The one valuable lesson gleaned from The Divide? We learn a multitude of new uses for duct tape! However, one of them should be to seal the film canisters of The Divide shut to save you from seeing it.

It will take someone without much humanity at all to enjoy this film.

With so many varying elements, it ultimately fails to make good use of any, be it the nuclear fallout, sociological breakdown or governmental, scientific experiment angle tantalisingly thrown in but never made full use of.

Ultimately the main problem with The Divide was the characters. If you're going to set your entire movie in a single room, you need interesting relationships to make the story pop.

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.
April 9, 2015
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.
April 9, 2015
Gens' film, while a far darker vision of the day the world ends, is more sexually sordid than satisfying. Save the humans? Why bother?
April 9, 2015
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.
November 30, 2012
A clunky and ugly little film that I was more than happy to forget.
April 29, 2012
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.

Michael Biehn and Rosanna Arquette are in the cast but not helped by a cursory screenplay.
April 20, 2012
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.
April 15, 2012
Nasty, unrelenting and likely to make your hair fall out.
January 30, 2012
THE DIVIDE aims for a dark, cutthroat tone, focusing on exploitation elements without the thrills that are usually involved. The result is both extremely dismal and extremely uncomfortable.
January 22, 2012
It's not a film for everyone. Heck, it's not a film for anyone, yet underneath the oppressive atmosphere of this insistently nasty movie are a few persuasive scenes of panic set against a terrifying doomsday scenario.
January 20, 2012
The characters might be suffering from claustrophobia, but the audience is most likely to suffer from boredom.
January 20, 2012
The tale quickly degenerates from a dramatically promising clash of personalities under pressure to a gratuitous display of rape, murder, torture, dismemberment, madness, ugly misogyny, naked racism and yelling.
