Hits its stride in Act II, and once that moment has passed, you're stuck with one irritating slog toward a rather disappointing climax.

It isn't long before the plot and characters have nowhere left to go but down to the depths of human depravity. And by the end it's impossible to see the point.

"The Divide" is an ugly film, both visually and thematically. But it only really rubs you the wrong way if you take it seriously, which we can't imagine anyone would.

Whatever edge of fear and tension the movie might have possessed is traded for blistering annoyance as the cast near-cannibalizes one another while screeching at top volume for over 120 minutes.

Gens' film, while a far darker vision of the day the world ends, is more sexually sordid than satisfying. Save the humans? Why bother?

Time Out

Its nihilism feels cynical rather than authentically bleak, and the increasingly histrionic scenes start to resemble an indulgent actors' workshop that has spun out of control.

The Divide is extremely nasty and relentlessly bleak but it's worth seeing if you like that sort of thing.

A clunky and ugly little film that I was more than happy to forget.

A genuinely disturbing descent into madness. You just happen to have seen it all before.

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

A genre film that's both a little too long and a little too brutal for mainstream tastes ... a minor cult movie, beloved by a few discriminating connoisseurs of small-scale apocalyptic horror and pretty much ignored by the rest of us.

Observer (UK)

A nasty, efficient film that makes the imminent end of life on Earth seem like the judgment of a wise God.

Michael Biehn and Rosanna Arquette are in the cast but not helped by a cursory screenplay.

One to avoid.

No one has any goals other than to be the most annoying person in the room and there's plenty of competition in that department. It's a waste of a good setup as the situation and location are well drawn.

Gens's skilful direction and the throat-grabbing performances from the cast add to the tension.

It is all rather unremittingly grim. Like watching one of those elaborate 'Seventies social behavioral experiments designed to illustrate how crap human nature is.
David Hughes
Empire Magazine

Nasty, unrelenting and likely to make your hair fall out.

Matt Glasby

April 10, 2012
Gens' impressively grim film has points to make about post-9/11 militarism, but you get the sense that humanity disgusts him so much he'd rather leave his characters to the roaches.

There's plenty of septic green and bilious brown in this basement, but fortunately no black and white.
Anton Bitel
Little White Lies
March 4, 2012
this uncompromising, unapologetically unpleasant addition to the post-apocalyptic subgenre invites us, along with Eva, to bear witness to the end of everything that we take for granted and hold dear, with all sentiment and hope forever locked out.
