Boring, predictable, dismal, uninspired. The acting falls flat. If you have a choice between the apocalypse and watching this, the former is the better choice.

We wait, from one cringe-inducing, hide-your-face-from-the-screen act after another, to see how much worse the behavior will become. Full Review

In Xavier Gens's The Divide, the revolution will not be televised, only the degradation of human civility--and in a mire of clichés more toxic to the mind than the radioactive dust that causes everyone's hair to fall out in the wake of a nuclear explosion. Full Review

The Hollywood Reporter
Relentlessly unpleasant and nihilistic in its approach and execution, The Divide is best appreciated as a virtual instruction manual on how not to behave during a crisis. Full Review
Joe Leydon
Plodding and repetitive in its efforts to maintain pressure-cooker intensity, The Divide resembles nothing so much as an extended "Twilight Zone" episode as it brings a sci-fi twist to a familiar scenario about stressed characters who bring out the worst in each other while trapped in close quarters. Full Review

Time Out New York
Unintentionally true to its title, The Divide first goes for a similar bleakness (it barely registers as entertainment), then lurches into a rousing, vengeful finale; both sides of the equation add up to less than zero. Full Review
