1.0 out of 5 stars Quite The Disaster May 9 2012
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mindless Oct. 7 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

2.0 out of 5 stars A rather bad film about pointless and obscene slaughter in a smelly shelter Dec 3 2012
By Darth Maciek - Published on Amazon.com
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars Well Made Film But Ultra Violent, Disturbing & Not For Everyone April 14 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
If you are looking for a good end of the world sci-fi / horror film to watch, saw the trailer to "The Divide" and plan to watch it over the weekend, just beware. The Divide is not intended for mainstream audiences. Many people looking for a typical end-of-the-world thriller will likely walk away wondering where the entertainment value was and why would somebody make a movie like this.

I love a good bloody horror movie- but be warned: "The Divide" is HARDCORE. It is an unsanitized look at the downward spiral into madness and human depravity. The violence is hardcore. This is an incredibly unflinching, ugly and utterly disturbing movie. If your stomach isn't strong enough to handle prolonged scenes of rape, torture and on-going acts of gut-wrenching human depravity, then STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS MOVIE! Just remember, you cannot "unsee" something.

All warnings aside, "The Divide" isn't a bad movie at all. In fact, the movie is utterly convincing at setting its tone and mood very early on.

The basic premise is simple: a handful of people running to escape nuclear holocaust end up in an old basement of their apartment building. At first they don't dare open the door to go outside in fear of radiation poisoning. The small group of individuals immediately don't mix very well and it doesn't take long before they are fighting over their food supply, who is going to be the leader, etc. However, something happens and the group gets permanently locked in the basement with no hope of escape. This is when things start to spiral out of control.

The movie's point of view (POV) is that of the survivors: We know what they know- period. We are trapped in the basement with them. We have no answers to the multitude of questions that get raised about the world on the other side of the basement door. Some viewers may not like that many things go unanswered. However, it is everything that IS left UNEXPLAINED which causes the descent into chaos.

The gradual build up to utter chaos and the slow descent into madness is incredibly palpable, and the first hour or so becomes incredibly intense and un-nerving.

This is where The Divide really shines: its feeling of dread, claustrophobia and helplessness is absolutely incredible. Of course, the most important "character" of the movie (if you want to call it that) is the basement in which they are all trapped. The basement sets the tone for the entire move: it is ugly, dimly lit, cruel and forboding.

Once things spiral out of control, audiences will be divided:
1- some will appreciate the movie's raw approach to the chaos that unfolds on the screen;
2- others will be disgusted and disturbed;
3- and yet some others will think the movie goes completely off the rails and over the top in a tasteless attempt to assault and shock its viewers.

Personally, I enjoyed the build up much more than I did the payoff. I guess I'm one of those people who fall into the second category- I wasn't expecting what was coming and I was left utterly disturbed. The last 50 minutes of the movie is a non-stop onslaught of gruesome events.

Not only is the violence hard to endure, but these are not nice people to begin with... when their physical appearance slowly deteriorates due to radiation poisoning (the makeup is incredibly well done) the ugliness of their rotting flesh mirror the the demonic manifestations of their souls.

"The Divide" drips with atmosphere and descends its viewer into an unflinching, unforgiving, inescapable hell. The sign of a good movie is that it accomplishes its goal, and the Divide's goal is to disturb its audience.

PQ is okay, but nothing extraordinary. The picture is dark, dirty and probably not that much superior to standard DVD- although clarity tends to be nice and crisp. Definitely not a polished, demo-worthy image by any stretch... but it was probably also intended to be filmed that way, as the grittiness of the PQ only adds to the overall dark atmosphere.

I can't say "The Divide" is a fun movie to watch. Afterward, I had to watch a few episodes of "Downton Abbey" to lift my spirits back up. But the Divide achieves what it sets out to do, and for that I have to give it credit where credit is due. It isn't a bad movie by any stretch- but it is an ugly movie, and one that many people should not blindly go into without knowing what to brace themselves for. It is way too hardcore for some people, and for that I say... you are warned.

2.0 out of 5 stars NO HOPE May 14 2012
By Mark Turner - Published on Amazon.com
I'm amazed at the movies that depict the results of a nuclear war and how they've changed over the years. In the past, during my childhood years, there was always a sense of hope and cooperation between survivors in those films. During my teen years we were treated to the terrifying glimpse of the reality of the results of this form of war. And now as I've grown older, it seems a new generation feels that man can not do anything but remain destructive and petty. Where has all the hope gone?

THE DIVIDE opens with a nuclear bomb going off while Eva (Lauren German) watches from the window in her high rise apartment. Her boyfriend grabs her arm and they rush off down the stairs hoping to find an escape. Instead when they get to the lobby, they find themselves nearly crushed as the tide of people come running back in to avoid the blast wave and, fortunately for them, they have the chance to join a few that have made it to a bomb shelter in the basement.

The shelter was kept up by the apartment building's super, Mickey (Michael Biehn). And Mickey now intends to rule this basement as he sees fit, sharing what he has with the rest but by with certain restrictions. Some of the people want to leave but Mickey explains to them that the dust from the bomb will make the chances of survival outside next to impossible. It's better to wait it out till things settle.

Tempers and egos flare as each person wants to make their own decisions, failing to take into consideration that simply opening the door could do them all in. The posturing of males wanes back and forth while Mickey still controls them all in his most unpleasant manner.

The psychological aspects of being alive but trapped in a shelter play out throughout this film offering us little hope in a world where people care about one another but would rather focus on themselves only. Eventually help does arrive or so it seems. Instead the protective suited armed group that enters doesn't aid all but just a little girl in their midst. When members of this group later try to find out what's going on, the military welds shut the door and leaves them to themselves. Will they release them later? Who knows?

Before that day can happen the group begins to change. Not only physically but mentally as well. Life among the living deteriorates and the basest behaviors are displayed among them all. It becomes a sad tale in a world where insane attitudes seem to rule.

I'm not averse to movies that depict the world as it is. But it seems that these days a younger generation seems to have no hope in mankind or the world we live in. We've gone from a world where a generation dreamed of reaching to the stars to a world where we accept defeat at the hands of bombs. A new generation of film makers seems to see the worst mankind has to offer and expects that to be the norm rather than the exception. Then again with the self absorbed youths of today perhaps they're on to something.

It may seem as if I've revealed quite a bit about this movie, but most of it could have been witnessed in the trailer. There is much more that happens and all of it depressing as Hell. to me that's not entertainment. I couldn't find much that I could recommend about this film unless none of the things mentioned bothers you. Director Xavier Gens also made the film FRONTIERS which many touted as the best film they'd seen in years. I found that movie to be more disturbing than entertaining as well. But if you liked that one my guess is you'll enjoy this as well. For all others, pass it by.
