Synopsis


The Divide
In the wake of a disaster, the tenants of an apartment building turn on one another in this thriller from director Xavier Gens. New York is hit by an unexpected nuclear attack, and Eva (Lauren German) and her husband Sam (Ivan Gonzalez) rush to the basement of their apartment block, believing the cellar is their best bet for safety. They soon discover the basement is the domain of building manager Mickey (Michael Biehn), who is a survivor of the 9/11 attacks and doesn't put much trust in anyone. Convinced venturing outside will kill them all, Mickey refuses to let anyone leave, and Eva and Sam are trapped with macho bully Josh (Milo Ventimigila), Josh's soft-spoken brother Adrien (Ashton Holmes), loudmouth Bobby (Michael Eklund), high-strung single mother Marilyn (Rosanna Arquette), Marilyn's daughter Wendy (Abbey Thickson), and an impatient man named Delvin (Courtney B. Vance). As the days in the basement turn to weeks and supplies of food and water run low, the neighbors become increasingly tense and violent; eventually, the men and women form cliques and turn against one another. The Divide received its world premiere at the 2011 South by Southwest Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    A nuclear detonation occurs in new york and a small group of people make it to the bomb shelter in the basement of the building they're in. They force their way in as the door is being closed. No-one knows why this has happened or the extent of it. Terrorists? War? They know no more than we would in the real situation. Tensions grow and group dynamics disintegrate rapidly. An incursion by unspecified soldiers in bio hazard armor ignites the survivors and violence erupts towards each other. Radiation poisoning begins and insanity blooms rapidly among the unstable members. Everything goes drastically sideways as the darkest tendencies rise and the stronger prey on the weaker in an atmosphere where rules no longer matter because civilization may no longer exist and they're all dying anyway so go nuts. Literally. Visually compelling and an all around lesson in how F*ed up mankind is and how far we can go when we lose it. If Clive Barker were to create an apocalypse survival situation this would be it.

    The actors are people from different cancelled TV shows. The plot really doesn't progress at all. You don't really know why anything is happening. The language is absolutely over the top. I wouldn't suggest anyone see this movie.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
