"How do you tell if a movie is good"or for that matter,if your favourite actor is in it,
would it be a must see for you,well there is not too many of them in this one for me,
some i know some i don't,so i won't nit-pick on that subject,let's talk about this movie
The Divide,the uncut version and let me say,this is bloody uncut,Movie opens with our
titular character [Lauren German]i will use real Names only,staring out a glass window
with one drop of tear rolling down her face,watching the world supposedly coming to an
end,us as a viewer get no mention of what's taking place or how this is happening,all you
see is big explosion's and buildings falling down,you hear this voice yelling at her to hurry
we have no time,you find out later it's her boyfriend,so they run down to this bunker-like
basement,were our other character Michael Biehn lives [or work i don't know],so you have
nine strangers in this bunker-whatever,now I'm going to try and not spoil it,trust me i haven't
yet,remember when i said we didn't know what was going on we still don't,and this is were the
movie took a 360 degree turn,oh boy it turn all right,if this is supposed to be the end of the world,
boy i want no part of these people,this is the movie that the critics are calling the most graphic and
extreme end of-the-world shockers you will ever see,and That's putting it mildly folks,i actually stop
watching the movie and took the Disc out,i was yelling at the T.V.

I don't think I've been so disappointed in a film. I love "end of the world" scenarios, but this film failed in nearly every way imaginable. It gets off to a pretty good start. The world has been bombed to ashes from war, and we are introduced to a small group of survivors, who have found refuge in a bomb shelter. The next twenty minutes or so, does a decent job at exploring the different types of characters we will be following throughout the movie, while giving us vague hints at what is going on outside. After that, the movie just falls flat on it's face. The group dynamic makes no sense whatsover, and you will be screaming at the characters to make at least one logical decision. The script is non-sensical mess, it's not even funny. There is no flow to the story whatsoever. It's just one nasty scene after another, with no rhyme or reason as to why the characters are doing what they're doing.

To be clear, I'm not offended by movies with a nasty tone. I love dark, and twisted movies that this was trying to be. I'm offended by stupidity, and this movie just kept on serving it up. Just brutal.

Absolutely nothing meaningful happens in this movie. I was misled by the high ratings. It has senseless violence and gore. The characters don't behave in a believable manner and the details of their isolation make no sense at all. It's not possible to lose your awareness that this is a movie. Great movies are the ones we get immersed, where we forget the world around us and we are so focused on the movie that we forget it is a movie. This movie, however: you can't for more than a few minutes get into it. But that's just my opinion. Lots of other viewers liked this film. I cannot recommend it.

Sure To Divide Its Audience, This Apocalyptic Nightmare Is Likely To Elicit Strong Emotions One Way Or Another March 31 2012
By K. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
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. This is a straight-out drama about people trapped in close quarters disintegrating into madness and desperation--and, on those terms, I found it wildly effective and affecting. It's not an easy experience, but it's a memorable one.

The movie never attempts to explain what's happening in the real world in any tangible way. It is this uncertainty that drives the story's fear. I'm giving "The Divide" a strong recommendation not because it's a perfect movie (far from it), but because it takes a familiar concept and really swings for the fences. It is bold and pushes conventional boundaries. As I already said, this may cause you to loathe the movie. And that's a perfectly reasonable response. I take an alternate viewpoint, this is a movie that really stands out. The characters can be instantly unlikable or over-the-top and the screenplay pushes too hard in the initial confrontations, but as the movie settles into its rhythm--I was fully on board for this claustrophobic nightmare. In addition to Biehn, there are other familiar faces including Rosanna Arquette, Milo Ventimiglia, Ashton Holmes, and Courtney B. Vance. The cast is really committed to go to dark places and is led by moral compass Lauren German in a nicely understated contrast.

In the end, "The Divide" may be a gamble (especially for those expecting a horror film). But for those that love the movie, it is one that pays off. If you're looking for something intense, provocative, disturbing, uncomfortable, and different--try this for extreme human drama. And the Blu-ray looks and sounds terrific. KGHarris, 3/12.

Intense is an Understatement! April 27 2012
By Reina Ursa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
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.

A rather bad film about pointless and obscene slaughter in a smelly shelter Dec 3 2012
By Maciej - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I didn't like this film and I regret that I bought it, for many reasons, not the least of which is that I was deceived by the image and teaser on the cover of the DVD.

I thought I was buying a SF film about survivors of a nuclear war trying to go on with their lifes. This film however is something diiferent. The original cataclysm is barely shown and is never explained - we never learn what exactly happened. The whole story is in fact a study in the slow but certain disappearance of all social order and even purely human reflexes amongst a group of people who are trapped in a cage without exit (an underground shelter) and with dwindling food and water supply...

The film is full of incredibly vulgar language - it seems that absolutely everybody speaks with the "F" bomb beginning every sentence. There are purely obscene moments of sexual nature (nothing to do with love-making). Excrements, menstrual blood, rotting bodies and swarming cockroaches, all play considerable role by moments. There are very graphic scenes of murder, rape and torture. In one word, this film has more in common with "Saw" franchise than with SF movies. This is most of the plot and of the scenario - and this film REALLY disgusted me.

I would rate this thing one star, if it was not for the last five minutes, which contain one pretty cruel but really intelligent twist, which I didn't see coming at all. I also must admit that actors did a rather good job and the cast is strong: Michael Biehn, Rosanna Arquette, Courtney B. Vance, Milo Ventimiglia and Ashton Holmes all did very well. It is however Lauren German (an actress I never heard about before), playing the main female role, who offers the best performance - she sure can act.

But other than the last five minutes, watching this film was for me personally a VERY unpleasant experience. My advice - avoid it, except if you really like films in which people torture, rape and murder other people in the middle of rotting bodies and crawling insects...

Bad guys and worse guys May 26 2013
By Michael J. Tresca - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product
"The Divide" is one of those films that could easily be a play. It takes place exclusively in a bomb shelter where several survivors have fled after a nuclear blast. The apartment tenants have no idea what happened, and they are largely at the mercy of the superintendent, Mickey (Michael Beihn). The survivors all have relationships with each other - some are failed at relationships like Eva (Lauren German) and Sam (Ivan Gonzalez), others are broken families like half-brothers Bobby (Michael Eklund) and Adrien (Ashton Holmes). What starts out as merely survival unravels in a post-apocalyptic tale where there are no good guys, only survivors.

At first the team is united in survival and threatened only by their worst fears, but gradually that changes as the existential threat of outsiders becomes very real. Soldiers break into the room in biohazard suits and kidnap a child, representing the last hope of the survivors. The survivors manage to fight them off and then even turn the tables for a little while; "The Divide" is notable in that many films of this type would leave the threat unseen off screen. Here, "The Divide" shows you what's on the other side, and the knowledge only makes things that much worse.

The soldiers decide to weld the survivors in, and then things go from bad to awful. The group splits into two, the divide of the title, each side claiming a woman. They barter for food, water, electricity, and sex, and the imbalance between the two groups gradually turns into a rift as it becomes clear who has the upper hand. It's not long before Eva realizes that there is no hope for her when she finally decides to take her fate into her own hands.

There are no happy endings here; no heroes, no good guys - just bad guys, and worse guys, and they are always, always guys. This is not a feel-good film. It is a brooding insight into the awfulness of human nature at its worst. It's also a refreshingly zombie-free meditation on the horror of being alone with other people.

Did I miss something? Oct. 23 2012
By SMULLET - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Polarizing. Intense. Realistic.

These are the words I'm seeing people using for this movie. I feel like maybe I watched a different film then them did.

Polarizing: I really don't know what was polarizing about this movie. If you're saying you either like it or you don't... sure, but that's pretty much every movie. I actually found myself as middle ground about this movie as I've ever been, and I usually have a strong opinion one way or the other. Polarizing would be maybe... Idk something that divides people on a deep philosophical basis. This definitely won't be doing that.

Realistic: No. Just no. This movie has no real thought for attention to detail, although I do feel like the portrayal of how people would start to turn ugly in a similar circumstance was well done and quite believable, and that's obviously the most important detail they needed to hit, and they certainly did. That being said, I found myself really distracted by so many little details that shouldn't have been glossed over, and the really ill-timed bad acting and script. I found myself thinking about bed-sores for half the movie (if you've seen this movie and you know what bed-sores are you probably know why).

Intense: sure... it was intense. Sorta. Its really hard to get into a movie where you have almost no connection with the characters. The character development in this film sucks. The acting is spotty at key moments, although one of the guys does a fabulous job and overall the acting is decent. Another problem with this film that keeps it from truly being intense is *semi-spoiler alert* the hazmat guys. That was such a stupid section it totally had me checking out for the rest of the movie. Maybe someone somewhere thought that was a reasonable situation that made any kind of sense... no.

Over all I sorta enjoyed this movie. I wouldn't watch it again probably, but it wasn't an unpleasant experience really. I feel like this movie is a great concept but was trivialized by the directors idea for the end. I don't want to give it away, but I think the directors had a vision for the final scene of the film (naturally), but to make it happen they had to really force things, and I mean REALLY force things.
