If this film was a sea route, there would be a shipping warning in place to ward other unwary sailors away from these ‘turd-ulent’ waters. The Divide is at best a B movie, in this case standing for Bollocks.
After a nuclear attack on New York City nine hysterical survivors seek refuge inside a claustrophobic bomb shelter and before you know it have morphed into characters from the TV series Oz and all that comes with it. The bleak tale which then ensues paints such a primitive view of human nature that I wouldn’t be surprised to learn the original screen play was inked by Oliver the “Humanzee.” Surely, Michael Biehn (The Terminator, Aliens, Tombstone) deserved better than this, while Rosanna Arquette and the other actors won’t be putting this chugnut of a movie on their resumes any time soon.
