Maybe Shailene Is Not The Next J-Law

Shailene Woodley (pictured) has been hyped as “the next Jennifer Lawrence,” but Woodley’s new movie, “Divergent,” is getting knocked by reviewers big-time. Variety says the movie’s ‘uncertain sense of setting, bloated plot, drab visual style and solid yet underwhelming lead turns from Woodley and Theo James don’t necessarily make the best case for series newcomers.’ Further: ‘Even though it stretches to nearly two-and-a-half hours and concludes with an extended gun battle, by the time “Divergent” ends, it still seems to be in the process of clearing its throat.’
