Review: Brutally Nihilistic ‘The Divide’ a Joy for Hardcore Horror Fans but Too Bleak for Most

The Divide begins at the end.  But not like Memento, which presented its story in reverse chronological order.  Rather the second English Language film by French director Xavier Gens opens at the end of civilization as we know it.  A woman’s beautiful blue eyes reflect red and orange explosions as a familiar New York City skyline crumbles.  We’ve just passed the tipping point.

Released in April on a Blu-ray/DVD combo, Anchor Bay presents The Divide, starring: Lauren German, Michael Biehn, Milo Ventimiglia, Courtney B. Vance, Ivan Gonzalez, Michael Eklund, Abbey Thickson, Ashton Holmes, and Rosanna Arquette.
