    People are complaining about some hard material here. They didn't say it was going to be Alice in Wonderland. Really hate all this woosie reviews! Just watch this good movie and remember life is hard, and this characters are very plausible to me. I really like this pos-apocalyptic survivalist movies and this is one of the best ive seen in 30 years of life.

    Fantastic nail biting apocalypse film. Lauren German and Michael Biehn are both fantastic in the way they portray innocent morality driven people put in one of the most desperate situations imaginable.

    Just what the doctor ordered - when feeling down & wanting some survival horror movie - this one hits the spot with the slow descent into madness. Each step in this journey makes you wake up to be aware of just how far they have come - there maybe just a few minutes between one scene & the next - but the movie makes you acutely aware how much time must have passed.

Some of the plot towards the end isn't exactly what I would have written, but it gets it through rather quick to a satisfyingly desolate ending. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I can't understand all the negativity towards this movie, yes it's brutal and hard to watch, but try to imagine the feeling of being trapped in a basement after a nuclear war, knowing all your friends and loved ones have died, the feeling of helplessness that you're going to die of starvation or worse, and knowing it will take a few hundred years for the radiation to subside, the way certain characters descend into madness is portrayed very well, may i suggest all the haters of the film stick to romcoms in future.

    This is the heaviest movie I have seen in few years. The Divide exactly giving us picture of people with fractured psyche, people, who are broken and trying to survive. Being locked out with no hope of getting outside is turning them slowly into animals. And as we know, human beings are animals that have evolved, which means, that this movie shows real human nature. Epic.

    As the loosely aligned band of survivors turns into a pack of sociopathic loners, the only reasonable conclusion is that they were all pretty rotten to begin with.

    Valuable life lessons always come at a steep price, and this one is no exception. Sorry, but you'll have to shell out for The Divide and then suffer through its nearly two hours of bloody inanities. Weigh the balance, make your choice.

    As it is, The Divide is simply noxious for noxiousness's sake. French director Xavier Gens and writers Karl Mueller and Eron Sheean almost seem to take a kind of perverse pride in seeing how far they can go.
