless members and turn them into drones? Couldn't the orders just be enforced / dictated? Couldn't the uprising come from the Dauntless faction independently (backed by Erudite)? Would have made a better plot (in my view).
Extremely disappointed with the final bits of the film. The gun-shooting sequence featuring mother and daughter against the Dauntless soldiers was… err… idiotic. In fact, throughout the film, all the interactions between the mother and daughter were ridiculous.
The last 20 minutes or so just ruined a reasonably good film (for me).
