Divergent was written by Roth while she was earning her undergraduate degree at Northwestern University. She followed her first novel with Insurgent, which also rose to #1 on the New York Times Best Seller list and Allegiant, the third book in the series, set a HarperCollins record when it was released in October 2013.

What do you get when you throw in a funny hotel clerk, a midget, a hot prostitute, crazy cops, a one eyed pimp, a hired gun man and a legendary crime boss?! You get…THE BAG MAN. I had the chance to watch it before its release on Friday, February 28th!
So did I like it?! I did. I dug the flick.
It’s got a pretty damn solid cast people – lets start off with John Cusack. He plays a hired gun man with a certain set of ‘special skills.’ Next, we have the almighty Robert De Niro – he plays the crime boss who hires John Cusack to retrieve a leather bag. A SPECIAL LEATHER BAG. Pretty simple task right? WRONG! Once he gets it – all hell breaks loose. All John Cusack wants to do is wait in his hotel room for Robert De Niro to show up with his money…but instead – GETS ONE CRAZY NIGHT – - that’s where the midget, crazy cops and one eyed pimp come in. (lol) I just wanted to hug them all – they have some serious issues. (lol)
OHHHHH…and I can’t forget about the lovely prostitute – who’s played by the BEAUTIFUL Rebecca Da Costa! HAWT, HAWT, HAWT!
Like I said before – I liked THE BAG MAN. I liked the dark story – the violence (could have used more blood) – the characters…De Niro and Cusack were on point. They were such smart asses. (lol) The hotel clerk played by Crispin Glover (George McFly in Back to the Future) was hilarious! Every scene he was in – hilarious! The beautiful Rebecca De Costa – what’s NOT to like?!
The only thing I didn’t feel was the very ending. I wish it would’ve gone a different way – BUT HEY…what do I know?! (lol) I’m not a movie director.
I give THE BAG MAN… 3 out of 5 POPCORN’S.
