2. The Divide (2012)
"The Lucky Ones Died In The Blast," reads the tagline for The Divide. Grim and gruesome, this film shows what happens when a group of New York City residents take refuge in an apartment basement/bomb shelter during a nuclear strike. According to Martin, it's one of the most realistic post-apocalyptic films he's seen. "The behavior elements of how people start reacting and behaving in the aftermath, it's very much right on, at least in my experience, and I have some 75,000 hours in the field. It shows you the real human nature of man. Without law and order and structure, men are very horrible," he laughs. "We have instincts — normal, natural instincts, and we revert back to them when we're not policed. You have the rape, the intimidation, the control, all of the raw elements of human nature are in that movie."
