Jeremy of The Daily Rotation wrote, "Director of the controversial horror film Frontier(s) and one the better video game adaptations, Hitman, Xavier Gens is for the most part, an unknown ready to breakout. He doesn’t have a particular style that can be picked out from a mile away, but he does have an eye for taking simple concepts and expanding them into richer content. Hitman could have easily been ruined if a more mainstream director took the reins, but Gens respectfully remained faithful to the series while adding enough action and flare to warrant a big screen adaptation. The Divide is a post-apocalyptic film that’s more concerned with its characters than the actual end of the world setting. That is however, both the films biggest strength and biggest weakness."
