Is this what fate has in store for humanity?,
This review is from: The Divide [DVD] (DVD)This is certainly a powerful film but it is not for the faint hearted. At its core I think it's about descendance into depravity and ultimately social disintegration; well amongst a small group of survivors who at least represent society. I found it to be a highly disturbing film and the claustrophobic basement setting greatly intensifies that feeling. In this I found glimpses of Cormac McCarthy's description of social decay in "The Road" so I guess the message is the same: that we need to change our ways.
In terms of acting, the entire cast gave sterling performances and were very convincing but I will stress that it leaves a very bitter after taste.
