"No moral, no message, no prophetic tract, just a simple statement of fact: for civilization to survive, the human race has to remain civilized. Tonight's very small exercise in logic from the Twilight Zone."

Whenever I see a bomb shelter movie, I always think about this "Twilight Zone" episode. It is the one where there is limited room in a bomb shelter as a Civil Defense announcement is made. The neighbors turn violent. Likewise in this film, it is the examination of people's character. Plot continuity is unimportant to the film. As a side note, notice the importance of plastic sheeting and duct tape during a terrorist attack.

The action starts from the opening clip. No time for character build-up. The reason why there is no character build-up is that the people represent different aspects of society/human psyche. Mickey, (Michael Biehn) the super of a NYC apartment building has made a shelter in the basement...for himself. He ends up with a group of tenets which he resents and they likewise despise his cigar smoking rough ways. While he is hard-nosed, he looks out for everyone's safety. He won't win any congeniality contests.

The tenets get on each others nerves. Some question Mickey's sanity. Things turn weird as there are outsiders of unknown origin. The film contains some realistic and horrific scenes of killing, torture, dismemberment, menstruation blood, and rape. It examines our core psyche and how it relates to our society: The desire for power and control among men, the competition of age and youth in women for suitors, and the many uses of duct tape. The bunker is a microcosm of society that starts out on equal footing and evolves into a "haves" vs. "have nots". There is a struggle for their world's finite resources...which on a larger scale has happened outside the basement.

F-bomb, sex, explicit sex talk, no nudity. As a metaphor 5 stars. As a sci-fi snuff film 2 stars.

A truly unsettling film, but that's by no means a bad thing. The acting alone is incredible, which just makes the characters' descent that bit more believable. Though you are left with a lingering sense of "what the...?!", it does make you understand how the guys in the shelter were feeling, since the questions left unanswered to the viewer are the same that were facing the characters'. A clever device, in my opinion. I'd definitely recommend this, especially to those who don't mind having their psychological wits tested.

Format: DVD
I think the best way to describe this movie is replace the cast of "Panic Room" with that of "A Clockwork Orange". Sprinkle with a generous dose of "Battle Royale" and "Lord of The Flies" and volia!

The premise is that, as nuclear bombs fall on New York, eight strangers find themselves in a makeshift shelter in the basement. As the weeks and months drift by, and food becomes more scarce, madness and radiation sickness set in.

There are parts of this movie that I loved; the slow classical music over the scenes of frustration and anger; the structure of the whole story is pretty amazing, and the way that the group polarises to two extremes over time is fantastic. With the exception of the beginning and end, there is not much cgi, but that just makes for a more claustrophobic film.

However, there is a "but"... My biggest problem withis movie is the dialogue. It feels like there were two writers - one who was very good, and another who was just of writing school. The setup to each scene was great, but then when the characters interacted it felt really clunky. The dialogue was REALLY ropey in places and almost hindered the story.

In summary, not everyone will love this. If I am honest, the script needs a really good polish, but if you like your films in the "descent in madness" genre (and I do), then you will probably get a lot of this.

It seems like The Divide was the type of film that would divide it's audience. The Divide was directed by Xavier Gens who also made the brilliant horror flick Frontier(s) and the weak blockbuster flick Hitman. So I was really looking forward to this film and I was not disappointed. The film was surprisingly well written yet it's not for everyone, especially those who are looking for light entertainment. The film starts with a vision of a nuclear blast. A group of people run for cover and ends up in a nuclear shelter. The owner of the shelter is a somewhat secluded janitor (brilliantly played by Michael Biehn) who immediately claims control over the group. The shelter is shut off from the rest of the world and no-one is allowed to leave their hiding place until the nuclear dust has cleared up. Not long after though, the first frustrations start to pull the group apart.

Things take a turn for the worse when an alleged rescue team arrives to free the people from their underground prison. Chaos ensues when a group of military men in hazmat suits enter the shelter and forcibly take away a child in a containment bag. In return the group manages to kill one of the hazmat suits, leaving them with one single piece of equipment that can save their lives. The other suits retreat but soon after they return to weld the shelter door shut, eliminating the group's single route of escape. From there on, things only get worse.

Gens keeps tight control over the visual side of things. The Divide is basically a single-location film, but through beautiful camera work and interesting perspectives Gens manages to keep the film attractive. The few scenes outside make for a welcome diversion, but apart from a few decent CG shots there isn't much of the post-apocalyptic world to admire.
