Probably one of the worst movies I’ve ever had the privilege to gaze upon in recent years, the Divide makes itself out to be a post-apocalyptic basement survival story after a nuclear strike hits a city and most of the western world. Karma.
It starts off good enough, and I’ll admit has you in a frenzy right off the get-go wondering who will be the asshole, who will die first, who really is the alpha male in the group and who will grow a thumb on their forehead first as a result of radiation. You really don’t see it coming. What follows afterwards however is borderline hilarious for a person in the right mind. The decisions and inactions of particular characters (COUGH, THE FRENCH) are almost unbelievable, it’s so frustrating it’s like telling someone you know to take the million dollars on a game show and instead watch them slowly spout out the words “no” over and over. None of the characters show you any significance seeing as they are all about as useful as a piece of gum on the side of my shoe and the soldiers outside their door enforced this idea when they sealed them inside with their own filth and sexual diseases.
It drags on a lot, giving you nothing except a couple yelling fits and a poor mother who turns into the biggest whore-bag of the bunch. Overall I’d probably pass this movie in a second, and even if you do by chance get caught up seeing it you won’t remember most of the film by the time you walk out your front door.
