Editorial Reviews

Prepare yourself for the unrated movie experience that critics are calling one of the most graphic and extreme end-of-the-world shockers of our time: As nuclear warheads rain down on Manhattan, nine strangers -- Lauren German (Hostel: Part II), Michael Biehn (Aliens, Tombstone), Milo Ventimiglia (''Heroes''), Courtney B. Vance (''Law & Order: Criminal Intent''), Ivan Gonzalez, Michael Eklund (Hunt To Kill), Ashton Holmes (''Revenge'') and Rosanna Arquette (Pulp Fiction) -- barricade themselves in their apartment building's bunker-like basement controlled by the unhinged superintendent. But within days, supplies dwindle, tempers flare and the trapped survivors find themselves overcome by treachery, madness, sexual torment and savage violence. What follows is intense. It is raw. And it is all brutally, horrifyingly real. This is THE DIVIDE.

Customer Reviews

Very good movie but disturbing!
Darla Mathews
If you are one of those people who have to know why something happened or try and make sense of the madness, you may not like this movie.

And there is not a likeable character in this film.

I didn't have any set expectations going into Xavier Gens' provocative survival drama "The Divide." Love it or hate it, one thing is certain: this is a movie that seems destined to polarize (or divide) its audience. Its supporters will call it a modern masterpiece. Guaranteed. Its strongest detractors will call it a nihilistic mess. Absolutely. Maybe its both--a modern messy nihilistic masterpiece. For the most part, the film was savaged by the mainstream media. On the other hand, the movie seemed to connect with audiences at key film festivals including Edinburgh, SXSW, Fant-Asia, and Toronto After Dark. So I crossed my fingers and hoped for the best. Make no mistake, the goal of Gens is to provoke and push buttons with his uncompromisingly unpleasant look at people pushed to extremes. And any film that can elicit strong emotions--good or bad--is a rarity in this movie world where we make homogenized formula pieces designed by committee.

"The Divide" literally starts with the end of the world as we know it. As a nuclear attack ravages the city, a small band of survivors makes it to safety in their apartment building basement. This disparate group seem well supplied for the moment thanks to the brusque building super (Michael Biehn) who instantly takes on the alpha male position. Amidst the usual squabbles, pettiness, and annoyances--their plan to wait out the radiation takes a radical turn when the outside world invades in a dangerously uncomfortable way. As time passes, the group faces increasingly unpleasant choices and this little microcosm of society starts to break down in harrowing and disturbing ways. Although the film is marketed as a horror film, in no way do I see it in this context.

I'll start by saying I purchased this film because I respect Milo Ventimiglia's previous work and figured I'd give it a chance. I'm not usually one for post-apocalyptic films as I often find them too depressing to watch so I wasn't expecting to really care for it but this film really blew me away.

This movie is dark. Dark, intense and very powerful. It's full of things we all fear but most of all it encompasses the depravity of human beings when put in a situation such as what befalls the characters in this film. The cover of the movie itself should be enough to tell you that this isn't going to be a happy film. Blood, violence and even a considerable amount of rape are all in this film and it's all done so very intensely! This film shows you the horrifying and frightening things people will do to each other in order to survive, when crammed into the basement of an apartment building. This movie didn't hold back. The characters didn't hold back.

Milo Ventimiglia's character of "Josh" was absolutely brilliant as was Lauren German who played "Eva". Ventimiglia's performance went above and beyond. The transformation that Josh goes through is just unbelievable and so very dark, that it left me really speechless. I have to say, this is probably Milo's best work yet.

The Divide is raw and has a very gritty feel to it, which I really liked. The director did a fantastic job, in my opinion. It's certainly not for everyone but for those who can appreciate a dark and intense film like this, should really give it a shot. I thought it was absolutely brilliant and I'm glad I purchased it. It gets five stars from me.

One star for the pleasant and mood-appropriate music throughout the movie. The plot (group of people trapped in confined space) has been done over and over in different settings, nothing new there. There are plenty of post-apocalyptic movies out there that are much, much better.

Honestly, you would think scriptwriters could learn how to use the internet, since it is fairly obvious they have no practical education in using a library. I have a number of problems with this film, most having to do with filmmakers completely ignoring anything resembling reality. (You can go to ready.gov to read about nuclear blast emergencies, and what to do in case of one)

***********Spoilers**************

1. If you were that close to the blast they watch, it's game over. The flash travels at the speed of light, the following blast wave travels at the speed of sound (approximately 768 mph). At the very least, they would have been blind. Yet, they make it to the basement with no ill effects. They never show a blast wave. Quite some time later the building falls without crashing through the basement.

2. They are fairly close to the blast. Accute radiation sickness kills in under 48 hours, depends on your level of exposure. They only show some signs of radiation sickness (bleeding gums and hair loss), what you would expect from someone a distance away from the blast site. They never show signs of nausea, they eat and eat and eat all through the movie. They never get infections, even the guy who gets shot. Based on the symptoms they DO show, 50% of them should have been dead within 4-6 weeks.

3. EMP. Ok, lets say their electrical equipment survives. Where, exactly, is the electricity they are using coming from?
