You need to have a strong stomach to get into it.
9 April 2012 | by saadgkhanSee all my reviews

The Divide – CATCH IT (B+) The Divide is a violent post-apocalyptic thriller, which takes you into the twisted sick mind of humans. The movie starts with the world collapses and bunch of survivors end up into their building's basement. From there the struggle for the survival starts, not only they have to fight the people outside but also the people they're trapped inside. The Divide is a pleasant surprise I don't know why it got bad reviews from the reviewers all over but I think as horror/thriller fans it's defiantly a good surprise. The best thing about the movie is it takes it time to grow on you and the characters also grow as the movie processed. In the beginning people who seems nice becomes utmost evil and demented in the end. There are many sequences in the movie which will make you squirm and feel disgusted. The performances by Milo Ventimiglia, Michael Eklund & Rosanna Arquette are worth mentioning, they have literally taken the psychic sickness to next level. Lauren German as the main protagonist is good though she lacks star power or charisma of the main lead. Ashton Holmes, Abbey Thickson Michael Biehn & Ivon Gonzales did a fine job. On the whole, it takes a very strong heart to go through the Divide. And keep one thing in mind that it's not for the faint hearted people. You need to have a strong stomach to get into it.
