The action sequences in which Tris has to prove herself, even against her will, have a pure vertiginous vigor that feels like a dramatized funhouse ride. They take place high above the ruins of Chicago, involving leaps onto shards of concrete, a sky-bound rock climb, Tarzan-like vine-swinging, and a variety of a fight (too good to spoil) that’s a perfect mirror of adolescence.
