Divergent (Blu-Ray): Review

The Film

Owning the Divergent Blu-Ray is a great way to start your collection for the series early, and find the time to watch all the bonus features and listen to the several audio commentaries.

Second time around, the film holds up to multiple viewings, allowing one to spot some of the foreshadowing, and spend some time admiring the incredible detail of the constumes and sets.

Disc And Bonus Features

With the vast amount of storage space, there is no excuse for compressing footage too much, and Divergent is certainly compressed at a high bitrate, meaning even up-close there are no visible artefacts to be seen.

Bonus features include a gallery of posters and marketing images, a selection of trailers, a vast amount of bonus featurettes, with everything from a detailed look at the costumes, to scouting the locations for the film, preparing the actors for the physical aspects of their fight scenes, deleted scenes, and turning today’s Chicago into the future world of the film. Not forgeting the music video from the soundtrack. There are two audio commentaries for the film, brining a host of additional information to the viewer.

The Divergent Blu-Ray contains so many hours of extra features, and so much information in the audio commentaries, it is sure to thrill both the movie fans and aspiring filmmakers alike.

Divergent is available to purchase in South Africa now.
