Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that The Divide is an unpleasant, incredibly gruesome nuclear holocaust movie in which survivors slowly turn on one another and sink into degradation. It's filled with blood, gore, humiliation, torture, beatings, and a constant sense of fear and dread. A consensual sexual relationship between adults eventually turns into sexual slavery, followed by rape. Language is also very strong and frequent, with constant use of words like "f--k," "s--t," and "p---y," and characters occasionally smoke and drink. For those interested in the nuclear holocaust genre, something like The Road would be better worth your time.
At first a female character willingly engages in sex with a male character, but their relationship soon degrades into violence (sexual and physical). There's also some innuendo and "girlie pictures" pinned to the walls of the basement.
In addition to beatings, shootings, dead bodies, gurgling blood, and gore, The Divide has rape, torture, humiliation, severed fingers, and the chopping up of decaying bodies. A little girl is kidnapped; children are also seen shaved and experimented upon and stuck in hibernation chambers. There's a sense of fear and dread around nuclear fallout; the characters grow sicker and more horrific looking as the movie goes on. And the tone of all this is realistic, mean, and hopeless, rather than thrilling in any way.
Constant very strong language includes multiple uses of "f--k," "s--t," and "p---y," plus fewer uses of "ass," "a--hole," "c--k," "goddamn," "c--t," and "faggot."
In this very grim, hopeless movie, all human relations fall apart after a disaster, with virtually every character betraying, killing, or brutalizing someone else.
Drugs / Tobacco /
A main character smokes cigars. Other characters occasionally smoke cigarettes and take swigs from bottles of booze (whisky?).
