Review: The Divide (2011)

“The lucky ones died in the blast.” After watching the movie I would say that tagline is accurate. The plot revolves around a group of people, 9 to be exact, that survives a nuclear attack by hiding out in the basement/shelter of their apartment building.The combination of characters is a recipe for disaster from the start: you’ve got the jerk janitor Mickey (Michael Biehn), the bully Bobby (Michael Eklund),  Josh (Milo Ventimiglia) and his  too nice for his own good brother Adrien (Ashton Holmes), quiet Eva and her weak boyfriend Sam (Lauren German and Ivan Gonzales), panicked mother Marilyn and her young daughter Wendy (Rosanna Arquette and Abbey Tickson) and Delvin (Courtney B. Vance).They immediately start bickering and fighting with eachother over their new situation and over what to do. That all stops when a bunch of soldiers in biohazards suits break in through the door, snatching Wendy and shooting Adrien in the shoulder. Josh goes in a recon mission and tries to get Wendy back, but he fails. All after seeing an on-site laboratory, more men in suits and Wendy trapped in some sort of criogenic state? Everything goes downhill from there on.Gens (Xavier Gens, director) tried to play on the exploration of the human psyche and did so quiet well for the most part. Once the characters realize they’re trapped in the basement and they’re going to die, violence ensues and keeps escalating up to the very end(murder, torture, mutilation, rape). Everyone slowly breaks down, physically and mentally deteriorates to the point of full-blown insanity. Continue reading
